  • Narrating the Past through Theatreby Michael Y. Bennett

    Palgrave Macmillan 2012; US$ 43.33

    This cutting-edge title explores how narrating the past both conflicts and creates an interesting relationship with drama's 'continuing present' that arcs towards an unpredictable future. Theatre both brings the past alive and also fixes it, but through the performance process, allowing the past to be molded for future (not-yet-existent) audiences. more...

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2013; US$ 149.95

    The story of arts and cultural policy in the twenty-first century is inherently of global concern no matter how local it seems.

  • Narrative, Perception, Language, and Faithby Dr Edmond Wright

    Palgrave Macmillan 2005; US$ 120.00

    There have been many voices in disciplines as various as philosophy, history, psychology, hermeneutics, literary theory, and theology that have claimed that narrative is fundamental to all that is human. Here is a book that, in an engaging and amusing way, presents a coherent thesis to that effect, connecting the Joke and the Story (with all that comedy... more...

  • Narrative Bodiesby Daniel Punday

    Palgrave Macmillan 2003; US$ 125.00

    Although the body has recently emerged throughout the humanities and social sciences as an object revealing the power and limits of representation, the study of narrative has almost entirely ignored human corporeality. As this book shows, attention to the body raises uncomfortable questions about the historicity of basic narrative concepts like character,... more...

  • A Primer in Theatre Historyby William Grange

    UPA 2012; US$ 29.99

    Grange covers productions, theories, innovations, and plays from ancient Greece to the Spanish Golden Age.

Descriptions of films augment discussions of theatre, helping readers better analyze theatre performance.... more...

  • The Roots of Theatreby Eli Rozik

    University of Iowa Press 2005; US$ 29.95

    The topic of the origins of theatre is one of the most controversial in theatre studies, with a long history of heated discussions and strongly held positions.
