Summary
  • "Memory-Theater and Postmodern Drama argues that the way memory is conceptualized has changed in postmodernism, and that the theatricalization of this new memory discourse has produced some of the most powerful works on the contemporary stage. The playwrights discussed - Samuel Beckett, Heiner Muller, Sam Shepard, Suzan-Lori Parks, and Thomas Bernhard - create a range of "memory-theaters" that give sophisticated and often moving expression to the ways we remember and forget and to the traces of a no longer cohesive past."--Jacket
  • "This book will be of interest to students of post-modern culture, contemporary theater and drama, and memory studies. It should also appeal to those interested in the representations of trauma - discussed here both in relation to the Holocaust and to slavery - and to students of contemporary German literature, especially since too little exists in English on the work of Thomas Bernhard and Heiner Muller."--Jacket
