Summary
  • In this book, Jeanette Malkin considers a broad spectrum of contemporary plays in which characters are created, coerced, and destroyed by language. The playwrights examined are diverse and include Handke, Pinter, Bond, Albee, Mamet, and Shepard, as well as Vaclav Havel, who is represented by two plays: The Garden Party and The Memorandum. These playwrights portray language's power over our political, social, and interpersonal worlds. The violence that language does, the "tyranny of words," grabs center stage in their plays. Characters are manipulated and defined through language, their actions and identity limited by verbal options. Writing in a variety of idioms and styles, the playwrights all reveal the link between language and power
  • The book will be of interest to students and scholars of drama, theatre history, American and European literature, and comparative literature
