Pressestimmen"The structure of the text is clearly laid out and justified....Chronologically ordered, the eight chapters each contain a pair of essays, one written by a historian and one by a literary critic ....the authors have been able to engage in a pointed dialogue....Each article is thought provoking, and the authors successfully create a collaborative style of dialogue promised by the course's original concept, often referring to each other's work and carefully avoiding repetitive information....the articles are convincing, intelligently written and concise. The variety of articles offered will be of particular value to theater historians and scholars with interdisciplinary interests." Erica Kylander-Clark, Theatre Studies
