Pressestimmen

"In Verbal Violence in Contemporary Drama, Jeanette R. Malkin considers plays by Pinter, Mamet, Albee and Shepard that use the manipulation of language and logical thinking to destroy institutions, character and interpersonal relationships." Backstage "...Malkin's significant contribution lies in her solid work of unifying under this conceptual banner an otherwise unwieldy amalgam of contemporary plays." Robert Baker-White, Essays in Theatre "No one should teach plays by Ionesco, Pinter, Havel, Kroetz, Bond, Mamet, Shepard, or Albee without reading Verbal Violence..." Servanne Woodward, Comparative Drama
