|Series Title:||Directors in perspective.|
This book, the first comprehensive study of Wilson, traces the evolution of the director's astonishing career as well as his complex relationship to language and his visual rhetoric. It explains how he renovated the stage and describes in detail major productions such as: Deafman Glance, Einstein on the Beach, and the CIVILwarS. Also, the psychological significance of Wilson's work, largely ignored until now, is considered along with his artistic goals, and a detailed analysis of the major themes and images that recur in his works.
