Summary:
This collection of original essays in honor of American drama critic Ruby Cohn captures the rich mixture of discourses on the act of theater. The variety of approaches - from formalist to feminist, pays tribute to the centrality of Beckett in any evaluation of just what constitutes the "modern" in modern, contemporary, post-modern, and experimental drama.
