Abstract:

"Winner of three Obie Awards, a New York Drama Critics Award, and the Pulitzer Prize, David Mamet is considered one of the most prolific and powerful voices in contemporary American theatre. Weasels and Wisemen is the first major study of Mamet's work to investigate the moral vision and cultural poetics upon which this playwright's vision is founded. Tracing the development of Mamet's canon over a period of 20 years, Leslie Kane examines the subtle link between the moral vision and ethical behavior that sets apart Mamet's theatre and film. In addition, Kane uniquely highlights the significance of Jewish values and cultural experience that have been overlooked in Mamet's canon."--Jacket.
