Beyond minimalism Beckett's late style in the theater by Enoch Brater( file )
17 editions published between 1987 and 1991 in English and held by 1,561 libraries worldwide
Beckett's later dramatic works defy generic classification as pure theatre, poetry, or prose. Instead, Brater argues, they forge a new aesthetic for themselves. Analysing Beckett's use of disjointed body imagery; mask; abstract monologue; and the experimentation in film and video in the 1980s, Brater demonstrates Beckett's truly avant-garde departure from our concepts of the 'theatrical'

Arthur Miller : a playwright's life and works by Enoch Brater( Book )
7 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 1,078 libraries worldwide
"Arthur Miller is one of the most highly regarded and widely performed playwrights of our time. With his probing and perceptive dramas, he succeeded in charting the landscape of the American psyche to create classics of modern theater that have found enthusiastic audiences all over the world. Enoch Brater's concise literary biography - the first new study to appear since the playwright's death - gives the general reader a welcome introduction to this most political and moral of writers, whose keen social conscience and insights into human nature have made him a cornerstone of contemporary culture." "Professor Brater follows Miller's career from his prizewinning student days at the University of Michigan, through the landmark success of his 1949 drama, Death of a Salesman, to his doomed marriage to the actress Marilyn Monroe and beyond. Examining seminal works, including All My Sons, The Crucible and A View from the Bridge, as well as commenting on Miller's journalism, fiction, screenplays and acclaimed autobiography, Brater looks at how the writer achieved a fusion of political allegory, family drama, realism and expressionism, and themes of unrest and redemption to stunning - and often devastating - effect. Supported by a wide selection of personal and public photographs, this new study is an informed and timely study of Miller's life and works."--BOOK JACKET
The drama in the text Beckett's late fiction by Enoch Brater( file )
9 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 1,000 libraries worldwide
The Drama in the Text argues that Beckett's late fiction, like his radio plays, demands to be read aloud, since much of the emotional meaning lodges in its tonality. In Beckett's haunting prose work the reader turns listener, collaborating with the sound of words to elucidate meaning from the silence of the universe. Enoch Brater ranges across all of Beckett's work, quoting from it liberally, and makes connections mainly with other writers, but also with details drawn from the entire Western cultural heritage. Brater serves as an authoritative and persuasive guide to the rich texture of such a difficult but compelling vocabulary, providing recognition, insight, and accessibility

Postdramatic theatre and the political : international perspectives on contemporary performance by Enoch Brater( file )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 35 libraries worldwide
Is postdramatic theatre political and if so how? How does it relate to Brecht's ideas of political theatre, for example? How can we account for the relationship between aesthetics and politics in new forms of theatre, playwriting, and performance? This book discuss crucial aspects of the issues raised by the postdramatic turn in theatre in the late twentieth and early twenty-first century: the status of the audience and modes of spectatorship in postdramatic theatre; the political claims of postdramatic theatre; postdramatic theatre's ongoing relationship with the dramatic tradition; its dialectical qualities, or its eschewing of the dialectic; questions of representation and the real in theatre; the role of bodies, perception, appearance and theatricality in postdramatic theatre; as well as subjectivity and agency in postdramatic theatre, dance and performance. Offering analyses of a wide range of international performance examples, scholars in this volume engage with Hans-Thies Lehmann's theoretical positions both affirmatively and critically, relating them to other approaches by thinkers ranging from early theorists such as Brecht, Adorno and Benjamin, to contemporary thinkers such as Fischer-Lichte, Rancière and other
