Intertextuality has been an under-explored area in studies of dramatic and performance texts. The innovative findings of these scholars testify to the continuing vitality of research in American drama and performance.
Susan Glaspell: New Directions in Critical Inquiry continues the tradition started by Ben-Zvi and brings it up to date, featuring new work in various post-structural critical approaches from leading Glaspell scholars, including Americanists Mary E. Papke and Kristina Hinz-Bode; legal scholar, Patricia L. Bryan; cultural historian, J. Ellen Gainor; feminist biographer, Barbara Ozieblo; performance artist, Lucia V. Sander; and classicist Marie Molnar.
Praise for the book:
"Professor Carpentier's study of Glaspell's fiction stands as the most important work on the subject and has led to a renewed interest in the subject."
"There is growing interest in Glaspell's writing, and this book should find a solid readership from the following fields: American drama and fiction studies, American studies, Women's studies, and Cultural Studies. I fully support the project and encourage your press to publish it."
Linda Ben-Zvi, Professor of Theatre Studies, Tel Aviv Unviesrity
