Staging modern American life
popular culture in the experimental theatre of Millay, Cummings, and Dos Passos
Thomas Fahy

Published 2011 by Palgrave Macmillan in New York .

About the Book

"The theatrical works of Millay, Cummings, and Dos Passos, which have largely been marginalized in discussions of theater history and literary scholarship, offer a hybrid theater that integrates the popular with the formal, the mainstream with the experimental. Fahy examines the integration of and challenges to popular culture found in their works and offers new readings with an eye to American cultural studies and the impact of mass entertainment on modern life"--
