About the Author:

ALAN ACKERMAN is an Associate Professor in the Department of English at the University of Toronto, Canada, author of The Portable Theatre: American Literature and the Nineteenth-Century Stage, and editor of the journal Modern Drama.

MARTIN PUCHNER is the H. Gordon Garbedian Professor of English and Comparative Literature at Columbia University, USA, and the author of Stage Fright: Modernism, Anti-Theatricality, and Drama (2002) and Poetry of the Revolution: Marx, Manifestos, and the Avant-Gardes (2006). His edited books and introductions include Six Plays by Henrik Ibsen (2003), Lionel Abel's Tragedy and Metatheatre (2003), and The Communist Manifesto and Other Writings (2005). He is co-editor of the forthcoming Norton Anthology of Drama and the editor of Theatre Survey.

Review:

"...an excellent text for a variety of courses, from those focused on modernism or modern drama to courses on theatre, art, and performance history"--Professor Tamsen Wolf, Princeton University, USA

"...an invaluable collection of essays on modernist European and American theatre by the top scholars in our field."--Shawn-Marie Garrett, Assistant Professor of Theatre, Barnard College, Columbia University, USA

"In Against Theatre, Ackerman and Puchner gather a distinguished group of scholars, who bring a sharp sense of modernist antitheatricality and its subversion to bear on the many genres, technologies, and literary instigations of modern performance. It's a book full of surprises and makes a welcome addition both to the literature and teaching of modernism and its orphaned stage."--W.B. Worthen, J.L. Styan Collegiate Professor of Drama, University of Michigan, USA

"...an overwhelmingly worthwhile project. The indeterminacy of "anti-theatricality" as a term, combined with an interdisciplinary focus, leads to a productive and engaging plurality in Against Theatre."--Amy Simpson, Platform
