Synopsis: Winner of the 2016 George Jean Nathan Award

Method Acting and Its Discontents: On American Psycho-Drama
provides a new understanding of a crucial chapter in American theater history. Enelow’s consideration of the broader cultural climate of the late 1950s and early 1960s, specifically the debates within psychology and psychoanalysis, the period’s racial and sexual politics, and the rise of mass media, gives us a nuanced, complex picture of Lee Strasberg and the Actors Studio and contemporaneous works of drama. Combining cultural analysis, dramaturgical criticism, and performance theory, Enelow shows how Method acting’s contradictions reveal powerful tensions inside mid-century notions of individual and collective identity.

Book Description Northwestern University Press, United States, 2015. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. In Method Acting and Its Discontents, Shonni Enelow provocatively argues that Method acting s positing of a fundamentally porous self was a source of deep anxiety in a culture focused on containment, an anxiety that left lasting traces on American drama and performance. In case studies of plays by Tennessee Williams and James Baldwin and a film by William Greaves, Enelow places Method acting alongside developments in psychology and psychoanalysis, philosophy, and the politics of American identity during the civil rights movement, demonstrating that the subversive possibilities of the Method are inseparable from its failures. Enelow s book, the first of its kind, is an exciting affirmation of how performance studies can yield insights into the larger culture. Seller Inventory # AAC9780810131835
