Weyward Macbeth: Intersections of Race and Performance (Signs of Race)
Palgrave Macmillan, January 2010. Hardcover. Used - Very Good / No Jacket. Item #293480
Weyward Macbeth, a volume of entirely new essays, provides innovative, interdisciplinary approaches to the various ways Shakespeare's 'Macbeth' has been adapted and appropriated within the context of American racial constructions. Comprehensive in its scope, this collection addresses the enduringly fraught history of 'Macbeth' in the United States, from its appearance as the first Shakespearean play documented in the American colonies to a proposed Hollywood film version with a black diasporic cast. Over two dozen contributions explore 'Macbeth's' haunting presence in American drama, poetry, film, music, history, politics, acting, and directing -- all through the intersections of race and performance.
Tight binding; Clean, sturdy boards; Text free of markings; An excellent copy, w/o jacket.
