I Cannot live without a Macaroon!': Food, Hunger, and the Dangers of Modern American Culture in Edna St. Vincent Millay's Aria da Capo and Other Plays 'Damn Everything but the Circus!': The Ambiguous Place of Popular Culture in E.

"An intelligent, extremely well written study, Fahy's text expands our knowledge of the subject. He enables us to understand better the non-realistic (expressionist, maybe even post-modern) theater in America as well as to understand the writers themselves." - Townsend Ludington, author of John Dos Passos: A Twentieth-Century Odyssey and The Fourteenth Chronicle: Letters and Diaries of John Dos Passos"As Fahy points out, these plays and playwrights have been marginalized by readers and scholars alike. Nevertheless, Fahy proves how relevant these works are; all of these artists challenged contemporary perceptions of class, race, and sexuality. Fahy s insights are extremely perceptive, and he is not only influenced by famous critics, such as Bahktin, Cohn, Foucault, Pizer, and Nicoll, but also by major new authorities such as Bay-Cheng, Kasson, Ludington, and Wagner-Martin. A fine contribution to literary scholarship." - Kimball King, Professor Emeritus of English, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill
