Staging Difference: Cultural Pluralism in American Theatre and Drama

By Marc Maufort | Go to book overview
The volume closes with two apendices, offering tools for further research. The first such appendix is Cooperman's interview with David Henry Hwang on the subject of cultural difference. The second is a bibliography of secondary sources that hopefully provides the basic works to be consulted by anyone interested in a study of diversity in American drama.In conclusion, the essays assembled here seek to present the myriad ways in which the conflict between the individual and society in America can be approached, in its literary and performance manifestations. Walt Whitman's poetic vision once made me discover the fundamental American ambivalence towards separation and unity. While Whitman sought to establish a balance between the individual and the group in Leaves of Grass, today's America likewise needs to discover new ways of implementing this balance, taking into account the new challenge of multiculturalism. It is to be hoped that the essays gathered here will offer a modest contribution towards this goal.
