Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Kane, editor of David Mamet Review: A Casebook, has written an illuminating study of one of America's most recognizable voices (e.g., Glengarry Glen Ross, American Buffalo). In his writing for both the stage and film, Mamet inspires heated discussion of ethics, morals, and our cultural concerns with power, the individual, and personal choices involving public and private acts. Kane explores the impact of Mamet's personal experience upon his aesthetic vision, clarifying the substantive Jewish content and methodology. Examining his entire oeuvre, she finds that Judaic thought and values are central to his artistic vision. With an extensive bibliography; recommended for all academic libraries and theater collections. (Index not seen.)ASusan L. Peters, Emory Univ. Lib., Atlanta

Format: Hardcover
Kane has really tapped the pulse of Mamet's works, making this a must for anyone who has read or seen his plays/films. She manages to uncover much of the subtle influences and the not-so-subtle manifestations of ethical codes in our society that have informed Mamet's writing, and she does so in scholarly but accessible language. She also does not stray too far from the texts but supports her theories and arguments with a lot of direct citing, making sure that we don't get lost in a sea of theoretical lingo. A great aid to anyone hoping to get more out of this area of drama.
