Books Info:

Suzan-Lori Parks on Stage and Screen free pdf Suzan-Lori Parks is one of the world's most popular dramatists. The recipient of a MacArthur "genius" grant, she is the first African-American woman to win the Pulitzer Prize for drama. For students, scholars and practitioners, Suzan-Lori Parks on Stage and Screen provides an authoritative and enquiring approach to Parks' diverse body of work that moves beyond a rehearsal of her key dramaturgical tropes, techniques and themes to offer a comprehensive critical exploration of one of the most daring and dynamic artists of our time. This accessible and innovative analysis of her career to-date will appeal to students, fans, and producers of her stage plays, films, novels, musicals and other works. Warner's original study expands the analytic aperture of Parks studies by offering the first thematic study of her oeuvre organized around a set of independent rubrics and original critical terms that emerge from close readings of scripts and productions. Drawing upon affect theory, theatre historiography, performance studies and film theory, in addition to other contemporary discourses, it presents new paradigms for contemplating and assessing Parks' contributions to theatre, fiction, cinema, and music.
