American Drama by Susan Harris Smith
Book DescriptionIn this book, Susan Harris Smith looks at the many often conflicting cultural and academic reasons for the neglect and dismissal of American drama as a legitimate literary form. Covering a wide range of topics such as theatrical performance, the rise of nationalist feeling, the creation of academic disciplines, and the development of sociology, Smith's study is a contentious and revisionist historical inquiry into the troubled cultural and canonical status of American drama, both as a literary genre and as a mirror of American society.

Plays in American Periodicals, 1890-1918, Paperback (July 2012)» View all books by Susan Harris Smith
Between 1890 and 1918, over 125 plays by 70 dramatists were published in 14 American general interest periodicals aimed at the middle-class reader and consumer. This book analyzes the issues dramatized in those plays which reveal Americans to have been 'dis/contented' citizens, conflicted by the demands of a dynamically changing nation.
