Samuel Beckett's Self-Referential Drama, Paperback (January 2002)

Bible as Theatre, Paperback (January 2002)» View all books by Shimon Levy
A discussion of the Bible's resemblance to theatre, with the author arguing that the fear the ancient Hebrews felt for theatre was based on its highly creative potential as a rival Creator, not its gaudy aspects. God, in theatrical terms, is "The Great Offstage Being".
