Vested Interests by Marjorie Garber

Book Description

Beginning with the bold claim, "There can be no culture without the transvestite," Marjorie Garber explores the nature and significance of cross-dressing and of the West's recurring fascination with it. Rich in anecdote and insight, Vested Interests offers a provocative and entertaining view of our ongoing obsession with dressing up--and with the power of clothes.

Shakespeare's Ghost Writers by Marjorie Garber Shakespeare's Ghost Writers, Paperback (March 2010)

Presents an examination of the authorship controversy surrounding Shakespeare: the claim made repeatedly that the plays were ghost written. This title asks what is at stake in the imputation that 'Shakespeare' did not write the plays, and shows that the plays themselves both thematize and theorize that controversy.

Patronizing the Arts by Marjorie Garber Patronizing the Arts, Hardback (July 2008)

What is the role of the arts in American culture? Is art an essential element? If so, how should we support it? This book describes the history of patronage, and shows how patronage has elevated and damaged the arts in modern culture, and argues for the university as a serious patron of the arts.

Profiling Shakespeare by Marjorie Garber Profiling Shakespeare, Hardback (May 2008)

Contains essays, which show the outline of a Shakespeare, the effects, the ephemera, the clues and cues, welcome and unwelcome, out of which Shakespeare's admirers and dedicated scholars have pieced together a vision of the playwright, whether as sage, psychologist, lover, theatrical entrepreneur, or moral authority.
