Description - Verbal Violence in Contemporary Drama by Jeanette R. Malkin

In this book, Jeanette Malkin considers a broad spectrum of postwar plays in which characters are created, coerced, and destroyed by language. The playwrights examined are diverse and include Handke, Pinter, Bond, Albee, Mamet and Shepard, as well as Vaclav Havel and two of his plays: The Garden Party and The Memorandum. These playwrights portray language's manipulation of our political, social, and interpersonal worlds. Writing in a variety of idioms and styles, the playwrights all reveal the link between language and power.
