Description - Women in Russian Theatre by Catherine Schuler
Women in Russian Theatre is the first ever documentation of Russian actresses to be published in English. It is a fascinating feminist intervention into the much-studied canon of Russian theatre history. With unprecendented access to newly-opened files in Russia, Catherine Schuler examines the impact Russian actresses had upon the modernist theatre of their period. Schuler brings valuable historical detail and contemporary critical theory, to case-studies of the following popular actresses and acress-entrepreneurs of the late Imperial Russian stage: * Mariia Savina * Glikeriia Fedotova * Anna Brenko * Vera Kommissarzhevskaia * Mariia Ermolova * Polina Strepetova * Lidia Iavorskaia.
