ON THE USES OF THE FANTASTIC IN MODERN THEATRE: COCTEAU, OEDIPUS, AND THE MONSTER
has just been published by Palgrave Macmillan.
The book reveals how the fantastic is used in modern theatre as a manipulative device to encode the unspeakable and control audience response, challenging conventional readings of various authors who use the fantastic.
The book addresses such issues as identity, the Oedipus myth and Freud, homosexuality and homophobia, marginality, and the role of the artist in society.
