Sample text

Alice herself could be anything from an earth mother symbol to a sex ad; her castles, both the real and the miniature, simply offer a space where the Everymen of our day can have their fun and games. "New senecanism" is one of the too-readily available critical approaches, 11 but when concentrating on the main antihero, Julian, the Lay Brother's dilemmas or polylemmas, I would hint at a readier parallel provided by T. S. Eliot in his Murder in the Cathedral. For me, relative innocence and firm readiness for martyrdom connect Julian and Thomas Becket.

George Wellwarth has extended the history of The Theatre of Protest and Paradox (1964) from Ibsen to Albee, just as Lionel Abel did with his Metatheatre (1963) from the Greek classics to Genet. Walter Kerr burst onto the Page 4 scene with Theatre in Spite of Itself (1963). One might endlessly enumerate thought-provoking and fancy titles of volumes of collected theater criticism, which, in spite of having momentarily hit the mark from this perspective, seem to have brought about an equally endless beating around the bush.

Horizons widen, as they say, until views of so different generations and nations can amalgamate. I owe special thanks to professors of the English and Theater departments at the University of Minnesota, especially to Dr. Kent Bales, my academic adviser. I have enjoyed an intellectually and emotionally stimulating friendship with Paul Walsh, who was a graduate student and teaching assistant at the University of Minnesota during my stay there. If we meet again for a longer period of time, we must write up our notes for our coauthored book, The Room-Sized Metaphysics of Twentieth-Century Drama.
