In December of 2012, we announced the coming of this hallmark book, and in August of 2012 (a year ago today!) the first volume arrived. Since then we have been working hard on the second and are very happy to have it in our hands today – because it means that you can have it in your hands soon too!
In the expanded fifth edition of Modern Canadian Plays, Jerry Wasserman showcases an even broader range of Canadian drama than in previous editions. Plays in Volume Two range from the emerging theatricality of Robert Lepage and Ex Machina’s Polygraph, first produced in 1988, to the complexity of urban race relations in Kim’s Convenience by Ins Choi, first produced in 2011. New or updated introductions and playscripts in the newest edition include:

On Meta-Talon today, please enjoy the full text of the presentation given by Carl Peters at the Modern Languages Association convention in New York City on January 7, 2018. This talk responds to the question posed in the MLA convention session Rhetoric in Post-Factual Times: how to perform textual analysis in a time when facts are no longer the marker of good argumentation. (Peters’s talk is also related to his work on Stein; Peters is recently the author of Studies in Description: Reading Gertrude Stein’s Tender Buttons.)
