Auctor Ludens: Essays on Play in Literatureby Gerald Guinness, Andrew Hurley, Roger Shattuck, Martin Esslin, Katharina Wilson
Pub. Date: 04/01/1986
Publisher: John Benjamins Publishing Company
This is a book about play practice rather than play theory. Of course, practice presupposes theory, but here the editors choose to keep general theoretical assumptions under cover rather then force them into explicitness. The contributors to this volume were given free rein to discuss whatsoever aspect of literary play caught their fancy. The absence of a predetermined theoretical framework has resulted in an idiosyntractic volume on the different forms of play.
