Stages of Desire: The Mythological Tradition in Classical and Contemporary Spanish Theaterby Michael Kidd
Within the rich tradition of Spanish theater lies an unexplored dimension reflecting themes from classical mythology. Through close readings of selected plays from early modern and twentieth-century Spanish literature with plots or characters derived from the Greco-Roman tradition, Michael Kidd shows that the concept of desire plays a pivotal role in adapting myth to the stage in each of several historical periods.

“Kidd’s readings of individual plays are always creative and engaging.”
