Bohemians and Critics 1981 Tice L. Miller
Bohemians and Critics American Theatre Criticism in the Nineteenth Century, 1981 by Tice L. Miller assesses the accomplishments of five critics: Henry Clapp, Jr., Edward G. P. Wilkins, William Winter, Stephen Ryder Fiske and Andrew C. Wheeler.
Along with numerous American playwrights, actors and theater managers, history has frequently neglected the theater critics in 19th century America. Tice Miller has provided here an extremely well researched evaluation of that fascinating journalistic social history of America.
One can learn a great deal about a people by understanding the entertainments they enjoyed. And theater critics explored and exploited American entertainments!
An excellent resource for theater lovers.
