Reviews

"Marjorie Garber assembles witty, shrewd, and imaginative essays on interdisciplinary topics that range widely from Shakespeare to psychoanalysis, and the practice of higher education today." -Publishers Weekly "In this wonderful collection of what she modestly calls 'musings,' Marjorie Garber makes an irresistible case for the value of literary study and for herself as one of its great modern practitioners. The essays are brave in their commitments and brilliant in their execution. They are at once provocative and playful-and abidingly humane." -- -David Scott Kastan Yale University
