Summary
"When a nation wants to reconnect with a sense of national identity, its cultural celebrations, including its theatre, are often tinged with nostalgia for a cultural high point in its history. Leaders often try to create a "neo-classical" cultural identity. This collection of essays discusses the relationship between political power and the construction or subversion of cultural identity"--Provided by publisher
