Staging the Frontier

Matthew Rebhorn

  • Explores under-studied American plays from the 19th-century, drawing on broadsides, cartoons, and theatrical clippings, and in addition to the text of the plays
  • Combines literary studies and history to present a fresh view of the frontier at the time the American West was being settled
  • Includes a coda that discusses the idea of the frontier in twenty-first-century America, with a discussion of Ang Lee's Brokeback Mountain
