Hell of a Vision book.

Hell of a Vision book. Focusing on the American West from the 1890s up to the present, Dorman provides us with a wide-ranging view of the impact of regionalist ideas in pop culture and diverse fields such as geography, land-use planning, anthropology, journalism, and environmental policy-making. Going well beyond the realm of literature, Dorman broadens the discussion by examining a unique mix of texts. He looks at major novelists such as Cather, Steinbeck, and Stegner, as well as leading Native American writers.

The University of Arizona Press, Tucson, 2012. Maps, notes, bibliography, index. The word regionalism has had many meanings, and in Hell of a Vision Robert L. Dorman explores the term as it has been applied to the American West since the late nineteenth century. Dorman's West is "the seventeen coterminous states" straddling, and west of, the hundredth meridian; hence, he includes the six Great Plains states but not Alaska and Hawaii (p. xii).

What are the tensions between the American Method-based system, from which Meisner's techniques emerged, and the traditions on which British training regimes are (or have been) based and how are these resolved? Finally, the discussion attempts to gauge the extent to which the increasing fascination with Meisner's work signals a shift in our understanding of the role of the professional actor in modern theatre and screen performance.

The American West has taken on a rich and evocative array of regional identities since the late nineteenth century. Wilderness wonderland, Hispanic borderland, homesteader’s frontier, cattle kingdom, urban dynamo, Native American homeland. Hell of a Vision explores the evolution of these diverse identities during the twentieth century, revealing how Western regionalism has been defined by generations of people seeking to understand the West’s vast landscapes and varied cultures.Focusing on the American West from the 1890s up to the present, Dorman provides us with a wide-ranging view of the impact of regionalist ideas in pop culture and diverse fields such as geography, land-use planning, anthropology, journalism, and environmental policy-making.Going well beyond the realm of literature, Dorman broadens the discussion by examining a unique mix of texts. He looks at major novelists such as Cather, Steinbeck, and Stegner, as well as leading Native American writers. But he also analyzes a variety of nonliterary sources in his book, such as government reports, planning documents, and environmental impact studies.Hell of a Vision is a compelling journey through the modern history of the American West—a key region in the nation of regions known as the United States.
