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.

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.
