About this item

Celebrating the centennial anniversary of American author Susan Glaspell’s Trifles (1916) and “A Jury of Her Peers" (1917), Carpentier and Jouve depart from previous approaches and indicate new directions in Glaspell scholarship for the twentieth century. The author of 50 short stories, 14 plays, and nine novels, Glaspell’s works were recovered by feminist critics in the early 1970s, and have become iconic internationally. They represent women’s lives and experiences from the beginnings of suffrage well into the mid-twentieth century and continue to resonate today. This collection of international contributors links academic scholarship with theatre practitioner interviews and two original creative works: a libretto and a dramatic monologue. Thirteen chapters are divided into two parts: scholars’ voices; practitioners’ voices. Chapters are: forensic science and the aesthetics of affect in “A Jury of Her Peers”; seeing, looking, pointing; silent partners; Susan Glaspell’s radicalization of women’s crime fiction; powerful gazes; Susan Glaspell’s gendered detectives; Trifles and “A Jury of Her Peers” on film; producing Susan Glaspell’s plays; Trifles in production at the Orange Tree Theatre, 2008; sometimes I sing; from dramatic time to operative time; sometimes I sing; Trifles.
