The Baroque Night

Spencer Golub
About the Author

Spencer Golub, a professor of theater arts and performance studies, Slavic languages, and comparative literature at Brown University, is the author of Incapacity: Wittgenstein, Anxiety, and Performance Behavior (NUP, 2014), Infinity (Stage) (1999), The Recurrence of Fate: Theatre and Memory in Twentieth-Century Russia (1994), and Evreinov: The Theatre of Paradox and Transformation(1984).

“The Baroque Night is a fascinating and erudite work on the question of unreality. It is a great example of how work grounded in performance studies continues to be a wellspring of original thought for interdisciplinary work on aesthetics, identity and dynamic form.” –Alanna Thain, author of Bodies In Time: Suspense, Affect and Cinema
