In Method Acting and Its Discontents, Shonni Enelow provocatively argues that Method acting's positing of a fundamentally porous self was a source of deep anxiety in a culture focused on containment, an anxiety that left lasting traces on American drama and performance. In case studies of plays by Tennessee Williams and James Baldwin and a film by William Greaves, Enelow places Method acting alongside developments in psychology and psychoanalysis, philosophy, and the politics of American identity during the civil rights movement, demonstrating that the subversive possibilities of the Method are inseparable from its failures. Enelow's book, the first of its kind, is an exciting affirmation of how performance studies can yield insights into the larger culture.
