- We can order this
Bringing together archival discoveries, sound recording history, and media theory, Pascoe shows how romantic poets' preoccupation with voices is linked to a larger cultural anxiety about the voice's ephemerality. The Sarah Siddons Audio Files contributes to a growing body of work on the fascinating history of sound and will engage a broad audience interested in how recording technology has altered human experience.

."..a truly inredisciplinary study that is about much more than recovering Siddons's lost voice. In her multifaceted investigations, Pascoe asks us to consider what it means to think about historical evidence in the absence of tangible documentation, an issue that theater historians have been tackling for many years, but ehich have just recently become a central interest of literary scholars."

"Richly informed by archival research and theories of new media supplemented by first-hand experimentation, and written in a lively, first-person voice, "The Sarah Siddons Audio Files" is a vibrant and sure-to-be-influential work of scholarship."
