About the Author

Maggie Vinter is Assistant Professor of English at Case Western Reserve University.


Last Acts offers a dazzling account of Renaissance theatrical performances of death. Bookended by an engaging introduction and an eloquent coda that ranges in time from John Donne to David Bowie, this erudite book provides a theoretically sophisticated analysis of the theater's constitutive role in shaping political and economic discourse. -- Patricia Cahill, Emory University
Challenging the perception of death as a moment of passivity, Last Acts analyzes death as an opportunity for expressions of personal, political, and spiritual, and economic agency. This outstanding, original work is topical and timely in its appeal. -- Will Stockton, Clemson University
