Praise for Marjorie Garber: "Garber's is the most exhilarating seminar room you'll ever enter." NEWSWEEK magazine, review of Shakespeare After All (a top five best nonfiction book of 2004) "[Garber's] gift for analytical gab has few rivals... [a] lucid synthesis of detail, documents, and historical fact." THE NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW, review of Symptoms of Culture "Erudite and stimulating... Garber is warmly clarifying and acerbically entertaining." BOOKLIST, review of The Use and Abuse of Literature "Masterfully bridging the gap between high culture and low, Garber's witty, accessible essays give us surprising angles on a host of topics." JONATHAN CULLER, Cornell University
