PERFORMING LITERARY TEXTS is an exciting new text for the oral interpretation course that provides students with the skills and strategies required to effectively perform cultural and literary texts. This text takes a performance-oriented approach that balances theory and practice, uses contemporary and classic texts, and integrates Western and non-Western traditions. Throughout the book, students will find unique attention to diversity and culture as it relates to performance, storytelling, and analysis. With a unique section that teaches students to cope with their performance anxiety, PERFORMING LITERARY TEXTS provides students with everything they need to effectively perform and analyze literary texts for diverse audiences.
