This new collection of essays on American stage and film melodrama assesses the multifarious and contradictory uses to which melodrama has been put in American culture from the late 18th century to the present. It focuses on the various ways in which the genre has periodically intervened in debates over race, class, gender and sexuality and, in this manner, has also persistently contributed to the formation and transformation of American nationhood: from the debates over who constitutes the newborn nation in the Early Republic, to the subsequent conflict over abolition and the discussion of gender roles at the turn of the 19th century, to the fervent class struggles of the 1930s and the critiques of domestic containment in the 1950s, as well as to ongoing debates of gender, race, and sexuality today. Addressing these issues from a variety of different angles, including historical, aesthetic, cultural, phenomenological, and psychological approaches, these essays present a complex picture of the cultural work and passionate politics accomplished by melodrama over the course of the past two centuries, particularly at times of profound social change.

A beautiful octoroon child-woman on the auction block, the dead outlaw she's in love with, a young Kipling sent to America on a secret mission by Queen Victoria, and a perfectly dead family living comfortably in a luxurious brothel that offers the Grand Canyon, Niagara Falls, a lighthouse on the Irish Sea, and a sunken Spanish galleon as simple nuances. Meet Tolstoy, Gauguin, and a Russian circus giant, members of the recently formed New James Gang, as they rob the Bank of New Orleans with a magical brush stroke. Then there's Lady Richter, expatriate madam, in love with the tall black piano player dead for years, but still playing in the main parlor. And Allen Pinkerton, renowned detective, transformed into a bird, thwarted again. Invigorating ski jaunts down the ice mountains of Pluto, torrid love sessions under Big Ben, and the supernatural electrical storm that disrupts the Octoroon Ball are just a few of the defining moments necessary for these people to come in touch with the bookmarks of their souls, and the strangely simple meaning of life itself.

This volume explores the current status quo of 'melodrama studies' with respect to theater, prose writing, film, and other genres and forms, spanning a historical range from the eighteenth century to the present time. It starts from the observation that what used to be regarded as a lower form of cultural expression in the first half of the twentieth century, came to be reevaluated markedly in the last decades. These days, melodrama tends to be invoked as a serious and central category to assess the modern cultural imagination and imaginary. Moreover, at a time in which generic classification is becoming increasingly problematical, because genres, be they literary or filmic, are identified less with stable norms, and are understood increasingly as processes, melodrama gains an especially prominent function in literary and cultural studies, since it is seen as cutting across the field of generic identification. The contributions to this volume investigate different manifestations of melodrama and emphasize the multifaceted and heterogeneous character of the melodramatic mode.
