Fandom, Authenticity, and Opera
Mad Acts and Letter Scenes in Fin-de-siècle RussiaBook - 2013
"A uniquely intense approach to public life and private expression - the 'melodramatic imagination' - is at the center of this study ... Collective fantasies and affects are daunting objects of study, difficult to render, and almost impossible to prove empirically ... By analyzing the artifacts and practices of a commercialized opera culture, author Anna Fishzon provides a solution to these challenges. Her focus on celebrity and fandom as features of the melodramatic imagination helps illuminate Russian modernity"--Cover, p. .
