Identifying Mavor Moore

A Historical and Literary Study

by Allan Boss

tagged: history & criticism, canadian, artists, architects, photographers
Description

The enigmatic, obscured figure behind many of the most important moments in building Canada's theatrical and cultural landscape has largely been ignored by history. In this groundbreaking study of his work, Allan Boss re-locates Moore in Canada's cultural history. Moore may be a jack of all trades, but Boss exposes a historical record that seems to conceal Moore's work, challenging the conventions of recorded theatre history in Canada. Painting a picture of Moore's identity and legacy through his theatrical and artistic work and through an assortment of his literary contributions to the theatre, Boss creates an astounding account of a cultural giant who's been lost to history.
