"Karagiozis--a form of comic folk drama employing stock puppet figures--was immensely popular in Greece until recent years, when newer forms of entertainment have virtually eclipsed it. Kostas and Linda Myrsiades present here a tripartite view of Karagiozis; a translation of a typical text taken directly from a live performance; interviews with one of the last master Karagiozis puppeteers; and an analysis of the place of this indigenous genre in Greek culture and life.
Kostas Myrsiades is professor of comparative literature at at West Chester University.Linda S. Myrsiades is assistant professor of English at West Chester University.
