Rebecca Scherr

University Press of Mississippi

Rebecca Scherr draws on theories of performance and performativity to produce an account of both Sacco’s performances on the page as an artist--the drawing of a line and how that line functions as a trace of the artist’s presence--and his representations of himself as a “character” in his works.
