Issues in Interpretation, v2 n1 Entire Issue 
In this periodical, six respondents from various colleges and universities provide brief commentaries on the subject of genre study in the field of oral interpretation. According to the pamphlet's editor, all of these critics affirm the importance of literary study and genre study to performance, intimate some dissatisfaction with the terminology employed in broad generic classification, and agree that interpretation is "beyond genre" in its complexity and vitality as a performance medium which has some aspects of criticism. Readers' responses to previous issues include opinions concerning the functional nature of the manuscript for the oral interpreter and the need to maintain the teaching of drama within the discipline of oral interpretation. A brief preview of the next issue's topic, the role of the audience in oral interpretation, is also provided. (KS)
