"Disabled" Characters in Plays
Warner, Lionel
Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, v18 n4 p371-382 2011
In attempting to answer the question "How is disability represented in plays?" two approaches are considered, one semiotic and literary and the other concerned with notions of stereotyping drawn from disability studies. The five plays on which the discussion is based are school examination set texts, raising questions about classroom discourse and interpretation. Pilot study data drawn from students' work in examinations are offered to suggest possible answers to those questions.
