Kimberly Stern sets a superbly annotated text between an extensive introduction and several appendices documenting the play’s literary, cultural, and visual sources, its reception, and its 4/5(1). Salome of the Tenements shocked many critics and writers when first published in , but its author was immediately hailed as a major new talent.
