This unique collection of essays, accompanied by a pioneering DVD, at last brings a dazzling view of the literary, social, and performative aspects of American Sign Language to a wide audience. The book presents the work of a renowned and diverse group of deaf, hard-of-hearing, and hearing scholars who examine original ASL poetry, narrative, and drama. The DVD showcases the poems and narratives under discussion in their original form, providing access to them for hearing non-signers for the first time. Together, the book and DVD provide new insight into the history, culture, and creative achievements of the deaf community while expanding the scope of the visual and performing arts, literary criticism, and comparative literature.

That is the accomplishment analyzed and celebrated in these pages and in the accompanying DVD that clearly shows the work at hand.

I *love* ASL and my class. This book was required for class, and I enjoyed the first few chapters quite a bit. After that however, the book gets quite heady and technical. I am a literature nerd and so didn't mind too much but a lot of people in my class were truly thrown off when this book delved into an extremely technical grammatical lesson on the importance of the poetic line in ASL poetry. Snooze. Also, be extremely careful when buying this book, because you very much need the attached DVD for obvious reasons and there are many copies without it. The DVD is totally essential. Knowing that, I emailed my seller immediately after purchasing to ensure that it was enclosed (after a lot of time spent weeding out sellers who sold it solo). They told me that it was, so I was very much annoyed to receive my book (sent late so I had already started my class without it) and find the DVD broken and totally unusable. However, that was a problem with my seller, I guess. Maybe a tip to those who need it in a hurry for class: consider buying this new, maybe even from your school although it's more expensive (that's what I ended up doing) so that you don't run the risk of these problems.

Great book!

Needed it for school. Other than that I would not have purchased it. It is very difficult and tedious read.
Iaiastta
Great condition and has the DVD.
Shem
Did not receive the DVD that was suppose to come with the book, it was essential for my class.
Malara
The book was in terrible condition, tons of water damage and mold, and the DVD was cracked and unusable.
Frei
This is a required textbook for class.
One of the most boring books I've ever read. I had to have it for class. Some of the chapters were okay but I wouldn't recommend it for leisure reading.
