Abstract(s)
Mark Ravenhill deals with the issue of popular culture, especially its aspect of consumerism that both Fiske and Ang discussed. Although Ravenhill, like Fiske, acknowledges the power of the people to resist the negative influence of the consumer society, he gives a special emphasis on the marginality of such a power (in accord with Ang's opinion), as will be demonstrated on the example of his plays Shopping and Fucking and Faust is Dead.
