"The book's project is a worthy one; play as a source for the creative imagination has too long been secondary. One hopes that this slender volume of well-researched essays succeeds in its task." --A. J. Wharton, Choice "Getsy's anthology is a strong piece of work, with older theories of play marshaled not to justify the fun house that the art world has become in our day, but to remind us of how deeply modernists have engaged with a range of ludic possibilities." --Jed Perl, The New Republic "Far too often the seriousness of high art has been invoked at the expense of compelling art's sheer gratuitousness, irrepressible impertinence, and spontaneous playfulness. A welcome and particularly bracing overturning of this staid approach is David J. Getsy's From Diversion to Subversion, a collection of lucid essays by established and emerging scholars, which focuses insightfully on the oxymoronic turns of serious humor, games played in earnest, and ludic research." --Robert Hobbs, Virginia Commonwealth University
