Shakespeare and the Theatrical Event

Shakespeare and the Theatrical Event Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In his latest book, John Russell Brown sets out the grounds for a new and revealing way of studying Shakespeare's plays. By considering the entire theatrical event and not only what happens on stage, he takes his readers back to the major texts with a fuller understanding of their language and an enhanced view of a play's theatrical potential. Chapters on theatre-going, playscripts, acting, parts to perform, interplay, stage space, off-stage space, and the use of time all bring recent developments in Theatre Studies together with Shakespeare Studies.

About the Author

John Russell Brown is Professor of Theatre at Middlesex University.
