Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Meagher (English, theology, St. Michael's College, U. of Toronto) argues that we have misunderstood Shakespeare because we have only been exposed to his work according to norms of critics, directors, and editors of later times. He examines seven well-known plays to uncover Shakespeare as an artist, director, and actor, analyzing his stagecraft, his writing techniques, and the ways he put plays together. He reconstructs principles by which Shakespeare's plays were written and performed to promote a rereading of the plays that incorporates the assumptions and practices of stagecraft in Shakespeare's day. No index.
