Ingmar Bergman: A Life in the Theater (Directors in Perspective)by Lise-lone Marker
Synopses & Reviews
This book is a revised and expanded edition of Ingmar Bergman: Four Decades in the Theatre, published in 1982. The developments that have occurred in the interim, clustered around Bergman's triumphant return to the Royal Dramatic Theatre in Stockholm after years of self-imposed exile, have profoundly altered the course of this extraordinary career. Still the only book of its kind in English, this amply illustrated study uses detailed and comprehensive analyses of a range of Bergman's productions to chart the full scope of his achievement in the theater, from the early Macbeth in 1944 to his widely acclaimed production of Ibsen's Peer Gynt in 1991.
