Shakespeare Our Contemporary (Norton Library)

Shakespeare Our Contemporary (Norton Library) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Peter Brook and Charles Marowitz are among the many directors who have acknowledged their debt to Jan Kott, finding in his analogies between Shakespearean situations and those in modern life and drama the seeds of vital new stage-conceptions. Readers all over the world--Shakespeare Our Contemporary has been translated into nineteen languages since it appeared in 1961--have similarly found their responses to Shakespeare broadened and enriched. Mary McCarthy called the work "the best, the most alive, radical book about Shakespeare in at least a generation."

Synopsis:

This book is a provocative, original study of the major plays of Shakespeare; more than that, however, it is one of the few critical works to have strongly influenced theatrical productions.
