Shakespeare and the Making of Theatreby Stuart (edt) Hampton-reeves
Synopses & Reviews
A highly engaging text that approaches Shakespeare as a maker of theatre, as well as a writer of literature. Leading performance critics dismantle Shakespeare's texts, identifying theatrical cues in ways which develop understanding of the underlying theatricality of Shakespeare's plays and stimulate further performances.
