New Edition

210 x 140 mm. 256pp Illustrated... [In stock in Australia, for immediate delivery]

Shakespeare's plays in rehearsal lucidly and forcibly demonstrate just how much play is in his texts, how the language is awakened, coloured, emphasised, sensualised, extended in performance. A meaningful, meaty rehearsal could never be mistaken for a colloquium at the Modern Library Association. Shakespeare's intended readers were his collaborators, not his commentators. Here, a reader can at last behold the fuller meaning of the text as played. Brown invites his more sedentary colleagues to seek their insights in Shakespeare's natural habitat: the stage.
This revised edition offers four entirely new chapters, including 'The Nature of Speech in Shakespeare's Plays' and 'The Theatrical Element of Shakespeare Criticism'. This is also up-to-the-minute Shakespeare, as Brown goes beyond consideration of the classic Olivier, Gielgud and Redgrave productions to more recent American workouts at the Hartford Stage, Theatre for a New Audience, and the New York Shakespeare Festival.
