Rehearsal from Shakespeare to Sheridan

Tiffany Stern

  • Offers an exciting cross-fertilization of methods, techniques, and sensibilities: archival history, close attention to language and technique, performance, the metaphysics of drama
  • Plotted through set-piece chapters on carefully chosen individual plays (Merchant, Lear, Tempest) and by set-piece analyses of particular "parts" (including Richard II and III, Shylock, six romantic heroines, Macbeth).
  • Written in very clear language in a fluently readable style, with no jargon
