Giorgio Strehler by David Hirst

Book Description

For at least the last half-century, Strehler has been an influential and integral part of European theatrical life; today he is most closely associated with the Teatro Piccolo in Milan, Italy's foremost repertory theatre. Outside Italy, Strehler is best known through his directorship of the Paris-based Theatre de l'Europe, his opera productions, and the plays in the Piccolo repertoire which have toured widely. In this detailed study, David Hirst evaluates the particular qualities which typify Strehler's work: the lyrical realism which has become the hallmark of his mature style, the fusion of naturalism, epic theatre, commedia dell'arte and lyric opera, and the gift of interpretation and production. Hirst traces this unique style through Strehler's development from the foundation of the Piccolo to the present day and analyses his productions of Goldoni, Shakespeare, Brecht and Verdi among others.

Beware of Small States by David Hirst Beware of Small States, Paperback (June 2011)

'Beware of Small States' wrote Mikhail Bukanin in 1870. He could have meant Lebanon: a sectarian state no bigger than Wales that has become battleground for one of the defining conflicts of twentieth-century history. This title gives a history of the country and its conflicts, culminating with the war in Gaza and its fallout in Lebanon.

Gun and the Olive Branch by David Hirst Gun and the Olive Branch, Paperback (August 2003)

Narrates the history of the conflict between Jews and Arabs in Palestine since the 1880s, from the arrival of the first Zionist pioneers. This updated edition of Hirst's classic work explains why the history of Palestine is still relevant to what is happening in the region now.
