"Performing Shakespeare" demystifies the works of the most famous dramatist in the English language. All too often, the works of William Shakespeare are treated with a reverence and awe bordering on fear; this book aims to take that fear away, leaving the performer to enjoy the luxury of richness of the images, the poetry of the language, the humour and the drama, as well as providing the audience with a compelling and moving theatrical experience.
