Description - Respect for Acting by Uta Hagen
Respect for Acting
"This fascinating and detailed book about acting is Miss Hagen's
credo, the accumulated wisdom of her years spent in intimate
communion with her art. It is at once the voicing of her exacting
standards for herself and those she [taught], and an explanation of
the means to the end."
"Hagen adds to the large corpus of titles on acting with vivid
dicta drawn from experience, skill, and a sense of personal and
professional worth. Her principal asset in this treatment is her
truly significant imagination. Her 'object exercises' display a
wealth of detail with which to stimulate the student preparing a
scene for presentation."
"Uta Hagen's Respect for Acting . . . is a relatively small book.
But within it, Miss Hagen tells the young actor about as much as
can be conveyed in print of his craft."
--Los Angeles Times
"There are almost no American actors uninfluenced by Uta Hagen."
"This is a textbook for aspiring actors, but working thespians can
profit much by it. Anyone with just a casual interest in the
theater should also enjoy its behind-the-scenes flavor."
--King Features Syndicate
