9780521794169: Players of Shakespeare 4: Further Essays in Shakespearean Performance by Players with the Royal Shakespeare Company (Vol 4)

This is the fourth volume of essays by actors with the Royal Shakespeare Company. Twelve actors including Sir Derek Jacobi, Jane Lapotaire and Julian Glover describe the Shakespearian roles they played in productions between 1992 and 1997. The plays covered include The Merchant of Venice, Love's Labour's Lost, The Taming of the Shrew, The Winter's Tale, and Romeo and Juliet, among others. The essays divide equally among comedies, histories, and tragedies, with emphasis among the comedies on those notoriously difficult "clown" roles. A brief biographical note is provided for each of the contributors.

' ... excellent reading ... The fluency and wit with which all of these actors discuss the texts they perform puts us professional academics to shame. The book is thoroughly to be recommended.' The Times Literary Supplement
