Fayard (French, U. of Leicester, UK) considers performances of Shakespeare in France following World War II, during the 1960s to the 1990s, their appeal, political and textual appropriations, and changes in interpretation. She addresses the work and style of directors Georges Lavaudant, Daniel Mesguich, and Stéphane Braunschweig, who broke from their predecessors' traditions. She examines how the plays were performed, particular productions, and provides a statistical analysis of trends in productions from charts included at the end of the book, which list separate performances from 1959 to 1968 and subsequent productions through the 1990s.

Review:

"This is a comprehensive and timely study of every major aspect of the 'Shakespeare phenomenon' as it evolved over the last half-century of theatre history in France... it is a compelling and coherent study of all facets of contemporary French theatre performance practice... an impressive and welcome addition to Shakespeare Studies, relevant on both sides of the Channel!" - Professor Robert V. Kenny, University of Leicester"
