9781854595430: Kenneth Tynan: Theatre Writings

Kenneth Tynan was the 20th century's most influential theatre critic. Famous above all for championing the Angry Young Men at the Royal Court and for heralding Brecht, Beckett and Pinter, his writing was itself a 'high-definition performance' - stylish, discerning and scintillatingly witty.

About the Author:

Kenneth Tynan was born in 1927 and educated at Magdalen College, Oxford, which he left to become drama critic of the Evening Standard in 1951. He moved to the Observer in 1954, where he wrote on theatre every week until he left in 1962 to join Laurence Olivier's new National Theatre as its Literary Manager - and later Consultant. He died in July 1980. He was also a theatre producer - of shows ranging from Oh! Calcutta to Soldiers. A selection of his Profiles is published by NHB. Also published since his death are his Diaries and Letters.Dominic Shellard has published seven books on British theatre, including Kenneth Tynan: A Life (2003),

Review:

'Tynan was unique in that he combined the soul of an artist with the descriptive skill of a journalist. His style, blending voluptuous ease with verbal precision, was also a constant instrument of pleasure' Michael Billington, Guardian'a sentence from him is worth a book from all the rest' Time Out
