Author's pen and actor's voice : playing and writing in Shakespeare's theatre by Robert Weimann( )

18 editions published between 2000 and 2006 in English and held by 2,333 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this seminal work, Robert Weimann redefines the relationship between writing and performance, or 'playing', in Shakespeare's theatre. Through close reading and careful analysis Weimann offers a reconsideration and redefinition of Elizabethan performance and production practices. The study reviews the most recent methodologies of textual scholarship, the new history of the Elizabethan theatre, performance theory, and film and video interpretation, and offers a new approach to understanding Shakespeare. Weimann examines a range of plays including Hamlet, Troilus and Cressida, Henry V, A Midsummer Night's Dream and Macbeth, among others, as well as other contemporary works. A major part of the study explores the duality between playing and writing: the imaginary world-in-the-play and the visible, audible playing-in-the-world of the playhouse, and Weimann focuses especially on the gap between these two, between the so-called 'pen' and 'voice'

Prologues to Shakespeare's theatre : performance and liminality in early modern drama by Douglas Bruster( )

13 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 1,210 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Close readings of prologues by Shakespeare and his contemporaries, including Marlowe, Peele and Lyly, demonstrate the prologue's role in representing both the world in the play and playing in the world. Through their detailed examination of this remarkable form and its functions, the authors provide a fascinating perspective on early modern drama, a perspective that enriches our knowledge of the plays' socio-cultural context and their mode of theatrical address and action."--Jacket

Shakespeare and the power of performance : stage and page in the Elizabethan theatre by Robert Weimann( Book )

15 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and held by 512 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bridging the gap between today's page- and stage-centred interpretations, the authors demonstrate the artful means by which Shakespeare responded to the competing claims of acting and writing in the Elizabethan era. They examine how he explored issues of performance through the resonant trio of clown, fool and cross-dressed boy actor
