In the eighteenth century, Siddons was celebrated for playing Shakespeare's tragic women in a heroic, even "sublime" style. Terry, who reigned over the late-nineteenth-century stage, had a softer, "beautiful" style and is remembered best for her roles in Shakespeare's comedies. Dench, who still performs, has amassed a more varied resume than either of her predecessors. Not only has Dench had the advantages of variety offered by film and television roles, says Russ McDonald, but she may also command a greater artistic range." "McDonald also discerns parallels and distinctions in the approaches of Siddons, Terry, and Dench to the vocation of acting - specifically to Lady Macbeth and other great Shakespearean roles. Look to the Lady also helps us to better understand the place and function of the theater in British national life and what constitutes "great acting" at various historical moments." "Throughout, McDonald blends learned commentary on the history and culture of the stage with entertaining details about the appearance, personality, genealogy, and private life of each actor. Including some rarely seen images and drawing on previously untapped reviews and anecdotes, this is a lively introduction to the burgeoning field of performance criticism."--Jacket+-+11507857351332ocn021406085book19900.66Shaffer, PeterWhom do I have the honour of addressing? : first presented on BBC radio on November 20 1989 by Dame Judi Dench : a play1191ocn056653133book20040.16Darling Judi : a celebration of Judi Dench at 70+-+56429324751092ocn012097990book19850.26Jacobs, GeraldJudi Dench : a great deal of laughter : an authorized biographyBiography842ocn156561033book20050.15Dench, JudiScenes from my lifeBiography+-+K279932475615ocn156760222rcrd20040.10Miller, JohnDarling Judi a celebration of Judi DenchBiographyTo mark the seventieth birthday of one of Britain's best loved actors, Judi Dench, her biographer John Miller has invited fellow actors, writers, and others to illustrate her genius and her character from their own experience and perspective.
