BAAL is a work at once brutal, coarse, and tender that pictures an "amoral" life ruthless in its consistency. A MAN'S A MAN probes individuality and social roles, transecnding locality and topicality. THE ELEPHANT CALF is a slightly different interpretation of "A man's a man" in one act
The field of drama : how the signs of drama create meaning on stage and screen by Martin Esslin ( Book )
14 editions published between 1987 and 1994 in English and held by 742 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Diverse aspecten van de tekenleer met betrekking tot drama worden in dit boek behandeld. Dit wordt onder andere bekeken voor de acteur, het decor, de tekst en de muziek. Vervolgens introduceert de auteur een eigen tekensysteem, dat afwijkt van het gebruikelijke onderscheid tussen tekens, symbolen en iconen. Achterliggende gedachte is dat het goed begrijpen van de bij drama gebruikte tekensystemen bijdraagt aan een grote waardering voor drama. Zowel drama op toneel als op film komt aan de orde
