Abstract:

"Based on a talk given by Peter Brook in Berlin, Evoking Shakespeare addresses a number of essential questions about performing Shakespeare today. 'Why is Shakespeare not out of date?' 'What do we mean by Shakespeare's "genius" or "creativity" or "poetry"?' 'What, in fact, is the Shakespeare phenomenon?'"

The result is a provocative take on our greatest playwright by one of his most influential modern interpreters."--Jacket.
