T1 The theatres of Molière A1 McCarthy, Gerry., PB Routledge PP London; New York YR 2002 SN 0415033497 9780415033497 0415259479 9780415259477 AB "In this volume, Gerry McCarthy examines the practice and method of possible the greatest actor-dramatist in the Western tradition. From the rough farces of Moliere's days on the road to the creation of the diverse and spectacular court entertainments on his return to Paris, McCarthy sheds new light on the dramatic intelligence and theatrical understanding of Moliere's writing for the actor." "Drawing on Moliere's own brief discussions of performance and the contemporary evidence of his practice, this is a crucial addition to the debate on style and method in classical acting and on the staging of classical plays on the contemporary stage."--Jacket.
