Halsall presents the first complete treatment in English of Hugo's plays." "This synthesis offers a history, plot summary, and detailed analysis of all the dramas, from Cromwell and Torquemada to the juvenilia and the epic melodrama Les Burgraves. Particular attention is given to Hugo's practical experiments in staging his own plays, which he nearly always directed himself in the 1830s. Also documented are the receptions accorded to Hugo's dramas, from the battle that greeted Hernani in 1830 to Richard Eyre's 1996 production of Le Roi s'amuse at London's Royal National Theatre, which pointed to the sexual high jinks among the royals of the period."--BOOK JACKET."
