The English Stage: A History of Drama and Performance tells the story of the drama through its many changes in style and convention from medieval times to the present day. With a wide sweep of coverage, John Styan analyses the key features of staging, including early street theatre and public performance, the evolution of the playhouse and the private space and the pairing of theory and stagecraft in the works of modern dramatists. He focuses on the conventions by which a playwright, his actors and their audience create the phenomenon of theatre and the way such conventions have changed over time. Styan is among a small number of influential scholars who have developed performance criticism and theatre history from their origins in literary studies into an independent and respected field. From the vantage point of a lifetime's study he examines and illustrates the multitude of factors which have brought and continue to bring plays to life

Drama : a guide to the study of plays by J. L Styan( Book )
12 editions published between 2000 and 2004 in English and held by 257 libraries worldwide
"This book introduces the elements of drama and the principles behind the reading and study of plays - classical and modern. It makes a special point of seeing drama as intended for acting and performance, and it therefore emphasizes the role of the spectator at a play and the sort of theatre for which drama was written. The performance approach to the study of plays finally clarifies the different kinds of drama (comedy, tragedy, melodrama, and farce) and identifies its forms (realism, stylization, and symbolism). The book draws on specific examples of drama, is rich in helpful charts and diagrams, and contains a comprehensive glossary. Drama will be a useful guide for students and general playgoers alike."--BOOK JACKET
