Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This a superb reference book on some of the best and most influential directors around. Each chapter is written by a different author with a specialist knowledge of the director they are reviewing so they are knowledgable and passionate about their chosen subject. Whether you are an academic or an enthusiastic amateur you'll find something here to interest you. Highly recommended.

Welcome My Friends to the Show that Never Ends 23 April 2013
By 'Rick - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book aims at a limited readership, but for those readers, it is well-nigh indispensable. It surveys thirty-one important directors whose careers have included significant work with the plays of William Shakespeare. Ranging over more than a century, and a number of different countries and cultures, the Routledge Companion offers up a remarkable variety of styles and approaches.

Each article is written by a different individual, usually a scholar, with specific expertise in the work of the director under discussion. This avoids both tedium and the bias inevitable in a book by a single expert, however fair-minded.

There will be something here to please, to stimulate, to amuse - and perhaps, even, to horrify - any prospective director of Shakespeare. But, in the end, the Routledge Companion, in its breadth of coverage, offers tacit permission for each of us to find our own way to the heart of Mr. Shakespeare's works, and to translate what we find for the audience we seek.

Useful Resource 18 Aug. 2009
By T C - Published on
Format: Hardcover
A solid work and useful resource. 31 directors (including Orson Welles, Julie Taymor, and others) are surveyed in detailed accounts: career, approaches to Shakespeare and theatre, key ideas.
