Book Description

The first edition of Merchant of Venice developed by and for the RSC, with unique material including an introduction from Jonathan Bate and interviews with important actors and directors

From the Back Cover

From the Royal Shakespeare Company – a fresh new edition of Shakespeare's bittersweet comedy of courtship and ethnic tension

THIS EDITION INCLUDES:

* An introduction to The Merchant of Venice by award-winning scholar Jonathan Bate
* The play – with clear and authoritative explanatory notes on each page
* A helpful scene-by-scene analysis and key facts about the play
* An introduction to Shakespeare's career and the Elizabethan theatre
* A rich exploration of approaches to staging the play featuring photographs of key productions

The most enjoyable way to understand a Shakespeare play is to see it or participate in it. This unique edition presents a historical overview of The Merchant of Venice in performance, recommends film versions, takes a detailed look at specific productions and includes interviews with two leading directors and two actors – Darko Tresjnak, David Thacker<, Anthony Sher and Henry Goodman - so that we may get a sense of the extraordinary variety of interpretations that are possible, a variety that gives Shakespeare his unique capacity to be reinvented and made 'our contemporary' four centuries after his death.
