Editorial Reviews

Booknews
The reason that so much of what is written about Shakespeare now is badly written rubbish, says professional playwright and director Dulack, is that most of it shares a remarkable lack of common sense, and an almost complete ignorance of and concern with how the plays function in performance. He argues that they are nothing more or less than blueprints for stage productions. He recounts his personal experience with them. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
