Inhaltsangabe: At Last! A practical handbook for Shakespearean Performance. The bard wrote the world's greatest verse plays. Almost all of them are performed or read as prose-by default, not by decision. This is a tragic waste but it is fixable. THIS BOOK HAS TWO GOALS: - to persuade you that the great rewards of verse speaking and reading are worth much more than the modest effort required to master them - to provide the information and guidance needed to lead you down this path Use this book and experience the music of Shakespeare as never before. Believe it! Praise for Shakespeare's Verse: The book is terrific. Shakespeare's Verse: A User's Manual is an essential text for the actor and director; a comprehensive and persuasive method for tackling the challenge of speaking Shakespeare. Roger Gross' lifelong love of Shakespeare is evident on every page as is his musician's ear. The result is an easy-to-understand, lively and most important, practical guide. ~ Michele Gallery, two-time Emmy Award winner. ***** Roger Gross brings his long history of directing Shakespeare both professionally and academically, as well as his years of scholarship, to his very readable, very practical guide to speaking Shakespeare's verse. It's a treasure trove of information and advice for lovers of Shakespeare at every level. ~ Dakin Matthews, Actor, Scholar and Producer. ***** This book is a wonder! Written in such a straightforward-almost conversational-style that no reader can possibly be inhibited by the material. It is delightfully short yet manages to be absolutely comprehensive. ~ Dr. Robert Barton, author of the popular book Acting: Onstage and Off and seven others.
What a great book! If only we had that under our belt back in the days of blood and guts. I enjoyed reading it and I loved learning from it as well.
This is an excellent book for learning how to understand, love and use Shakespeare's verse. A book that everyone can benefit from. But for me, Roger Gross' book, Shakespeare's Verse . . . is an acting book! It aids actors in finding their character through the use of verse. To find out how Shakespeare intended us to read his lines helps in the development of the character. Rhythm, emphasis as well as meaning, tell us much about the intelligence, class, intentions, age and abilities of a given character. All this Gross shows us how to mine from the text though the verse. He teaches us not only how to find the beauty of Shakespeare's verse but he gives us a valuable tool to help us find the essence of his characters.
~ Kurtwood Smith, award-winning television and film actor
