Shakespeare's Serial History Plays

Cover
Cambridge University Press, 03.01.2002 - 278 Seiten
Shakespeare's Serial History Plays provides a re-reading of the two sequences of English history plays, Henry VI-Richard III and Richard II-Henry V. Reconsidering the chronicle sources and the staging practices of Shakespeare's time, Grene argues that the history plays were originally designed for serial performance. The book looks both at their original creation in the 1590s and at modern serial productions or adaptations, from famous stagings such as the Royal Shakespeare Company's 1960s Wars of the Roses through to the present day.
