Subject: Acquisition and Appropriation
I apologise for this posting before I start. Some time ago Professor
Edward Pechter mentioned these concepts in association with his "survey"
of poststructuralist critical responses to Shakespeare's plays. I have
lost the evidence of that discussion and hope that either Professor
Pechter or others on the list interested in how theory can inform
productions, would be able to set me in the right direction. I am
interested in how Shakespeare's texts [contexts] have been acquired for
productions in the latter 20th C and then how appropriation of the texts
[contexts] appears in productions of specifically MND.
Again apologies for repeating what has already been discussed.
