Check out Matt Steggle, 'Wars of the Theatres: the Poetics of
Personation in the Age of Jonson'; Victoria: University of Victoria
Press, 1988.

Comment:        Re: SHK 11.2221 Re: Hamlet's Books

Just a thought: when I directed the play as a student, but true for most
productions I imagine, the book Hamlet reads most of the time tends to
be the script. Even when he was off book, I dared him to use his Penguin
as 'the' book in performance...he chickened out and bought some second
hand Danish poetry to bamboozle the front row...these days, I might
insist.

There's also a good case for 'The Art of Coarse Acting', of course.

Happy Christmas all,
Carol
