Front Cover
Fairleigh Dickinson Univ Press, 1991 - 245 pages
This work attempts to bring together the divided commitments of academics and theater people. Its method is threefold: scrutinizing the text for signals that may guide production, identifying and analyzing those moments that represent textual and performance cruces, and looking at ways in which performance interprets text by focusing on King Lear.
