Continuing a new era in speech analysisNov. 19 2006
- Published on Amazon.com
Neil Freeman has taken what all actors and theatre professionals do and put it together in one book (or three!). He's put the modern version of speeches & soliloquies and placed them side-by-side with the folio versions. He's also added insightful commentary on the changes and highlighted important aspects. Shakespeare was meant to be performed (not read) and you can't perform his plays without examing the folio for clues to character and inspirational guidelines. This book makes streamlines this process. Now if only someone would publish all of the plays like this!
