:: Résumé    :: Sommaire    :: Détails

Spanning four centuries, An Introduction to Anglophone Theatre brings together key notions and texts to accompany students in their exploration of both theatre and Anglophone culture. The book considers this theatrical tradition from the perspectives of the text, the stage and the audience in order to bring out the total experience of theatre. This introductory study gives its readers a sense of the historical development of English-speaking theatre from its origins in religious rituals and urban entertainments to the multimedia productions of today. From Shakespeare to Tony Kushner, from Restoration comedy to today's theatre of identity, the book's chapters introduce readers to the themes and styles that have developed within this tradition. The authors have chosen key authors from the Anglophone literary scene whose works are presented along with a selected bibliography to help further research. Through in-depth studies, close-ups and a glossary of key terms, the book is a guide to plays of historical importance, to the cultural forces that have shaped theatre and to the changes the stage has undergone.
