The Quality of Mercy: Reflections on Shakespeare (HB)

Product code: 17044

Unique insights on England's greatest dramatist from one of the world's most influential and admired theatre directors.

In this collection of essays and speeches, Peter Brook debates such questions as who was the man who wrote Shakespeare's plays, why Shakespeare is never out of date, how to approach Shakespeare's verse and why actors should forget Shakespeare when performing his plays.

He also revisits some of the plays which he has directed with notable brilliance, such as King Lear, Titus Andronicus and, of course, A Midsummer Night's Dream.

These nine articles most of them published here for the first time together offer an illuminating and provocative insight into a great director's relationship with our greatest playwright.
