Garrick, Kemble, Siddons, Kean Great Shakespeareans: Volume II

Author: Peter Holland Format: Paperback Release Date: 25/09/2014

The four actors whose careers the essays in this volume explore are not only the greatest English actors of their own times but also performers whose brilliance is still invoked by all interested in theatre. Each took a distinct approach to the Shakespeare roles they played and the texts they used: from David Garrick's ability to move other actors as well as the audience to tears, to the noble classicism of John Philip Kemble, from the grand tragic style of Sarah Siddons to the terrifying energy of Edmund Kean. Each changed forever the concept of what Shakespeare's plays might mean in performance.

The Ornament of Action Text and Performance in Restoration Comedy

The Ornament of Action Text and Performance in Restoration Comedy

Author: Peter Holland Format: Paperback Release Date: 18/03/2010

How was Restoration comedies performed on the Restoration stage? How did Wycherley or Congreve expect their plays to be acted? How much were they influenced by theatrical conditions and conventions? What happened in performance, when the plays were graced with 'the ornament of action'? In this book, which was originally published in 1979, Peter Holland brings together the disciplines of theatre history and literary criticism in a close study of the manner and significance of the staging of plays in the Restoration. The dramatists, working with the strengths and weaknesses of their own theatre companies very much in mind, are shown using a whole range of staging techniques in order to help their audience understand their plays. The reader can visualise the plays as they must have looked at the time of the original performance. Throughout he challenges the conventional distinction between text and performance, and seeks to turn us from readers into spectators.

Shakespeare, Memory and Performance

Shakespeare, Memory and Performance

Author: Peter Holland Format: Hardback Release Date: 02/11/2006

'Remember thee? Ay, thou poor ghost, while memory holds a seat In this distracted globe.' Hamlet's lines pun on the globe as both his skull and the Globe Theatre. But what does memory have to do with Shakespeare and performances past and present? This collection of essays, first published in 2006, provides a meeting between the flourishing fields of memory studies and Shakespeare performance studies. The chapters explore a wide range of topics, from the means by which editors of Shakespeare plays try to help their readers remember performance to the ways actors sometimes forget Shakespeare's lines, from the evocative memories instilled in the archives of costumes to the photographing of props that act as memories of performances past. The fifteen contributors are leaders in the field of Shakespeare performance studies and their considerations of the possibilities of the subject open up a rich new vein in Shakespeare studies.

Shakespeare Survey is a yearbook of Shakespeare studies and production. Since 1948 Survey has published the best international scholarship in English and many of its essays have become classics of Shakespeare criticism. Each volume is devoted to a theme, or play, or group of plays; each also contains a section of reviews of that year's textual and critical studies, and of the year's major British performances. The books are illustrated with a variety of Shakespearean images and production photographs. The virtues of accessible scholarship and a keen interest in performance, from Shakespeare's time to our own, have characterised the journal from the start. Most volumes of Survey have long been out of print. Backnumbers are gradually being reissued in paperback.

Author: Peter Holland Format: Hardback Release Date: 29/10/2004

This collection brings together a group of distinguished and original theatre historians engaged in rethinking the nature of early modern theatre history as a discipline. Whether focusing on the relation between scripts and performance practice, the structure of theatrical companies, the social dimensions of drama, or the archaeology of the stage, all are concerned with basic questions of evidence and interpretation, and offer significant, and often startling, revisions of our view of the early modern theatre.

English Shakespeares Shakespeare on the English Stage in the 1990s

English Shakespeares Shakespeare on the English Stage in the 1990s

Author: Peter Holland Format: Paperback Release Date: 13/11/1997

Based on Peter Holland's wide experience as a reviewer of stage productions, the book explores the full extent of Shakespeare performances in England over the last decade. As a regular reviewer for Shakespeare Survey and the BBC, Holland has examined the variety, the strengths and the problems of English productions. His introduction points out general themes which are taken up in the detailed chronological account of productions by several English companies, including the Royal Shakespeare Company, the National Theatre, Cheek by Jowl, Northern Broadsides and the English Shakespeare Company. A final chapter compares the English experience with productions elsewhere. Peter Holland's reviews are individually thoughtful, provocative and illuminating; cumulatively they show that there is no one English Shakespeare style but a rich and often bewildering variety.
