This lively and engaging study offers fresh readings of some of Shakespeare's most canonical plays, illuminating the ways stagecraft and language of movement create meaning for us as playgoers. Including discussions of other plays, the book carefully explores A Midsummer Night's Dream, Richard II, Hamlet, Macbeth, and The Tempest to develop a better understanding of how implicit stagecraft elements work in concert with explicit rhetorical patterns in the plays. The discussions engage with materials from Shakespeare's time, present revelatory close readings of Shakespeare's language, and demonstrate how these continually popular texts engage all of us in making meaning.Darlene Farabee. popular ... to the means of exiting: aAny way, for heaven sake, / So I were out of your whisperinga (4.2.214a15).
