'Jonathan Bate writes with as much elegance as insight about the making of theatre and the creation of the plays.' - Richard Eyre, Sunday Telegraph From the Royal Shakespeare Company - a fresh new edition of Shakespeare's gripping political and personal tragedy THIS EDITION INCLUDES: * An illuminating introduction to Coriolanus by award-winning scholar Jonathan Bate * The play - with clear and authoritative explanatory notes on each page * A helpful scene-by-scene analysis and key facts about the play * An introduction to Shakespeare's career and the Elizabethan theatre * A rich exploration of approaches to staging the play featuring photographs of key productions The most enjoyable way to understand a Shakespeare play is to see it or participate in it. This unique edition presents a historical overview of Coriolanus in performance, recommends film versions, takes a detailed look at specific productions and includes interviews with two leading directors -- Gregory Doran and David Farr -- so that we may get a sense of the extraordinary variety of interpretations that are possible, a variety that gives Shakespeare his unique capacity to be reinvented and made 'our contemporary' four centuries after his death. Ideal for students, theatre-goers, actors and general readers, the RSC Shakespeare plays offer an accessible and contemporary approach to reading and rediscovering Shakespeare's works for the twenty-first century.
