- We can order this
Page to Stage helps users evaluate a work of literature for its theatrical potential, to discern and appreciate particular elements and strategies (including aural values in the language, appeals to visual imagination, structural resemblance's to works of theatre, genre tropes, character types, implied mise-en-scene, etc.). Vincent Murphy challenges scholars of literature and performance not simply to borrow ideas, but to apply theatrical analysis in their own original ways in order to identify in literature the elements and potentials of performance and theatre. The book will establish the systematic development of principles and techniques for literary adaptation and bridge the gap between literature and stagecraft.
