    Book Description

    From the Royal Shakespeare Company -- a fresh new edition of Shakespeare's dark comedy of sexual desire and hypocrisy THIS EDITION INCLUDES: * An introduction to Measure for Measure 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 Measure for Measure in performance, recommends film versions, takes a detailed look at specific productions and includes interviews with one leading director and two actors - Trevor Nunn, Roger Allam, and Josette Simon - 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 editions offer an accessible and contemporary approach to reading and rediscovering Shakespeare's works for the twenty-first century.
