Shakespeare for Snowflakes : On Slapstick and Sympathy, Paperback / softback Book

Shakespeare for Snowflakes : On Slapstick and Sympathy Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

Drawing on plays by Shakespeare, Sarah Kane, Sophocles, Samuel Beckett, and others, this book examines the ways in which these dramatists manipulated the actor's body to demand laughter and/or sympathy.

Ian Burrows shows how these strategies can be thought about beyond the stage-space: in the classroom, in the media, and in relation to the social construction of 'snowflake culture' as a 21st century phenomenon.
