Shakespeare for Snowflakes : On Slapstick and Sympathy Paperback / softback
by Ian Burrows
Paperback / softback
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.
