Gielgud, Olivier, Ashcroft, Dench : Great Shakespeareans: Volume XVI Paperback / softback

Edited by Professor Russell Jackson

Part of the Great Shakespeareans series


In their own distinctive manner, each of the four actors discussed in this volume have had a profound and innovative influence on the methods of Shakespearean performance, and thus on the appreciation and interpretation of his plays.

Their careers encompass almost a century of theatrical experience, from John Gielgud's childhood before the First World War to Judi Dench's performances in the first decades of the new millennium.

The volume affords invaluable insights into changing approaches to the actor's craft, the aims and methods of the theatre, the institutions presenting productions and, above all, to Shakespeare's plays themselves.
