The Fool in European Theatre : Stages of Folly Hardback


Why is folly essential to the functioning of a healthy society?

Why is theatre a natural home for madness? The answers take the reader on a journey embracing Shakespeare and Jonson, Brecht and Beckett, Buchner and Boal.

From Falstaff to Fo via Figaro, this study examines the art of telling truth to power and surviving long enough to have a laugh.
