Popular Appeal in English Drama to 1850
Macmillan, 1982 - 221 Seiten
This book discusses the importance of music-hall to the development of English drama, and many music-hall acts are analysed, a number with reference to the responses of the audience before whom they were recorded. The different but related dramatic techniques of epic drama and the music-hall tradition are considered with reference to the work of T.S. Eliot, Thornton Wilder, Beckett, Osborne, Arden, Pinter, Albee, Griffiths and Nichols. Finally, the phenomenon of abusing the audience is discussed, particular reference being made to Handke's "Offending the Audience" and the Royal Shakespeare Company's "US".
