Exploring Shakespeare: The Dynamics of Playmaking

S. Viswanathan (Author)
Synopsis The studies in this volume are by way of an enquiry into a variety of dramaturgical methods and processes, many of these not much attended to in criticism until now, that contribute to the theatrical dynamics of the Shakespeare plays. The book unravels the function and effect of many such poetic, rhetorical, topological, visual and theatrical devices which Shakespeare exploits in an ‘exploratory – creative’ manner. Together, the essays bring some idea of the multidimensional totality of theatre language and communication which Shakespeare achieves through a masterful orchestration of resources.
