about this item

Texts for the Stage: Studies in Script Analysis is a play-analysis textbook that contains multiple essays on a number of geographically diverse, historically significant dramas and dramatists. These critical essays cover some of the central plays treated—and central issues raised—in today’s dramatic literature courses and will provide students with practical models to help them improve their own writing and analytical skills. The author is a "close reader" committed to a detailed yet relatively objective examination of the structure, style, imagery, and language of a play. Moreover, he is concerned chiefly with dramatic analysis that can be of benefit to directors, designers, and even actors—that is, with analysis of character, action, dialogue, and setting that can be translated into concepts for theatrical production, or that can at least provide the kind of understanding of a play with which a theater practitioner could fruitfully quarrel. Texts for the Stage: Studies in Script Analysis contains a useful critical apparatus: bibliographies, a glossary of dramatic terms, a guide to play analysis, topics for writing and discussion, and a comprehensive index.
