Shakespeare for Snowflakes - On Slapstick and Sympathy

Regular price £12.99 £0.00

Drawing on plays by Shakespeare, Sarah Kane, Sophocles, Samuel Beckett, and others, this book examines the ways in which these dramatists manipulated the actor's body to demand laughter and/or sympathy. Ian Burrows shows how these strategies can be thought about beyond the stage-space: in the classroom, in the media, and in relation to the social construction of 'snowflake culture' as a 21st century phenomenon.
