Changing styles in Shakespeare by Ralph Berry( Book )

17 editions published between 1981 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 482 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in 1981. Each of Shakespeare's plays is in a continuous state of development in performance. This book examines major changes whilst focusing on six plays in detail: Coriolanus, Measure for Measure, Troilus and Cressida, Henry V, Hamlet and Twelfth Night. Changing Styles in Shakespeare looks at representative and key productions to trace the evolution of each play on today's stage, illustrating how production changes relate to a changed perception of the play, and thus to shifts in social attitudes.

Shakespeare in performance : castings and metamorphoses by Ralph Berry( Book )

17 editions published between 1993 and 2016 in English and held by 386 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"These studies of Shakespeare in performance take stage history as a means of knowing the play. Half of the studies deal with casting, the immediate 'how' of production: doubling, Chorus and the crowd, the star of Hamlet and Measure for Measure. The transformations of Dramatis Personae are analysed, and The Tempest is viewed through the changing relationships of Prospero, Ariel and Caliban. Some of Shakespeare's most original strategies for controlling the audience are analysed. Cordelia, through her two early soliloquies, tells us what to think. The audience of Richard II is encouraged, through its subversive laughter, to take another view of the action. The scenic alternation of pleasure and duty is the basic programming of Henry IV. Performance is the realization of identity."--Jacket
Tragic instance : the sequence of Shakespeare's tragedies by Ralph Berry( Book )

5 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 360 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Tragic Instance follows Shakespeare's progress through his tragedies. The book accepts Kenneth Muir's prescription, "There is no such thing as Shakespearian Tragedy: there are only Shakespearian tragedies." Accordingly, each of the tragedies, from Titus Andronicus to Coriolanus, is studied in order of composition. Richard III and Richard II are included because each is described as "tragedy" on the title page. No larger unity is seen. The play is everything that is the case."--Jacket

Shakespeare's settings and a sense of place by Ralph Berry( Book )

5 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Shakespeare's plays are powerfully shaped by their sense of place. From Romeo and Juliet's fiery, divided Verona to the mists and ghosts of Hamlet's Denmark or Macbeth's Inverness, location in Shakespeare is often as much a character as any of his protagonists. Unlike his other characters, however, it is still possible to visit many of the locations in Shakespeare's plays, and author and scholar Ralph Berry does just that, visiting each of the places that inspired the Bard's imagination. Examining locations Shakespeare knew from personal experience, such as Windsor; locations he created through imagination, such as Elsinore, based on far-off Kronborg Castle; and locations important because Shakespeare's plays were performed there, such as Hampton Court and the Great Hall of the Middle Temple, the book is a vivid and unique approach to the great author's work
