Enter the whole army : a pictorial study of Shakespearean staging, 1576-1616 by C. Walter Hodges( Book )

11 editions published between 1999 and 2004 in English and held by 619 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"C. Walter Hodges enjoys a unique reputation as illustrator and scholar of the Elizabethan theatre. This book consists of fifty of his drawings, with accompanying text, which together reconstruct the original staging of scenes from Shakespeare's plays. It offers imaginative solutions to the puzzling questions which surround those early performances at the large public and smaller private theatres." "Hodges creates visual explanations for specific incidents and bits of stage business in the plays: the different uses of the 'discovery space' and upper stage or gallery; the placing of beds and thrones; the creative use of stage posts and trap-doors; the employment of special effects such as gunfire, or a god descending from the Heavens. He provides solutions to the difficulty of staging, for example, Cleopatra's monument, the siege of Orleans, and in the words of the title, how to represent 'a whole army' by a few actors."--Jacket
