Chekhov's enduring themes of change, time and family fidelity take on new resonances in Suzman's adaptation."--BOOK JACKET

Not Hamlet : meditations on the frail position of women in drama by Janet Suzman( Book )

4 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Shakespeare's Cleopatra, La Pucelle, Ophelia, Shaw's St Joan and Ibsen's Hedda - a handful of 'seminal' roles for women in the classical canon. Janet Suzman has played them all and directed some. Here she examines their complexity and explores why only Cleopatra has an independence that allows her to speak to modern women. None of these, regrettably, matches up to a Hamlet, but as she is grateful for the parts he did write, Suzman feels a lightly-barbed attack on those who work in theatre and doubt Shakespeare's authorship is way overdue. She also takes issue with received ideas on boy actors playing mature women in Shakespeare's company, and refl ects on how female characters in classical drama have not been on a level with their male counterparts. Today, on TV, fi lm and the stage, this remains the case. Not Hamlet but Hamlette, please
