Hamlet, Prince of Denmark by William Shakespeare( Book )

1 edition published in 1999 in German and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"This edition tells the story of Hamlet in production, from Burbage at the Globe to Branagh on film, relating stage interpretations to developments in the theatre, in literary criticism and in society at large." "Hamlet is the most performed play of all time. The stage history records an ongoing process of discovery, as successive performers have found what it is in the play that will speak most powerfully to the audiences of their own time. The introduction focuses not only on star Hamlets, but on whole productions of the play, including supporting players and, in this century, direction and design. Although the volume as a whole concentrates on stage performances in England and the US, outstanding film versions and European stage productions are also featured." "Professor Hapgood makes extensive use of primary sources, especially promptbooks, memoirs and eye-witness accounts. His substantial commentary, printed beneath the text of the play, provides numerous details of line-readings, costuming and stage business culled from this research."--Jacket

Costume drama set in Athens. Polymos lies dejectedly on a couch. He cannot be distracted by the wealth and pleasures around him and puts his hands to his temples as if he was ill. His wife, Chrysis, orders the dancer Chloe to entertain her husband. Chloe appears before Polymos and beginning slowly, she dances for him as if she were the incarnation of a beautiful statue. Polymos succumbs to the charms of her dance and is fascinated by the beauty of the slave. Chrysis becomes jealous, throws herself between the two and chases Chloe out of the room with curses. In the palace garden, Chloe prays to the god of nature and wraps her arms around the neck of the statue. Polymos appears behind her and they run into each other's arms. Later, in the atrium, Chloe notices her master sleeping and approaches him. Polymos is dreaming of Chloe dancing, and when he awakes they embrace. Chrysis, enters and has Chloe thrown in jail. By Chrysis' order, Chloe drinks hemlock. As if in a dream Chloe believes she hears the voice of her master and dances for him one last time.
