Shakespeare for Snowflakes

Publisher: John Hunt Publishing Release date: 2020-09-25

Description

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.
