Laughter, Pain, and Wonder: Shakespeare's Comedies and the Audience in the Theater
University of Delaware Press, 1990 - 197 oldal
This work's chief aim is to restore to readers, performers, and audiences the richness and vitality of Shakespeare's comedies. Richman explores the way in which a reader's relations to Shakespeare's literary texts differ from those of the relations between performers of Shakespeare's works and their audiences. Richman also examines the forms of humor and empathy that Shakespeare's comedies elicit.
