Shakespeare and the Energies of Drama
summary

Shakespeare's texts are seen by the poet and critic Michael Goldman as designs for theatrical experience—the complex emotional, physical, and intellectual transaction between actor and audience that brings alive Shakespeare's imagination and makes it immediate to our own. Mr. Goldman's particular concerns are these: what the audience responds to in an acted play; how Shakespeare controls and shapes this response; what the response means, and why it matters.

Originally published in 1972.
