It’s time for some show and tell. I’m curious to hopefully find some new reading material…So who’s reading some good books right now?
Currently I’m working on a very interesting piece called The Shakespearean Dramaturg: A Theoretical and Practical Guide by Andrew James Hartley. He’s the resident Dramaturg at the Georgia Shakespeare Festival. There’s a lot of cool thoughts on editing scripts; working with directors, designers, actors; and lots about how to effectively serve the production rather than become “The Shakespeare Police.” I’ll post a write up after I’m finished.
Next on my list will be Think On My Words: Exploring Shakespeare’s Language by David Crystal, co-author of Shakespeare’s Words. I’m very excited to read that. I don’t know too much about it but I’m a fan of the author.
And after that I enter into the world of Shakespearean fiction novels for the first time. What’s on your reading list?
