John Barrymore´s Richard III and Hamlet, first seen in New York during the 1919 20 and 1922 23 seasons, stand as high-water marks of twentieth-century Shakespearean interpretation. Many of the conventions of modern practice can be traced to Barrymore´s performances: he was the first actor to bring the vocal and physical manner of a post-War gentleman to Shakespeare´s tragic protagonists; he was the first to reinterpret time-honored roles in light of modern psychological theory. Michael Morrison reconstructs these historic performances through analysis of the production preparation, audience response, reviews, and memoirs. Tracing the Victorian and Edwardian antecedents of Shakespearean performance, this book situates Barrymore´s distinctive contribution in light of past and ensuing tradition. As well, it provides a biographical sketch of one of the most revered and tragic actors of the twentieth century.

ID: 3102239

Toward the end of his life, master actor John Barrymore became an embarrassment: he was a classic drunken has-been who could neither pull it together nor pack it in. But this unusual biography spends most of its pages on Barrymore's golden age in the 1920s and 1930s, describing in amazing pre-videotape detail his performances at the height of his powers, playing what may be the 20th century's definitive Hamlet, along with Macbeth and other classical roles. Michael Morrison draws on books, memories, reviews, and other material to present painstaking line-by-line recreations of Barrymore's most shining performances. 20th century,adaptations,american literature,arts and literature,arts music and photography,biographical,biographies,biographies and history,biography and history,drama Entertainers, Cambridge University Press
