Originally published in 1984. The turn of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries was a time of considerable change in the English theatre. Victorian attitudes were shocked or shattered by the new drama of Ibsen; the major figure of George Bernard Shaw dominated the period; theatre censorship was the subject of a long and furious contest; and staging conventions changed from the spectacular stylings of Irving and Beerbohm Tree to the masking and statuesque styles of Isadora Duncan and the inner realism of Stanislavsky. This book traces the activities of the leading figures in the English theatre, notably William Archer who introduced Ibsen to this country and who became one of the main promoters of the idea of a National Theatre. Other personalities discussed include Harley Granville Barker, particularly his association with Shaw at the Court Theatre and his part in campaigns against censorship and for changes in the staging of Shakespeare, and Edward Gordon Craig, whose rebellion against the Victorian theatre took and anti-realist direction. This is a stimulating account of the background to the modern English theatre which can only increase appreciation of its standard and variety.

"He tells the story with masterworks by major artists such as Gossaert, Claude Lorrain, Poussin, Corot, Turner and Feuerbach. It starts in the sixteenth century, when artists became interested in studying and documenting the relics of an ancient past. Their seventeenth-century successors were charmed by the beauty of the countryside and the golden glow of the Italian sunlight. The idealized landscapes they produced became the benchmark for many years to conic. In about 1800 a new trend began - open-air painting, which had its birth in Rome. This led to a new way of looking at the landscape. Side by side with this came an interest in the ordinary people with their unquestioning faith. Around 1900, the rearguard of the Italian artistic Grand Tour became filled with a nostalgic longing, as intense as its object was unattainable."--BOOK JACKET.
