The Sourcebooks, "Shakespeare Experience" takes you from stage to page. Hear...Read...See this "Tragedy" like never before. This is a masterful and tragic plot, sprung out of ambition for power - a concise and moving account of a man descending into evil. This work features the full text of "Macbeth", with glossary and performance annotations. An integral audio CD showcases that deeper understanding and enjoyment come from the power of performance. Also included are interviews and essays from notable Shakespeare scholars and performers, including: different interpretations and productions of Shakespeare's plays throughout history; Shakespeare in Pop culture - the play's influence on and interplay with movies, music and TV; and behind the scenes interviews with members of a contemporary, professional cast. Royal Shakespeare Company voice coach, Andrew Wade shares his perspective on "Speaking Shakespeare"; and Thomas Garvey on the Elizabethan period and its influences on Shakespeare and his writing.
