Texte du rabat

When the 1920's generation was casting off Victorian inhibitions, John Barrymore emerged as the first actor to bring the vocal and physical manner of a post-World War I gentleman to Shakespeare's RICHARD III and HAMLET, and yet reinterpret time-honored roles in light of modern psychological theory. Here Michael Morrison reconstructs these historic performances and traces their Victorian and Edwardian antecedents. 40 photos.
