Book Description

Originally compiled and published in 1970, this volume contains the full text of The Life of Mr. Thomas Betterton, written in 1710. For Charles Gildon, the text is little more than a skeleton upon which, as a dramatic critic, he might drape a full consideration of ‘the action and utterance of the stage,’ and so, the technique of acting and theatrical oratory.
