In Speaking Shakespeare, Patsy Rodenburg tackles one of the most difficult acting jobs: speaking Shakespeare's words both as they were meant to be spoken and in an understandable and dramatic way. Patsy calls this 'a simple manual to start the journey into the heart of Shakespeare.' With the same insight she displayed in The Actor Speaks, Patsy tackles the playing of all Shakespeare's char-acters. She uses dramatic resonance, breathing, and place- ment to show how an actor can bring Hamlet, Rosalind, Puck and the others to life. This is one book every working actor must have.
