"Edward Braun's excellent book is a highly readable, informative account of the many species of Director that have sprouted in European theatre since the late 19th century." John McGrath (Theatre Research International)
The Director and the Stage: From Naturalism to Grotowski by Edward Braun
Beginning with the triple impulses of Naturalism, symbolism and the grotesque, the bulk of the book concentrates on the most famous directors of this century - Stanislavski, Reinhardt, Graig, Meyerhold, Piscator, Brecht, Artuaud and Grotowski. Braun's guide is more practical than theoretical, delineating how each director changed the tradition that came before him.
