Published on the tenth anniversary of his death, a new edition of Michael Redgrave's famous book on acting -- with a new introduction by his daughter Vanessa.
Written when Michael Redgrave was at the height of his power and acclaim, "The Actor's Ways and Means" is a spirited and knowledgeable account of the most influential ideas about the art and craft of acting. Drawing on his own direct experience, Redgrave evaluates the influence of famous actors and directors, from Copeau to Stanislavski, from Meyerhold to Edward Gordon Craig.
This new edition is supplemented with sixteen pages of photos from the Redgrave family collection.
"Both instructive and amusing, this is a highly unusual book."
-Eric Bentley, "The New Republic
"What is striking about this book...is the dignity, the intelligence and the scope of reference Redgrave brings to his discussion."
-Harold Clurman, "The Nation
"This review of the actor's art and possibilities is highly concentrated, erudite, written with great clarity and of absorbing interest."
"A book to be treasured by any true playgoer."
