This is believed to be the first book of its kind. Twelve distinguished actors were asked to write about the preparation and performance of a Shakespeare role they had played in a production with the Royal Shakespeare Company.

'This volume of twelve essays by members of the Royal Shakespeare Company is brilliant testimony to the specific and incomparable commentary that actors can be persuaded to provide.' Peter Holland, Theatre Notebook 'Rarely can we participate in the actor's creative process as he or she prepares and performs a specific role, but in this collection we have a concentrated, thoughtful, energetic, and delightful set of essays on the actor's art ... the level is outstandingly high.' Library Journal, New York 'At their best they provide a richness of experience obtainable in no other way ... this is a book I am eager to recommend.' David Bevington, Yearbook of English Studies
