Sendes vanligvis innen 7-15 dager
This is a new, revised and updated paperback edition of the acclaimed first full-length critical assessment of this most individual, challenging, conceptually energetic of British dramatists, whose recognition has extended to a position of international eminence. It traces Barker's movements in style towards a unique form of political expressionism, his characteristically ruthless and holy vision of sexuality and its radicalising power, and the honing of an unparalleled verbal style based on extravagant rhythms and painful wit which alternately undermines and elevates. Rabey discusses Barker's achievements in a spirit of theatrical, political and sexual re-evaluation, in conversations with noted stage interpreters of Barker: Penny Downie, Paul Freeman, Gary Oldman, Maggie Steed, Harriet Walter and Ian McDiarmid.
