Description

Only the second book ever published on Sir Philip Ben Greet (1857-1936), this is the first to study his U.S. and Canadian tours. Popularising an 'Elizabethan manner' derived from William Poel, Greet's companies constituted what the New York Times called 'a travelling Shakespeare university'. This exhaustively researched and lavishly illustrated book demonstrates how Greet's work has influenced both stage production and academic study of Shakespeare's plays to the present day.
