Providing a critical performance analysis, this study closely examines a few key plays from each age-medieval times to the present-to demonstrate how they succeed on stage. It also focuses on several major playwrights-Marlowe, Shakespeare, Jonson, and Shaw-and discusses their stagecraft in detail. But honestly speaking, there are now many new data which should be covered if there is a better history than Styan's.

The English Stage tells the story of drama through its many changes in style and convention from medieval times to the present day. With a wide sweep of coverage, John Styan analyses the key features of staging, including early street theatre and public performance, the evolution of the playhouse and the private space, and the pairing of theory and stagecraft in the works of modern dramatists. He focuses on the conventions by which a playwright, actors and their audience create the phenomenon of theatre and the way such conventions have changed over time.

SANDER M. GOLDBERG University of California, Los Angeles J. Styan

SANDER M. Styan. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 1996. Professor Styan rejects the first possibility emphatically -there is very little exploration of new or neglected evidence here, no flirting with modish notions of New Dramas in English or minority theaters. The story told is a familiar one, and the manner of its telling equally conventional. We are presented with a chronological narrative taking in the canonical authors and "mile posts" of dramatic history.

The English Stage tells the story of drama through its many changes in style and convention from medieval times to the present day. With a wide sweep of coverage, John Styan analyses the key features of staging, including early street theatre and public performance, the evolution of the playhouse and the private space, and the pairing of theory and stagecraft in the works of modern dramatists. He focuses on the conventions by which a playwright, actors and their audience create the phenomenon of theatre and the way such conventions have changed over time. Styan can be considered among a small number of influential scholars who have helped to develop theatre history from its origins in literary studies into an independent and respected field. From the vantage point of a lifetime's study he examines and illustrates the multitude of factors which have brought and continue to bring plays to life.
