Shakespeare's Game Reviews
First, you'll need to have read several works of Shakespeare to follow the logic of Gibson and his method to great playwriting.Second, be patient, his examples make sense eventually.Third, when you get to the end of the book, he explains what it all means in a few conclusive pages. In fact, if you just read this part alone I think you'll feel satisfied. But don't.Gibson wrote my favorite play, The Miracle Worker, and after reading his one and only book on playwriting now I know why. He only has Sir W. Shakespeare to thank for his brilliant adaptation of Helen Keller's life story. There is something powerful to a play's performance that leaves you so genuinely fulfilled and glad you came!
I'm re-reading this fine book as an aid to teaching playwriting. I loved this book the first time I read it. It's great now, too, though for people (such as my students) who are not Shakespeare afficionados, I'm not sure the book would be useful. To people who know and love Shakespeare, the lessons learned from the bard are brilliantly culled, helpful and memorable.
Great read. Great blend of Shakespeare's genius and Gibson's tone.
