Fergusson Francis. The Idea of a Theater: A Study of Ten Plays
Princeton: Princeton University Press, 1968. — 256 p. — ISBN-10: 9780691012889; ISBN-13: 978-0691012889 — (Art of Drama in Changing Perspective)
An original and beautifully written book on changing perspectives in the art of theater. Through a study of nine plays—Oedipus Rex, Bérénice, Tristan und Isolde, Hamlet, Ghosts, The Cherry Orchard, Six Characters in Search of an Author, Noah, Murder in the Cathedral—the author shows how all playwrights seek to "hold the mirror up to nature" and how in this respect the art of drama is always the same, varying only with the philosophical and aesthetic concepts of each age. The Idea of a Theater will delight both readers with a special interest in drama and those who read drama as a source of insight into man's nature and man’s changing ideas of himself.
