Exposed by the Mask: Form and Language in Drama

Peter Hall

Exposed by the Mask: Form and Language in Drama by Peter Hall

In these four lectures Peter Hall reveals a lifetime of discoveries about classical theatre, Shakespeare, opera and modern drama. The central argument is that form and structured language paradoxically give freedom to power of thought and feeling, much as the masks of early Greek drama enabled actors to express extreme emotion. The mask may take many forms - the precise language of Beckett and Pinter, the classical form of Mozart's operas, or Shakespeare's verse.

Reprinted to form part of the Oberon Masters series, a brand new collection of attractive hardbacks on key themes within the arts written...

An Absolute Turkey

Georges Feydeau & Peter Hall & Nicki Frei

Sociable Cities: The 21st-Century Reinvention of the Garden City

Peter Hall & Colin Ward

Sociable Cities: The 21st-Century Reinvention of the Garden City by Peter Hall & Colin Ward

Peter Hall and Colin Ward wrote Sociable Cities to celebrate the centenary of publication of Ebenezer Howard's To-morrow: A Peaceful Path to Real Reform in 1998 - an event they then marked by co-editing (with Dennis Hardy) the magnificent annotated facsimile edition of Howard's original, long lost and very scarce, in 2003. In this revised edition of Sociable Cities, sadly now without Colin Ward, Peter Hall writes: 'the sixteen years separating the two editions of this book seem almost like geological time. Revisiting the 1998 edition is like going back deep into ancient history'. The glad confident...

Working Capital: Life and Labour in Contemporary London

Nick Buck & Ian Gordon & Peter Hall

Working Capital: Life and Labour in Contemporary London by Nick Buck & Ian Gordon & Peter HallFor decades the cities of the developed world were seen as problem-beset relics from times of low mobility and slow communications. But now, their potential to sustain creativity, culture and innovation is perceived as crucial to success in a much more competitive global ecomony. The vital requirement to secure and sustain this success is argued to be the achievement of social cohesion.

Working Capital provides a rigorous but accessible analysis of these key issues taking London as its test case. The book provides the first substantial analysis of key economic, social and structural issues that...

Good Cities, Better Lives: How Europe Discovered the Lost Art of Urbanism

Peter Hall

Good Cities, Better Lives: How Europe Discovered the Lost Art of Urbanism by Peter Hall

This book has one central theme: how, in the United Kingdom, can we create better cities and towns in which to live and work and play? What can we learn from other countries, especially our near neighbours in Europe? And, in turn, can we provide lessons for other countries facing similar dilemmas?

Urban Britain is not functioning as it should. Social inequalities and regional disparities show little sign of going away. Efforts to generate growth, and spread it to the poorer areas of cities, have failed dismally. Much new urban development and redevelopment is not up to standard. Yet there are...
