Synopsis

This volume examines the ways in which Shakespeare's plays are designed for hearers as well as spectators and shows how Shakespeare's stagecraft, actualized both on stage and screen, revolves around various hearing conventions such as soliloquies, asides, eavesdropping, overhearing, and stage whispers. In short, Who Hears in Shakespeare? enunciates Shakespeare's nuanced, powerful stagecraft of hearing.
