1 Brown, Frederick Theater and Revolution - The Culture of the French Stage
New York The Viking Press 1980 0670698024 / 9780670698028 First Edition Hard Cover Near Fine Very Good 
A near Fine unmarked copy (Fine apart from a small crease to lower spine tail) with VG dustjacket which is not price clipped. xv + 490 pages. Illustrated throughout with drawings, engravings and photographs. The book traces the history of popular theatrical forms in France from their heyday in the 18th century to their revival and transformation in the 20th century. The author's theme throughout is the deep divide between 'official' French culture and a popular tradition that survived on the edges of civic life, adapting itself to the censorial policies imposed first by the monarchy and later by bourgeois governments. The book is an important contribution to European cultural history and contains some fascinating personal stories: the interwoven portraits of major figures in European theter are remarkable contributions to the biographical genre. **** A HEAVY VOLUME OF 1.015 KILO UNPACKED WEIGHT WHICH MAY REQUIRE ADDITIONAL SHIPPING COST **** 
Price: 12.00 GBP
