Summary
"An actor's deepest desire is to be understood. But when asked to pronounce words like "chanson," "phantasime," or "quaestor," many otherwise unflappable actors can be rendered speechless." "The Eloquent Shakespeare aims to untie those tongues and help anyone speak Shakespeare's language with ease. Over 17,500 entries and copious contextual notes make it the most comprehensive pronunciation guide to Shakespeare's words, from the common to the arcane. Each entry is written in the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) and represents standard American pronunciations, making this dictionary perfect for North American professionals or nonnative speakers of American English." "Renowned Shakespearean voice and text coach Gary Logan has spent years teaching Shakespeare's works to some of the best actors in the world. His book also includes proper names, foreign words and phrases, and an introduction that covers everything from how to interpret the entries to scansion dynamics. Designed especially for actors, directors, stage managers, and teachers, The Eloquent Shakespeare is a one-of-a-kind resource for performing Shakespeare's dramatic works."--Page [4] of cover
