Granville Barker, a secret life
Harley Granville Barker was, in his day, the most famous and respected director in the British theater and his reputation as an actor and playwright stood almost as high. The author examines the three strands in Barker's career and demonstrates that Barker's writing and his practical theater work were--and still are--of great importance and that there is an intrinsic and intricate relationship among them.
