This enduring classic in the field of oral interpretation provides students new to the study of performance with a solid foundation in literary analysis and performance. More than 100 classic and contemporary poems, short stories, and dramatic works are included to inspire student performance. The Tenth Edition maintains the authors' philosophy that scholarship, technical know-how, sensitivity, and the desire to share are cornerstones of interpretation. Placing a heightened emphasis on performance studies, this edition also strives to broaden the scope of oral interpretation with frequent references to interests and experiences students may encounter across the curriculum.
