Education and Dramatic Art 2nd Edition


In this edition of his classic critique of drama education in schools, David Hornbrook brings the argument up-to-date and locates his proposals for a curriculum based on the making, performing and appraisal of dramas securely in the evolving culture of schools. Education and Dramatic Art critiques the often-muddy idealism that pervades drama productions in schools and the teaching of dramatic texts.


In its paradoxical neglect of the customs and practices of the theatre, he argues, this aesthetically impoverished vision has kept, from the students it professed to empower, the very knowledge and understanding which would have allowed them to take command of their subject. In its place, Hornbrook offers a clear and definitive pedagogy of drama that promises to put the study of dramatic art back at the center of literary training.
