Freeing Shakespeare's Voice

The actor's guide to talking the text (new edition)

Kristin Linklater
 

A practical approach to breaking through the barriers of restraint and incomprehension when faced with Shakespeare.

Taking many of the techniques explored in her international bestseller Freeing The Natural Voice, in this companion volume Kristin Linklater shows how to apply them to the exploration and speaking of Shakespeare’s language.

Beginning with exercises designed to break long-held habits and allow an emotional rather than intellectual relationship to Elizabethan language, she analyses Shakespeare's strategies for creating character, story and meaning through figures of speech, iambic pentameter, rhyme and the alternation of verse and prose. Using copious examples from the plays, Linklater offers her readers the tools to increase understanding and make Shakespeare's words their own.

Freeing the Natural Voice

Imagery and Art in the Practice of Voice and Language

Kristin Linklater
 

The classic voice-training book for actors, teachers of voice and speech and anyone interested in vocal expression – by a pre-eminent voice teacher, actor and director. Fully revised and expanded edition.

Linklater's approach is to liberate the voice you have rather than apply vocal techniques from the outside. Her basic assumption is that everyone possesses a voice capable of expressing whatever emotion, mood or thought he/she experiences.

This edition incorporates vocal exercises developed over three decades to help the voice connect viscerally with language – a key element in the actors' craft.
