Example text

There is always a potential interstice in the text. ” Within the range of a certain typology one can imagine Hamlet doing and being many things that are not written into his character. What a dramatic text offers the actor is an ideal portrait, an abstraction, that can be made real in a thousand ways. 26 • THE ACTOR’S PRESENCE Let us take two instances from theatre history that will dramatize the range of the actor’s self-expressiveness. ” This is not entirely the metaphor it may seem. Kean was obviously such an actor, an idea that Sartre develops very wittily in his play about Kean.

In the third act of La Dame aux Camelias, where she produces a touching effect by throwing herself down, and presently rises with her face changed and flushed with weeping, the flush is secured by the preliminary plunge to a stooping attitude, imagination or no imagination; but Magda’s blush did not admit of that explanation; and I must confess to an intense professional curiosity as to whether it always comes spontaneously.

The consequence of this split is that all meaning, logical connection, reasoning, and conceptualization are aligned with mental or rational operations, while perception, imagination, and feeling are aligned with bodily operations (Johnson 1987: xxv).
