Happy Alchemy: On the Pleasures of Music & the Theatre
Robertson Davies (au); Jennifer Surridge (ed); Brenda Davies (ed). Robertson Davies’s death in December 1995 was marked in obituaries around the world. Not only was he one of Canada’s most distinguished men of letters, but he was also a novelist whose unique voice spoke to a vast international audience. The happy alchemy in this delightful book transforms subjects ranging from Greek drama & 18th-century farce to contemporary set design, from the trouble with “Hamlet” as opera to the sheer delight of Lewis Carroll & “Dickens & Music.” The editors have produced tantalizing quotes from Davies’s private diaries to help introduce each of the book’s essays (& verse, libretto, & even screenplay). “A rare treat for Davies disciples, theater buffs, & music lovers alike.”
