James H. Clay (1926-1990) was co-author (with Daniel Krempel) of the internationally respected book on dramatic aesthetics, The Theatrical Image. He was a full professor at Brandeis University, teaching theater courses and directing plays for over thirty years.
The e-book of the classic "The Theatrical Image". A unique volume entirely devoted to "interpretative invention" for the dramatic arts. Dealing with the theater and filmed versions of plays, it concentrates on finding the implied intention of each play, and how to design, direct and act that intent.
