An essential work on the short shelf of any acting student.
This is a fast read, but to remember what the lessons are, I would reco I was assigned this actign in my introductory Drama class. Return to Book Page. I found this book very helpful!
isx The simple exercises described in the chapters on concentration, observation and memory of emotion are great in honing in on those skills and improving a person’s capacity of experiencing the world which is what talent in acting is about. My large format photography teacher decided to make us read this and relate all the lessons in acting to photography.
This book hte itself as a manual on acting, but more than that, it’s a work of fiction; even more than that, it’s a manual on life.
The bits of advice he gives to the Creature are essentially the “lessons” of the book. Want to Read saving…. It makes theoretical issues so easy to understand. Second is memory of emotion, and the ability to connect one’s acting to their own emotional experiences.
It’s written in the form of a conversation which makes it an easy read. The advice, while great, seems vague when not supplemented with practical steps on how to carry it out.

I don’t know how great of a read it would be for someone who has no interest in theater, but I’m sure that everyone can identify with something in this book. Apr 17, Alejandra Bernal rated it it was amazing. I enjoyed the book as a pleasure read, but as a definitive guide on acting? It is in these moments that I think the practice of learning how to act really are the practice of learning how to live.
My teacher gave it to us as a textbook but to me it is a story. Using the old-fashioned technique of a dialogue between teacher and student, six “lessons” are offered revealing the techniques of this psychologically-based acting technique. It definitely extends the scope of the craft of an acting technique.
Everything about it is so beautiful and real. Just a moment while we sign you in to actiing Goodreads account.
