National Cultural History in Public Spaces: The Theater, the Press, the Great War

  • Lynne Walhout Hinojosa


On October 24, 1905, in the third year of its existence, the London Shakespeare League sponsored a public discussion on “The Best Method of Presenting Shakespeare’s Plays.”1 Arguments were presented or sent in by many of the most prominent theater and Shakespeare authorities in London: Shakespearean actor-managers Arthur Bourchier and Herbert Beerbohm Tree; playwrights George Bernard Shaw, Henry Arthur Jones, and W. S. Gilbert; Shakespeare scholars A. C. Bradley, Sidney Lee, and F. J. Furnivall (then President of the League); director William Poel; and clergyman Stewart Headlam, among others. At the center of all debate stood the opposition between the methods of stage presentation offered by Beerbohm Tree and William Poel.
