Tip of the Tongue: Reflections on Language and Meaning (Paperback)
A thoughtful and deeply personal book by a master theatre-maker.
In Tip of the Tongue, Peter Brook takes a charming, playful, and wise look at topics such as the subtle, telling differences between French and English, and the many levels on which we can appreciate the works of Shakespeare. Brook also revisits his seminal concept of the "empty space," considering how theatre--and the world--have changed over the span of his long and distinguished career. Threaded throughout with intimate and revealing stories from Brook's own life, Tip of the Tongue is a short but sparkling gift from one of the greatest artists of recent times.Tip of the Tongue is part of Peter Brook's "Reflections" trilogy, along with The Quality of Mercy and Playing by Ear.
