The Semiotics of Theatre and Drama by Keir Elam

Return to Book Page. The late twentieth century saw an explosion of interest in semiotics, the science of the signs and processes by which we communicate. In this study, the first of its kind in English, Keir Elam shows how this new ‘science’ can provide a radical shift in our understanding of theatrical performance, one of our richest and most complex forms of communication.

Elam traces the h The late twentieth century saw an explosion of interest in semiotics, the science of the signs and processes by which we communicate.

Elam traces the history of semiotic approaches to performance, from s Prague onwards, and presents a model of theatrical communication. In the course of his study, he touches upon the ‘logic’ of the drama and the analysis of dramatic discourse. This edition also includes a new post-script by the author, looking at the fate of theatre semiotics since the publication of this book, and semootics fully updated bibliography.

Much praised for its accessibility, The Semiotics of Theatre and Drama remains a ‘must-read’ text for all those interested thw the analysis of theatrical performance.

Lists with This Book. Sep 08, Phillip rated it really liked it Shelves: Although a lot of what I wrote in my original review is still correct, I think it was somewhat uncharitable. This time I read through the entire book, and while it is an overview of things that are dealt with in more depth in other places. But in fairness, that is pretty much the purpose of the New Accents series. The book presents a wide variety of issues facing the drama theorist, including issues of enunciation, gesture, and both social, anv, and ideolectic codes.

One of t Second Review: One of the principle points made throughout this book is the number of challenges inherent in semiotic analysis of theatre as live performance, partially because of the singularity of live performance, and partially because of the multiple semiotic codes working simultaneously in theatre. It’s more like I stopped reading this than that I actually finished. A drama professor told me that Elam’s book is good for what it does, which isn’t much.

From what I read I agree. From what I read, Elam seems to take the principles of semiotics–which one can get pretty thoroughly from a book like Barthes’ Elements of Semiotics–and apply them to the theatre as a complex system of signs borrowing from multiple sub-types of semiotic study e.

But as far as I can tell, other than pointing out that theatre is not a simplistic semiotic discipline, kf book doesn’t really add much original insight or new information to the field of semiotics or the field of theatre studies.
