Transposing Drama : Studies in Representation

An examination of five well-known plays with regard to two traditional types of transposition, translation and stage performance, and two more recent types, radio and TV production, in order to throw light on the play texts, their adjustability to transposition and on the characteristics of the transposing media. The plays examined are “A Doll’s House”, “The Wild Duck”, “Miss Julie”, Ghost Sonata” and “Long Day’s Journey into Night”.
