Ambivalences: A Portrait of Arnold Wesker from A to W

Arnold Wesker, Chiara Montenero

PaperBack (30 Aug 2011)

Ambivalences: A Portrait of Arnold Wesker from A to W is a document of Arnold Wesker in conversation with the Italian academic Chiara Montenero. In their wide-ranging discussions, Wesker and Montenero address his ideas on art and drama with a particular focus on some of his most enduring characters. Betraying his reputation as theatre’s ‘perennial outsider’, Ambivalences finds Wesker in generous and engaging form, offering a rich and unique insight into the mind of one of the key figures in 20th-century drama.
