Rogues and Vagabonds is a series of entertaining anecdotes about actors and the art of acting from Shakespeare's time until the coming of Henry Irving in the late 19th century. It includes extracts from plays such as Hamlet, Othello and Henry V, passages from Dickens and Fielding, and poems from 20th-century "rogues" such as Noel Coward and Louis MacNeice. And, of course, there's a good bawdy tale or two. Enjoy this fascinating history of the joys and pains of a profession as old as the hills.
