Creative Speech: The Formative Process of the Spoken Word: A Selection of Lectures Exercises and Articles (Paperback) by Steiner Rudolf Steiner Marie
In this seminal work on a new art of speech Rudolf and Marie Steiner demonstrate how the Word can truly be brought to life. From the authors' perspective the audible sound of speech is only the end result of a much greater process that begins inwardly. In contrast to the belief that speaking is entirely a matter of correct placement in the mouth Rudolf Steiner advises speakers to concentrate on what takes place before the mechanical production of sound is made in the physical organism. Relevant to actors teachers therapists and anybody seeking to reinvigorate the art of the Word this book will be an invaluable friend and guide to improving clarity and restoring beauty to communication.
