The Player As Director: An Approach to Character


In lieu of an abstract, the first paragraph of the essay follows:

Actaeon the hunter was a visionary. Not content with the limitless pursuit of game at his pleasure, Actaeon envisioned the ideal hunt, a spectacle in which he would assemble the most adept of hunters, the finest breed of dogs and the most noble stag to undertake a chase upon a meadow of pastoral splendor.1 Months of intense training focused upon the moment when his vision would be fulfilled. Each aspect of the performance had been rehearsed. He had selected the setting, trained his men to follow their cues, and even his large supporting cast of hounds he could call by name. and birth. They had all conned the script. What now remained was simply to await the morrow when the actual performance would be realized.
