Gabriella Reuss

Gabriella Reuss is Senior Lecturer in English Literature at Pázmány Péter Catholic University, Hungary. Her doctoral dissertation dealt with the promptbook of the earliest restoration of Shakespeare’s King Lear in 1834 which she found to exist in the Bodleian Library, Oxford. Presently she is working on her volume about the way this unique manuscript was once used by W. C. Macready and the way his interpretation of Lear influenced theatrical and cultural heritage. Her other fields of interest have been and several of her publications are concerned with the adaptive processes within the theatre as related to adaptation theory, the often communal creation of texts for the stage as related to the canonization of promptbooks/playtexts, with occasional investigations on 19th century Hungarian performance history.
