SUMMARY

The theatrical endeavours that took place in Iceland during 1860 to 1920, gradually brought about a consciousness of ability and quality which was a prerequisite for professionalism. In the evolution of a theatre or theatrical phenomena in any country, the step from amateurish endeavours to professional art is crucial. Indeed, the social and artistic consequences of such a step are of the utmost significance for a country's culture in general. The signs of this development can be noticed in totally different criteria ranging from playwriting and repertory to the art of playing. The eventual transition into professionalism can form the ultimate goal both for those directly involved and for all theatre lovers in any given society. The borderline between amateur and professional theatre is nonetheless a thin one. One grows out of the other. Indeed amateur theatre provides the roots for a living professional theatre, which in turn offers both model and stimulation to those who follow. The role of the amateur theatre in this regard is often underestimated. These and other issues are discussed in this fascinating book by Iceland's leading expert on the theater.Einarsson, Sveinn is the author of 'People's Theater Comes of Age A Study of Icelandic Theater 1860-1920', published 2007 under ISBN 9789979547280 and ISBN 9979547286.
