Peter Brook's Woman in Mahabharata, Indrajit Bandyopadhyay

Peter Brook's Woman in Mahabharata

The book analyses in details how Peter Brook portrays the major woman characters of Mahabharata in his theatre and screen-play 'The Mahabharata.' The author compares Brook's portrayal with the Mahabharata Text and finds that it is not so easy to depict the rich ambiguity of woman characters on stage, and this, despite the fact that the Text bears much affinity with Theatre. Despite his laudable attempt to capture Mahabharata and its Woman on stage, Brook's theatre falls short of the glorious ambiguity and complexity of the Woman of Mahabharata.
