- ... At the very beginning of the play Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are introduced for the first time to the band of actors on the road however, as soon as the introduction takes place the names are reversed and they are introduced by the others name.

- Tom Stoppard's Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead Tom Stoppard's Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead, a humorous piece of self-reflexive theater that draws upon Shakespeare's Hamlet as the source of the story. The actual device of self-reflexive theater is used so well in Stoppard's play that it reads like the love child of a play and a compelling critical essay.

- The entirety of Tom Stoppard’s play Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead is intended to provide a “dumbshow” for its audience. A dumbshow, as defined by the Player, is a “device,” which “makes the action that follows more or less comprehensible” (77). In this case, the action to follow is the rest of the audience’s lives. The play questions the audience’s very perception and understanding of existence and reality itself. If Stoppard were to have his way, a person waltzing into the theater containing any measure of arrogance would have to crawl on their way out; limbs broken from the violent crash back down to earth, laughing madly all the way....

- Arcadia by Tom Stoppard Some critics have suggested that the dazzling intellectual display in Stoppard’s plays comes at the expense of genuine emotional engagement. We are amused, intrigued, even educated but we do not feel any real sympathy for his characters. How far do you find this true of Arcadia. The first thing we notice about this play is its intellectual brilliance. The characters are amusing and we are interested in how they relate to each other. As the play goes on, however, we do not find it easy to care about most of Stoppard’s characters.... [tags: Arcadia Tom Stoppard Essays]

- Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead, written in the 1960s by playwright Tom Stoppard, is a transforation of Shakespeare’s Hamlet. Stoppard effectively relocates Shakespeare’s play to the 1960s by reassessing and revaluating the themes and characters of Hamlet and considering core values and attitudes of the 1960s- a time significantly different to that of Shakespeare. He relies on the audience’s already established knowledge of Hamlet and transforms a revenge tragedy into an Absurd drama, which shifts the focus from royalty to common man.... [tags: Tom Stoppard]
