Critiquing Amadeus by Peter Shaffer

- Critiquing Amadeus by Peter Shaffer I believe that there are two ways to critique Peter Shaffer's Amadeus. The first, and the easiest for me, is as an artistic work only. As an artistic endeavor, Amadeus is a triumph. Particularly stunning is F. Murray Abraham's performance as the tortured Court Composer Antonio Salieri. Abraham portrays a talented yet mediocre musician who, having revered God all his life, shows us clearly that "pride goeth before the fall". It is Salieri's greed for fame, and pride in his own "moral goodness" that lead him to denounce Mozart as a "fiend"....   [tags: Papers]
