Автор: Judith Weil Название: Service and Dependency in Shakespeare`s Plays ISBN: 0521844053 ISBN-13(EAN): 9780521844055 Издательство: Cambridge Academ Рейтинг: Цена: 6973 р. Наличие на складе: Есть у поставщика Поставка под заказ.
Описание: This is an unusual study of the nature of service and other types of dependency and patronage in Shakespeare’s drama. By considering the close associations of service with childhood or youth, marriage and friendship, Judith Weil sheds light on social practice and dramatic action. Approached as dynamic explorations of a familiar custom, the plays are shown to demonstrate a surprising consciousness of obligations, and a fascination with how dependants actively change each other. They help us understand why early modern people may have found service both frightening and enabling. Attentive to a range of historical sources, and social and cultural issues, Weil also emphasizes the linguistic ambiguities created by service relationships, and their rich potential for interpretation on the stage. The book includes close readings of dramatic sequences in twelve plays, including Hamlet, Macbeth, The Taming of the Shrew and King Lear.
Описание: This lively and accessible 2007 introduction discusses each of Shakespeare's history plays, and their distinctive characteristics, in turn: the three early Henry VI plays; Richard III; King John; Richard II; Henry IV 1 and 2; Henry V; and Henry VIII. An invaluable guide to these fascinating and complex plays.
Описание: Shakespeare’s history plays, as fresh today as when they were written, are based upon the assumption that time is not simply a destroyer but a preserver, and that ‘examples past’ might enable us to understand the present and anticipate the future. This lively study examines the continuing tradition of Shakespeare’s history plays in stage and film productions as well as giving an account of the critical debate on these plays. Following two introductory chapters giving essential background on the genre, the English history plays are discussed in turn, bringing out the distinctive characteristics of each play: the three early Henry VI plays; the perennial stage favourite Richard III; King John; Richard II; Henry IV 1 and 2, famous for the character of Falstaff; Henry V, which is treated very differently in the film versions by Olivier and Branagh; and Henry VIII. An invaluable introduction to these fascinating and complex plays.

Описание: David Schalkwyk offers a sustained reading of Shakespeare’s sonnets in relation to his plays. He argues that the language of the sonnets is primarily performative rather than descriptive, and bases this distinction on the philosophy of Ludwig Wittgenstein and J. L. Austin. In a wide-ranging analysis of both the 1609 Quarto of Shakespeare’s sonnets and the Petrarchan discourses in a selection of plays, Schalkwyk addresses such issues as embodiment and silencing, interiority and theatricality, inequalities of power, status, gender and desire, both in the published poems and on the stage and in the context of the early modern period. In a provocative discussion of the question of proper names and naming events in the sonnets and plays, the book seeks to reopen the question of the autobiographical nature of Shakespeare’s sonnets.

Описание: Introducing readers to the key texts, theatrical practice and context of late seventeenth-century drama, David Roberts combines literary and theatrical approaches to show how Restoration plays were written, performed, received and printed. Structured according to the 'life cycle' of the dramatic text, this book reproduces extracts from twenty-four of the most influential Restoration plays to provide readers with a comprehensive and colourful introduction to the period's drama. Roberts encourages readers to look beyond a limited canon of established plays and practice, and to see how Restoration Drama has been revived and adapted on the modern stage. Restoration Plays and Players is of great interest to undergraduate and non-specialist readers of seventeenth-century drama, Restoration literature and theatre studies.
An original and beautifully written book on changing perspectives in the art of theater. Through a study of nine plays "Oedipus Rex, Berenice, Tristan und Isolde, Hamlet, Ghosts, The Cherry Orchard, Six Characters in Search of an Author, Noah, Murder in the Cathedral" the author shows how all playwrights seek to hold the mirror up to nature and how in this respect the art of drama is always the same, varying only with the philosophical and aesthetic concepts of each age. "The Idea of a Theater" will delight both readers with a special interest in drama and those who read drama as a source of insight into man s nature and man s changing ideas of himself.
