Описание: This innovative edition offers modernized texts not only of the 1599 quarto but also of the short, or `bad`, quarto of 1597, regarding each as witness to a `mobile text` which changed in composition as Shakespeare wrote it and which has continued to evolve throughout its richly varied history, both in the theatre and in film, television, opera, and ballet. The more familiar 1599 text is accompanied by a detailed explanatory commentary. The Introduction traces theRomeo and Juliet narrative from its origins in myth through its adaptation in the novella, and shows how Shakespeare`s transmutation of the story reflects contemporary concerns with love, death, adolescence, and patriarchism.

Автор: Shakespeare Название: A Midsummer Night`s Dream ISBN: 0199535868 ISBN-13(EAN): 9780199535866 Издательство: Oxford Academ Рейтинг: Цена: от 497 р. Наличие на складе: Есть
Описание: A Midsummer Night`s Dream is perhaps the best loved of Shakespeare`s plays. It brings together aristocrats, workers, and fairies in a wood outside Athens, and from there the enchantment begins. In the introduction to this edition, Peter Holland pays particular attention to dreams and dreamers, and to Shakespeare`s construction of a world of night and shadows. Both here and in his commentary he explores the play`s extensive performance history to illustrate the wide range of interpretations of which it is capable.

The series features line-by-line commentaries and textual notes on the plays and poems. Introductions are regularly refreshed with accounts of new critical, stage and screen interpretations.

Building on the full and well-illustrated stage history compiled by Sanders, McMillin focuses on political, feminist and postcolonial treatments of Othello in various parts of the world and discusses important performances on stage, film and television. Sanders' discussion of the stylistic and racial problems facing modern readers and spectators is complemented by McMillin who explores the influence of new historicism and cultural materialism and the issue of black/white casting of the main characters.
Автор: Shakespeare Название: Anthony and Cleopatra ISBN: 0199535787 ISBN-13(EAN): 9780199535781 Издательство: Oxford Academ Рейтинг: Цена: от 539 р. Наличие на складе: Есть
Описание: In its towering central characters, vast geographical and historical sweep, and its variety of style and mood, Anthony and Cleopatra is perhaps the most ambitious of Shakespeare`s designs. Yet the degree and nature of its success remain surprisingly contentious, and performances of the play have seldom matched the extravagant expectations of its admirers. Michael Neill`s wide-ranging introduction from a number of angles, including those of gender and race. He examines the sources and discusses the theatrical challenge presented by Shakespeare`s technique, with its extraordinary tensions between rhetoric and action. A full stage history further illustrates its theatrical fortunes; both here and in the extensive commentary this edition illuminates the play`s theatrical dimensions as well as the rich complexity of its poeticlanguage.
Автор: Shakespeare Название: Hamlet ISBN: 0199535817 ISBN-13(EAN): 9780199535811 Издательство: Oxford Academ Рейтинг: Цена: от 497 р. Наличие на складе: Есть (1 шт.) Описание: Hamlet`s combination of violence and introspection is unusual among Shakespeare`s tragedies. It is also full of curious riddles and fascinating paradoxes, making it one of his most widely discussed plays. Professor Hibbard`s illuminating and original introduction explains the process by which variant texts were fused together in the eighteenth century to create the most commonly used text of today. Drawing on both critical and theatrical history, he shows how this fusion makes Hamlet seem a much more `problematic` play than it was when it originally appeared in the First Folio of 1623. The Oxford Shakespeare edition presents a radically new text, based on that First Folio, which printed Shakespeare`s own revision of an earlier version. The result is a `theatrical` and highly practical edition for students and performers alike.
