Shakespeare World Views

by Heather Kerr, Shakespeare World Views Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Shakespeare World Views books, "Shakespeare: World Views comprises fifteen papers concerned with the politics of reading and performance in Autralasia, Asia, and Europe." "The attention to the history and politics of Shakespeare in performance is matched by an interest in the uses and inscriptions of Shakespeare from postcolonial and new European locations." "Two very different essays plot Shakespeare's investments in equally different cartographies: the unsettled and unsettling geographies of the Comedies and the patriarchal territories of Lucrece's Tragedy." "Taken together, these essays from widely differing geographic, political, and critical locations attest to the multiplicity of "Shakespeares" available today. This very multiplicity suggests that Shakespeare is being produced as both local and global, paradoxically fragmented and monolithic, a fertile site both for affinity and contest. The effect is a challenge to any easy claim for Shakespeare's unproblematic status as a stable indicator of cultural value. In Singh's words, this collection manifests the "anomalies and contradictions" as well as the rich variety of "Shakespeares" around the world."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Shakespeare S Auditory Worlds

by Laury Magnus, Shakespeare S Auditory Worlds Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Shakespeare S Auditory Worlds books, Inspired by the verbal exuberance and richness of all that can be heard by audiences both on and off Shakespeare’s stages, Shakespeare’s Auditory Worlds examines such special listening situations as overhearing, eavesdropping, and asides. It breaks new ground by exploring the complex relationships between sound and sight, dialogue and blocking, dialects and other languages, re-voicings, and, finally, nonverbal or metaverbal relationships inherent in noise, sounds, and music, staging interstices that have been largely overlooked in the critical literature on aurality in Shakespeare. Its contributors include David Bevington, Ralph Alan Cohen, Steve Urkowitz, and Leslie Dunn, and, in a concluding “Virtual Roundtable” section, six seasoned repertory actors of the American Shakespeare Center as well, who discuss their nuanced hearing experiences on stage. Their “hearing” invites us to understand the multiple dimensions of Shakespeare’s auditory world from the vantage point of actors who are listening “in the round” to what they hear from their onstage interlocutors, from offstage and backstage cues, from the musicians’ galleries, and often most interestingly, from their audiences.

Blind Spots Of Knowledge In Shakespeare And His World

by Subha Mukherji, Blind Spots Of Knowledge In Shakespeare And His World Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Blind Spots Of Knowledge In Shakespeare And His World books, A "blind spot" suggests an obstructed view, or partisan perception, or a localized lack of understanding. Just as the brain "reads" the "blind spot" of the visual field by a curious process of readjustment, Shakespearean drama disorients us with moments of unmastered and unmasterable knowledge, recasting the way we see, know and think about knowing. Focusing on such moments of apparent obscurity, this volume puts methods and motives of knowing under the spotlight, and responds both to inscribed acts of blind-sighting, and to the text or action blind-sighting the reader or spectator. While tracing the hermeneutic yield of such occlusion is its main conceptual aim, it also embodies a methodological innovation: structured as an internal dialogue, it aims to capture, and stake out a place for, a processive intellectual energy that enables a distinctive way of knowing in academic life; and to translate a sense of intellectual "community" into print.

World Wide Shakespeares

by Sonia Massai, World Wide Shakespeares Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download World Wide Shakespeares books, Drawing on debates around the global/local dimensions of cultural production, an international team of contributors explore the appropriation of Shakespeare’s plays in film and performance around the world. In particular, the book examines the ways in which adapters and directors have put Shakespeare into dialogue with local traditions and contexts. The contributors look in turn at ‘local’ Shakespeares for local, national and international audiences, covering a range of English and foreign appropriations that challenge geographical and cultural oppositions between ‘centre’ and ‘periphery’, and ‘big-time’ and ‘small-time’ Shakespeares. Responding to a surge of critical interest in the poetics and politics of appropriation, World-Wide Shakespeares is a valuable resource for those interested in the afterlife of Shakespeare in film and performance globally.

The Comedies Of William Shakespeare

by Britannica Educational Publishing, The Comedies Of William Shakespeare Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Comedies Of William Shakespeare books, In Shakespeare’s time, the term “comedy” did not necessarily denote something funny or amusing. Rather, through such plays such as A Midsummer Night’s Dream and The Merchant of Venice, the playwright examines other defining characteristics of comedic drama—the social interactions of common folks and a focus on the contradictions inherent in everyday life. Readers explore the major themes of Shakespearean comedies, which have enchanted readers and theater-goers alike for centuries.
