SHAKESPEARE FOR THE MODERN READER Presented by John Burfeind Twelfth Night is a riotous romp on the sun-drenched shores of the Mediterranean Sea. Beautiful Olivia, plucky Viola, and maudlin Orsino clumsily romance one another, while steering clear of the inebriated prankster Sir Toby Belch and his idiotic comrade-in-arms Sir Andrew Aguecheek. When Viola's twin brother unexpectedly shows up in the midst of one of Sir Toby's booze-fueled practical jokes, confusion and laughs abound! Familiarity with the plays of William Shakespeare has long been a sign of cultural literacy. For centuries, refined readers and theatergoers worldwide have savored the beauty of his poetry and drama. For the first time in 400 years, the meaning of his plays is accessible to the general public in Shakespeare For The Modern Reader. This unique new presentation allows the reader to enjoy a Shakespearean play in its original language with complete comprehension. Grab this book, set aside a few hours on a weekend, and have a wonderful time with the greatest writer in history!

Why did theatre audiences laugh in Shakespeare's day? Why do they still laugh now? What did Shakespeare do with the conventions of comedy that he inherited, so that his plays continue to amuse and move audiences? What do his comedies have to say about love, sex, gender, power, family, community, and class? What place have pain, cruelty, and even death in a comedy? Why all those puns? In a survey that travels from Shakespeare's earliest experiments in farce and courtly love-stories to the great romantic comedies of his middle years and the mould-breaking experiments of his last decade's work, this book addresses these vital questions. Organised thematically, and covering all Shakespeare's comedies from the beginning to the end of his career, it provides readers with a map of the playwright's comic styles, showing how he built on comedic conventions as he further enriched the possibilities of the genre.

Recovering Ruth

Authors: Robert L. Root
Categories: Literary Criticism
Type: BOOK - Published: 2003-01-01 - Publisher: U of Nebraska Press

The task of editing and annotating a nineteenth-century diary seemed straightforward at first, but as Robert Root assembled scattered fragments of lost history and immersed himself in background research, he became enmeshed in unexpected ways. When doubts arose about who really wrote the journal, Root found himself plunged into a mystery of lost identity, drawn ever deeper into the drama and complexity of forgotten lives and engaged in a quest at times both compulsive and quixotic. Part memoir, part meditation on the nature of biography, Recovering Ruth is the absorbing story of recovering a hidden past?and of learning firsthand the complications of intimacy that develop between a biographer and his subject.
Shakespeare's Theory of Drama
Language: en
Pages: 232
Authors: Pauline Kiernan
Categories: Drama
Type: BOOK - Published: 1998-07-23 - Publisher: Cambridge University Press

Why did Shakespeare write drama? Did he have specific reasons for his choice of this art form? Did he have clearly defined aesthetic aims in what he wanted drama to do - and why? Pauline Kiernan opens up a new area of debate for Shakespearean criticism in showing that a radical, complex defence of drama which challenged the Renaissance orthodox view of poetry, history and art can be traced in Shakespeare's plays and poems. This study, first published in 1996, examines different stages in the canon to show that far from being restricted by the 'limitations' of drama, Shakespeare consciously exploits its capacity to accommodate temporality and change, and its reliance on the physical presence of the actor. This lively, readable book offers an original and scholarly insight into what Shakespeare wanted his drama to do and why.
