Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In this volume, Kathleen Jeffs draws on first-hand experience of the Royal Shakespeare Company's rehearsal room for the 2004-05 Spanish Golden Age season to put forth a collaborative model for translating, rehearsing, and performing Spanish Golden Age drama. Building on the RSC season, the volume offers methodologies for translation and communication that can feed the creative processes of actors and directors, while maintaining an ethos of fidelity with regards to the original texts. It argues that collaboration between academics and theatre practitioners was instrumental in the success of the season and that the work carried out has repercussions for critical debate of Comedia. The volume posits a model for future productions of the Comedia in English, one that recognizes the need for the languages of the scholar and the theatre artist to be made mutually intelligible by the use of collaborative strategies, mediated by a consultant or dramaturg proficient in both tongues. This model applies more generally to theatrical collaborations involving a translator, writer and director, and will be useful for translation and performance processes in any language.

This book was released on 2020-12-30 with total page 156 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Das Jahr 1918 bedeutete mit Werken wie dem "Krämerspiegel" und den Brentano-Gesängen einen Höhepunkt im Liedschaffen von Richard Strauss. Der Umbruch Europas am Ende des Ersten Weltkriegs nahm aber auch Einfluss auf das Selbstverständnis des Komponisten in Kunst und Leben als "griechischer Germane". Das Jahrbuch 2018 enthält einen aufschlussreichen Artikel über die Geschäftstüchtigkeit des Musikers im Umgang mit seinem Verlag Bote & Bock sowie in einem weiteren Aufsatz philologische Evidenz zu den Spuren griechischer Mythologie in seinen "Antike-Opern" (Hofmannsthal, Gregor). Der Briefwechsel zwischen Ferruccio Busoni und Stefan Zweig beleuchtet den biographischen und literarischen Horizont Zweigs, des von Strauss hochgeschätzten Librettisten der "Schweigsamen Frau". Beiträge zu einem vermeintlichen Jugendwerk des Komponisten und zur Bedeutung der Sopranistin Leonie Rysanek als Strauss-Interpretin sowie einige Miszellen, Rezensionen und Berichte runden den Band ab.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In this book Ron Austin recounts the "three acts" of his remarkable life. Act I finds him in Hollywood, in love with his young wife -- and with show business. As he becomes a successful screenwriter and TV producer, he works with a galaxy of stars, from Charlie Chaplin to the cast of Charlie's Angels. In Act II Austin grapples with the ups and downs of his career and sets out on a new spiritual path: at the age of fifty, with the support of his Jewish wife, he converts from atheism to the Catholic faith. In Act III he explores his deepest concern -- how Jews and Catholics can find common ground. Star-Crossed offers a candid, compelling look at Austin's wide-ranging life journey, as rich with stories about Hollywood's golden past as it is with ideas about how Christians and Jews can build an enduring relationship in the future.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Don Quixote de la Mancha (1605) is one of the classic texts of Western literature and the foundation of European fiction. Yet Cervantes himself remains an enigmatic figure. The Cambridge Companion to Cervantes offers a comprehensive treatment of Cervantes life and work, including his lesser known writing. The essays, by some of the most outstanding scholars in the field, cover the historical and political context of Cervantes writing, his place in Renaissance culture, and the role of his masterpiece, Don Quixote, in the formation of the modern novel. They draw on contemporary critical perspectives to shed new light on Cervantes work, including the Exemplary Novels , the plays and dramatic interludes, and the long romances, Galatea and Persiles. The volume provides useful supporting material for students; suggestions for further reading, a detailed chronology, a complete list of his published writings, an overview of translations and editions, and a guide to electronic resources.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In the first in-depth study of the interconnected relationships among public theatre, custodial institutions, and women in early modern Spain, Margaret E. Boyle explores the contradictory practices of rehabilitation enacted by women both on and off stage. Pairing historical narratives and archival records with canonical and non-canonical theatrical representations of women's deviance and rehabilitation, Unruly Women argues that women's performances of penitence and punishment should be considered a significant factor in early modern Spanish life. Boyle considers both real-life sites of rehabilitation for women in seventeenth-century Madrid, including a jail and a magdalen house, and women onstage, where she identifies three distinct representations of female deviance: the widow, the vixen, and the murderess. Unruly Women explores these archetypal figures in order to demonstrate the ways a variety of playwrights comment on women's non-normative relationships to the topics of marriage, sex, and violence.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The 16th and 17th centuries were the most fruitful periods for Spanish literature. The Golden Age of Spanish drama extends from the close of the 15th century to the death of Calderon in 1681. During that time, Spanish playwrights looked to Italy for inspiration, but from the beginning they sought to avoid slavish imitation of classical and Italian drama. Instead, these playwrights attempted to give Spanish drama its own identity. This reference includes alphabetically arranged essays for 19 of the most important Spanish dramatists of the Golden Age. Each essay provides extensive biographical information, a critical discussion of the playwright's dramatic production, a critical analysis of one major play, and a bibliography of primary and secondary sources. The volume closes with a selected general bibliography on the most important drama of this period.

Book excerpt: Donnell engages gender theory and cultural studies in order to shed light on cross-dressing- a common though poorly understood practice- in plays performed in Spain and Colonial Spanish America during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. The author shows how certain naturalized assumptions about masculinity and femininity are unmasked through the cross-dressed performance of works attributed to Lope de Rueda, Morales, Lope de Vega, Monroy y Silva, and Calderon.

This book was released on 2016-11-03 with total page 158 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Drawing from early modern plays and treatises on the precepts and practices of the acting process, this study shows how the early modern Spanish actress subscribed to various somatic practices in an effort to prepare for a role. It provides today's reader not only another perspective to the performance aspect of early modern plays, but also a better understanding of how the woman of the theater succeeded in a highly scrutinized profession. Elizabeth Marie Cruz Petersen examines examples of comedias from playwrights such as Lope de Vega, Luis Vélez de Guevara, Tirso de Molina, and Ana Caro, historical documents, and treatises to demonstrate that the women of the stage transformed their bodies and their social and cultural environment in order to succeed in early modern Spanish theater. Women's Somatic Training in Early Modern Spanish Theater is the first full-length, in-depth study of women actors in seventeenth-century Spain. Unique in the field of comedia studies, it approaches the topic from a performance perspective, using somaesthetics as a tool to explain how an artist's lived experiences and emotions unite in the interpretation of art, reconfiguring her "self" via the transformation of habit.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Plot Twists and Critical Turns: Queer Approaches to Early Modern Spanish Theater offers readings of a variety of works of seventeenth-century Spanish theater from perspectives grounded in queer studies, and demonstrates that these plays, even given the limitations imposed by censorship, public taste, and their own conventional precepts, are shot through with gaps that allow one to perceive at least the outlines of an absent queer object if not overt examples of manifest challenges to gender conformity.
