Drama

  • Dark Prismsby Robert Lima

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 30.00

    The mythological, folkloric, and religious beliefs of Western culture have resulted in a long and ongoing history of esoteric themes in theatre from the Middle Ages to the present in Spain and the America. Now Robert Lima, a noted comparatist, brings to bear on this material his wide knowledge of the world of the occult. Lima defines the terms "occult"... more...

  • Beyond Tragedyby Robert W. Uphaus

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    In this compact, yet comprehensive exploration of Shakespeare's romances, Robert W. Uphaus suggests that the romances bring us to a realm of human and dramatic experience that is "beyond tragedy." The inexorable movement of tragedy toward death and a final close is absorbed in romance by a further movement in which death can lead to renewed life,... more...

  • The High Designby George C. Herndl

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    This book, winner of the 1969 South Atlantic Modern Language Association Award, presents a new perspective in the criticism of Jacobean tragedy and a truer evaluation of this body of drama. Mr. Herndl reinterprets a number of important Jacobean plays, making clear their essential spirit and the world view from which it rises. Herndl demonstrates the... more...

  • The History of Southern Dramaby Charles S. Watson

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 30.00

    Mention southern drama at a cocktail party or in an American literature survey, and you may hear cries for "Stella!" or laments for "gentleman callers." Yet southern drama depends on much more than a menagerie of highly strung spinsters and steel magnolias. Charles Watson explores this field from its eighteenth- and nineteenth-century roots through... more...

  • Magic in the Webby Robert B. Heilman

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    In his earlier work on King Lear , Mr. Heilman combined a number of critical procedures to form a new and important approach to Shakespearian criticism. His study of Othello displays the maturity of insight and skill in analysis the years have brought him in developing his critical method. Mr. Heilman takes account of stage effects; he traces... more...

  • Shakespeare and the Uses of Comedyby Jr. J. A. Bryant

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    In Shakespeare's hand the comic mode became an instrument for exploring the broad territory of the human situation, including much that had normally been reserved for tragedy. Once the reader recognizes that justification for such an assumption is presented repeatedly in the earlier comedies -- from The Comedy of Errors to Twelfth Night -- he... more...

  • The Festive Play of Fernando Arrabalby Luis Oscar Arata

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    Along with Samuel Beckett and Eugene Ionesco, Fernando Arrabal is a major exponent of the Theater of the Absurd. In this study Arrabal's plays are seen as a contemporary expression of a festive form of theater that flourished during the Middle Ages and that had its roots in the drama of Aeschylus and Aristophanes. With this view of Arrabal's work,... more...

  • Hippolyta's Viewby Jr. J. A. Bryant

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    Scholars have already demonstrated that Shakespeare 's language abounds in Biblical allusions and references, but Mr. Bryant now undertakes to show us how such details may bear on the full meaning of the plays. Seeking to interpret Shakespeare's plays as Christian poetry, Mr. Bryant has developed in this significant work a new critical approach which... more...

  • The New Dramatists of Mexico 1967--1985by Ronald D. Burgess

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    In 1976 a dozen hopeful young Mexican dramatists -- most of them studying with Emilio Carballido -- began staging plays, primarily in small, out-of-the-way theater, and publishing them, mostly in university magazines with limited distribution. Until now, more than twenty years later, there has been no comprehensive study devoted either to this original... more...

  • Professional Playwrightsby Ira Clark

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    The most neglected of the English Renaissance playwrights are the major Carolines -- Philip Massinger, John Ford, James Shirley, and Richard Brome. Writing in the 1620s and 1630s, always in the shadow of their great precursors, Shakespeare and Jonson, they have often been dubbed mere purveyors of slick, escapist sensationalism who avoided the great... more...
