Drama

  • Tragedy and Trauma in the Plays of Christopher Marloweby Dr Mathew R Martin; Dr Helen Ostovich

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2015; US$ 104.95

    Contending that criticism of Marlowe?s plays has been limited by humanist conceptions of tragedy, this book engages with trauma theory, especially psychoanalytic trauma theory, to offer a fresh critical perspective within which to make sense of the tension in Marlowe?s plays between the tragic and the traumatic. The author argues that tragedies are... more...

  • Ibsenby Janko Lavrin

    Taylor and Francis 2015; US$ 44.95

    This book, first published in 1950, could best be described as a combination of literary, psychological and social criticism. Considerable space is allotted to the personal inner drama of Ibsen, which provides not only a clue to his art but shows how most of his themes inevitably grew out of the other. The author also explores some of those factors... more...

    Taylor and Francis 2015; US$ 44.95

  • The Celebrated Hannah Cowleyby Angela Escott

    Taylor and Francis 2015; US$ 99.00

    Hannah Cowley (1743?1809) was a very successful dramatist, and something of an eighteenth-century celebrity.

This is the first substantial monograph study to examine Cowley?s life and work. more...

  • Victorian Dramatic Criticismby George Rowell

    Taylor and Francis 2015; US$ 155.00

    Originally published in 1971. The Victorian Age was one of popular theatre and increasingly popular journalism. One manifestation of this journalism was the emergence of the dramatic critic from the anonymity and brevity which had previously characterized periodical treatment of the theatre. If Victorian theatre is regarded as existing essentially... more...

  • Postdramatikby Hanna Klessinger

    De Gruyter 2015; US$ 126.00

    This study investigates the history of post-dramatic literature between 1966 and 1995. It reveals the ways that post-dramatic writing styles lent themselves productively to international modern theater, continued to develop dynamically, and came to form a tradition of its own. Extensive reviews of post-dramatic trends and forms are interspersed... more...

  • Euripides and the Politics of Formby Victoria Wohl

    Princeton University Press 2015; US$ 39.95

    How can we make sense of the innovative structure of Euripidean drama? And what political role did tragedy play in the democracy of classical Athens? These questions are usually considered to be mutually exclusive, but this book shows that they can only be properly answered together. Providing a new approach to the aesthetics and politics of Greek... more...

    Palgrave Macmillan 2015; US$ 90.00

    This book examines the dramatic work of Dickens, Browning, Collins, and Tennyson, their interaction with the theatrical world, and their attempts to develop their reputations as playwrights. These major Victorian writers each authored several professional plays, but why has their achievement been overlooked? more...
