1590s Drama and Militarism : Portrayals of War in Marlowe, Chapman and Shakespeare's Henry V, Taunton, Dr. Nina
1 Taunton, Dr. Nina
1590s Drama and Militarism : Portrayals of War in Marlowe, Chapman and Shakespeare's Henry V
UK Ashgate Publishing Limited
2001 0754602745 / 9780754602743 First Edition Hardcover Fine Condition 1.9 x 15.2 x 22.2 cm 
239 pages. Front and back cover lightly marked. The premise of this work is that plays about war and the "art of war" literature proliferating in the 1590s intervene in the military realities of the last few years of Elizabeth's reign much more closely than is appreciated. The author seeks to reconstruct the particular anxieties which surround the military events of the 1590s through a significant but usually neglected genre, the treatises and manuals of war, in order to deepen understanding of the plays themselves as staged responses to specific wartime conditions. The study re-evaluates the experience, practices and concepts of war by considering them alongside historical events, prescriptive writings and dramatic representations. Book Description: 1590s Drama and Militarism is a fascinating interdisciplinary study of various textual interventions into the military realities of the late Elizabethan period. Its major strength is its insistence on the discursive nature of militarism, and the author convincingly uses literary and non-literary texts-including manuals and contemporary military correspondence-to reconstruct the particular anxieties which surrounded the military exigencies of the 1590s, a particularly fraught and unstable period of the aging queen's reign. The literature of the 'art of war' has been little studied by literary scholars, despite their richly rhetorical nature. Dr Taunton's analysis thus brings to light a neglected but culturally significant form of Renaissance textuality. In doing so she is able to shed new light on the Renaissance drama, which she shows to have responded sensitively (and sometimes critically) to these textual constructions of actual warfare, and problematised the anxious idealisations of the military manuals. The particular readings of plays here are richly rewarding for the scholar of Renaissance drama-the significance of Henry's nocturnal surveillance of his own camp on the eve of the battle of Agincourt, for example, benefits immeasurably from being contextualised in the light of contemporary theories of encampment. The role of the women in Tamburlaine's camp in Marlowe's plays is also given particular significance when viewed in the light of the contemporary proscriptions regarding the presence of women in camps during the military campaigns in the Low Countries. In this study Dr Taunton makes appropriate (and critically inflected) use of Foucault's theories of surveillance, Lefebvre's theories about the ideological production of social space, and Michel de Certeau's theories of social practice are put to good use in her analysis of military strategy. These theoretical perspectives are usefully combined with highly specific and well-documented historical analyses. : Review: '... interdisciplinary and historically precise... 1590s Drama and Militarism is a welcome addition to the field.' Sixteenth Century Journal 'Taunton writes with persuasive candor and impressive documentation about the confusions found in dramatic and non-dramatic considerations of military procedures and the ways in which they both reflect and influence contemporary military practices. By design, her book raises more questions than it settles. As a result, one emerges from it with an understanding of a significant cultural cause for some of the contradictions and ambiguities in the plays under scrutiny and with a greater appreciation of the instability and the anomalies of military thinking and practices during the final years of Elizabeth's reign.' Renaissance Quarterly '...an extraordinary contribution to what many critics have seen as a neglected area of scholarship...Fascinatingly illustrated...the book is beautifully produced, readable and instructive.' Literature and History : About the Author: Nina Taunton is a lecturer in English at Brunel University. She has published several essays and refereed articles on Renaissance drama, and is co-editor of The Body in Late Medieval and Early Modern Culture (Ashgate, 2000).

164 pages. The 1990s work of six British composers forms the focus of this collection of essays, arising from a conference that took place at University of Surrey Roehampton in February 1999. The composers whose music is discussed are James Dillon, Thomas Adès, Harrison Birtwistle, Jonathan Harvey, Edwin Roxburgh and Sebastian Forbes. Reflecting the aims of the conference, this volume brings together composers and musicologists to discuss significant works from the last decade of the twentieth century, and also some of the wider issues surrounding British music. Arnold Whittall and Julian Johnson provide perspectives on the plurality of contemporary British music. Edwin Roxburgh offers a personal account of 'The Artists' Dilemma', whilst the essays that follow explore aspects of musical form and structure in a variety of works. The second half of the book comprises interviews with most of the composers whose music is discussed in Part I, adding a further dimension to our understanding of the preoccupations of British composition at the end of the twentieth century.

It should appeal strongly to actors, directors, and theatre-goers, as well as to students and teachers of dramatic production, and with luck it will help contribute to a renaissance of Jonsonian stagings."-"Renaissance and Reformation, Robert C. Evans, Auburn University at Montgomery "[T]he book has many strengths and much interest, particularly for those more used to studying Jonson in an academic rather than a dramatic context. Interviews with Simon Russell-Beale, John Nettles, Sam Mendes and Geoffrey Rush point out aspects of Jonson's drama in action that may be lost through simply reading. [I]t generates a new and illuminating perspective on Jonson's technical excellence and imaginative stage-craft in his writing for the theatre.."-Lesley Mickel Size: 24.1 x 16.2 x 2.1 cm. 240 pages.

"Under the patronage of James I and then Charles I, Ben Jonson wrote no less than 28 court masques. Paying particular attention to the antimasque, Lesley Mickel discusses in detail those court entertainments which contributed significantly to the genre's evolution and development. Her approach is innovative in that she examines these works in relation to Jonson's poetry and dramatic works. This reveals some idea of the way in which Jonson perceived the relationship between satire and panegyric, as well as highlighting the related, if oppositional, views of state power which he expresses in the Roman plays and in the masques. This study combines formalist and historicist methodologies to reflect Mickel's view of the antimasques as determined both by their author's poetic and political aims, and by the conditions of their production. She concludes that the antimasques did not completely undermine the assertions of the masque, but rather that they engaged in a dialogue to probe the function of government and how it might be improved."

Beyond the Golden Door: Jewish American Drama and Jewish American Experience (Palgrave Studies in Theatre and Performance History)
UK Palgrave Macmillan
2009 0230619665 / 9780230619661 First Edition Softcover Fine Condition 14 x 1.2 x 21.6 cm 
184 Pages. Book Description: Clifford Odets. Arthur Miller. Paddy Chayefsky. Neil Simon. Jules Feiffer. Wendy Wasserstein. Tony Kushner. These leading American playwrights do not just happen to be Jewish: they are Jewish playwrights. They and other Jewish playwrights have written out of their own experience, for general American audiences, about what it feels like to be twentieth-century American Jews. Beyond the Golden Door is the first book devoted to showing how Jewish playwrights have dramatized the great struggle to balance Old World heritage with New World opportunity - a struggle with implications for all American ethnicities. : Review: 'What a delight to read Julius Novick. He chooses exactly the right plays to focus on, lays out their substance with clarity, and then selects precisely the right quotes from his great predecessors and contemporary scholars in the field to heighten his own astute delvings into this extraordinary wealth of material. Perceptively, he shows you how the plays link to one another to form one of the great chains that make up America's cultural DNA. This is a beautiful and necessary book.' - Michael Feingold, Chief Theatre Critic, The Village Voice 'Novick articulately and knowledgeably demonstrates his own emotional stake in examining drama by American Jews. By linking the works he discusses to his deep personal feelings and values, he seems to be wrestling with the difficult task of trying to preserve a Jewish identity in a secular, multicultural American society...Novick's passion for his subject informs 'Beyond the Golden Door' from beginning to end.' - The Jewish Daily Forward : 'An impressive display of the rich and varied contributions of Jewish playwrights to the American theatrical repertoire. With judiciously chosen examples, Novick demonstrates how, since the early twentieth century, plays about Jews have been moving and delighting audiences while showcasing the evolving challenges of being Jewish in America. This is a fine accounting of a significant component of American culture, a book to be hailed.' - Ellen Schiff, author, From Stereotype to Metaphor: The Jew in Contemporary Drama; editor, Awake& Singing: Six Great American Jewish Plays : 'Julius Novick offers a fascinating study of ethnic identity in America. Though this story is about Jews, about their particular and distinctive story, it speaks to a much broader story about the American mosaic. In a century wracked by interethnic savagery around the world, this book gives some real insight into how and why America is different. Written with the same sparkle and wry wit that has graced Novick's theater reviews over the years, Beyond the Golden Door is an entertaining read as well as a serious contribution to modern scholarship.' - Eileen Blumenthal, Professor of Theater Arts, Rutgers University; author of Puppetry: A World History 'This study of Jewish American drama as it reflects Jewish American experience is the first book on the subject and a brilliant one: comprehensive, insightful, eloquent, and witty - including trenchant analyses of plays by Elmer Rice, Clifford Odets, Arthur Miller, Paddy Chayefsky, Joseph Stein, Alfred Uhry, Donald Margulies, Herb Gardner, and Wendy Wasserstein.' - Jewish Book World : About the Author: JULIUS NOVICK is Emeritus Professor of Drama Studies at Purchase College, USA, and has also taught at Columbia, Harvard, and Julliard.

Brimful of Asia : Negotiating Ethnicity on the UK Music Scene. (Ashgate Popular and Folk Music Series)

"208 Pages. As New. During the 1990s, Asian pop artists began entering the mainstream of the British music industry for the first time. Bands such as Black Star Liner, Cornershop, Fun Da Mental and Voodoo Queens, led those within and without the industry to start asking questions such as what did it mean to be Asian? How did the bands' Asian background affect their music? What did their music say about Asians in Britain? In this book, Rehan Hyder draws on in-depth interviews with musicians from these bands and with critics and record producers, to examine the pressures associated with making music as a young Asian in today's multi-ethnic Britain. As the book reveals, these musicians wish to convey an authentic sense of creativity in their music, while at the same time wanting to assert a positive ethnic identity. Hyder explores these two impulses against the backdrop of a music industry and a society at large that hold a range of confining stereotypes about what it means to be Asian. The experiences of these bands add considerably to the wider debate about the nature of identity in the contemporary world. Contents: Introduction; Negotiating difference: ethnicity and identity in contemporary Britain; Music, culture and identity; Asian influences on pop and rock in the UK; Marketing the exotic: Asian bands and the novelty effect; Politics or pleasure? Asianness and the burden of representation; Old and new identities: music, ethnicity and syncretism; Conclusion: Then and now: Asian bands in the 21st century; Appendices; Discography; Bibliography; Index." "Book Description: Introduction; Negotiating difference: ethnicity and identity in contemporary Britain; Music, culture and identity; Asian influences on pop and rock in the UK; Marketing the exotic: Asian bands and the novelty effect; Politics or pleasure? Asianess and the burden of representation; Old and new identities: music, ethnicity and. : Review: Received the only Special Mention in the 2005 IASPM Book Award 'Read this book as a smartly conceived and adroitly completed rescue mission. Of all Britain's musical artists, Asian bands are the most ensnared and assaulted by journalistic, academic and political cliches. Rehan Hyder cuts his way through all this verbiage to get to the musicians themselves. In Brimful of Asia music is used to make sense of complicated lives and lives are examined to make sense of complicated music. An essential book for cultural and popular music studies alike.' Simon Frith, University of Stirling 'Brimful of Asia is filled to the brim with insight, analysis, and interpretation of some of the most important music being made in the world today. With deft mastery over a broad range of ideas and issues, Rehan Hyder locates the emergence of artists of Asian ancestry on the popular music charts in Britain as part of the global shake-up that is dramatically altering relationships between culture and place in many different ways all around the world. Brimful of Asia has much to say about artists, audiences, and artistry in a tumultuous time of transformation and change.' George Lipsitz, University of California, San Diego; author of Dangerous Crossroads 'I found this an absolutely fascinating book, well-written and well-referenced to writers in the field - not simply the UK. The first section alone (chapters 1-4) provides some essential thinking about identity politics that would be useful to anyone studying ethnicities. Clearly its focus is on the UK and this may suggest that its appeal is limited. However, I would suggest that the issues confronted and discussed are relevant to a much wider-audience as they provide a thoughtful interrogation of the problems confronting young Asian bands that can be usefully applied to comparable research projects. In this case, it is not so much the substance (which is UK-based) but the approach and issues arising that will be useful to scholars and researchers.' Excerpt taken from the jury's report for the 2005 IASPM Book Award , in which the only Special Mention went to Rehan Hyder's 'Brimful of Asia'. '... this excellent book should become one of the standard texts on British popular musicianship at the end of the twentieth century.'

Book Description: Community theatre is an important device for communities to collectively share stories, to participate in political dialogue, and to break down the increasing exclusion of marginalised groups of citizens. It is practised all over the world by growing numbers of people.: Published at the same time as a video of the same name, this is a unique record of these theatre groups in action. Based on van Erven's own travels and experiences working with community theatre groups in six very different countries, this is the first study of their work and the methodological traditions which have developed around the world. : Review: "I know of no other book like it and van Erven is certainly the right person for the job, given his background in political and popular theatre and his geographically extensive research."-Mariellen Sandford, NYU "The tie-in with video broadcast will allow this material to be really useful for educational purposes."-Carol Fisher Sorgenfrei, UCLA "A book along these lines is certainly one that would be welcomed by many professional academic practitioners throughout the world."-Baz Kershaw, University of Bristol : About the Author: Eugene van Erven is Lecturer in Theatre at University College, Utrecht University in The Netherlands.

2007 1845112385 / 9781845112387 First Edition Hardcover New No Dust Jacket 14.2 x 2.3 x 22.2 cm 
Available Now. Book Description: In recent years, reality TV formats have proliferated on television. One of the most significant and controversial strands within this has been the growth of 'real crime TV'. Encapsulating everything from crime appeal shows to reconstruction programmes and actuality footage shows, real crime TV now plays a major role in our television schedules, filling countless hours of air-time every week. "Crime Watching" examines the spectacular growth of real crime TV. Of these programmes, the BBC's "Crimewatch UK" is Britain's best known (in small part due to the tragedy of presenter Jill Dando's death). The book argues that the birth of the BBC's 'Crimewatch UK' in 1984 was a key transitional moment in the emergence, expansion and subsequent popularity of these programmes both in the UK and internationally. Looking closely at the social and political context of the period in which "Crimewatch UK" first appeared and examining the aesthetics, address and appeal of a range of other shows appearing in its wake, including "Police Camera Action!" , "America's Most Wanted" and "World's Wildest Police Videos", this book investigates the conditions that have enabled and advanced the ubiquity of real crime programming on contemporary television and the anxieties that surround it. Examining critiques that real crime TV has increased fear of crime while legitimising a surveillance culture, and that it serves to stifle debate about criminality and policing, "Crime Watching" also reflects on the pleasures of these programmes and the enduring nature of our culture's seemingly endless fascination with real crime stories. : Review: ""Her treatment of the show is breathtakingly encyclopaedic...each avenue of inquiry is almost astonishingly well-informed and confident across a range of fields...A useful resource and impressive piece of scholarship."" - Will Brooker, "Critical Studies in Television" : About the Author: Former New Scotland Yard Press Officer, now Senior Lecturer in Film and TV at Roehampton University.

E.T.A. Hoffmann's Musical Aesthetics, Chantler, Abigail

UK Ashgate Publishing Limited
2006 0754607062 / 9780754607069 First Edition Hardcover New 2.5 x 16.5 x 24.1 cm 
Available Now. Book Description: Whilst E.T.A. Hoffmann (1776-1822) is most widely known as the author of fantastic tales, he was also prolific as a music critic, productive as a composer, and active as a conductor. This book examines Hoffmann's aesthetic thought within the broader context of the history of ideas of the late-eighteenth and early-nineteenth centuries, and explores the relationship between his musical aesthetics and compositional practice. The first three chapters consider his ideas about creativity and aesthetic appreciation in relation to the thought of other German romantic theorists, discussing the central tenets of his musical aesthetic - the idea of a 'religion of art', of the composer as a 'genius', and the listener as a 'passive genius'. In particular the relationship between the multifaceted thought of Hoffmann and Friedrich Schleiermacher is explored, providing some insight into the way in which diverse intellectual traditions converged in early-nineteenth-century Germany. In the second half of the book, Hoffmann's dialectical view of music history and his conception of romantic opera are discussed in relation to his activities as a composer, with reference to his instrumental music and his two mature, large-scale operas, Aurora and Undine. The author also addresses broader issues pertaining to the ideological and historical significance of Hoffmann's musical and literary oeuvre. : Review: 'The book usefully draws together most of the current thinking on Hoffmann... Chantler's strength lies on the level of detailed textual exegesis with reference to Romantic literary theory and philosophy. Here she is commendably thorough.' Music and Letters 'Taken as a whole, Chantler's book probes the reaches of Hoffmann's literary and musical compositions as they pursue poetic ideals while attempting to synthesize the old and new in his artfully-ordered, ironic chaos.'

Each volume explains the background to and the work of one of the major influences on twentieth- and twenty-first-century performance.

"The secular song of the 17th century represents a relatively neglected area of German culture. In this book, Anthony J. Harper first studies the songs of the two great models of the time, Martin Opitz and Paul Fleming, following this with an analysis of the song-books and collections from three regions: the North-East, Central Germany, and the North. The procedure is thus both historical and geographical. The texts of these songs are examined in relation to structural principles, thematic range and stylistic treatment. Harper establishes common features and regional variations of this genre, which involves love-poetry, songs of manners with colourful portrayals of everyday life, and comic songs in a lower stylistic register. Particular attention is paid to the work of Albert and Dach in Konigsberg, Finckelthaus, Schirmer, Krieger and Schoch in Leipzig and Dresden, and Rist, Voigtlander, Zesen, Greflinger and Stieler in the Hamburg region. Where appropriate, the book assesses the role of musical settings, while not seeking to offer technical insights into musical matters. Of value to scholars of German literature, this study should also be of interest to musicologists working on the Renaissance and Baroque periods."
