Description : This new edition of Sally Ledger's study on Henrik Ibsen includes a renewed bibliography and an expanded critical evaluation. It delivers readings of ten of Ibsen's best-known plays including A Doll's House, Ghosts, An Enemy of the People and Hedda Gabler. It also survey's Ibsen's total dramatic output, carefully situating his plays in his cultural, historical and intellectual contexts. Ibsen played a seminal role in the development of modern European drama at the end of the 19th century. Eschewing the comedies and melodramas of the mainstream theatre of his day, he is best known for his invention of theatrical realism and psychological drama. Ledger's book traces the theatrical evolution of his plays as well as considering his impact on late-Victorian London, his response to the 'woman question', his anticipation of Freudian psychology and his debt to Darwinism.

Description : The object of this study, first published in 1980, is to dispel the view that James Joyce had no political views. Although not a political novelist like D. H. Lawrence or Joseph Conrad, political issues and discussions are central to Joyce’s major novels. This title links that political content with Joyce’s own views, and examines the evolution of those views and attitudes. A number of unusual and fascinating sources for Joyce’s thought are uncovered. Joyce’s Politics is thus a thorough review of a neglected aspect of Joyce and his writings, and will be of interest to students of literature.

Description : The riveting story of the rivalry between the two most renowned actresses of the nineteenth century: legendary Sarah Bernhardt, whose eccentricity on and off the stage made her the original diva, and mystical Eleonora Duse, who broke all the rules to popularize the natural style of acting we celebrate today. Audiences across Europe and the Americas clamored to see the divine Sarah Bernhardt swoon—and she gave them their money’s worth. The world’s first superstar, she traveled with a chimpanzee named Darwin and a pet alligator that drank champagne, shamelessly supplementing her income by endorsing everything from aperitifs to beef bouillon, and spreading rumors that she slept in a coffin to better understand the macabre heroines she played. Eleonora Duse shied away from the spotlight. Born to a penniless family of itinerant troubadours, she disappeared into the characters she portrayed—channeling their spirits, she claimed. Her new, empathetic style of acting revolutionized the theater—and earned her the ire of Sarah Bernhardt in what would become the most tumultuous theatrical showdown of the nineteenth century. Bernhardt and Duse seduced each other’s lovers, stole one another’s favorite playwrights, and took to the world’s stages to outperform their rival in her most iconic roles. A scandalous, enormously entertaining history full of high drama and low blows, Playing to the Gods is the perfect “book for all of us who binge-watched Feud” (Daniel de Visé, author of Andy & Don: The Making of a Friendship and a Classic American TV Show).

Description : Re-Dressing the Canon examines the relationship between gender and performance in a series of essays which combine the critique of specific live performances with an astute theoretical analysis. Alisa Solomon discusses both canonical texts and contemporary productions in a lively jargon-free style. Among the dramatic texts considered are those of Aristophanes, Ibsen, Yiddish theatre, Mabou Mines, Deborah Warner, Shakespeare, Brecht, Split Britches, Ridiculous Theatre, and Tony Kushner. Bringing to bear theories of 'gender performativity' upon theatrical events, the author explores: * the 'double disguise' of cross-dressed boy-actresses * how gender relates to genre (particularly in Ibsens' realism) * how canonical theatre represented gender in ways which maintain traditional images of masculinity and femininity.

Description : Charles Dickens died in 1870, the same year in which universal elementary education was introduced. During the following generation a mass reading public emerged, and the term "best-seller" was coined. In new and cheap editions Dickens's stories sold hugely, but these were progressively outstripped in quantity by the likes of Hall Caine and Marie Corelli, Charles Garvice and Nat Gould. Who has now heard of these writers? Yet Hall Caine, for one, boasted of having made more money from his pen than any previous author. This book presents a panoramic view of literary life in Britain over half a century from 1870 to 1914, teasing out authors' relations with the reading public and tracing how reputations were made and unmade. It surveys readers' habits, the book trade, popular literary magazines and the role of reviewers, and examines the construction of a classical canon by critics concerned about the supposed corruption of popular taste. Certain writers were elevated as national heroes, yet Britain drew its writers from abroad as well as from home. Authors became stars and celebrities, and a literary tourism grew around their haunts. They advertised products from cigarettes to toothpaste; they were fashion-conscious and promoted themselves via profiles, interviews, and carefully posed photographs; they went on lecture tours to America; and their names were pushed by a new professional breed: the literary agent. Some angled for knighthoods, even peerages, and cut a figure in high society and London clubland. The debated public issues of the day and campaigned on all manner of things from questions of faith and women's rights to censorship and conscription. During the Great War they penned propaganda. Meanwhile the cinema was developing to challenge the supremacy of the written word over the imagination. Authors took to that too, as an opportunity for new adventure. Writers, Readers, and Reputations is richly entertaining and informative, amounting to a collective biography of a generation of writers and their world.

Description : The Cambridge History of Modernism is the first comprehensive history of modernism in the distinguished Cambridge Histories collection. It identifies a distinctive temperament of 'modernism' within the 'modern' period, establishing the circumstances of modernized life as the ground and warrant for an art that becomes 'modernist' by virtue of its demonstrably self-conscious involvement in this modern condition. Following this sensibility from the end of the nineteenth century to the middle of the twentieth, tracking its manifestations across pan-European and transatlantic locations, the forty-three chapters offer a remarkable combination of breadth and focus. Prominent scholars of modernism provide analytical narratives of its literature, music, visual arts, architecture, philosophy, and science, offering circumstantial accounts of its diverse personnel in their many settings. These historically informed readings offer definitive accounts of the major work of twentieth-century cultural history and provide a new cornerstone for the study of modernism in the current century.

Description : Irish Women Playwrights 1900-1939 is the first book to examine the plays of five fascinating and creative women, placing their work for theatre in co-relation to suggest a parallel tradition that reframes the development of Irish theatre into the present day. How these playwrights dramatize violence and its impacts in political, social, and personal life is a central concern of this book. Augusta Gregory, Eva Gore-Booth, Dorothy Macardle, Mary Manning, and Teresa Deevy re-model theatrical form, re-structuring action and narrative, and exploring closure as a way of disrupting audience expectation. Their plays create stage spaces and images that expose relationships of power and authority, and invite the audience to see the performance not as illusion, but as framed by the conventions and limits of theatrical representation. Irish Women Playwrights 1900-1939 is suitable for courses in Irish theatre, women in theatre, gender and performance, dramaturgy, and Irish drama in the twentieth century as well as for those interested in women's work in theatre and in Irish theatre in the twentieth century.

Description : Henrik Ibsen is one of the most influential foreign writers in 20th century China. In the century review of Chinese Ibsenism, He Chengzhou explores Chinese â??Noraismâ? in the context of the Chinese reception of Ibsen as a realist, a romantic and a symbolist, and analyses this dramatic phenomenon from historical, cultural and literary perspectives. It also initiates the study of the Chinese relay translations of Ibsen by comparing them with the Norwegian original. No foreign writer contributed as much to the rise of modern Chinese drama as Ibsen did. In this book He Chengzhou demonstrates that Ibsenâ??s influence on modern Chinese drama underwent three important stages: from Chinese â??problem dramaâ? to Tian Hanâ??s early realistic plays and to Cao Yuâ??s great masterpieces. Based on close textual analysis, the author interprets and analyses both the influence and the inter-textual relationships between Ibsenâ??s plays and modern Chinese plays. Among other things, the author offers an unprecedented comparative study of Hedda Gabler and Sunrise. With the establishment of realistic drama in China, Ibsen was integrated into the Chinese dramatic tradition. Ibsenâ??s influence on contemporary Chinese dramatists has come both directly and indirectly via that heritage of Chinese modern drama.
