Description : The essays in Talking Drama ask what the relation is between drama and its critics. In so far as we conceive of drama and theatre as arising from and providing some sense of social ritual and comment, drama is itself a critical genre, showing up the foibles and problems of human existence as well as the general hubris and errors of society. Plays both constitute criticism--of society, of ideas, of other plays--and deploy such self-critical gambits as plays within plays, characters who watch other characters, characters feigning roles and personalities, and even the overt inclusion of characters who are critics. Plays, thus, comment both on themselves and on the art of theatre generally. At the same time, drama implies other kinds of critics in the guise of the audience, reviewers, and those who might participate in its ideas. Just as plays produce the seeds of their own critique, so they also spur critique of their aesthetics, the artistry of their performance, and the ideas and conflicts they illustrate. Critics who review play performances are as much an intrinsic part of theatrical events as the audience and the plays themselves.

Description : Talking Is a Gift is the only comprehensive book about communication and public speaking written from a Christian perspective by women and for women -- an unmatched source for Christian women enrolled in academic programs, leading in local churches, or serving in itinerant speaking/teaching ministries. This distinctive text from experienced authors Rhonda Harrington Kelley and Monica Rose Brennan offers essential skills for women in personal life and varied ministry contexts. And as the title suggests, the content of the book supports the premise that talking is simply a talent when used for personal pleasure, but it is a spiritual gift when used to minister to others. Kelley and Brennan divide the book into three parts: interpersonal communication, verbal communication, and nonverbal communication. Specific chapters cover issues including audience and outline, research and supportive material, anxiety and fear, delivery and details, and more. Discussion questions for each chapter, informational charts, and a glossary of terms are also featured.

Description : 'This book is special. It proposes a style of drama that liberates teachers and children from traditional dialogues...The dramas, each linked to a literacy text or wider theme, are amazing...I would recommend buying this. It challenges, but rewards with a new level of classroom dialogue' - Literacy Time 'This new book for teachers is timely and full of good ideas.

Description : This book investigates four modern plays, Harold Pinter's The Homecoming, Arnold Wesker's Roots, Terence Rattigan's In Praise of Love, and Alan Ayckbourn's Just Between Ourselves, and shows how the dialogue of each 'works' with respect to ordinary conversation. By considering both linguistic and literary perspectives, this work extends the boundaries of traditional criticism and demonstrates how the linguistic study of talk can contribute to our understanding of drama dialogue.

Description : First published in 1973, this book is about Shakespeare, language and drama. The first part introduces some common ideas of anthropology and linguistics into an area where they serve as a base for the discussion of usually literary matters. It attempts to link language to our experience of speech — examining its range, texture, and social functions. In part two, the author argues that in Elizabethan culture there was a greater investment in the complexities and demands of speech due to the widespread illiteracy of the time. It examines eight of Shakespeare’s plays, together with one of Ben Jonson’s, in light of their concern with various aspects of the role of spoken language in society.
