23 editions published between 2004 and 2007 in English and German and held by 749 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Disordered heroes in opera : a psychiatric report by John Cordingly( )

8 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 426 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Opera depicts extreme emotional states. Taking a novel and challenging approach that combines scientific diagnostic approaches with literary and musical analysis, John Cordingly examines the disordered personalities of twelve male operatic protagonists. On the one hand, he gathers together varied historical opinions on the contentious concept of personality disorder. On the other hand, he assesses operatic protagonists through music, words and performance, as well as through source material and in some cases the biographies of the works' creators. He does not view his protagonists as 'mad'. But are they bad, or are they Byronic heroes, he asks? Should they be punished or are they in need of treatment? And what is their sexuality? From the hubristic Otello and Boris Godunov to the psychopathic Iago and John Claggart; from the schizoid Wozzeck and Peter Grimes to the borderline Werther and Herman; from the narcissistic Don Giovanni and Eugene Onegin to the repressed and melancholic Faust and Gustav von Aschenbach, Cordingly places human nature under the psychiatric spotlight. In their diversity and complexity, he shows how these men reflect timeless aspects of us all

Operas of Benjamin Britten, The by Claire Seymour( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The delicate balance between private and public communication, and the tension between art as self-expression and art as moral resolution were key concerns in Britten's music. Seymour examines ways in which Britten's operas explored and articulated the inherent ambiguity and latent sexuality of music, particularly song, and suggests that Britten's operas may illustrate his search for a public 'voice' which would embody, communicate, and, perhaps, resolve his private beliefs and anxieties. Analyses of Britten's operas from ""Paul Bunyan"" to ""Death in Venice"", the three Church Parables, and s
The turn of the screw and, the aspern papers by Henry James( Book )

3 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In these two chilling stories, Henry James shows himself to be a master of haunting atmosphere and unbearable tension. The Turn of the Screw tells of a young governess sent to a country home to take charge of two orphans, Miles and Flora. Unsettled by a sense of intense evil within the house, she soon becomes obsessed with the belief that malevolent forces are stalking the children in her care. Obsession of a more worldly variety lies at the heart of The Aspern Papers, the tale of a literary historian determined to get his hands on some letters written by a great poet-and prepared to use trickery and deception to achieve his aims
