Court festivals of the European Renaissance : art, politics, and performance by J. R Mulryne( Book )

22 editions published between 2002 and 2017 in English and held by 520 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Festivals were occasions to which Renaissance European courts devoted lavish resources. They marked all manner of state events and were charged with political, economic and cultural significance. The essays in this volume, by an international group of contributors, explore all of these aspects of court festivals and address occasions and topics particular to countries from England to Russia, Italy, France and Germany. They illustrate that festivals resulted both in the creation of high art, as in the work of Rubens, but most often in more emphemeral workmanship. Performances could be magnificent, though they were also fallible and occasionally disastrous. This collection demonstrates that these festivals provide fascinating material for all students of the political and artistic culture of the European Renaissance

The guild and guild buildings of Shakespeare's Stratford : society, religion, school and stage by J. R Mulryne( )

16 editions published between 2011 and 2016 in English and held by 353 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The guild buildings of Shakespeare's Stratford represent a rare instance of a largely unchanged set of buildings which draw together the threads of the town's civic life. With its multi-disciplinary perspectives on this remarkable group of buildings, this volume provides a comprehensive account of the religious, educational, legal, social and theatrical history of Stratford, focusing on the sixteenth century and Tudor Reformation. The essays interweave with one another to provide a map of the complex relationships between the buildings and their history. Opening with an investigation of the Guildhall, which served as the headquarters of the Guild of the Holy Cross until the Tudor Reformation, the book explores the building's function as a centre of local government and community law and as a place of entertainment and education. It is beyond serious doubt that Shakespeare was a school boy here, and the many visits to the Guildhall by professional touring players during the latter half of the sixteenth-century may have prompted his acting and playwriting career. The Guildhall continues to this day to house a school for the education of secondary-level boys. The book considers educational provision during the mid sixteenth century as well as examining the interaction between touring players and the everyday politics and social life of Stratford. At the heart of the volume is archaeological and documentary research which uses up-to-date analysis and new dendrochronological investigations to interpret the buildings and their medieval wall paintings as well as proposing a possible location of the school before it transferred to the Guildhall. Together with extensive archival research into the town's Court of Record which throws light on the commercial and social activities of the period, this rich body of research brings us closer to life as it was lived in Shakespeare's Stratford
Shakespeare and the Japanese stage by Takashi Sasayama( Book )

12 editions published between 1998 and 2010 in English and held by 347 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Shakespeare has been performed in Japan since shortly before the reopening of the country to the West in the Meiji period (1868-1912). This book breaks new ground by studying the interaction of Japanese and Western conceptions of Shakespeare, and the assimilation of Shakespeare into a richly traditional theatre practice." "The book is a collaboration between leading Shakespeare scholars from Japan and the West. The first part deals with key twentieth-century moments in the assimilation of Shakespeare, including the work of world-famous Japanese directors such as Ninagawa, Suzuki and Noda; the second part considers parallels and differences between Japanese and Western theatre over a longer timespan, focusing on the relationship of Shakespeare to traditional Japanese Noh, Kabuki, Bunraku and Kyogen."--Jacket
