Shakespeare, Marlowe, Jonson : new directions in biography by Takashi Kozuka( )

16 editions published between 2006 and 2016 in English and held by 1,141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A remarkable resurgence of interest has taken place over recent years in a biographical approach to the work of early modern poets and dramatists, in particular to the plays and poems of Shakespeare, Marlowe and Jonson. The contributors to this volume approach the topic in a manner that is at once critically and historically alert. They acknowledge that the biographical evidence for all three authors is limited, thus throwing the emphasis acutely on interpretation. In addition to new scholarship, the essays are valuable for their awareness of the challenges posed by recent redirections of criti
Europa triumphans : court and civic festivals in early modern Europe by J. R Mulryne( )

28 editions published between 2004 and 2010 in English and Multiple languages and held by 969 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A landmark in the study of early modern Europe, this two-volume collection makes available for the first time a selection of the most important texts from court and civic festival books. Festival entertainments were presented to mark such occasions as royal and ducal entries to capital cities, dynastic marriages, the birth and christening of heirs, religious feasts and royal and ducal funerals. Europa Triumphans represents the chronological and trans-European range of the court and civic festival. These festivals are considered not simply as texts, but as events, and are introduced by groups o

Women beware women by Thomas Middleton( Book )

34 editions published between 1975 and 2007 in 3 languages and held by 750 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the great Renaissance playwrights, Middleton wrote tragedies essentially different from either Marlowe's or Shakespeare's, being wittier than the former and more grittily ironic than the latter. The genre of 'citizen tragedy' came into its own in the eighteenth century, but Middleton can claim to have created it: Bianca, wife of a middling commercial agent, arouses the lust of the Duke of Florence and becomes his mistress, first secretly, then openly and finally, after her husband has been seduced by the scheming Lady Livia and stabbed by Livia's brother, the Duke's wife. Livia plots he

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

21 editions published between 2002 and 2017 in English and held by 502 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 349 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 )

11 editions published between 1998 and 2010 in English and held by 340 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

The impact of Italian popular tradition on Shakespeare's comedies is analysed, together with Jonson's theatrical recreation of Venice, and Italian sources for the court masques of Jonson, Daniel and Campion
Ceremonial entries in early modern Europe : the iconography of power by J. R Mulryne( Book )

16 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 191 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The fourteen essays that comprise this volume concentrate on festival iconography, the visual and written languages, including ephemeral and permanent structures, costume, dramatic performance, inscriptions and published festival books that 'voiced' the social, political and cultural messages incorporated in processional entries in the countries of Early Modern Europe. The volume also includes a transcript of the newly-discovered Register of Lionardo di Zanobi Bartholini, a Florentine merchant, which sets out in detail the expenses for each worker for the possesso (or Entry) of Pope Leo X to Rome in April 1513"--

This sixth volume in the European Festival Studies series stems from a joint conference (Venice, 2013) between the Society for European Festivals Research and the European Science Foundation's PALATIUM project.

International pan-European turbulence associated with post-Reformation religious conflict supplies the context within which the book explores how the period's rulers and aelite families competed for power - in a forecast of today's divided world
