Shakespeare's theatre : a dictionary of his stage context by Hugh M Richmond( )

26 editions published between 2000 and 2014 in English and held by 2,073 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Shakespeare's Theatre consolidates the author's forty years of experience in studying and staging Shakespeare's plays. Under an alphabetical list of relevant terms, names and concepts, the book reviews current knowledge of the character and operation of theatres in Shakespeare's time, with an explanation of their origins. Coverage includes the practices of Elizabethan actors and script writers: methods of characterization; gesture, blocking and choreography, including music, dance and fighting; actors' rhetorical interaction with audiences; and use of costumes, stage props, and make-up." "The author makes use of scripts and scholarship about original stagings of Shakespeare and suggests how those productions related to modern staging. Much of this material has developed as a result of the recent increased interest in the significance of performance for interpreting Shakespeare, including the recovery of the archaeological evidence about the original Rose and Globe Theaters. The book contains current bibliographies for each topic and consolidates these in an overall bibliography for Shakespeare and his theaters."--Jacket

Shakespeare's tragedies reviewed : a spectator's role by Hugh M Richmond( )

12 editions published in 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 298 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Shakespeare?s Tragedies Reviewed explores how the recognition of spectator interests by the playwright has determined the detailed character of Shakespeare tragedies. Utilizing Shakespeare?s European models and contemporaries, including Cinthio and Lope de Vega, and following forms such as Aristotle?s second, more popular style of tragedy (a double ending of punishment for the evil and honor for the good), Hugh Macrae Richmond elicits radical revision of traditional interpretations of the scripts. The analysis includes a major shift in emphasis from conventionally tragic concerns to a more varied blend of tones, characterizations, and situations, designed to hold spectator interest rather than to meet neoclassical standards of coherence, focus, and progression. This reinterpretation also bears on modern staging and directorial emphasis, challenging the relevance of traditional norms of tragedy to production of Renaissance drama. The stress shifts to plays? counter-movements to tragic tones, and to scripts? contrasting positive factors to common downbeat interpretations ? such as the role of humor in King Lear and the significance of residual leadership in the tragedies as seen in the roles of Malcolm, Edgar, Cassio, and Octavius, as well as the broader progressions in such continuities as those within Shakespeare?s Roman world from Julius Caesar and Antony and Cleopatra to Cymbeline. It becomes apparent that the authority of the spectator in such Shakespearean titles as What You Will and As You Like It may bear meaningfully on interpretation of more plays than just the comedies

Shakespeare relocated : studies in historical psychology by Hugh M Richmond( Book )

8 editions published in 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 98 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Hugh Richmond uses his previous published essays to illustrate the development of modern attitudes to religion, politics and sexuality. He traces the complex evolution from classical and medieval sources to Reformation and Renaissance ones by reviewing literary themes, style, and attitudes. He stresses Shakespeare's unique place in this evolution in Historical Psychology as an author profoundly affected by the Reformation. This study of developing sensibility employs a method of critical analysis bridging the apparent gap between scholarly research and practical criticism, and transcending the discontinuities and tensions in modern literary theory. He seeks to harmonize the critical alertness of the New Critics with the traditional scholarship of their opponents, while avoiding the narrowness of many fashionable modern methodologies such as the New Historicism, Neo-Freudianism, Radical Feminism, etc. This historical perspective involves a comparative critical procedure defined as "Syncretic Criticism." It combines close reading and comprehensive perspective over previous literary analogues, in order to identify distinctive progressions towards many modern attitudes about politics, morality, sexuality, and fashion" --
