Farce : a history from Aristophanes to Woody Allen by Albert Bermel( Book )

19 editions published between 1982 and 1990 in English and held by 952 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a celebration of the expansiveness and inclusiveness of farce, this book describes the art form rather than defines it. Part 1 illustrates the nature of farce and its relationship to tragedy, comedy, and melodrama. Part 2 is a cumulative biography of farce, beginning with Greek and Roman writers and continuing through Shakespeare, Moliere, and into the Dadaists, Surrealists, and others of the twentieth century. The book reviews a Hollywood-inspired resurgence of farce, which has seeped into such diverse artistic categories as painting, fiction, poetry, dance, and music. The book also discusses the works of such modern masters of farce as Charlie Chaplin, Buster Keaton, the Marx Brothers, Woody Allen, Mel Brooks, Sid Caesar, and Monty Python. (Sg)

Shakespeare at the moment : playing the comedies by Albert Bermel( Book )

3 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 320 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Certainty may give way to misgiving, happiness may become unease. Moment-to-moment changes often make actors and directors pause and ponder when deciding to perform a Shakespeare comedy. But this should not be the case, claims theatre scholar Albert Bermel. In Shakespeare at the Moment, Bermel contends that Shakespeare's comedies depend for their effects on their sparkling inconsistency and spontaneity, and on the opportunities they offer for artistic ingenuity and initiative. The book discusses fifteen plays, addressing Shakespeare's experimentation, the power and intelligence of his inconsistencies, his novel "happy" endings, and ultimately, how each comedy can be performed."--Jacket
