V. and other poems by Tony Harrison( Book )

37 editions published between 1985 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 498 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

V. es la inicial de la preposición inglesa "versus", "contra". Pero también "v" es la inicial de "versos". Un juego de palabras que comienza por el título y continúa en el poema. Un poema que es un descenso a uno de los círculos del infierno de la sociedad contemporánea actual: el círculo de la alienación, el paro, la violencia, donde tan fácilmente surgen esos "hooligans", esos "skinheads" o cabezas rapadas neonazis que tanto inquitan desde hace años

Phaedra Britannica by Tony Harrison( Book )

18 editions published between 1975 and 2013 in English and held by 273 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In his adaptation of Racine, Harrison ingeniously transposes the action of the old Greek tragedy of Phaedra to the steamy landscape of an India seen through the narrow eye slits of Victorian society. The story seen through this arresting perspective with the ancient and vengeful Gods of India taking over from the Greek furies takes on a special vibrancy. 'Phaedra Britannica' was first performed by the National Theatre Company at the Old Vic in September 1975

The Oresteia by Eschyle( Book )

11 editions published between 1981 and 2004 in English and held by 237 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Orestia--Agamemnon, Choephori, and The Eumenides--depicts the downfall of the house of Atreus: after King Agamemnon is murdered by Clytemnestra, their son, Orestes, is commanded by Apollo to avenge the crime by killing his mother, and he does so, bringing on himself the wrath of the Furies and the judgment of Athens. Together, the three plays are one of the major achievements of Greek antiquity. Hughes's 'acting version' of the trilogy is itself a great performance; while artfully inflected with the contemporary, it has a classical beauty and authority"--Jacket

Permanently bard : selected poetry by Tony Harrison( Book )

10 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 179 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This edition of Harrison's poetry has been selected for students. It shows the poet finding his voice, staking a claim to a seat in 'the school of eloquence', and talking with his predecessors - Milton, Keats, Lawrence. It shows the continual regeneration of his abiding concerns: language, class, education, and the ownership of culture; negotiations between the sexes; social preoccupations - grudges, rages and self-interrogation. Harrison's public voice is represented in a selection of his longer poems, and in extracts from his theatre poetry: The Oresteia, Medea: a sex-war opera, The Trackers of Oxyrhynchus, The Common Chorus, Square Rounds and Poetry or Bust."--Jacket
