The drama of the double : permeable boundaries by Katherine H Burkman( Book )

10 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book explores the way in which doubling takes place in several novels, films, and dramas, primarily focusing on modern drama and exploring how five Greek myths – Oedipus, Narcissus, Dionysus, Orestes, and Demeter – inform the literature. Taking a psychological/mythical approach, this book explores the inner divisions that lead to boundary loss and the search for the self that may lead to boundaries found. The contention of the book is that the oedipal search for self has been replaced in modern literature by individuals caught up in a narcissistic culture. Katherine H. Burkman explores plays by Aeschylus, Sophocles, Euripides, Henrik Ibsen, Eugene O'Neill, Samuel Beckett, Harold Pinter, David Mamet, Sam Shepard, Marsha Norman, and Will Eno

April cruel by Katherine H Burkman( Book )

2 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Set in the 1970's at a small college in Pennsylvania, April Cruel proves T.S. Eliot right: "April is the cruelest month." When the rigid and rather unpleasant professor, Erica Berne, discovers that her fiance has been murdered, she not only is grief-stricken, but she also becomes the victim of several murder attempts that misfire and kill or harm others. Two young professors in the English department, Jim Strand and David Stein, attempt to uncover the perpetrator of the crimes, along with one of David's students, Jill Lake, with whom he has fall in love and Susie Marsh, a departmental secretary for whom Jim has a growing affection. Detective Norman Halloway is also seeking the killer, and since so many have grudges against Erica Berne, there are motives aplenty. Are the murders connected in any way with the death of Professor Berne's former fiance? Has she so offended other students and teachers that they have decided to eliminate her? What kind of hold does she have over the chariman of the department, Wilfred Black? Will hysterical parents force the closing of Huston college so near the end of the semester? And why does Jill Lake feel that she is herself in terrible danger?

The performance of folly in plays by O'Neill, Williams, and Shepard by Robert Brian Conklin( )

2 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study examines the function of the fool or trickster in selected dramas of O'Neill, Williams, and Shepard: Emperor Jones, Marco Millions, and Iceman Cometh; Streetcar Named Desire, Rose Tattoo, Camino Real; and Tooth of Crime, True West, and Fool for Love. Traditionally, the fool is marginal, on the sidelines of the drama. The fool in these American dramas, however, is an unlicensed figure. As the fool in these plays assumes a more authoritative part, he or she brings into question the problem of performative power. By focusing on on-stage performance situations, in which the fool is a verbal performer, one may gain insight into the playwright's concerns about the relationship between actor and audience
Rank, Ibsen, and O'Neill : birth trauma and creative will in selected dramas by Maureen F Voigt( )

2 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ibsen and O'Neill consider people's pasts as relevant to their present actions. Mary Tyrone lives virtually in the world of her youth. The mythical past is also meaningful in Ibsen and O'Neill's plays. Sometimes the playwrights use mythical heroes to parody the heroic stature of their protagonists
Toward a more cohesive self : women in the works of Lillian Hellman and Marsha Norman by Linda Ginter Brown( )

1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Two American playwrights, Lillian Hellman and Marsha Norman, focus particularly upon the struggle that women characters experience during their quests for psychological wholeness. My contention is that with Hellman the search for a more cohesive self is unsuccessful, whereas with Norman, a greater move toward a fully cohesive self occurs. As a basis for my investigation, I draw upon the work of Nancy Chodorow, whose modifications of object-relations theory emphasizes the relation of the psyche to the social context in which it develops. This "theory of self" focuses on the preoedipal dyad of child and first love object, the mother or primary caretaker, rather than the oedipal triangle of mother, father, and child. Although a male eventually represses his sexual feelings for his mother, a female retains the pre-oedipal bond with her mother and continues to define herself relationally
Disembodied and re-embodied voices : the figure of echo in American gothic texts by Katherine Piller Beutel( )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

As "echoes" of Faulkner's text, O'Connor's and Morrison's reveal increasing emphasis on corporeality and merging in their uses of echoes. Although Faulkner uses echoes to focus on questions of identity, O'Connor to highlight unresolved problems of authority, and Morrison to emphasize the need for connection and community, all rely upon the Gothically subversive power of voices that continue to speak and echo
No-thing is more real than nothing Zen/Chaos Theory in the Dramatic Art of Samuel Beckett by John L Kundert-Gibbs( )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
