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

12 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 217 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

In the plays of O'Neill, the "fool" becomes an oppressive verbal performer. His on-stage audiences are preoccupied with driving him back to the margins of the stage. The "fool's" verbal assault and social exile parallel the separation of performer and audience in realistic theater. In Williams's plays, the "fool" performs his or her traditional challenge to authority. The "fool's" improvisational play with reality combats the rigid, iconic verbal performances of authoritarian figures, reflecting the "plastic" theater's tension between realism and expressionism. Finally, Shepard brings tricksters onto the stage who undermine the stability of realist characters. The transformation of the realist character due to trickster performance is informed by the postmodern theater's lessened demarcation between performer and audience

Tragicomic fools in Shakespeare and Beckett by Anne Marie Drew( )

1 edition published in 1986 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

As tricksters, Autolycus in The Winter's Tale and Willie in Happy Days are distant reflectors of Leontes and Winnie and they remain, for the most part, on the dramatic periphery. Although they sometimes garner center-stage attention, Autolycus remains far from the Sicilian king whose folly he mirrors and only once does Willie come face to face with his wife in Happy Days. With the Fool in King Lear and Lucky in Waiting for Godot, the mirroring becomes more intimate as we see these court fools, yoked by pain to Lear and Pozzo, step through the mirror to embrace and ultimately expiate the suffering of their masters. In Hamlet and Endgame folly commands center-stage attention as the Danish prince and Hamm snatch folly from Polonius and Clov. Like Autolycus and Willie, Lear's Fool and Lucky, Hamlet and Hamm reflect the larger absurdity of the worlds they inhabit, but unlike the others, they actively turn to folly in order to accommodate the chaos of their own lives
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

In examining disembodied and re-embodied voices in William Faulkner's As I Lay Dying, Flannery O'Connor's The Violent Bear it Away, and Toni Morrison's Beloved, the dissertation places these texts in a Gothic tradition and uses the mythological figure of Echo as a metaphor for subversive, usually feminine voices that refuse suppression and live on beyond death and for voices that blend and merge through repetition among characters. The three novels are related to some traditional Gothic texts (such as The Monk, Wieland, Melmoth, The Wanderer, and Dracula), which use disembodied voices to unsettle readers, to question notions of identity, death, and corporeal presence, to explore relationships between voice and authority, and to show "self" as not distinct, autonomous, or permanent
