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

12 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 229 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?

1 edition published in 1977 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

This study uses the birth trauma and creative will theories of Otto Rank to analyze the characters in selected plays of Henrik Ibsen and Eugene O'Neill. It also applies these theories to the artists' lives. Rank believes that anxiety originates at birth when infants are separated from their mothers. Throughout life, people both yearn to return to the womb and yet fear reliving the pain of separation
The Dramatic world of Harold Pinter : its basis and ritual by Katherine H Burkman( Book )

2 editions published in 1971 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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
The encounter between age and youth : Ibsen's The master builder, Mann's Death in Venice, and Beckett's Krapp's last tape by Spencer A Alexander( )

1 edition published in 1989 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

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

The study of these six plays incorporates both textual analysis and performance history. The assumption throughout is that both Shakespeare and Beckett dramatically insist that the movement toward life and insight is stronger than the one toward death and despair. Neither Shakespeare nor Beckett holds forth a vision of a world made new by the fool's presence, yet the works of both men reveal a belief that as long as the fool is in our midst, we will endure
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

Thus, both within and throughout the larger scale of Beckett's plays as a whole, there is a movement toward re-visioning our world in terms of a non-closed, unselfconscious state
