Sharp cut : Harold Pinter's screenplays and the artistic process by Steven H Gale( )

15 editions published between 2002 and 2021 in English and held by 1,669 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Sharp Cut: Harold Pinter's Screenplays and the Artistic Process, Steven H. Gale, the world's foremost Pinter scholar, analyzes Pinter's creative process from initial conception to finished film, bringing unparalleled insight to information from the Pinter Archives in the British Library, the Margaret Herrick Library at the Association for Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, and unpublished materials provided by Pinter himself. To reveal the meaning of all of the film scripts and to explain the cinematic techniques used to express that meaning, Gale makes careful, point-by-point comparisons of each stage in the screenplay's creation - the source material, the adaptations themselves, and the films made from the scripts."--Jacket

A collection of forty-three selections from some of the most important contemporary plays and playwrights of the 1990s. These selections reflect actors' and student actors' desires for new and fresh scenes and monologs, pieces that are up-to-date and exciting to perform. The book reflects current trends where small theatre groups proliferate, women and minorities have a growing influence, and drama has become a truly international art form. Includes monologs for male and female actors, duet scenes for two male and two female actors, and scenes for combinations of male and female actors. Also includes four complete ten-minute plays. Thirty-five playwrights are represented including Albee, Fratti, Kushner, Horowitz, Wilder, Norman, Dresser, Gurney, Rivera, Cruz, Friel and more. Many selections contain strong language and adult situations which might be objectionable to some. Sample scenes and monologs include: A Cheever Evening by A.R. Gurney, Flux by Susan Miller, Telling Tales by Migdalia Cruz, Barking Sharks by Israel Horowitz, Angels in America and Slavs by Tony Kushner, Event Horizon by Christopher Kyle, Porno By Mario Fratti, Fragments by Edward Albee and Tape by Jose Rivera

Encyclopedia of American humorists by Steven H Gale( )

19 editions published between 1986 and 2017 in English and held by 143 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"First published in 1988, this book contains entries on famous American Humorists. Humor has been present in American literature, from the beginning, and has developed characteristics that reflect the American character, both regional and national. Although American literature was, in the past, treated as inferior to British literature, there has always been a large popular audience for the genre, which this book shows. The figures with entries in this encyclopedia not only amuse in their writing, but also aim to enlighten- setting out to expose the foibles and foolishness of society and the individuals who compose it. It is the manner in which these authors try to accomplish this end that determines whether they appear in the volume. Indeed, the book will demonstrate that the best humor has at its base, a ready understanding of human nature"--Publisher's website
