Themes and conventions of Elizabethan tragedy by M. C Bradbrook( Book )

123 editions published between 1934 and 1994 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,486 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first edition of this book formed the basis of the modern approach to Elizabethan poetic drama as a performing art, an approach pursued in subsequent volumes by Professor Bradbrook. Its influence has also extended to other fields; it has been studied by Grigori Kozintesev and Sergei Eisenstein for instance. Conventions of open stage, stylized plot and characters, and actors' traditions of presentation are related to the special expectations which a rhetorical training produced in the listeners. The general discussion of tragic conventions is followed by individual studies of how these were used by Marlowe, Tourneur, Webster and Middlewon. For this second edition Professor Bradbrook has revised her material and written a new introduction. A new final chapter on performace and characterization describes the conventions of role-playing. Dramatists before and after Shakespeare are compared with him in their methods of showing a complex identity on stage. This chapter also considers the work of Marston, Chapman and Ford in relation to the themes and conventions studied in earlier chapters, providing a link with the subsequent volumes in A History of Elizabethan Drama

Shakespeare : the poet in his world by M. C Bradbrook( Book )

35 editions published between 1968 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,628 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in 1978. In this study, Shakespeare's own life story and the development of English theatrical history are placed in the wider context of Elizabethan and Jacobean times, but the works themselves are the final objective of this 'applied biography'. The main contention of the book is that Shakespeare's life was the lure of the stage itself which inspired him to transform what everyday life provided into the worlds of Hamlet, King Lear and Prospero

The living monument : Shakespeare and the theatre of his time by M. C Bradbrook( Book )

32 editions published between 1966 and 1979 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume characterizes English playwright William Shakespeare's (1564-1616) achievements and those of his contemporaries and attempts to categorize them in their social and differing theatrical contexts. The author is mainly concerned the sociology of the theatre and traces the evolution of the new drama from the later years of Elizabeth into the more established conditions of Jacobean times (the period in English literary history that coincides with the reign of King James I, after the death of Shakespeare). She also demonstrates the interaction of fellow English dramatist Benjamin Jonson's (1572-1637) work for the court with Shakespeare's work for the popular stage. As the leading writer now for the King's Men at the Globe I, Shakespeare's reaction to Jonson's challenge and stimulus was an increasing use of romantic elements in his plays, as he integrated the material demanded by the very different audiences at the Globe, the Blackfriars and the court. Throughout, the work takes full account of developments in stage history which have brought unexpected facts to light and have altered thinking about Shakespeare's stage

John Webster, citizen and dramatist by M. C Bradbrook( Book )

16 editions published in 1980 in English and Undetermined and held by 731 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Little has been known about Webster until quite recently when his family origins were traced in the London parish of St Sepulchrewithout-Newgate. Now we know that his father was a coachmaker and that he lived with his family in Nag's Head Alley. In this, the first full study of the citizen and dramatist, Professor Bradbrook shows how Webster's education at the Merchant Taylors' School and the Middle Temple nurtured his dramatic art, and how his neighbours - Sidney's Stella (Lady Penelope Rich) and Antonio Perez, the Spanish spy - were in part the prototypes of the great characters of his tragedies. This leads to a new appreciation of his two masterpieces, The White Devil and The Duchess of Malfi. -- Book Jacket
