Elizabethan stage conditions : a study of their place in the interpretation of Shakespeare's plays by M. C Bradbrook( Book )

64 editions published between 1931 and 1969 in English and held by 1,208 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A short, vigorous and clear study of the use and misuse of our knowledge of Elizabethan stage conditions in interpreting Shakespeare's plays. After reviewing past Shakespearean criticism and showing the unsatisfactory results of treating Shakespeare as a pure poet unfettered by time and place, Professor Bradbrook explains how the bare open stage of theatres like the Globe allowed great flexibility of dramatic structure for Shakespeare and his contemporaries; she considers the degree to which the Elizabethan audience influenced the content of the plays and the effects of the conventions and peculiarities of Shakespeare's actors on his dramatic characters. She argues that an increased knowledge of Elizabethan stage conditions can prevent the interference of some preconceptions of our own age and help to make a fruitful separation between historic and appreciative criticism. This essay, long unobtainable, is now made generally available. -- Publisher's description

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

31 editions published between 1966 and 2006 in English and held by 1,112 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

Malcolm Lowry: his art & early life; a study in transformation by M. C Bradbrook( Book )

24 editions published between 1972 and 1975 in English and Undetermined and held by 867 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This 1975 book corrects and amplifies the record of Malcolm Lowry's early life, recording for the first time one of its crucial incidents. Lowry was an alcoholic and wanderer who turned a failed life into a success of a different order, and which has been recognised only after his death. Like Lowry, Professor Bradbrook was born in Wirral and writes of the scenes of early life with sympathetic understanding. She also knew the Cambridge of the 1930s, when Lowry read English there. Bradbrook considers the critical point of knowledge of Lowry's life, and the ways in which it is absorbed in his writings. This enquiry broadens out into a discussion of the art itself, and will serve as an excellent introduction of Lowry's life"--Publisher description

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

19 editions published in 1980 in English and Undetermined and held by 757 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
Themes and conventions of Elizabethan tragedy by M. C Bradbrook( Book )

8 editions published between 1935 and 1980 in English and held by 749 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
