Marxism and literature by Raymond Williams( Book )
64 editions published between 1977 and 2009 in 7 languages and held by 1,397 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book extends the theme of Raymond Williams's earlier work in literary and cultural analysis. He analyses previous contributions to a Marxist theory of literature from Marx himself to Lukacs, Althusser, and Goldmann, and develops his own approach by outlining a theory of 'cultural materialism' which integrates Marxist theories of language with Marxist theories of literature. Williams moves from a review of the growth of the concepts of literature and idealogy to a redefinition of 'determinism' and 'hegemony'. His incisive discussion of the 'social material process' of cultural activity culminates in a re-examination of the problems of alignment and commitment and of the creative practice in individual authors and wider social groups
Drama in performance by Raymond Williams( Book )
47 editions published between 1954 and 2010 in 4 languages and held by 1,179 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Raymond Williams' reputation rests mainly on his contribution to literary and cultural studies, but he was also an important critic and theoretician in the field of drama. "Drama in Performance", first published in 1954, pioneered a method of dramaturgical rather than literary-critical analysis of plays, locating dramatic texts in the conditions and conventions of their original performance and reading them to disclose their performance potentialities. This method, which anticipated such contemporary developments as performance analysis and the semiotics of drama, is here applied to representative texts from key periods of the history of drama: the Greek stage, the medieval theatre-in-the-round and pageant-wagon, the Elizabethan public playhouse, London commercial theatres from the Restoration to the late 19th century, the naturalist stage of the Moscow Art Theatre, 20th century experimental drama, and contemporary film. This edition presents the text as Williams revised it in 1966.; In addition, it provides an updated bibliography of work in this field, a complete listing of all Williams' relevant writings, and a new Introduction (by Graham Holderness), which locates the book both within modern dramatic theory and criticism, and within Williams' own work and demonstrates its continuing challenge and relevance
