Methods and practice of Elizabethan swordplay by Craig Turner( )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 327 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This important addition to a neglected area of Renaissance studies examines the only three existing Elizabethan fencing manuals written in English before 1600: Giacomo Di Grassi's His True Arte of Defence (1594), Vincentio Saviolo's His Practise in Two Bookes (1595), and George Silver's Paradoxes of Defence and Bref Instructions Upon my Paradoxes of Defence (1599). The Italian swordsmen Di Grassi and Saviolo describe rapier techniques. Their works were instrumental in popularizing the rapier in the late 16th century. The Silver tract is a challenge to the rapier style from an older, more conservative swordsman. Analyzing these three works, Turner and Soper illuminate an important transitional period in the history of personal defense. They review the main technical and theoretical ideas from each manual, comparing and contrasting their viewpoints. Period drawings and prints of swordplay supplement the discussion. The result is a clear picture of what personal combat looked and felt like in Elizabethan England in the alleys, streets, and dueling fields. More than a technical manual on swordplay, this book explores the influence of a new form of violence introduced into Elizabethan culture by the invention of the rapier. The authors examine the rapier's influence on the various social classes; the clash between the traditional English fencing masters and those embracing the new style; the growing concern with unregulated dueling; and the frequent references to rapier play in the works of Shakespeare and his contemporaries. A concluding chapter reconstructs typical Elizabethan swordplay by combining the primary techniques from all three manuals. Through descriptions and illustrations, Turner and Soper show what fighting looked like at the time of Shakespeare. After reconstructing real swordplay of the period, they conclude by making suggestions to modern directors who seek authenticity in their productions."--Jacket

Recaptures the birth of a new theatre from the Civil Rights activism of the 1950's, '60s, and '70s. Presents an encyclopedia of the leading figures, institutions and events. Clips from historic productions include the first all-black production of Genet's The Blacks, along with A Raisin in the sun, Black girl, Dutchman, and For Colored girls who have considered suicide when the rainbow is enuf. These plays marched onto the world stage and into American playhouses during the heyday of the Civil Rights ad Black Power movements. Out of the revolutionary demands for equality and self-determination came a cultural revolution that shook the theatre establishment with new aesthetics and narratives reflecting the exigent cry for racial justice. This film documents the birth of this new theatre and highlights the leading figures and events that transformed the American stage. Amiri Baraka, Ossie Davis, James Earl Jones and Ntozake Shange describe their aspirations for a theatre serving the Black community, and reveal how these actors and playwrights laid the basis for the Black theatre of the present
