Shakespeare : the histories by Graham Holderness( Book )

17 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 711 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This new treatment of Shakespeare's historical dramas starts out from the social and cultural context in which these 'historical' plays of chivalric antiquity, epic heroism and masculine virtue were produced, and suggests that we need to understand these plays primarily in terms of historical, cultural and sexual difference, and as the celebration and exploration of values that were relatively marginal to central priorities of the late Tudor state. The plays depict a history clearly and sharply differentiated from their own contemporary present, and therefore understandably remote and alien." "Holderness brings a completely new approach to the corpus of Shakespeare's history plays, reviewing early modern sources in the light of modern theory and modern views informed by rereadings of the past."--Jacket

Gender and power in shrew-taming narratives, 1500-1700( Book )

9 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 398 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the first book to address and explore the various dramatic, poetic and narrative versions of the popular t̀aming of the shrew' story, from the Middle Ages to the Restoration, in the light of new historical work on the place of early modern women in society." "The contributors address the historical interrelationships of key theatrical texts such as the anonymous The Taming of A Shrew, Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew, John Fletcher's The Woman's Prize, or The Tamer Tamed and John Lacey's Sauny the Scot. The essays in this volume subsume and extend the historical work, especially on the later seventeenth-century versions, and address the multiple shrew-taming narratives as an extended cultural dialogue debating key issues of gender and sexual politics." "Recent criticism has tended to overplay p̀ower' readings of the shrewplays and to cast especially Shakespeare's play as an irredeemable document of barbarism. This volume reopens some of these critical questions and takes a fresh perspective on the renaissance shrew. The cast of contributors represents a balance between established critics responsible for seminal work in shrew-studies and younger scholars whose research is exploring new directions." "List of Contributors: Anna Bayman, Sandra Clark, Charles Conaway, Holly A. Crocker, Barry Gaines, H.J. Helmers, Richard Madelaine, Leah S. Marcus, Margaret Maurer, Jan Purnis, George Southcombe, and Ann Thompson."--Jacket

Annotation
Tales from Shakespeare : Creative Collisions by Graham Holderness( Book )

13 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 354 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this engaging new book, writer and critic Graham Holderness shows how a classic Shakespeare play can be the source for a modern story, providing a creative 'collision' between the Shakespeare text and contemporary concerns. Using an analogy from particle physics, Holderness tests his methodology through specific examples, structured in four parts: a recreation of performances of Hamlet and Richard II aboard the East India Company ship the Red Dragon in 1607; an imagined encounter between Shakespeare and Ben Jonson writing the King James Bible; the creation of a contemporary folk hero based on Coriolanus and drawing on films such as Skyfall and The Hurt Locker; and an account of the terrorist bombing at a performance of Twelfth Night in Qatar in 2005. These pieces of narrative and drama are interspersed with literary criticism, each using a feature of the original Shakespeare play or its performance to illuminate the extraordinary elasticity of Shakespeare. The 'tales' provoke questions about what we understand to be Shakespeare and not-Shakespeare, making the book of vital interest to students, scholars and enthusiasts of Shakespeare, literary criticism and creative writing"--

The tragedy of Hamlet, prince of Denmark by William Shakespeare( Book )

14 editions published between 1990 and 1992 in English and held by 286 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The first quarto of Hamlet is radically different from the second quarto and Folio versions of the play, and about half their length. But despite its uneven verbal texture and simpler characterisation, the first quarto presents its own workable alternatives to the longer texts, reordering and combining key plot elements, and even including a unique scene between Horatio and the Queen. This new critical edition is designed for students, scholars and actors who are intrigued by the first printed text of Shakespeare's Hamlet. Although the first quarto has been reprinted many times, there is no other modernised edition in print. Irace's introduction outlines views of its origins, its special features, and its surprisingly rich performance history; her textual notes point out differences between the first quarto and the longer second quarto and Folio versions and offer alternatives which actors or directors might choose for specific productions"--Added title page
