Canonical states, canonical stages : Oedipus, othering, and seventeenth-century drama by Mitchell Greenberg( )

15 editions published in 1994 in English and French and held by 947 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Racine : from ancient myth to tragic modernity by Mitchell Greenberg( )

13 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 873 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A study of all of the major tragedies of Jean Racine, France's preeminent dramatist--and, according to many, its greatest and most representative author--Mitchell Greenberg's work offers an exploration of Racinian tragedy to explain the enigma of the plays' continued fascination. Greenberg shows how Racine uses myth, in particular the legend of Oedipus, to achieve his emotional power. In the seventeenth-century tragedies of Racine, almost all references to physical activity were banned from the stage. Yet contemporary accounts of the performances describe vivid emotional reactions of the audience

In the silent pre-dawn city hours -- alone with his thoughts about Rina Lazarus, the woman he loves, three thousand miles away in New York -- LAPD detective Peter Decker finds a small child, abandoned and covered in blood that is not hers. It is a sobering discovery, and a perplexing one, for nobody in the development where she was found steps forward to claim the little girl. Obsessed more deeply by this case than he imagined possible, Decker is determined to follow the scant clues to an answer. But his trail is leading him to a killing ground where four bodies lie still and lifeless. And by the time Rina returns, Peter Decker is already held fast in a sticky mass of hatred, passion, and murder -- in a world where intense sweetness is accompanied by a deadly sting

Subjectivity and subjugation in seventeenth-century drama and prose : the family romance of French classicism by Mitchell Greenberg( Book )

11 editions published between 1992 and 2006 in English and held by 436 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book analyzes the relation between the modern subject who emerges in seventeenth-century French literature, particularly in dramatic works, and the emergence of the first modern Absolutist state. It shows how in the work of the major writers of the Classical period (Corneille, Racine, Moliere, Lafayette and others) a new subjectivity is formed in and through the representation of the family, which serves to mediate a patriarchal ideology of sexual and political repression. It examines why the theater became the privileged form of representation in this state, and why this theater concentrates almost exclusively on family conflict. Professor Greenberg argues that the narrative of Oedipal sexuality and subjugation central to this new literary canon reflected the conflicting social, political and economic forces that were shifting European society away from the universe of the Renaissance and guiding it towards the "transparency" of Classical representation

7 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 291 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Mitchell Greenberg explores the significance of fantasies of the body in seventeenth-century France through readings of some of the most intriguing texts of the period." "In addition to his richly nuanced readings, Greenberg integrates into his argument material from a broad array of disciplines, including psychoanalysis, feminism, epistemology and history. He also points out the implications of his argument for the political, theological, and historical thought of the period, moving effortlessly from witch trials in France to discussions of bodies in Renaissance English literary criticism to the works of Bakhtin, Foucault, Freud, and Lacan."--Jacket

Corneille, classicism and the ruses of symmetry by Mitchell Greenberg( Book )

4 editions published between 1986 and 2009 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Professor Greenberg's lucid study examines the themes of authority, power and sexuality in Corneille's major plays, drawing on the work of Foucault, and Freudian and feminist critics. He begins by considering the question of myth and of a 'pre-historical' cultural memory in Médée, and proceeds to a detailed analysis of each of the four best-known tragedies: Le Cid, Horace, Cinna, and Polyeucte. A concluding chapter discusses two middle-period plays and Suréna, Corneille's last tragedy. Professor Greenberg argues that the formal symmetries of classical tragedy reflect a desire for control in the realm of both politics and sexuality. He also seeks to show how these principles of symmetry are challenged or undermined in various ways by the plays themselves. The result is an exacerbation of sexual and political desire which invests Cornelian tragedy with its peculiar power and involves us so deeply in its world
