Samuel Beckett Erinnerungen von Verwandten und Freunden( Visual )

3 editions published between 1996 and 2006 in German and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Er ist eine der zentralen Figuren der Moderne und wäre am 13. April 2006 100 Jahre alt geworden: der irische Schriftsteller und Dramatiker Samuel Beckett. Weit über seinen Tod hinaus zählt er zu den grossen Dramatikern unserer Zeit. Berühmt wurde er durch Theaterstücke wie "Warten auf Godot" und "Endspiel". Mit seiner Darstellung von Schmerz und Verzweiflung traf er den Nerv der Zeit. Die zweiteilige BBC-Dokumentation ist ein Zeitdokument, in dem nahe Verwandte und Freunde sich an den absurden Dramatiker und unermüdlichen Menschen erinnern. Der Film folgt Becketts Biographie. Der erste Teil endet mit dem 2. Weltkrieg, während dem Beckett in der französischen Résistance, später als Sanitäter engagiert war. Im zweiten Teil des BBC-Porträts über den irischen Schriftsteller und Dramatiker Samuel Beckett, der am 13. April 1906 geboren wurde, erinnern sich seine Freunde und Verwandten an die Zeit seiner grossen Erfolge. Seinen Durchbruch erlangte Beckett - als bald 50jähriger Schriftsteller - 1953 mit seinem Theaterstück <<Warten auf Godot>>. Es war das erste einer Reihe von Stücken über die Absurdität der menschlichen Existenz. 1969 erhielt Beckett den Nobelpreis für Literatur, blieb der Überreichungszeremonie jedoch fern. Die BBC-Dokumentation ist ein Zeitdokument, ein persönliches Porträt, in dem sich Freunde, Verwandte und Schauspieler an den Menschen und wichtigen Dramatiker der Moderne erinnern. Es sind zudem Ausschnitte aus seinen Stücken zu sehen, so aus <<Das letzte Band>> mit Patrick Magee

Walking into eternity the Dublin of Joyce's Ulysses( Visual )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Ulysses offended the polite sensibilities of the day. At the same time, the novel's vivid descriptions were undeniably accurate. This lyrical program traces the action of James Joyce's masterpiece through the city of Dublin, tying events in the novel to the places he described, such as Martello Tower, Sandymount Strand, Dublin Quays, the National Library of Ireland, Davy Byrne's Pub, and the Glasnevin Cemetery. This walking tour of Dublin, sprinkled with quotes from Joyce and his novel, is a valuable supplement to the teaching and appreciation of Ulysses
