The round dance, and other plays by Arthur Schnitzler( )

5 editions published between 2004 and 2008 in English and held by 1,193 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The playwright Arthur Schnitzler is best known as the chronicler of fin de siecle Viennese decadence. Round Dance, written in the late 1890s, exposes sexual life in Vienna with such witty frankness that it could not be staged until after the First World War, when it provoked a riot in the theatre and a prosecution for indecency. The other plays in this collection explore love, sexuality, and death in various guises, always with a sharp, non-judgemental awareness of the complexity and mystery of the psyche. Acquainted with Freud and his circle, Schnitzler probes beneath the surface of his characters to uncover emotions they barely understand. And in the tragicomedy Professor Bernhardi, Schnitzler addresses the growing anti-Semitism of the period."--Jacket
Bridging the gap : literary theory in the classroom( Book )

5 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 368 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The impact of theory on literary studies at universities has changed the face of the discipline over the past two decades. Inherently interdisciplinary, theory has broadened the context in which literature is now discussed and extended the range of competencies and pedagogic skills the tertiary teacher is called upon to master. In many departments it has created a conceptual generation gap between traditionalists and scholars more at home with theory, which can impact adversely on students' education. Yet it has also created opportunities for exciting curriculum and pedagogic innovation
Blake's Milton designs : the dynamics of meaning by J. M. Q Davies( Book )

7 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in English and held by 245 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Though Blake's splendid watercolor sequences to Milton's poems, particularly those to Paradise Lost and L'Allegro and Il Penseroso, are visually among his finest achievements as an illustrator, the view persists that iconographically they are essentially magnificent pictorial footnotes, in which Blake plays scribe to Milton's prophet. Yet the differences between the two poets both as radicals and as Christians make it seem likely that Blake would have responded to matters as momentous as the fall and redemption of man on his own terms in his pictorial commentaries. These thought-provoking essays take a fresh look at the internal dynamics of each sequence, stressing "horizontal" progressions and iconographic contrasts as well as "vertical" relationships between text and design, and showing how frequently the key to Blake's meaning depends on recognition of his (often subversive) use of traditional pathos formulae. The conclusion they work toward is that Blake is offering "strong," radically deconstructive readings, in the same impishly irreverent spirit he adopted in the Marriage and in Milton. Particularly intriguing from a feminist perspective is that in the larger Paradise Lost series he appears to be exonerating Eve
