Women and German drama : playwrights and their texts, 1860-1945 by Sarah Colvin( Book )

12 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 533 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book looks in detail at women's playwriting in German between 1860 and 1945, and at its reception by critics. Many of the works considered have never before been analyzed by modern scholarship; others, notably the plays of Marieluise Fleisser and Else Lasker-Schuler, are well known, but are read here for the first time in the context of earlier dramatic work by women. Sarah Colvin seeks modes of reading that do justice both to the dramatic texts as performance texts, and to the sense of "otherness" experienced by the woman writer in a male-dominated literary and theatrical environment. She concludes that an understanding of the techniques developed by women playwrights of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries can enrich our reading not only of Fleisser and Lasker, but of contemporary dramatists such as Jelinek
Ulrike Meinhof and West German terrorism : language, violence, and identity by Sarah Colvin( )

11 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 419 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1970 Ulrike Meinhof abandoned a career as a political journalist to join the Red Army Faction; captured as a terrorist along with other members of the group in 1972, she died an unexplained death in a high-security prison in 1976. A charismatic spokesperson for the RAF, she has often come near to being idealized as a freedom fighter, despite her use and advocacy of extreme violence. In an effort to understand how terrorism takes root, Sarah Colvin seeks a dispassionate view of Meinhof and a period when West Germany was declaring its own "war on terror."" "Ulrike Meinhof always remained a writer, and this book focuses on the role of language in her development and that of the RAF: how Meinhof came to justify violence to the point of murder, creating an identity for the RAF as resistance fighters in an imagined state of war that was reinforced by the state's adoption of what Andreas Musolff has called "war terminology." But its all-powerful identity as a fighting group eroded the RAF's empathy with other human beings - even those it once claimed to be "fighting for." It became a closed unit, self-justifying and immobilized by its own conviction that everything it did must be right. This is the first specialized study of Meinhof and the RAF in English."--Jacket

The rhetorical feminine : gender and orient on the German stage, 1647-1742 by Sarah Colvin( Book )

9 editions published between 1999 and 2004 in English and held by 223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Rhetorical Feminine takes a fresh look at theatreincluding the important new genre of opera - in early modern Germany. Central to this study is the relationship of the stage with ideas of order or social control. Early German school drama was designed to teach rhetoric to boys: a detail which has up to now been accepted by scholars without further questioning. This investigation focuses on how that rhetoric was used, with particular reference to ideas of the feminine and of the islamic world. Both are constructed as the potentially threatening 'others' of early modern patriarchal Christendom. In containing the threat, the stage becomes the controllable version of the early modern theatrum mundi."--Jacket
Women and death 2 : warlike women in the German literary and cultural imagination since 1500( Book )

4 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 173 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Warlike women are a recurring phenomenon in German literature and culture since 1500. Amazons, terrorists, warrior women : this volume of essays analyzes ideas and portrayals of these figures in the visual arts, society, media, and scholarship, always against the backdrop of Germany's development as a culture and as a nation. The contributors look for patterns in the historical portrayal of warlike women, asking the questions: What cultural signals are sent when women are shown occupying men's spaces by dressing as warriors or in men's clothing? What can legitimize the woman who bears arms? From what is the erotic potential of images linking women and violence derived?
