Troilus and Cressida by William Shakespeare( Book )

4 editions published between 1928 and 1998 in English and German and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Troilus and Cressida, long considered one of Shakespeare's most problematic plays, is both difficult and fascinating. Largely neglected during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, it has recently proved popular and rewarding on the stage as well as in the study. This edition questions certain received ideas about the play's text, especially the relationship between Quarto and Folio, and offers several new readings of old problems. Dawson's textual choices are often surprising but at the same time carefully grounded. He views the play from a performance perspective - frequently in the Commentary as well as in the detailed section on stage history in the Introduction. The Introduction also covers the cultural context in which the play was written, probes the controversy about its early performance, and provides extensive analysis of character, language, genre, and contemporary significance."--Jacket

In the early days of the cinema, pioneer filmmakers created these seven charming films based on the plays of William Shakespeare. Considered a "lowbrow" medium, the fledgling movie industry sought to elevate its status by immortalizing the classics and hiring the actors of the day. Most of these early photoplays were only one or two reels long but whatever they gave up in language and length, they made up for in exuberance, cinematic artistry, visual wit and bravura acting. Some films feature original hand-stenciled color

Venedig, Ende des 16. Jahrhunderts. Aus Freundschaft zu dem frisch verliebten, aber hoch verschuldeten Aristokraten Bassanio lässt sich Kaufmann Antonio auf einen ungewöhnlichen Handel mit dem jüdischen Geldverleiher Shylock ein. Für einen Kredit von 3.000 Dukaten bürgt Antonio, der sich baldiger Einnahmen durch ausgelaufene Handelsschiffe sicher ist, mit einem Pfund seines eigenen Fleisches. Mit diesem Geld kann Bassanio jetzt angemessen um die Hand von Portia werben. Die Schönheit und ihr Verehrer lieben sich, doch der Besiegelung des Glücks steht eine Klausel von Portias verstorbenem Vater im Wege. Während er dem Glück ganz nahe kommt, wird ein anderer davon verlassen. Antonio verliert auf See sein Vermögen, kann seine Schulden nicht begleichen. Jetzt sieht der verbitterte Shylock seine Stunde gekommen, sich für ein Leben der Demütigungen und Diskriminierungen zu rächen... (Quelle: Homepage des Verlags)

Othello by William Shakespeare( Visual )

3 editions published between 1992 and 1999 in Undetermined and English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Venice during 1570, Desdemona, daughter of a powerful nobleman, elopes with Othello, a proud Moor celebrated as the city's most awesome warrior. Iago, who has served alongside Othello for a decade, is angered when the general chooses another lieutenant, Cassio, as his second in command. In retribution, Iago sabotages Cassio's promotion and convinces Othello that the handsome officer is cuckolding him. Othello writhes under the tortures Iago has created, and in a fit of jealousy smothers Desdemona, who caresses her beloved husband as she dies. Unfortunately, as adapted by director Parker, this is Shakespeare Lite, a primer for those who refuse to wrap themselves in his poetry, but do want to know what happened. The result is a movie that will not give viewers much of an idea of Shakespeare's play, and may inadvertently lead to ideas about interracial love that were not much on Shakespeare's mind. The audience must think, "There, but for the grace of God, go we," or the production has not worked
