Release Date: 1998
Genre: Art

Harlequin, Columbine, Pierrot ... commedia dell'arte is the first modern theater -- inspiration to Shakespeare Moliere, Mozart, and Balanchine, and forerunner of the modern stage comedy. This unique book traces the history of commedia from the court of the Sun King to ballet and opera to the experimental performance theater of today. It also, for the first time, explores why visual artists from Tiepolo and Watteau to Picasso and Hockney have been drawn to its characters and themes. Since its invention as a popular entertainment in Renaissance Italy, commedia's absurd and witty plots and charming personalities have captivated audiences as well as painters and sculptors. Artists through the ages have found in commedia's distinctive costumes, masks, and poignant figures a wealth of inspiration. Lynne Lawner unearths rare plays, relates theatrical gossip, and shows why commedia's characters and their classic stories have come to life again and again, in myriad styles of theater and art.

GLASS MOON OVER IMAGES OF SAND

Author: Edel Romay
Publisher: Palibrio
ISBN: 9781463338299
Release Date: 2012-09-27
Genre: Fiction

Glass Moon Over Images of Sand presents a collage of brief narratives woven to stir the imagination. In these pieces, the author creates absurd realism—the coexistence of the absurd within what people call human reality. This book speaks to its readers with real fiction of edited memories. This collection of short narratives exposes readers to contemplate yesterday as a dream. Romay describes it as something like what some writers experience within that encounter with absence when they internalize themselves into a sheet of blank paper in the present progressive digital world. Unquestionably, that “yesterday” that once was “today” is suspended in that labyrinth of memory. After all, this narrative subscribes to the premise that “Reality only exists in language.” The reason is that the reality of this work manifests itself if readers continue to read it—offering more than one reading.
