Shakespeare s The Tempest

Author: William Shakespeare
Publisher: Algora Publishing
ISBN: 1628940255
Release Date: 2013
Genre: Drama

'The Tempest', a short and juicy play, encapsulates many of the dramatic elements that delight admirers of the Shakespearean oeuvre: betrayal, good spirits, evil relations, loyal friends, dramatic plot twists, terrible weather and, of course, love. The play is entertaining and introduces timeless themes such as redemption, the nature of the soul, magic and the supernatural, and art's imitation of life (and vice versa). The story itself shows us the essence of the traditional Italian commedia dell'arte. Yet Shakespeare perplexes many modern readers. Students in English classes across the country are asked to read literature which is, in essence, written in a foreign language. This modern English translation is not only accurate but is also fluid and natural, allowing it to easily be read on its own or performed on stage. The original five-act structure has been preserved, with a one-to-one correspondence between each original line and each translated line. As opposed to word-by-word translations or annotated versions of the original script, the present book provides a natural language translation.

OuterSpeares

Author: Daniel Fischlin
Publisher: University of Toronto Press
ISBN: 9781442669376
Release Date: 2014-11-05
Genre: Drama

For Shakespeare and Shakespearean adaptation, the global digital media environment is a “brave new world” of opportunity and revolution. In OuterSpeares: Shakespeare, Intermedia, and the Limits of Adaptation, noted scholars of Shakespeare and new media consider the ways in which various media affect how we understand Shakespeare and his works. Daniel Fischlin and his collaborators explore a wide selection of adaptations that occupy the space between and across traditional genres – what artist Dick Higgins calls “intermedia” – ranging from adaptations that use social networking, cloud computing, and mobile devices to the many handicrafts branded and sold in connection with the Bard. With essays on YouTube and iTunes, as well as radio, television, and film, OuterSpeares is the first book to examine the full spectrum of past and present adaptations, and one that offers a unique perspective on the transcultural and transdisciplinary aspects of Shakespeare in the contemporary world.

Acting Shakespeare is Outrageous

Author: Herb Parker
Publisher: Taylor & Francis
ISBN: 9781351816441
Release Date: 2017-07-06
Genre: Performing Arts

Performing the work of William Shakespeare can be daunting to new actors. Author Herb Parker posits that his work is played easier if actors think of the plays as happening out of outrageous situations, and remember just how non-realistic and presentational Shakespeare’s plays were meant to be performed. The plays are driven by language and the spoken word, and the themes and plots are absolutely out of the ordinary and fantastic—the very definition of outrageous. With exercises, improvisations, and coaching points, Acting Shakespeare is Outrageous! helps actors use the words Shakespeare wrote as a tool to perform him, and to create exciting and moving performances.
