Shakespeare's four-hundred-year performance history is full of anecdotes ? ribald, trivial, frequently funny, sometimes disturbing, and always but loosely allegiant to fact. Such anecdotes are nevertheless a vital index to the ways that Shakespeare's plays have generated meaning across varied times and in varied places. Furthermore, particular plays have produced particular anecdotes ? stories of a real skull in Hamlet, superstitions about the name Macbeth, toga troubles in Julius Caesar ? and therefore express something embedded in the plays they attend. Anecdotes constitute then not just a vital component of a play's performance history but a form of vernacular criticism by the personnel most intimately involved in their production: actors. These anecdotes are therefore every bit as responsive to and expressive of a play's meanings across time as the equally rich history of Shakespearean criticism or indeed the very performances these anecdotes treat. Anecdotal Shakespeare provides a history of post-Renaissance Shakespeare and performance, one not based in fact but no less full of truth.

Shakespearean performance criticism has undergone a sea change in recent years, and strong tides of discovery are continuing to shift the contours of the discipline. The essays in this volume, written by scholars from around the world, reveal how these critical cross-currents are influencing the ways we now view Shakespeare in performance. The volume is organised in four Parts. Part I interrogates how Shakespeare continues to achieve contemporaneity for Western audiences by exploring modes of performance, acting styles, and aesthetic choices regarded as experimental. Part II tackles the burgeoning field of reception: how and why audiences respond to performances as they do, or actors to the conditions in which they perform; how immersive productions turn spectators into actors; how memory and cognition shape and reshape the performances we think we saw. Part III addresses the ways in which revolutions in technology have altered our views of Shakespeare, both through the mediums of film and sound recording, and through digitalizing processes that have generated a profound reconsideration of what performance is and how it is accessed. The final Part grapples with intercultural Shakespeare, considering not only matters of cultural hegemony and appropriation in a 'global' importation of non-Western productions to Europe and North America, but also how Shakespeare has been made 'local' in performances staged or filmed in African, Asian, and Latin American countries. Together, these ground-breaking essays attest to the richness and diversity of Shakespearean performance criticism as it is practiced today, and they point the way to critical continents not yet explored.

Romeo und Julia - die Namen stehen längst für einen Mythos, den Mythos der tragischen Leidenschaft. Die Geschichte hat unzählige Nachahmer gefunden, und der Aufruhr der Gefühle darin gehört heute, trivialisiert und ausschnittsweise, zum Repertoire nicht weniger Seifenopern - der tödliche Zwist zweier Familien; der Blitzschlag der unerlaubten Liebe zwischen den Kindern dieser Häuser; das Ungestüm und die Zärtlichkeit, mit denen sich beide dieser Liebe versichern; der Todesmut, mit dem Julia in den Plan einwilligt, sich als Scheintote 'entführen' zu lassen, um damit einer anderweitigen Vermählung zu entgehen und Romeo nachzufolgen. Und dann natürlich die tragischste aller Szenen, der Liebestod - Romeo, durch einen fatalen Zufall nur unzureichend über den Plan informiert, glaubt Julia tot und vergiftet sich in ihrer Gruft; Julia erwacht und ersticht sich mit Romeos Dolch. Das alles scheint eher romantisch als elisabethanisch, und durch die gewohnte Brille des 19. Jahrhunderts (als das Stück als Tragödie zum großen Erfolg wurde, während man es im 18. ohne Bedenken auch mal glücklich enden ließ) sehen wir heute noch jene 'große Liebe', die von der 'Gesellschaft' nicht gewollt wird. Shakespeare aber erfand zu seiner Zeit mit 'Romeo und Julia' etwas völlig Unbekanntes - die erste englische Liebestragödie.

This revised edition of the Arden Shakespeare Complete Works includes the full text of Double Falsehood, which was published in the Arden Third series to critical acclaim in 2010. The play is an eighteenth century rewrite of Shakespeare's "lost" play Cardenio and as such is a fascinating testament to the original. A short introduction outlines its complex textual history and the arguments for including it within the Shakespeare canon. The Complete Works contains the texts of all Shakespeare's plays, poems and sonnets, edited by leading Shakespeare scholars for the renowned Arden series. A general introduction gives the reader an overall view of how and why Shakespeare has become such an influential cultural icon, and how perceptions of his work have changed in the intervening four centuries. The introduction summarises the known facts about the dramatist's life, his reading and use of sources, and the nature of theatrical performance during his lifetime. Brief introductions to each play, written specially for this volume by the Arden General Editors, discuss the date and contemporary context of the play, its position within Shakespeare's oeuvre, and its subsequent performance history. An extensive glossary explains vocabulary which may be unfamiliar to modern readers.

Examining the work of the Elizabethan playwright, Robert Greene, this book argues that Greene's plays are innovative in their use of spectacle. Its most striking feature is the use of the one-to-one analogies between Greene's drama and modern cinema, in order to explore the plays' stage effects.

Ein echter Bill Bryson: eloquent, klug und mit einem Augenzwinkern geschrieben.
