This book demonstrates the political potential of mainstream theatre in the US at the end of the twentieth century, tracing ideological change over time in the reception of US mainstream plays taking HIV/AIDS as their topic from 1985 to 2000. This is the first study to combine the topics of the politics of performance, LGBT theatre, and mainstream theatre’s political potential, a juxtaposition that shows how radical ideas become mainstream, that is, how the dominant ideology changes. Using materialist semiotics and extensive archival research, Juntunen delineates the cultural history of four pivotal productions from that period—Larry Kramer’s The Normal Heart (1985), Tony Kushner’s Angels in America (1992), Jonathan Larson’s Rent (1996), and Moises Kaufman’s The Laramie Project (2000). Examining the connection between AIDS, mainstream theatre, and the media reveals key systems at work in ideological change over time during a deadly epidemic whose effects changed the nation forever. Employing media theory alongside nationalism studies and utilizing dozens of reviews for each case study, the volume demonstrates that reviews are valuable evidence of how a production was hailed by society’s ideological gatekeepers. Mixing this new use of reviews alongside textual analysis and material study—such as the theaters’ locations, architectures, merchandise, program notes, and advertising—creates an uncommonly rich description of these productions and their ideological effects. This book will be of interest to scholars and students of theatre, politics, media studies, queer theory, and US history, and to those with an interest in gay civil rights, one of the most successful social movements of the late twentieth century.

What happened to the plague of HIV/AIDS that once seemed so threatening? Gabriele Griffin argues that the explosion of HIV/AIDS into highly visible cultural forms, from movies, theatre, activist interventions, and art from the late-1980s to the mid-1990s has been replaced by a retreat to artisitic invisibility. Griffin suggests that changes in the understanding of HIV/AIDS, the shift from “dying of the disease” to “living with it” in Western cultures, and a failure to grasp the full extent of the growth and impact of HIV/AIDS in a number of African and Asian countries has led to the “death” of the disease in the Western media.

Der Flussdampferkapitän Marlow reist im Auftrag einer belgischen Handelskompanie tief in den Kongo. Auf seiner Reise erlebt er unverständliche Wirrnisse, Sinnlosigkeit und eine unvorstellbare Ausbeutung der Schwarzen. Die Reise den Fluss entlang entwickelt sich immer mehr zur Reise in sein eigenes unbewusstes Inneres. Marlow trifft auf den berühmt-berüchtigten und angeblich besonders erfolgreichen Elfenbein-Agenten Kurtz. Kurtz hat auf seinem Handelsposten, von der Handelsgesellschaft als "leuchtfeuer auf der Straße zum Besseren" beabsichtigt, ein Zentrum des Bösen und eine machtvolle Position etabliert. Vermeintlich unter dem schädlichen Einfluss der Wildnis hat er sich den in ihm selber existierenden Verrohungstendenzen hingegeben und geht darin unter. Marlow verfälscht seine letzten Worte ("das Grauen! Das Grauen!"), um sie Kurtz' Braut als letzten Gruß zu überbringen.

The long-awaited new novel by America's master playwright and activist—a radical reimagining of our history and our hopes and fears Forty years in the making, The American People embodies Larry Kramer's vision of his beloved and accursed homeland. As the founder of ACT UP and the author of Faggots and The Normal Heart, Kramer has decisively affected American lives and letters. Here, as only he can, he tells the heartbreaking and heroic story of one nation under a plague, contaminated by greed, hate, and disease yet host to transcendent acts of courage and kindness. In this magisterial novel's sweeping first volume, which runs up to the 1950s, we meet prehistoric monkeys who spread a peculiar virus, a Native American shaman whose sexual explorations mutate into occult visions, and early English settlers who live as loving same-sex couples only to fall victim to the forces of bigotry. George Washington and Alexander Hamilton revel in unexpected intimacies, and John Wilkes Booth's motives for assassinating Abraham Lincoln are thoroughly revised. In the twentieth century, the nightmare of history deepens as a religious sect conspires with eugenicists, McCarthyites, and Ivy Leaguers to exterminate homosexuals, and the AIDS virus begins to spread. Against all this, Kramer sets the tender story of a middle-class family outside Washington, D.C., trying to get along in the darkest of times. The American People is a work of ribald satire, prophetic anger, and dazzling imagination. It is an encyclopedic indictment written with outrageous love.

Zwischen 1863 und 1869 schuf Leo Tolstoi dieses Werk, das in seiner erzählerischen Breite auf bis dahin unerreicht kunstfertige Weise einen Historien-, Familien- und Bildungsroman vereinte. Hintergrund ist der Krieg zwischen Russland und Frankreich. Der mit über 200 Figuren überreich bevölkerte Roman schildert die Schicksale dreier Familien über mehrere Generationen hinweg. Tolstoi spring kunstvoll zwischen familiären, privaten Szenen und der Schilderung von Schlachten und kriegerischen Manövergesprächen hin und her und bietet so ein einen einmaligen Einblick in die russisch-aristokratische Seelenlage der damaligen Zeit. Das Buch ist psychologischer Spiegel und kulturphilosophisches Brennglas in einem. Der geschickte Aufbau des Buches und die sprachlich bis ins Letzte ausgefeilte Intensität ließen Tolstois Werk schnell zu einem Klassiker von Weltrang werden. »O Himmel, welch heftiger Überfall!« erwiderte der Fürst, ohne durch diesen Empfang in Aufregung zu geraten. Der Fürst trug die goldgestickte Uniform des Hofes mit Ordenssternen, seidene Strümpfe und Schnallenschuhe. Sein Gesicht zeigte beständig ein liebenswürdiges Lächeln. Er sprach Französisch, jenes gewählte Französisch, in dem unsere Großväter nicht nur sprachen, sondern auch dachten, und in dem gemessenen, herablassenden Ton eines einflußreichen Würdenträgers, der am Hofe alt geworden ist. Er näherte sich Anna Pawlowna, küßte ihr die Hand, indem er sein kahles, parfümiertes Haupt neigte, und ließ sich dann bequem auf einem Sofa nieder. »Vor allem, verehrte Freundin, beruhigen Sie mich über den Zustand Ihrer Gesundheit«, fuhr er in galantem Tone fort, der aber nicht frei von Spott war.
