History of European Drama and Theatre

Erika Fischer-Lichte, Freie Universitaet Berlin, Germany

This major study reconstructs the vast history of European Drama from Greek tragedy through to twentieth-century theatre, focusing on the subject of identity. Throughout history, drama has performed and represented political, religious, national, ethnic, class-related, gendered, and individual concepts of identity. Erika Fischer-Lichte's topics include:

  • ancient Greek theatre
  • Shakespearean and Elizabethan theatre
  • the classical age of French theatre, Corneille, Racine and Moliere
  • the Italian commedia dell'arte and its transformations into eighteenth-century drama
  • the German Enlightenment - Lessing, Schiller, Goethe, and Lenz
  • Romanticism by Kleist, Byron, Shelley, Hugo, de Vigny, Musset, Buchner, and Nestroy
  • the turn of the century - Ibsen, Strindberg, Chekhov, Stanislayski
  • the twentieth century - Craig, Meyerhold, Artaud, O'Neill, Pirandello, Brecht, Beckett, Muller.

Makers of Modern Theatre

Robert Leach

Who were the giants of the twentieth-century stage, and exactly how did they influence modern theatre?
The key theatre-makers who shaped the drama of the last century are Konstantin Stanislaysky, Vsevolod Meyerhold, Bertolt Brecht, and Antonin Artaud. Robert Leach's Makers of Modern Theatre is the first detailed introduction to the work of these practitioners. In it, Leach focuses on the major issues which relate to their dominance of theatre history:

  • What was the nature of their life and times?
  • What are they most clearly remembered for / what is their main legacy?
  • What were their dramatic philosophies and practices? • How have their ideas been adapted since their deaths?
  • What are the current critical perspectives on their work?

Never has so much essential information on the making of twentieth century theatre been compiled in one brilliantly concise, beautifully written, illustrated book. This is an enormously helpful, genuinely insightful volume, by on of the foremost theatre historians of our own age.

Stillness in Motion in the New Seventeenth-Century Theatre

P.A. Skantze

Stillness in Motion in the Seventeenth-Century Theatre provides a comprehensive examination of this aesthetic theory. The author investigates this aesthetic history as a form of artistic creation, philosophical investigation, a way of representing and manipulating ideas about gender and a way of acknowledging, reinforcing and making a critique of social values for the still and moving, the permanent and elapsing. The book's analysis covers the entire seventeenth century with chapters on the work of Ben Jonson, John Milton, the pamphle theatre, Aphrat Behn, John Vanbrugh and Jeremy Collier and will be of interest to scholars in the areas of literary and performance studies.
