Abrams, OUP. 1953, p.119,121 "The demands of metre allow the poet to say something which is not normal colloquial English, so that the reader thinks of the various colloquial forms which are near to it, and puts them together; weighting their probabilities in proportion to their nearness", William Empson, "Seven Types of Ambiguity" "Its verses are the liquid, billowy waves, ... always moving, always alike in their nature as rolling waves, but hardly are two exactly alike in size or measure (meter), never having the sense of something finished and fixed, always suggesting something beyond", Whitman, in "With Walt Whitman in Camden", Traubel. "The purpose of rhythm, it has always seemed to me, is to prolong the moment of contemplation, the moment when we are both asleep and awake", Yeats "The regular meter of formal poets is not a dull mechanical ticking, like a clock's; it coalesces out of the rhythms of randomly jotted phrases through a process of 'phase-locking'", Paul Lake in "The Measured Word", Kurt Brown (ed), Univ of Georgia Press, 2001, p.169 "most of the beauty of the lines and all their variety is gained by the skill with which the woof of speech-rhythm is continually thrown athwart the warp of the metrical type", Henry Newbolt, 1912 "The difference between the pattern of the line as speech and as metre is often recognised today as tension and is usually highly prized", Thompson, "The Founding of English Metre", Routledge, 1961, p.7 "The neo-formalists' perhaps unconscious exaltation of the iamb veils their attempt to privilege prevailing white Anglo-Saxon rhythms and culture", Ida Sadoff, Neo-Formalism: A Dangerous Nostalgia, APR, Jan 1990, p.8 "The purpose of rhythm, it has always seemed to me, is to prolong the moment of contemplation - the moment when we are both asleep and awake, which is the one moment of creation- by hushing us with an alluring monotony, while it holds us waking by variety", Yeats, "The Yeats Reader", edited by Richard J.

Text and context are less clearly distinct in New Historicist practice. Traditional separations of literary and non-literary texts, "great" literature and popular literature, are also fundamentally challenged. For the "New Historicist," all acts of expression are embedded in the material conditions of a culture. Texts are examined with an eye for how they reveal the economic and social realities, especially as they produce ideology and represent power or subversion epub.

The action takes place exclusively forestage, and basic set elements - desks, tables and so on - are swung on rapidly by the cast between scenes, a decision which, aside from being practical, subtly achieves the sense of schoolroom chaos between lessons. The stage is bisected by a kind of grid, down which screens, mirrors and whiteboards can be slid to create a constantly changing counter-text to the action German Expressionist Theatre: The Actor and the Stage download pdf.

But when we look for such deeds in the play, what we find on both sides are acts of questionable valor at best (as when Hector, having challenged the Greeks to find a combatant to uphold their honor as lovers, breaks off a hand-to-hand duel with Ajax on the grounds that they are cousins) and downright cowardice at worst (as when Achilles, having come upon Hector at a moment when he has removed his armor to rest, merely summons his Myrmidons to slaughter the champion of the Trojans) Chivalric Festivals at the Ferrarese Court of Alfonso II D'Este (Stage and Screen Studies,)

There are many modern theatre movements which go about producing theatre in a variety of ways ref.: Five and Eighty Hamlets read for free Title page An admirable summary of the tendencies in modern drama; to use the author's words: "A clear view of current developments in dramatic literature." Professor Hughes divides his subject into two epochs: i Pre-war drama; 2 Post-war drama. He discusses the first epoch under five general types: i Realistic (exemplified in Ibsen); 2 Naturalistic (origin in Zola and Becque); 3 Sym- bolism (exemplified in Maeterlinck); 4 Romance (in the dramas of Rostand, D'Annunzio, Phillips, etc.); Folk drama (found at best in Irish plays of Synge, Yeats, and Lady Gregory) , e.g. Prologues and Epilogues of Restoration Theater: Gender and Comedy, Performance and Print If Venus and Adonis is most aptly approached as a quasi-comic treatment of love (depicting the frustrations of an insatiate goddess who falls all over herself as she fumbles to seduce an unresponsive youth), despite the fact that it ends with the death of the innocent young mortal, Lucrece is more properly described as a tragic "complaint," a moving exploration of the personal and social consequences of a noble Roman's surrender to lust, against his better nature and at the cost, ultimately, of both his victim's life and his own An Actor's Work: A Student's Diary Cars had been changing sex since the 1920s, but by the 50s, more teenagers had access to cars than ever before, giving them the privacy they craved on a regular basis.
