Hunting Cockroaches And Other Plays

Book by Janusz Głowacki, Hunting Cockroaches And Other Plays Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Hunting Cockroaches And Other Plays books, Janusz Glowacki's highly theatrical and often hilarious works concern the immigrant experience of the Eastern European in America, the struggles of the individual in a repressive state, and the manipulations of political and social power. The girls' reform school of Cinders, the Lower East Side tenement of Hunting Cockroaches, and the Norwegian court littered with bodies in Fortinbras Gets Drunk serve as backdrops for Glowacki's tragicomic explorations of the play within the play of contemporary existence.

Cockroach

Book by Marion Copeland, Cockroach Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Cockroach books, "In Cockroach we discover the extraordinary natural history, symbolism and cultural significance of a poorly understood and much-maligned insect. Traditionally, for humans the cockroach has been a loathed pest, a food delicacy and a valued source for cures in folk and homeopathic medicine. As this book shows, the cockroach is nowadays also a subject of great interest to many others, as evidenced by the annual World Championship Cockroach Races held in Brisbane, Australia, for example, or the Cockroach Hall of Fame in Texas. And in addition to the positive roles it has played in a number of recent works of fiction, the cockroach is now a subject of fascination for various graphic artists, modellers and photographers."--BOOK JACKET

Adapting Chekhov

Book by J. Douglas Clayton, Adapting Chekhov Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Adapting Chekhov books, This book considers the hundred years of re-writes of Anton Chekhov's work, presenting a wide geographical landscape of Chekhovian influences in drama. The volume examines the elusive quality of Chekhov's dramatic universe as an intricate mechanism, an engine in which his enigmatic characters exist as the dramatic and psychological ciphers we have been de-coding for a century, and continue to do so. Examining the practice and the theory of dramatic adaptation both as intermedial transformation (from page to stage) and as intramedial mutation, from page to page, the book presents adaptation as the emerging genre of drama, theatre, and film. This trend marks the performative and social practices of the new millennium, highlighting our epoch's need to engage with the history of dramatic forms and their evolution. The collection demonstrates that adaptation as the practice of transformation and as a re-thinking of habitual dramatic norms and genre definitions leads to the rejuvenation of existing dramatic and performative standards, pioneering the creation of new traditions and expectations. As the major mode of the storytelling imagination, adaptation can build upon and drive the audience's horizons of expectations in theatre aesthetics. Hence, this volume investigates the original and transformative knowledge that the story of Chekhov's drama in mutations offers to scholars of drama and performance, to students of modern literatures and cultures, and to theatre practitioners worldwide.

Download Something New Under The Sun An Environmental History Of The Twentieth Century World The Global Century Series books, "Refreshingly unpolemical and at times even witty, McNeill's book brims with carefully sifted statistics and brilliant details."—Washington Post Book World The history of the twentieth century is most often told through its world wars, the rise and fall of communism, or its economic upheavals. In his startling new book, J. R. McNeill gives us our first general account of what may prove to be the most significant dimension of the twentieth century: its environmental history. To a degree unprecedented in human history, we have refashioned the earth's air, water, and soil, and the biosphere of which we are a part. Based on exhaustive research, McNeill's story—a compelling blend of anecdotes, data, and shrewd analysis—never preaches: it is our definitive account. This is a volume in The Global Century Series (general editor, Paul Kennedy).
