More Details..

The Art of John Webster, first published in 1972, is a study of the three extant plays of Webster known to be solely his work. These plays are seen as attempts to achieve in literature the effects of the baroque, a term which related Webster to the larger developments of European art. Their content is analysed in terms of a consistent opposition between evil and the law. The book seeks to re-establish a base for the claims that must be made for Webster as a serious artist. This title will be of interest to students of literature and drama.

More Details..

Hate, malice, rage, and enmity: what would Shakespeare’s plays be without these demonic, unruly passions? This book studies how the tirades and unrestrained villainy of Shakespeare’s art explode the decorum and safety of our sanitized lives and challenge the limits of our selfhood. Everyone knows Shakespeare to be the exemplary poet of love, but how many celebrate his clarifying expressions of hatred? How many of us do not at some time feel that we have come away from his plays transformed by hate and washed clean by savage indignation? Saval fills the great gap in the interpretation of Shakespeare’s unsocial feelings. The book asserts that emotions, as Aristotle claims in the Rhetoric, are connected to judgments. Under such a view, hatred and rage in Shakespeare cease to be a "blinding" of judgment or a loss of reason, but become claims upon the world that can be evaluated and interpreted. The literary criticism of anger and hate provides an alternative vision of the experience of Shakespeare’s theater as an intensification of human experience that takes us far beyond criticism’s traditional contexts of character, culture, and ethics. The volume, which is alive to the judgmental character of emotions, transforms the way we see the rancorous passions and the disorderly and disobedient demands of anger and hatred. Above all, it reminds us why Shakespeare is the exemplary creator of that rare yet pleasurable thing: a good hater. Joining conversations in affect studies and the early modern history of the passions, this book contributes to the growing field of hate studies, dedicated to the interdisciplinary study of hatred.

More Details..

The Routledge Companion to Travel Writing is both the ideal springboard for beginners new to the genre and an important resource for established researchers. Covering a broad range of historical, theoretical and cultural contexts for the study of travel writing, and combining critical surveys with close readings of individual travelogues, the volume provides a prospectus to the genre that reflects the very latest thinking in the field.

The Companion’s four sections look in turn at:

  • Key Debates & Critical Approaches – summarizing crucial debates in the field, and exploring a range of critical methodologies relevant to the study of travel writing
  • Historical Overviews – offering a chronological guide to the travel writing of different periods and cultures
  • Styles, Modes, Themes – providing more detailed analysis of a range of sub-genres and topics within travel writing
  • Imagined Geographies – focusing on travel writing’s depiction, and imaginative mediation, of different regions and topographies around the world.

Covering all the relevant topics and debates, from postcolonial studies and issues of gender and sexuality to visual culture, the travelling body and questions of reception and readership, this is an essential overview of the current state of travel writing studies, which will encourage the field to move in new and exciting directions.

More Details..

From the apparently simple adaptation of a text into film, theatre or a new literary work, to the more complex appropriation of style or meaning, it is arguable that all texts are somehow connected to a network of existing texts and art forms. In this new edition Adaptation and Appropriation explores:

  • multiple definitions and practices of adaptation and appropriation
  • the cultural and aesthetic politics behind the impulse to adapt
  • the global and local dimensions of adaptation
  • the impact of new digital technologies on ideas of making, originality and customization
  • diverse ways in which contemporary literature, theatre, television and film adapt, revise and reimagine other works of art
  • the impact on adaptation and appropriation of theoretical movements, including structuralism, post-structuralism, postcolonialism, postmodernism, feminism and gender studies
  • the appropriation across time and across cultures of specific canonical texts, by Shakespeare, Dickens, and others, but also of literary archetypes such as myth or fairy tale.

Ranging across genres and harnessing concepts from fields as diverse as musicology and the natural sciences, this volume brings clarity to the complex debates around adaptation and appropriation, offering a much-needed resource for those studying literature, film, media or culture.

More Details..

From the apparently simple adaptation of a text into film, theatre or a new literary work, to the more complex appropriation of style or meaning, it is arguable that all texts are somehow connected to a network of existing texts and art forms. In this new edition Adaptation and Appropriation explores:

  • multiple definitions and practices of adaptation and appropriation
  • the cultural and aesthetic politics behind the impulse to adapt
  • the global and local dimensions of adaptation
  • the impact of new digital technologies on ideas of making, originality and customization
  • diverse ways in which contemporary literature, theatre, television and film adapt, revise and reimagine other works of art
  • the impact on adaptation and appropriation of theoretical movements, including structuralism, post-structuralism, postcolonialism, postmodernism, feminism and gender studies
  • the appropriation across time and across cultures of specific canonical texts, by Shakespeare, Dickens, and others, but also of literary archetypes such as myth or fairy tale.

Ranging across genres and harnessing concepts from fields as diverse as musicology and the natural sciences, this volume brings clarity to the complex debates around adaptation and appropriation, offering a much-needed resource for those studying literature, film, media or culture.
