Quest Motif in the Novels of Evelyn Waugh
59,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

QUEST MOTIF IN THE NOVELS OF EVELYN WAUGH: A JOURNEY WITH PASSION AND PURPOSE is a lucid account of the fiction of Evelyn Waugh, the British comic genius. Ranked alongside P.G.Wodehouse and Shaw for his comic brilliance, Waugh was the enfant terrible of the Thirties of the last century. All through his fiction runs an earnest quest for purpose and meaning. A prolific writer of novels--romantic, satirical and catholic-- journals and reviews, he is regarded as a master of style. His works are varied and offer glimpses of a keen, searching mind behind the comic facade. Along with Graham Greene, he strove to revive Catholic fiction. In Brideshead Revisited, through the persona of the proletarian junior officer Hooper, Waugh depicts the rise of mediocrity in the Age of the Common Man. This book presents a comprehensive picture of Waugh s fiction as a quest for vocation and refuge which he finds in Roman Catholicism. Waugh s novels retain freshness even now as does his uncompromising quest. His fiction is noted for its intense focus and single-minded pursuit of a haven of peace in a crazy , materialistic universe.

Steven Berkoff and the Theatre of Self-Performance
32,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Steven Berkoff is the playwright, director and actor whom theatre scholars have chosen largely to disregard. Since the 1960's, however, this notorious Cockney enfant terrible and 'scourge of the Shakespeare industry' has left an imprint on modern British theatre that has been impossible to ignore. This is the first thorough and in-depth study of this contentious artist, and examines the wide-ranging strategies adopted by Berkoff in the construction and projection of his larger-than-life public persona. This book is not a traditional biography but a critical investigation into the dynamic processes involved in the self-mythologisation of a theatre artist famously concerned with laying himself bare in his plays and performances. Robert Cross examines all of Berkoff's published works, and also examines his film performances, his close self-identification with iconic individuals, his ambiguous relationship with Thatcherism and his use of his East End working-class Jewish background. With its unique interdisciplinary approach, this book not only fills a large gap in theatre scholarship but also contributes a great deal to our understanding, in the post modern era, of the role of performance in identity formation.

The Damned United
21,90 CHF *
zzgl. 3,50 CHF Versand

When Don Revie took over this club, Leeds were a rugby league town. No interest in football. Gates under 10,000. We’d never won a thing. He built one of the great clubs of English football, one of the great teams of English football, from scratch on barren ground from nothing more than spirit and fight and nous, which are the exact same qualities you used at Derby. And out of jealousy, you never tried to understand that. Never tried to make the most of that. Sad. 1974. Brian Clough, the enfant terrible of British football, tries to redeem his managerial career and reputation by winning the European Cup with his new team, Leeds United. The team he has openly despised for years, the team he hates and that hates him. Don Revie’s Leeds. A West Yorkshire Playhouse and Red Ladder Theatre Company co-production, adapted from David Peace’s ingenious and much-lauded novel, which was subsequently made into a film starring Michael Sheen, The Damned United takes you inside the tortured mind of a genius slamming up against his limits, and brings to life the beauty and brutality of football, the working man’s ballet. Anders Lustgarten's stage adaptation of David Peace's novel received its world premiere at the West Yorkshire Playhouse on 3 March 2016.
