The drama of the double : permeable boundaries by Katherine H Burkman( Book )

10 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 106 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book explores the way in which doubling takes place in several novels, films, and dramas, primarily focusing on modern drama and exploring how five Greek myths ℓ́ℓ Oedipus, Narcissus, Dionysus, Orestes, and Demeter ℓ́ℓ inform the literature. Taking a psychological/mythical approach, this book explores the inner divisions that lead to boundary loss and the search for the self that may lead to boundaries found. The contention of the book is that the oedipal search for self has been replaced in modern literature by individuals caught up in a narcissistic culture. Katherine H. Burkman explores plays by Aeschylus, Sophocles, Euripides, Henrik Ibsen, Eugene O'Neill, Samuel Beckett, Harold Pinter, David Mamet, Sam Shepard, Marsha Norman, and Will Eno

April cruel by Katherine H Burkman( Book )

2 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Set in the 1970's at a small college in Pennsylvania, April Cruel proves T.S. Eliot right: "April is the cruelest month." When the rigid and rather unpleasant professor, Erica Berne, discovers that her fiance has been murdered, she not only is grief-stricken, but she also becomes the victim of several murder attempts that misfire and kill or harm others. Two young professors in the English department, Jim Strand and David Stein, attempt to uncover the perpetrator of the crimes, along with one of David's students, Jill Lake, with whom he has fall in love and Susie Marsh, a departmental secretary for whom Jim has a growing affection. Detective Norman Halloway is also seeking the killer, and since so many have grudges against Erica Berne, there are motives aplenty. Are the murders connected in any way with the death of Professor Berne's former fiance? Has she so offended other students and teachers that they have decided to eliminate her? What kind of hold does she have over the chariman of the department, Wilfred Black? Will hysterical parents force the closing of Huston college so near the end of the semester? And why does Jill Lake feel that she is herself in terrible danger?

Rank, Ibsen, and O'Neill : birth trauma and creative will in selected dramas by Maureen F Voigt( )

2 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study uses the birth trauma and creative will theories of Otto Rank to analyze the characters in selected plays of Henrik Ibsen and Eugene O'Neill. It also applies these theories to the artists' lives. Rank believes that anxiety originates at birth when infants are separated from their mothers. Throughout life, people both yearn to return to the womb and yet fear reliving the pain of separation
The performance of folly in plays by O'Neill, Williams, and Shepard by Robert Brian Conklin( )

2 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study examines the function of the fool or trickster in selected dramas of O'Neill, Williams, and Shepard: Emperor Jones, Marco Millions, and Iceman Cometh; Streetcar Named Desire, Rose Tattoo, Camino Real; and Tooth of Crime, True West, and Fool for Love. Traditionally, the fool is marginal, on the sidelines of the drama. The fool in these American dramas, however, is an unlicensed figure. As the fool in these plays assumes a more authoritative part, he or she brings into question the problem of performative power. By focusing on on-stage performance situations, in which the fool is a verbal performer, one may gain insight into the playwright's concerns about the relationship between actor and audience
Disembodied and re-embodied voices : the figure of echo in American gothic texts by Katherine Piller Beutel( )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In examining disembodied and re-embodied voices in William Faulkner's As I Lay Dying, Flannery O'Connor's The Violent Bear it Away, and Toni Morrison's Beloved, the dissertation places these texts in a Gothic tradition and uses the mythological figure of Echo as a metaphor for subversive, usually feminine voices that refuse suppression and live on beyond death and for voices that blend and merge through repetition among characters. The three novels are related to some traditional Gothic texts (such as The Monk, Wieland, Melmoth, The Wanderer, and Dracula), which use disembodied voices to unsettle readers, to question notions of identity, death, and corporeal presence, to explore relationships between voice and authority, and to show "self" as not distinct, autonomous, or permanent
Toward a more cohesive self : women in the works of Lillian Hellman and Marsha Norman by Linda Ginter Brown( )

1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In the work of both playwrights the women suffer because a sense of power is denied them by their lack of choices regarding the way in which they can define themselves. With Hellman, this suffering manifests itself in a rage which is either turned inward upon the self, whereby no sense of cohesion can be achieved, or it is directed outward toward others, whereby close relationships are destroyed. With Norman, the women have more firmly established identities and move toward more fully integrated selves
No-thing is more real than nothing Zen/Chaos Theory in the Dramatic Art of Samuel Beckett by John L Kundert-Gibbs( )
