Chekhov's plays : an opening into eternity by Richard Gilman( Book )

13 editions published between 1995 and 1997 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,224 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Richard Gilman examines each of Chekhov's full-length plays, showing how they relate to each other, to Chekhov's short stories, and to his life. He also places the plays in the context of Russian and European drama and the larger culture of the period. Gilman interweaves biographical narrative with textual commentary and with a discussion of stage-craft and dramaturg - Chekhov's techniques for influencing viewers, the scenic framing of the action, and issues of genre and temporal structuring. Although previous critics of Chekhov have tended to view him as an essentially social dramatist or as an observer of the smaller aspects of existence, Gilman asserts that Chekhov was far more of an innovative playwright, a revolutionary, than has been seen."--Jacket

5 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 326 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Presented here is the first collection in more than three decades of the writings of one of America's finest drama critics. Richard Gilman chronicles a major period in American theater history - the 1960s to the 1990s - which witnessed the birth or spread of Off-Broadway, regional theater, nonprofit companies, and avantgarde performance, as well as growing interest in plays by women and minorities and in world drama. His writing, however, is more than a revealing look at an era. It is criticism for the ages."--Jacket

The Playwright as Thinker : a Study of Drama in Modern Times by Eric Bentley( Book )

5 editions published between 1987 and 2010 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in 1946, The Playwright as Thinker is a classic work of drama criticism that helped create the intellectual environment in which serious American theater would thrive in the second half of the twentieth century. At the time of publishing, most drama critics believed dramatic art deserved no intellectual status; Eric Bentley set out to prove them wrong. Focusing on the canonic playwrights Strindberg, Ibsen, Pirandello, Sartre, and Brecht, Bentley viewed the playwright as thinker, and his survey of over 150 years of dramatic art provided, in essence, an intellectual history of Eu

In search of cinema : writings on international film art by Bert Cardullo( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Search of Cinema chronicles the vitality of international film art in the last two decades. At a time when the movie review has degenerated into mere publicity for Hollywood pictures and film scholarship has become entangled in its own pseudo-scientific discourse, Bert Cardullo reclaims the territory of a certain type of film critic, somewhere between a reviewer-journalist and a scholar-theorist. With elegance, clarity, and rigour, he offers close readings of individual films to show how moviemakers use the resources of the medium to pursue complex, significant human goals
