The Oxford handbook of the Georgian theatre, 1737-1832( Book )

11 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 312 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Oxford Handbook of the Georgian Theatre 1737-1832 provides an essential guide to theatre in Britain between the passing of the Stage Licensing Act in 1737 and the Reform Act of 1832 -- a period of drama long neglected but now receiving significant scholarly attention. Written by specialists from a range of disciplines, its forty essays both introduce students and scholars to the key texts and contexts of the Georgian theatre and also push the boundaries of the field, asking questions that will animate the study of drama in the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries for years to come. The Handbook gives equal attention to the range of dramatic forms -- not just tragedy and comedy, but the likes of melodrama and pantomime -- as they developed and overlapped across the period, and to the occasions, communities, and materialities of theatre production. It includes sections on historiography, the censorship and regulation of drama, theatre and the Romantic canon, women and the stage, and the performance of race and empire. In doing so, the Handbook shows the centrality of theatre to Georgian culture and politics, and paints a picture of a stage defined by generic fluidity and experimentation; by networks of performance that spread far beyond London; by professional women who played pivotal roles in every aspect of production; and by its complex mediation of contemporary attitudes of class, race, and gender."--Publisher's description

Glorious causes : the grand theatre of political change, 1789 to 1833 by Julia Swindells( Book )

8 editions published between 2001 and 2005 in English and held by 294 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Glorious Causes explores the politics of theatricality and the theatricality of politics in late Georgian Britain, at a time when the British nation can be described as a stage for reform. 1832 is particularly significant for legislation in relation to both the drama and the parliamentary franchise. In many ways, though, the forces of change date back to the later part of the eighteenth-century, and were set in motion by powerful liberation movements, not only in France and North America, but in Britain itself. Particularly important, in addition to agitation for the vote, were the movements for abolition of the slave trade and slave emancipation, the attempt to improve conditions in the factory, resistance to the exploitation of agricultural workers and, not least, the early struggle for women's rights. Political rhetoric was characterized by a rich vocabulary, drawing on theatrical language and forms, from melodrama and tragedy, to comedy and burlesque. Most importantly, activity in the theatres themselves, often dismissed until recently as vulgar or sentimental, was highly charged with political dynamic and controversy, central to the drama of reform."--Jacket
The uses of autobiography by Julia Swindells( Book )

13 editions published between 1995 and 2014 in English and held by 273 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Autobiography is commonly understood in terms of giving readers insight into the private lives of unique individuals, but in recent years the autobiographical project has absorbed a surprisingly wide variety of social concerns." "The contributors to this book, writing from a variety of subject disciplines and interests, explore a range of the uses of autobiography from the nineteenth-century to the present day, and from Africa, USA, the Middle East, France, New Zealand, as well as Britain. Their accounts demonstrate how a reading of autobiography, together with critical scrutiny of the context in which it is produced, can bring understanding not only of the autobiographer as an individual, but of the social, cultural and political conditions in which we read and write about ourselves." "The Chapters draw on a number of approaches, including historical and literary methods. They are frequently about the retrieval and reclamation of previously hidden or misrepresented writings; anthropological and educational strategies, often using personal testimony as a means of questioning assumptions about the status quo; and demonstrations of autobiographical practice in writing workshops and performance art. Contributors highlight ways in which we use and might use autobiography not only to represent and understand individual lives, but also for purposes of establishing communities of interest, and for educational and social change."--BOOK JACKET

"This authentic diary, kept by a Viennese schoolgirl from the ages of eleven to fourteen, first appeared publicly in 1919. Richly expressive and emotionally moving, it chronicles intimately her passage from childhood to puberty with frankness, lucidity, and an honesty that scandalized the anonymous author's contemporaries."--Back cover
