In this first full-length study of Victorian women playwrights in Britain, Katherine Newey uncovers these invisible women playwrights, to find an energetic tradition of female playwriting that dramatizes the central experiences of women's lives around the themes of home, the nation, marriage and the family. Women playwrights are revealed in all their diversity - ambitious, playful, tragic, comic, popular, hard working - and in their strength of purpose in the face of the masculine, clubbable Victorian theatre. Women's Theatre Writing in Victorian Britain shows that it was possible to be a playwright and a woman in Victorian Britain, and argues that it is important that we remember the women who struggled so hard for recognition on the national stage. Featuring extensive use of archival work and a useful appendix with a checklist of British women playwrights and their plays 1800 - 1900, this new study will be valuable to students and scholars of theatre history, Victorian studies and gender and performance+-+K78894859627411ocn308173700book20100.77Newey, KatherineJohn Ruskin and the Victorian theatreHistory"This the first sustained study of the interest of John Ruskin in the theatre of his time. It examines Ruskin's active engagement with and influence on the Victorian popular theatre. Ruskin was an enthusiastic and catholic theatre-goer, enjoying pantomime as much as Shakespeare. Through the lens of Ruskin's discussions of pantomime, melodrama, Shakespearean tragedy, and painting and the stage, Newey and Richards offer a new view of the late Victorian stage focusing on London's West End in its heyday"--+-+54497058752328ocn259265632book20090.84Heinrich, AnselmRuskin, the theatre and Victorian visual cultureHistoryThis book brings together original research in theatre and the visual arts, around the common object of a revaluation of the intersections of the theatre and visual culture. Contributors are drawn from a stimulating mix of highly-esteemed and established scholars (such as Shearer West, Jim Davis, Richard Foulkes and David Mayer) and new scholars, bringing fresh research materials into the mix. The collection offers a set of essays around a theme of emerging interest in Victorian studies. There are few books focused on the theatre and the visual arts since Martin Meisel's Realizations. Since then, essay length pieces have been published by prominent theatre and art historians, several of whom are contributors to this work. The multi-author nature of this collection of essays allows a broader range of original material to be examined, and a number of critical approaches to be pursued. The collection is made coherent by the focus on John Ruskin's aesthetic and cultural theories, and their application to a re-evaluation of the popular theatre of the late nineteenth century. All contributors are working within a theoretical framework which challenges Modernist historiographical assumptions about a theatre in moral and aesthetic decline in this period+-+6405575875591ocn028801242book19930.26Newey, KatherineMary Shelley's FrankensteinCriticism, interpretation, etcStory telling - Myth and science - Birth - Family - Dreams and nightmares - Heroes and monsters - After Frankenstein512ocn694227850book20110.93Lives of Shakespearian actorsBiography+-+1584146036121ocn035846757book19940.79Palmer, T.
