Hitler and the Holocaust by Robert S Wistrich( Book )

2 editions published in 2002 in Portuguese and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Robert Wistrich begins his history of the Holocaust by exploring the origins of anti-Semitism in Europe, and especially in Germany, to try explain how millions of Jews came to be killed systematically by the Third Reich. In the process of relating these events, he provides new and incisive answers to a number of central questions concerning the Shoah that have emerged over recent years: who, inside and outside Nazi Germany, knew that Jews were being murdered; how responsibility for the genocide should be divided between Hitler himself and ordinary Germans; and how historians have tried to make sense of the Holocaust. The book concludes by considering the legacy of Nazi crimes since 1945: the Nuremburg trials, the impact of the Holocaust on Diaspora Jewry (particularly in Israel and America), and the rise of neo-Nazism and Holocaust-denial

Peoples and empires : a short history of European migration, exploration, and conquest, from Greece to the present by Anthony Pagden( Book )

1 edition published in 2002 in Portuguese and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Anthony Pagden tells the story of the great empires of the West, from the days of Alexander the Great and Rome to the fall of Europe's colonial system after World War II." "Peoples and Empires explains how Europe's great colonial enterprises exploded across the world at the time and in the manner that they did, connects them in a mosaic of cause and effect, teases out their similarities and significant differences, and follows the waxing and waning tides of their fortunes. Pagden assesses how Europe made sense of the "New World"; how it integrated slavery into its economic framework and to what ends; and how, again and again, it found new ways of convincing itself that subjecting other peoples to its rule was an act of great generosity and kindness. Finally, he shows how the Age of Empire, at least as traditionally understood, came to an end, leaving conquerors and subjects changed beyond all recognition."--Jacket

Shakespearean puppets : dramatic and human bodies manipulated by Aline Razzera Maciel( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Através de um estudo sobre adaptações de peças de Shakespeare para o Teatro de Formas Animadas, essa pesquisa explora adaptações do corpo dramático e humano, discutindo reescrituras de Shakespeare em um espetáculo representado com bonecos, enfocando a questão da adaptação do corpo humano e do corpo dramático de Shakespeare. O corpus é a peça 100 Shakespeare, representada pela Compania brasileira Pia Fraus, que consiste na adaptação de nove peças de Shakespeare parao Teatro de Formas Animadas. As esquetes selecionadas são: Hamlet, Otelo e Titus Andronicus uma vez que estas apresentam elementos quecaracterizam adaptações textuais e corpóreas. Esta dissertação utilizaparametros teóricos, sobretudo, de Linda Hutcheon, que aponta que cadapessoa experiencia uma mesma adaptação diferentemente de outra porcausa de sua formação; de Patrice Pavis, que acredita que uma adaptação pode modificar o significado de uma peça; de Ana Maria Amaral, que define #boneco# como objeto inanimado que retrata seres humanos ou animais e que é animado por um ator-manipulador; de Pilár Amorós e Paco Parício, que contribuem com diversas idéias a repeito do Teatro de Formas Animadas; de Valmor Nini Beltrame, que apresenta alguns princípios da manipulação de bonecos; e das idéias de Heinrich von Kleist a respeito da superioridade da marionete em relação ao serhumano. Baseando-se nos parametros identificados, esta dissertação aponta para as possibilidades de considerar os bonecos adaptações do corpo e da mente humana e humanizações de personagens Shakespeareanas, analisando como as esquetes são adaptadas, como os bonecos são manipulados e como as personagens são desenvolvidas
Strange images of death : violence and the uncanny in five productions of Macbeth by Dolores Aronovich Aguero( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Esta tese analisa como cenas sinistramente violentas no Macbeth de William Shakespeare são realizadas em três produções teatrais (a Macbeth de Trevor Nunn, para a Royal Shakespeare Company, em 1976, a Macbeth de Ulysses Cruz, e Trono de Sangue de Antunes Filho, ambas de 1992) e em dois filmes (o Macbeth de Roman Polanski, de 1971, e Homens de Respeito, de William Reilly, de 1991). Essas produções foram escolhidas devido a sua proximidade nas respectivas épocas e sua relevância: a Macbeth de Nunn é um marco muito elogiado; as duas Macbeths brasileiras ocorreram em um momento em que o Brasil não estava feliz com seu presidente, que renunciou antes de sofrer o impeachment. Quanto aos filmes, o de Polanski é provavelmente o mais violento de qualquer adaptação de Shakespeare para as telas, e o de Reilly é uma apropriação que transporta a ação para a Máfia do século XX. Através de uma análise de "The Sand-Man," de Ernst Hoffman, Freud desenvolveu seu conceito do sinistro, aquilo que é estranhamente familiar, que deveria manter-se escondido mas insiste em aparecer. O sinistro engloba várias características, como os duplos, a compulsão em repetir, o mau olhado, o olho grande, o olhar, o impulso da morte, déjà-vu, fantasmas, bonecas e autômatos, a nebulosidade entre fantasia e realidade, a limininalidade, epilepsia e loucura. A maior parte desses traços está presente no texto da peça e nas cinco produções analisadas. Esta tese investiga se o sinistro vem mais à tona quando a violência se mistura, e vice-versa, e por que às vezes se tem certeza de ter visto algo que sequer foi mostrado-o que é, por si só, uma sensação sinistra. Para explorar essas perguntas, esta tese compara duas mídias, teatro e cinema, sob a ótica da Análise de Performance. Outro capítulo teórico é dedicado ao sinistro e à violência em Macbeth. Os outros três capítulos analisam cada produção, sempre dando atenção ao contexto em que cada uma foi realizada. A tese conclui que violência e sinistro andam lado a lado nas cinco produções e no texto em si, mas que o filme de Polanski é difícil de ser igualado em termos de violência sinistra, já que opta por mostrar na tela muito da violência que é apenas sugerida no texto (como no caso do assassinato de Duncan). No entanto, todas as cinco produções oferecem exemplos interessantes de violência sinistra em um texto que sempre foi considerado um dos mais violentos entre as obras de Shakespeare, e que poderia ser visto também como o mais sinistro
