Sam Shepard - A 'Poetic Rodeo' (Paperback, New): Carol Rosen Sam Shepard - A 'Poetic Rodeo' (Paperback, New)
Carol Rosen
R924 Discovery Miles 9 240 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

Sam Shepard crashed onto the New York theatre scene during the 1960s and has since become one of the leading playwrights in the United States today, with his plays being performed and studied on both sides of the Atlantic. Shepard's plays are both intense and passionate, as he grapples boldly with what it means to be a hero, haunted by the voices and visions of myth. Cowboys, rock and film stars, gangsters, legendary adventurers, befuddled tourists, tormented lovers, and destructive families inhabit and transform themselves in his stage world where action is energised by strong emotions, mordant wit and redemptive impulses. This book focuses on the dynamic action and heightened theatricality which characterise the many plays written by this Pulitzer Prize-winning dramatist. In a comprehensive, up-to-date overview of his career, Carol Rosen illuminates Shepard's plays in both a cultural and theatrical context. Rosen shows how plays such as The Tooth of Crime, Curse of the Starving Class, Buried Child, True West, Fool for Love and A Lie of the Mind, as well as later works such as Simpatico and The Late Henry Moss, extend the boundaries of conventional psychological drama and demonstrate the ways in which identity is an escapable legacy, the bonds of flesh and blood potentially tragic. This essential volume also features an in-depth discussion of Man Fly, Shepard's unpublished, unproduced version of Faust, as well as a rare major interview with the playwright.

Romance Languages - A Historical Introduction (Paperback): Ti Alkire, Carol Rosen Romance Languages - A Historical Introduction (Paperback)
Ti Alkire, Carol Rosen
R788 Discovery Miles 7 880 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

Ti Alkire and Carol Rosen trace the changes that led from colloquial Latin to five major Romance languages, those which ultimately became national or transnational languages: Spanish, French, Italian, Portuguese, and Romanian. Trends in spoken Latin altered or dismantled older categories in phonology and morphology, while the regional varieties of speech, evolving under diverse influences, formed new grammatical patterns, each creating its own internal regularities. Documentary sources for spoken Latin show the beginnings of this process, which comes to full fruition in the medieval emergence of written Romance languages. This book newly distills the facts into an appealing program of study, including exercises, and makes the difficult issues clear, taking well motivated and sometimes innovative stands. It provides not only an essential guide for those new to the topic, but also a reliable compendium for the specialist.
