Über dieses Produkt
- Kurzbeschreibung<p>Since its earliest records, Shakespeare's Tempest has undergone continuous change. It is a play by which readers, spectators and critics just as artists, writers, actors or<br>directors try to understand themselves. Over the course<br>of four centuries and across the many different cultural,<br>political or aesthetic fields in which The Tempest has<br>been seen, performed, produced, appropriated, translated,<br>read, reread, debated, changed, adapted, painted,<br>filmed and taught - if there is one thing that emerges<br>from this rich history and impact, it must be the prominence<br>that this particular drama holds for processes of<br>self-seeking or self-positioning. Each place and culture,<br>all periods and generations that encountered this Shakespearean<br>drama and have engaged with it creatively or<br>critically have found it a persistent stimulus or challenge<br>also for encountering themselves and for exploring consequences<br>and conditions of the creative acts that they<br>themselves perform.<br>The present volume aims to chart this history in parts,<br>placing special emphasis on the early seventeenth century<br>and the present, Shakespeare's time and our own. The<br>first six essays here presented explore some of the literary,<br>historical, philosophical, religious and/or cultural<br>connections through which this text is interrelated - and<br>interacts - with discourses and practices in the period of<br>its first Production. The remaining seven essays explore<br>what contemporary meanings have been made by it.<br>Whether in Cuba, China, Germany or Japan, whether in<br>theatrical staging or rewriting, in DIY versions on<br>YouTube or in arthouse films on screen, all these critical<br>and cultural transformations of the play are nothing if<br>not rich and strange.</p>
