Routledge Revivals: Bertolt Brecht: Dialectics, Poetry, Politics by Peter Brooker

English | 2017 | ISBN: 1138245127 | 271 Pages | PDF | 43.6 MB

First published in 1988, this books argues with received accounts to reclaim Brecht’s emphasis on his self-described ‘dialectical theatre’, re-examining firstly the concepts of Gestus and Verfremdung and their realisation in Brecht’s poetry in terms of his attempt to consciously apply the methods of dialectical materialism to art and cultural practice. The author also takes issue with the customary view of Brecht’s career and politics which sees him as compromising either with Communist party dogma or bourgeois aesthetics, to find developing parallels between Brecht’s political and artistic though and the critical dialectics of Marx, Lenin and Mao. This development is examined in later chapters in relation to the early and late plays, The Measures Taken and Days of the Commune as well as in relation to Brecht’s changed circumstances in the years of war-time exile and in post-war East Germany.

Engaging Native American Publics : Linguistic Anthropology in a Collaborative Key

English | 2017 | ISBN: 1138950947 | 220 Pages | PDF | 5.63 MB

Engaging Native American Publics considers the increasing influence of Indigenous groups as key audiences, collaborators, and authors with regards to their own linguistic documentation and representation. The chapters critically examine a variety of North American case studies to reflect on the forms and effects of new collaborations between language researchers and Indigenous communities, as well as the types and uses of products that emerge with notions of cultural maintenance and linguistic revitalization in mind. In assessing the nature and degree of change from an early period of ’salvage‘ research to a period of greater Indigenous ’self-determination,‘ the volume addresses whether increased empowerment and accountability has truly transformed the terms of engagement and what the implications for the future might be.

Arabic Voices 1: Authentic Listening and Reading Practice in Modern Standard Arabic and Colloquial Dialects: Volume 1 by Matthew Aldrich

English | 5 Nov. 2014 | ISBN: 0985816058 | 186 Pages | PDF | 6.91 MB

Arabic Voices is a two-part series designed to provide students of Arabic with an opportunity to hear and study authentic Arabic as it is spoken by native speakers today. Unlike the scripted materials read by voice actors used in many course books, Arabic Voices offers dozens of audio essays spoken naturally and off-the-cuff by individuals from across the Arab World.
Each of the twelve native speakers has contributed audio essays in both Modern Standard Arabic and his or her native dialect, which have then been transcribed for study.
In Arabic Voices 1 and 2, you will hear Egyptian Arabic, Levantine Arabic (Lebanese Arabic, Palestinian Arabic, Jordanian Arabic), Yemeni Arabic, Tunisian Arabic, Moroccan Arabic, as well as Modern Standard Arabic.
MP3s are available for free download.
The segments in Modern Standard Arabic provide valuable insight into native speakers’ range of style and proficiency in the language.
The segments in colloquial Arabic dialects offer a fascinating look into the many varieties of Arabic, and how similar and different they really are from one another. Fine-tuning your listening to the idiosyncrasies of each dialect will truly help you better understand spoken Arabic.
Each “segment“ (audio essay chapter) contains:
1) exercises to sharpen your listening skills and increase how much you can understand, whatever your level
2) in-chapter answers to the exercises (no having to flip back and forth to the back of the book)
3) a voweled transcript of the audio with side-by-side English translations
4) cultural and linguistic notes
5) web links to articles and videos related to the segment
6) select segments feature grammar focuses with additional exercises.

Stage and Picture in the English Renaissance : The Mirror up to Nature

English | 2017 | ISBN: 1107121434 | 295 Pages | PDF | 26 MB

This book presents a new approach to the relationship between traditional pictorial arts and the theatre in Renaissance England. Demonstrating the range of visual culture in evidence from the mid-sixteenth to mid-seventeenth century, from the grandeur of court murals to the cheap amusement of woodcut prints, John H. Astington shows how English drama drew heavily on this imagery to stimulate the imagination of the audience. He analyses the intersection of the theatrical and the visual through such topics as Shakespeare’s Roman plays and the contemporary interest in Roman architecture and sculpture; the central myth of Troy and its widely recognised iconography; scriptural drama and biblical illustration; and the emblem of the theatre itself. The book demonstrates how the art that surrounded Shakespeare and his contemporaries had a profound influence on the ways in which theatre was produced and received.
