    Shakespeare Our Contemporary Epub ☆ Shakespeare Our shakespeare book, contemporary mobile, Shakespeare Our kindle, Shakespeare Our Contemporary MOBIKott is like a New Historicist avant la lettre He reads William Shakespeare in the context of the political realities of the Cold War Thus the categories he employs in his study of the plays are drawn not from conventional literary criticism figures of speech prosody etc but from history and particularly political and cultural events of postwar Eastern Europe A great alternative to studies of Shakespeare that focus on the psychology of characters or textual instabilities

    Shakespeare Our Contemporary Epub ☆ Shakespeare Our shakespeare book, contemporary mobile, Shakespeare Our kindle, Shakespeare Our Contemporary MOBII found this book to be a period piece I'm pretty lefty in my politics but this comes from that Cold War era when everybody regardless of their historical era was being re cast as a Marxist Shakespeare Our Economic Determinist or something like that would have been a good title I found the writing lazy the argument merely de rigeur for the era and the literary interpretation disastrous Of course I only read about 35 pages and then dipped in to about 3 highly repetitive and drably written chapters after that; surely it's got ualities I'm missing

    Shakespeare Our Contemporary Epub ☆ Shakespeare Our shakespeare book, contemporary mobile, Shakespeare Our kindle, Shakespeare Our Contemporary MOBIFor the most part I enjoyed the book but because it covered literally every piece of literature that has the name Shakespeare on it occasionally it was hard to follow as I have not read all the plays written by Shakespeare On the other hand the chapters that were devoted to the plays I read were uite engaging and full of insightful interpretations The author also attempted to relate to other milestones in drama and to show how the same topics are still valid and interesting how we are still fascinated by similar themes and why Shakespeare is still our contemporary and not some dated playwright To be honest some of these connections were pure stretch or so it seems to be The book is also a refreshing look on Shakespeare's work as it mostly focuses on the political and extra literary context instead of typical literary analysis and deconstruction Of course this book is slightly dated and a child of its time as it

    Shakespeare Our Contemporary Epub ☆ Shakespeare Our shakespeare book, contemporary mobile, Shakespeare Our kindle, Shakespeare Our Contemporary MOBII had heard of Jan Kott's Shakespeare Our Contemporary since my theatre school days at CalArts 1977 1979 but never read his work Several months ago I was able to read Kott's Eating of the Gods which was his take on Greek theatre and that was one of the best and most personal interpretations of theatre I have ever been privileged to read Shakespeare Our Contemporary is a terrific resource Kott's writing has influenced Peter Brook and Charles Marowitz and therefore all Shakespeare since the 1960s It is a great and useful scholar who can give an intimate overview of the 60 plays written by William Shakespeare Kott's interpretation is personal and powerful In one of his best insights he points out that Hamlet is always performed in a manner to fit the time of the production Reason The play is 6 hours long in its entirety and th

    Shakespeare Our Contemporary Epub ☆ Shakespeare Our shakespeare book, contemporary mobile, Shakespeare Our kindle, Shakespeare Our Contemporary MOBIJust finished Jan Kott’s SHAKESPEARE OUR CONTEMPORARY the influential study from 1964 Kott’s vision is consistently arresting but it isn’t Shakespeare’s For instance the Erasmian humor of MIDSUMMER Kott views as “brutal” akin to Goya’s or Iago’s Forcing meanings on the plays he over privileges the absurd

    Shakespeare Our Contemporary Epub ☆ Shakespeare Our shakespeare book, contemporary mobile, Shakespeare Our kindle, Shakespeare Our Contemporary MOBIWritten in the 60s by a Polish Professor whose been woken up at 4 am one too many times by the police Shakespeare our contemporary suggests that Shakespeare is not as mythical or as distant as most academics would have him Kott's engaging style helps his argument than his argument does although he does make some good points in favour of Shakespeare's humanity He can also get very side trackedThere is another kind of historical tragedy originating in the conviction that history has no meaning and stands still or constantly repeats its cruel cycle; that it is an elemental force like hail storm or hurricane birth and death A mole digs in the earth but will never come to the surface New generations of moles are being born all the time scatter the earth in all directions but are themselves constantly buried by the earth A mole has its dre

    Shakespeare Our Contemporary Epub ☆ Shakespeare Our shakespeare book, contemporary mobile, Shakespeare Our kindle, Shakespeare Our Contemporary MOBIThis is really good criticism Granted I don't read a lot of Shakespeare criticism but when I do a play from now on I'll be going back to this well thought out book Kott suggests that most all of Shakespeare's plays boil down to the march of history and the succession of power As usurpers kill to take the thrown upset the order of the kingdom and are ultimately brought down by another usurper who at the time is saving the kingdom from an unjust king but in order to climb the stairs of power his metaphor must step on some may along the way that he himself becomes an unjust usurper He also discusses the rolls of love and lust in Shakespeare the power of cross dressing and how he used this rule of the time to the advantage in his plots Also interesting to see the responses to Shakespeare of a Polish Marxist who had recently survived WWII in Poland There's a lot bu

    Shakespeare Our Contemporary Epub ☆ Shakespeare Our shakespeare book, contemporary mobile, Shakespeare Our kindle, Shakespeare Our Contemporary MOBIRemains essential reading if you want to think seriously about the theatre I'm always sort of surprised there are any complaints about Kott for this re invented shakespeare and in some ways modern theatre Perhaps only ted hughes book on WS and some of Berryman come close Bloom is the kitsch version of serious thought on WS Also a model of how to explain the intersect of politics history and art
