The memorable architecture and fine cigars of Ybor City attract and delight visitors, but locals and tourists aren't the only ones prowling the city's narrow brick streets and old nightclubs. Invisible revelers still linger at sites like the Florida Brewing Company, where Eduardo Sandoval seeks revenge from the drunken brawl that killed him in 1896. Jose Marti himself still fights by night for Cuba's liberation in Parque Amigos de Jose Marti on Eighth Avenue. Grab a Cuban sandwich or a cafe con leche and join local historian Deborah Frethem as she traces the spectral happenings of Florida's Latin Quarter.

Haunting ancient cemeteries and primitive landmarks as well as modern apartment complexes and highway sides, ghosts and restless spirits abound. This volume of Florida's Ghostly Legends and Haunted Folklore offers a delightful—and somewhat spooky—look into the darker side of the south and central areas of the Sunshine State. Explore fortress ruins in New Smyrna Beach, and keep an eye out for mysterious shadows and dark figures in the nearby forest; visit the island of Islamorada, where the ghostly remains of Flagler's railway rumble over tracks destroyed in the 1935 Labor Day Hurricane; and, if you're especially brave, walk through the eerie corridors of the mausoleum in Myrtle Hill Cemetery near Tampa, where you are sure to hear whispers from the dead or the muffled echoes of a music box. Delve into the unknown with Greg Jenkins as he examines the history, legend, and paranormal rationale behind strange occurrences in many of south and central Florida's haunted locations. Get a fresh look at some of the state's most famous ghost stories and learn never-before-heard tales of the strange and the supernatural as you take a trip through Haunted Florida. The second volume of Florida's Ghostly Legends and Haunted Folklore, covering north Florida and St. Augustine, is also available. Next in series > > See all of the books in this series

The War Against Naturalism in the Contemporary American Theatre

The War Against Naturalism in the Contemporary American Theatre

But all Tampa ' s city council members and all the old town ' s friends have never
really been able to put Ybor City together ... on the operations of larger organized
crime in southern Florida ; and the Italian Club , said to be “ haunted ” ( 209 ) .

Author: Robert J. Andreach

The book applies playwright John Guare's statement that, "the war against naturalism," is the history of the American theatre in the Twentieth-Century to selected plays by important contemporary American playwrights. Crucial to the argument is the recognition that a war presupposes two sides with neither side defeating the other, for if naturalistic theatre were to win, all theatre would be linear with characters circumscribed by their heredity and environment. If non-naturalistic theatre were to win, all theatre would be a hodgepodge of incoherent images. After isolating elements of a naturalistic play in its philosophical and mode of production sense, the book examines plays that wage war in language and character. The plays are all of the past few decades: some by Foreman and Wellman are disorienting; some by Albee, Groff, and Maxwell are controversial; others by Eno and Corthron are by playwrights on the verge of major careers; still others by Overmyer and Jenkin are drawing aspiring playwrights to them as models of new, exciting writing for the theatre. All of them, whether colliding genres and styles or destabilizing meaning as in plays by Gibson and Long or reclaiming a mystery as in plays by Ludlam, Greenberg, and Donagy, challenge naturalism's boundaries. The book not only provides an approach to the contemporary American drama-theatre, but also brings together playwrights not perceived as having any connections other than the fact that they are creating plays today. The text is appropriate for undergraduate students through professors and practitioners.
