This book uses the set of relations announced by teachers' and students' readings of literary fictions as a «commonplace location» to interpret the experience of curriculum. In addition to illuminating the complexity of «schooled» readings of literature, Private Readings in Public provides insightful and provocative interpretations of the intertwined, overlapping, and ever-evolving intertextual relations that comprise events of curriculum. It will be of interest to those who wish to expand their understanding of the way in which interpretations of shared reading can become a «literary anthropology» where the identities of readers, writers, and teachers are continually re-invented during processes of reading, writing, and teaching.

Play Readings

Play Readings

These types of private readings are for the playwright's benefit. Playwrights can hear what they want to accomplish. The benefit of public readings is that the audience response affects the rhythm of the piece, and impacts pacing.

Play Readings: A Complete Guide for Theatre Practitioners demystifies the standards and protocols of a play reading, demonstrating how to create effective and evocative readings for those new to or inexperienced with the genre. It examines all of the essential considerations involved in readings, including the use of the venue, pre-reading preparations, playwright/director communication, editing/adapting stage directions, casting, using the limited rehearsal time effectively, simple "staging" suggestions, working with actors, handling complex stage directions, talkbacks, and limiting the use of props, costumes, and music. A variety of readings are covered, including readings of musicals, operas, and period plays, for comprehensive coverage of this increasingly prevalent production form.

These essays explore the reconception of the Gospels as first-century compositions of sound performed for audiences by storytellers rather than the anachronistic picture of a series of texts read by individual readers. The new paradigm implicit in these initial experiments is based on the recent realization that the majority of persons--85 to 95 percent--were illiterate and experienced the Jesus stories as members of audiences. Either from memory or from memorized manuscripts, the evangelists performed the Gospels as an evening's entertainment of two to four hours. The audiences were predominantly addressed as Hellenistic Judeans who lived in the aftermath of the Roman-Jewish war. When heard whole, the Gospels were vivid experiences of the central character of Jesus. These studies of audience address and the interactions between first-century storytellers and audiences reveal a dynamic performance literature that functioned as scripts for an ever-expanding network of storytelling proclamations whose envisioned horizon was the whole world. When the Gospels were told at one time from beginning to end, they invited the listeners to move from being peripherally interested or initially opposed to Jesus to identifying themselves as disciples of Jesus and believers in him as the Messiah.

Mit Band 5 präsentiert die Reihe Jiddistik: Edition & Forschung erstmals in einer kommentierten wissenschaftlichen Edition vier altjiddische Versepen aus dem sechzehnten Jahrhundert, die nur in historischen Einzelexemplaren erhalten sind. Diese Werke sind typisch für das einst populäre Genre der altjiddischen Bibelepik. Die Erzählungen greifen auf Stoffe der jüdischen Quellen zum Buch Josua und dem Buch der Richter zurück; sie adaptieren Stil- und Formelemente der mittelalterlichen deutschsprachigen Heldenliteratur und erweitern den biblischen Stoff um Passagen, welche die kulturellen Umstände ihrer Entstehung, vermutlich im deutschen und italienischen Sprachraum, widerspiegeln. Da diese Werke zu den frühesten Beispielen biblischer Versepen in jiddischer Sprache gehören, berührt deren Analyse auch die Ursprünge dieser Gattung und zeichnet ihren Weg von der Mündlichkeit zur Schriftlichkeit nach. Die kommentierte Edition präsentiert das Original im Älteren Jiddisch zusammen mit einer englischsprachigen Einführung.
