Download The Queen's Men and Their Plays PDF by Scott McMillin Full Free and published by Cambridge University Press. This book was released on 1998-05-28 with total page 288 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This is the first book devoted to the Queen's Men, one of the major acting companies of the age of Shakespeare. In describing the troupe's position in the general political situation and the London theatre scene of the 1580s, the authors break new ground by showing how Elizabethan theatre history can be refocused by concentrating on the company which produced the plays rather than on the authors who wrote them. The book combines a thorough examination of documentary evidence with textual and critical analysis, to provide a full account of the characteristics which gave the company its identity: its acting style, staging methods, touring patterns and repertoire. The conclusions will interest Elizabethan historians as well as students and scholars of early modern theatre.

Download Locating the Queen's Men, 1583–1603 PDF by Holger Schott Syme Full Free and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2016-05-06 with total page 284 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Locating the Queen's Men presents new and groundbreaking essays on early modern England's most prominent acting company, from their establishment in 1583 into the 1590s. Offering a far more detailed critical engagement with the plays than is available elsewhere, this volume situates the company in the theatrical and economic context of their time. The essays gathered here focus on four different aspects: playing spaces, repertory, play-types, and performance style, beginning with essays devoted to touring conditions, performances in university towns, London inns and theatres, and the patronage system under Queen Elizabeth. Repertory studies, unique to this volume, consider the elements of the company's distinctive style, and how this style may have influenced, for example, Shakespeare's Henry V. Contributors explore two distinct genres, the morality and the history play, especially focussing on the use of stock characters and on male/female relationships. Revising standard accounts of late Elizabeth theatre history, this collection shows that the Queen's Men, often understood as the last rear-guard of the old theatre, were a vital force that enjoyed continued success in the provinces and in London, representative of the abiding appeal of an older, more ostentatiously theatrical form of drama.

Book excerpt: The Agents of the Crown—the “rollicking new historical thriller” (The New York Times Book Review) series—returns with this riveting novel following the original MI6 agent as he is assigned a dangerous mission to recreate a weapon from antiquity. As she travels through Waltham Forest, Queen Elizabeth I is ambushed by masked gunmen who leave her carriage riddled with holes before disappearing into the night. The Queen’s Private Secretary, Sir Francis Walsingham, is tasked with finding the perpetrators, about whom they know precious little. But someone alerted the gunman to the route of the Queen’s carriage, and Walsingham knows that the assassins will not stop until she’s dead. While Queen Elizabeth’s Privy Council debates how to best secure the throne in the wake of the attack and Catholic Spain’s further intrusion into the Low Countries, the queen herself searches for the ultimate weapon to protect her country and throne: Greek fire, the recipe of which disappeared with the collapse of the Byzantine Empire. She orders her friend John Dee—scientist, philosopher, and spy—to rediscover this vital secret, despite his misgivings. For he understands that in a world fraught with coded messages, ruthless adversaries, and deadly plot, his mission to secure his nation’s future may prove impossible, unless he deploys the most effective weapon of all: intelligence. With his “twisty, fast-paced” (Publishers Weekly) prose, Oliver Clements weaves another white-knuckled and intelligent historical thriller set in the Age of the Enlightenment with parallels in the present day.

Download Shakespeare, the Queen's Men, and the Elizabethan Performance of History PDF by Brian Walsh Full Free and published by Cambridge University Press. This book was released on 2009-12-10 with total page pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The Elizabethan history play was one of the most prevalent dramatic genres of the 1590s, and so was a major contribution to Elizabethan historical culture. The genre has been well served by critical studies that emphasize politics and ideology; however, there has been less interest in the way history is interrogated as an idea in these plays. Drawing in period-sensitive ways on the field of contemporary performance theory, this book looks at the Shakespearean history play from a fresh angle, by first analyzing the foundational work of the Queen's Men, the playing company that invented the popular history play. Through innovative readings of their plays including The Famous Victories of Henry V before moving on to Shakespeare's 1 Henry VI, Richard III, and Henry V, this book investigates how the Queen's Men's self-consciousness about performance helped to shape Shakespeare's dramatic and historical imagination.

During the conference, the goddess LaSheena reveals to Rejeena a great truth, the answer to many enflaming hurdles dividing persons, communities, races, religions, and nations—possibly the answer to peace everywhere for all time. A simple concept, but how can she present it, thereby convincing others to believe, accept and utilize? Rejeena aborns a son. A Kriisconian Great Queen cannot keep a son; but Aarvan will not tolerate such rejection. Can queen and queen’s man find a solution to this predicament? Despite all Rejeena’s and Aarvan’s endeavors, Mainland warships, carrying thousands of soldiers armed with cannons and guns, attack Kriiscon to conquer, force upon the island their fanatic religion and intrusive culture. What can Kriiscon offer to combat such determined, superior forces? Simultaneously, the lifelong feud between Rejeena and Ishtabarra demands resolution, a battle to the death. Dare she indulge? After years of sacrifice and effort by Kriisconians—women, men and glaalets—to integrate as a peaceful island, how can Rejeena and Aarvan prevent it all shattering into a crushing, calamitous defeat?
