Reading Shakespeare's Dramatic Language by Lynette Hunter

Book Description

This accessible and interdisciplinary volume addresses a fundamental need in current education in language, literature and drama. Many of today's students lack the grammatical and linguistic skills to enable them to study Shakespearean and other Renaissance texts as closely as their courses require. This practical guide will help them to understand and use the structures and strategies of written and dramatic language. Eleven short essays on aspects of literary criticism and performance by an eminent team of contributors are followed by a more detailed exploration of the history of language use, grammar and spelling, plus a glossary of terms offering definitions, contexts and examples. Together these provide an informed and engaging historical understanding of dramatic language in the early modern period.

Mapping Landscapes for Performance as Research by Lynette Hunter Mapping Landscapes for Performance as Research, Hardback (July 2009)

Although the sciences have long understood the value of practice-based research, the arts and humanities have tended to structure a gap between practice and analysis. This book examines differences and similarities between Performance as Research practices in various community and national contexts, mapping out the landscape of this new field.

Negotiating Shakespeare's Language in 'Romeo and Juliet' by Lynette Hunter Negotiating Shakespeare's Language in 'Romeo and Juliet', Hardback (June 2009)

Through fresh and unconventional approaches, including critical/historical, printing/publishing and performance studies, this study mines Shakespeare's "Romeo and Juliet" to produce insights into the early modern family, the individual, and society in the context of early modern capitalism. It also includes a CD-ROM.

Literary Value/Cultural Power by Lynette Hunter Literary Value/Cultural Power, Paperback (December 2001)

Lynette Hunter examines the marginalised verbal arts: written and spoken texts that don't fit the conventional patterns, such as e-mail, writing from the Black diaspora, women's writing and electronic texts. She asks how, given their importance to their communities, they might be valued.

Critiques of Knowing by Lynette Hunter Critiques of Knowing, Paperback (February 1999)

Explores what happens to science and computing when we think of them as texts. The book elegantly weaves together such vast areas of thought as: rhetoric, politics, AI, computing, feminism, science studies, aesthetics and epistemology.
