The Crucible
Miller, Arthur
ISBN: 0140083650
Penguin, London, 1987. 
 Medium Trade Paperback Medium Trade Paperback. Good/. . 126 pages. Binding is tight, covers and spine fully intact. Tanned pages with foxing on end pages. Clear, self-adhesive laminate to covers/boards. Previous owner's name in ink. Page edges foxed. Arthur Miller's classic parable of mass hysteria draws a chilling parallel between the Salem witch-hunt of 1692 - 'one of the strangest and most awful chapters in human history' - and the American anti-communist purges led by Senator McCarthy in the 1950s. The story of how the small community of Salem is stirred into madness by superstition, paranoia and malice, culminating in a violent climax, is a savage attack on the evils of mindless persecution and the terrifying power of false accusations. A depiction of innocent men and women destroyed by malicious rumour, The Crucible is also a powerful indictment of McCarthyism and the 'frontier mentality' of Cold War America. Quantity Available: 1.

A sophisticated Australian-born actor, Alec Ritchie, returns to Sydney to make a film after 10 years at Stratford and the Old Vic. His revulsion against his homeland sets a dilemma for his wife, torn by her loyalty to Australia on the one hand and her obligation to their crumbling marriage on the other. Besides the tension between husband and wife, there is conflict between the old country and the new, between the affected angler files, the sophisticated Australians who think that all that is best comes from the old country, and the genuine Australians, suffering considerably from "national inferiority nonsense".

The dust jacket of the Demonstration has a stippled the front panel of the dustwrapper and of the front board, leaving both with the impression of being pockmarked.. A political play, part of a three work whole, the other two parts being The Illusion (a long essay) & The Occupation (a novel), each part is autonomous and can be read (or, in the case of the The Demonstration, performed) without reference to the other parts. Nevertheless all three question the role of the writer and political action, arguing that content is not something which exists to be packaged in this way or that, and as a result of the mediation between subject and form; and that any committed writer must be sharply aware of this. All three books show some dustiness of the top edge. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Please refer to accompanying picture (s). Quantity Available: 1.

Long day’s journey into night
O’Neill, Eugene,
ISBN: 0224610732
jonathan Cape, London, 1973. reprint
 Softcover Softcover. Very Good Condition/. reprint. This work is interesting enough for its history. Completed in 1940, Long Day's Journey Into Night is an autobiographical play Eugene O'Neill wrote that -- because of the highly personal writing about his family -- was not to be released until 25 years after his death, which occurred in 1953. But since O'Neill's immediate family had died in the early 1920s, his wife allowed publication of the play in 1956. Besides the history alone, the play is fascinating in its own right. It tells of the "Tyrones" -- a fictional name for what is clearly the O'Neills. Theirs is not a happy tale: The youngest son (Edmond) is sent to a sanitarium to recover from tuberculosis; he despises his father for sending him; his mother is wrecked by narcotics; and his older brother by drink. In real-life these factors conspired to turn O'Neill into who he was -- a tormented individual and a brilliant playwright. Size: 12mo (standard paperback). 160 pages. The book is a secondhand book with reading creases to the spine, and darkening of the page edges, essentially clean, but with some scattered notes and underlining..

The text is illustrated with black-and-white photography, line drawings, and flowcharts. In this book an attempt is made at developing linguistic model for the semiotics of culture, and to apply this to the analysis of a number of Russian and Polish dramatic texts, mostly from the 19th century. Special chapters are devoted to the performance of drama, and to some urgent issues concerning the structure of semiotics base. The last and most lengthy chapter presents an outline of so-called text linguistics, here conceived as a variety of case Grammar, duely revised for application to the analysis of drama and its non-verbal context. The book addresses itself to readers familiar with Slavic languages and interested in the relation between language and literary themes, and the place of drama in culture.

Short comedies Characters: Various males and females, extras In each of these masterpieces from the authors of Four Plays for Coarse Actors, sets collapse, actors fail to appear on cue and props fall to pieces while the casts carry on, believing that the audience won't notice. Moby Dick is an ambitious attempt to reduce the epic novel to a series of quick fire scenes. The Cherry Sisters, a previously undiscovered Chekhov fragment, is a desperately sincere piece with a teary ending (spoiled by a faulty prop that necessitates a standing death). Last Call for Breakfast is an avant garde play shortened because an actor is in the wrong place during a black out. Henry the Tenth (Part Seven) is a rarely performed tragedy with battle scenes that would amaze the bard. Size: Mid Sized Paperback ( 7¾" - 9¾" tall ). 74 pages.

Their mutual frustration is lightened by love, understanding and carried; while Bill, unable to speak to those on stage, shares with the audience in the sides of dry, sardonic wit, the real feelings and observations of a middle-aged man trapped in the bodily functions of a baby." -- From the rear panel blurb.

Dust Jacket is in very good condition, without tears or chips or other damage. All edges clean, neat and free of foxing. This book is available and ready to be shipped.. For more than four hundred years, the art of ballet has stood at the center of Western civilization. Its traditions serve as a record of our past. Lavishly illustrated and beautifully told, Apollo's Angels--the first cultural history of ballet ever written--is a groundbreaking work. From ballet's origins in the Renaissance and the codification of its basic steps and positions under France's Louis XIV (himself an avid dancer), the art form wound its way through the courts of Europe, from Paris and Milan to Vienna and St. Petersburg. In the twentieth century, émigré dancers taught their art to a generation in the United States and in Western Europe, setting off a new and radical transformation of dance. Jennifer Homans, a historian, critic, and former professional ballerina, wields a knowledge of dance born of dedicated practice. Her admiration and love for the ballet, as Entertainment Weekly notes, brings "a dancer's grace and sure-footed agility to the page." Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos.

Commissioned for the 1945 Yalta Conference and first performed there by Stalin, Churchill, and Roosevelt themselves, these stunningly original Stunts were not merely important precursors of the artistic revolution of the 1960’s, but potent poetic and political statements in their own right."
