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.

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.

"The Yalta Stunts, one of the most perfect, charming, and enigmatic works of the always mysterious 20th century underground poet Alvin Krinst, has circulated in hand-printed editions of uneven quality for decades since first published in 1963. 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."

 Softcover Softcover. Good Condition/. First Edition. foreword by John Houseman. Illustrated card cover with black and gray coloured titles to the front panel and black coloured titles to the backstrip. The Acting Company, a touring repertory theatre group in America, had difficulty in attracting new works to their repertoire, as playwrights preferred to see their works premiered on regular runs in New York or in regional theatres. To circumvent this lack of contemporary material, the executive producer had the thought of circulating a number of Chekhov stories amongst a dozen of America's most successful young playwrights. As the foreword, page 5 states " ... The idea was not simply to adapt or dramatises the stories, but to use them as a cue for the creation of short theatrical pieces to be produced by the Company as part of its rapid tree season." These are the plays: – Maria Irene Fornes – Drowning, Spalding Gray – Rivkala's Ring, John Guare – The Talking Dog, David Mamet – Vint, Wendy Wassertein – The Man in a Case, Michael Weller -- Eve Of the Trial, Samm-Art Williams. Creasing to the book corners with rubbing to the book edges and book panels. Sunning to the backstrip. Stains and various marks to the book panels and there are some stains to the textblock edges.

It takes a family trip to the Tamworth Music Festival and a chance meeting with the long lost lover to get Cook fired up again. It takes Vikki's American boyfriend Hank to remind us of the treasure we have in our own Australian Country and Western music." – from the rear panel blurb.
