Book DescriptionThe correlation between the sensibility and the environment of an artist has been pivotal to critical debate for centuries and will continue to be so as long as the creative impulse and its expression remains an inexorable fact of life This book makes its own peculiar contribution to the debate in the context of a comparative study обюхо of the theater of W B Yeats and Wole Soyinka, prominent artists from quite different environments and time frames, with reference to their major plays It argues that when faced with particularized national experiences, both artists adopted similar as well as contrasting approaches to expressing their reaction Both turned to theater, adjudged the most revolutionary form of communication known because of its psychical as well as visual audience affective properties, to express an ontological and universal vision of the individual, who is projected as a tragic figure in the dance of life Yeats and Soyinka immerse themselves in the complex traditional matrix of their respective societies but marry this matrix with Western theatrical thought and conventions dating from ancient Greece Myth is the language of expression in these plays, with ritual providing the structural framework for the dance of transition, which invariably creates opportunities for a re-evaluation of values essential for the continuity of life The composite that emerges from the integration of disparate traditions is at once highly nationalistic and universal, endorsing the idea ofa contiguity of worlds taken to its logical conclusion in our present Age of Information. 2003 г 269 стр ISBN 1592211046.

Texas Dance Halls: A Two-Step Circuit артикул 1428a.
Wherever they've found fiddlers and dance floors, Texans have been tickled into motion And for a century and a half they've been kicking up dust in dance halls across the state Writing about the eighteen she knows best, Gail Folkins celebrates how these halls still bring people together and foster joy Folkins etches portraits of proprietors who обюцб give space for music and dancing, of musicians who furnish the soundtrack for dramas and comedies that play out across hardwood or concrete floors, and of people who come to dance, listen, or simply share the experience with friends and neighbors Paired with Marcus Weekley's photographs, some whirling and some dreamy, they capture beat and motion, even the scent of sawdust on the floor Drawn in, we witness daytime preparations for evenings to come, and the quiet that returns after the dancers go home and the musicians have packed up for the night Moving from Twin Sisters near New Braunfels to legendary Luckenbach, we meet the third generation in a family of makers of music and keepers of dance halls And then there are the descendants of Czech Catholic settlers coming to dance under the giant letters KJT (Katolika Jednota Texaska) At Coupland Dance Hall, we sense ghostly apparitions of pioneer women in long skirts Very much in the twenty first century, we share a dance floor with tourists and university types among the kitschy accoutrements at Austin s Broken Spoke 1 edition.
