A propos de cet article

Language: English . Brand New Book. This book is an anthropological investigation of action as seen through the prism of Shakespeare s dramas, and through a detailed attention to the reflections made by the players themselves - being experts in action. It should be of equal interest to anthropologists, literacy critics, dramatists and philosophers. N° de réf. du libraire AAG9788772897936

A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

An anthropological study of play-acting. Acting on the stage is seen as an example of social action in general. The focus is on the playing of Shakespeare, and on the players' use of and reflections upon time, space, plot, and acting. Kirsten Hastrup aims at a renewed understanding of action and motivation within any social setting. By listening to such experts of action as the players of Shakespeare, we achieve a comprehensive reappraisal of current notions of human agency. In the process, we are offered a set of methodological tools and analytical concepts that may enrich future anthropological analysis of individual actions in their social context. The work is an unprecedented approach to action and acting. For anthropologists and other social or cultural scientists Hastrup offers a fresh perspective on performance, and on the construction of the analytical object. For theatre historians and dramatists, the combination of detailed (ethnographic) analysis of the players' work and self-understanding and anthropological argument offers new insight into the profession of acting. The recurrent references to Shakespeare's plays add a lively feel of art and poetry and sustain one of the main threads of investigation, namely the relationship between language and action. In addition to the substantial references to players, directors, and theatre scholars, the conversational partners are mainly anthropologists and philosophers, but also art historians and literary critics.
