📒 Love Me Or Kill Me ✍ Graham Saunders
✏ Love Me Or Kill Me Book Summary : Love Me or Kill Me is the first study of Sarah Kane, the most significant British dramatist in post-war theater. It covers all of Kane's major plays and productions, contains hitherto unpublished material and reviews, and looks at her continuing influence after her tragic early death. Locating the main dramatic sources and features of her work as well as centralizing her place within the 'new wave' of emergent British dramatists in the 1990's, Graham Saunders provides an introduction for those familiar and unfamiliar with her work.
📒Love Me Or Kill Me ✍ Hanna Kubowitz
✏Love Me or Kill Me Book Summary : Seminar paper from the year 2003 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 1.5, University of Freiburg (Englisches Seminar), course: Hauptseminar: British Drama after 1945, language: English, abstract: "From first to last [the] play is concerned with sexual and physical violence. (...) Nobody (...) will deny that it is the function of the theatre to reflect the horrific undercurrents of contemporary life. But it cannot be allowed, even in the name of freedom of speech, to do so without aim, purpose or meaning." "[The play] isn’t just disgusting, it’s pathetic (...) a lazy, tawdry piece of work without an idea in its head beyond an adolescent desire to shock." Accusations like these give evidence of how emotional, outraged, and hysterical theatre critics react when challenged by unexpectedly shocking and indigestible performances. It may come as a surprise that the above extracts are neither part of one single critique, nor do they refer to one single play. The first quote refers to Edward Bond’s Saved (1965), whereas the second one refers to the late Sarah Kane’s Blasted (1995). Not incidentally, both playwrights were accused by numerous irritated critics of committing the same unacceptable affront: They were reproached for depicting the most disgusting forms of violence on stage, merely for the sake of paying tribute to violence itself. .... “Violence shapes and ob¬sesses our society, and if we do not stop being violent we have no future (...) It would be immoral not to write about violence” (Bond 1978: 3). Although accepting and in fact admiring Bond’s decision to comment on his own work, Sarah Kane was always very reluctant about making “authorised” statements concerning her work. Nevertheless, she did provide equally comprehensible or even convincing reasons for putting violence on stage: “If you are saying you can’t represent something, you are saying you can’t talk about it, you are denying its existence, and that’s an extraordinarily ignorant thing to do.” Yet, paradoxical as it might seem,considering this apparent commitment to the representation of violence, violence is only a marginal topic in all of Kane’s plays. ... Based on an analysis of the 1998 play Cleansed, this paper aims at a reassessment and revaluation of Sarah Kane’s work: Violence – both physical and emotional – is an important ingredient, and yet only a minor theme in the plays. It is dominated by the all-encompassing theme of love. Love and violence, however, are not examined as two separate individual experiences. On the contrary, it is their overlapping that is scrutinised.
✏Love me or kill me Sex and love in the 1619 play The Maid s Tragedy by Francis Beaumont and John Fletcher Book Summary : Seminar paper from the year 2015 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 2.3, University of Bonn (Institut für Anglistik, Amerikanistik und Keltologie), course: The Renaissance in England, language: English, abstract: If love is not the main issue in "The Maid's Tragedy", is the play a sex tragedy rather than a love tragedy? How important is sex for the story and is it connected with love in any way? This paper is supposed to answer exactly these questions with a strong focus on the meaning of sex and sexual relationships for the plot and for single characters, who have an important role. Furthermore, it will be analysed how sex is depicted in the play and what this tells about its role. "The Maid's Tragedy", written by Francis Beaumont and John Fletcher and published for the first time in 1619, is one of the plays that is often called a love tragedy due to the fate of the lady Aspatia, who is about to marry young Amintor, before the king forces Amintor to marry his own mistress, Evadne, to cover their sexual affair. Having such a plot, "The Maid's Tragedy" is a typical one for Jacobean theatre, which is explained by Marie Axton, quoted by Kristin Bezio stating “the playhouses of late Elizabethan and Jacobean London were a 'freer' place for political discussion than court or Parliament, and this drama actively participates in the ongoing Jacobean debates about the viability of tyrannicide.” This idea puts the king's acting into the play's focus, rather than the love between Aspatia and Amintor and their tragedy. Given this idea, one might ask if the play can really be called a love tragedy, or if the love story is just a subplot or a frame around the actually important issue: the sexual relationship between the king and his mistress and all its consequences that, by chance, are also consequences for the two lovers.

📒Revelation Or Damnation Depictions Of Violence In Sarah Kane S Theatre ✍ Lea Jasmin Gutscher
✏Revelation or Damnation Depictions of Violence in Sarah Kane s Theatre Book Summary : With her controversial stage art, the young playwright Sarah Kane broke new dramaturgic ground and made a lasting impression that changed British drama forever. Even though it is part of the canon covering post-war drama, Kane’s work has often met with misunderstanding and fierce criticism due to the uncountable representations of atrocities. How can we make sense of Kane’s seemingly crude and bleak theatre? Mainly concentrating on the play Cleansed, the author examines the nature of violence in Kane’s writing. What purpose does it serve? Is it simply employed for its shock value? Or is it rather used as a metaphor? Kane herself considered her third full-length play as a play about love. In suggesting a figurative reading of the late playwright’s texts, the author shows how Kane embraces violence as a metaphor of the various sufferings both love and life perpetrate upon the human being. Locked beneath the revolting cruelties, we can find a vivid theatricality, powerful images, and a unique rhythm and sound of language.
