About this Item: GRIN Publishing, Germany, 2008. Paperback. Condition: New. 1. Auflage.. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Seminar paper from the year 2004 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 2,0, University of Paderborn (Fakultat fur Kulturwissenschaften), course: Shakespeare: The Comedies, 14 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: A Midsummer Night s Dream is Shakespeare s most enchanting comedy and one of his most popular plays. It is very lyrical and poetic, filled with magical beings from mythological worlds and the power of true love. Shakespeare s age was the great time of fairy poetry in English literature, but no other work has influenced our visions of fairies as much as A Midsummer Night s Dream. Till today the idea of fairies, as we have them in our mind, is shaped by Shakespeare s delighting comedy. The play can be interpreted as a fantasia on love, because love, it s follies, absurdities, conflicts and even dangers draw a red line through the play: from the quarrel between the fairy king and queen, to the heroic love of Theseus for his war-conquered Amazon queen, to the love-chase of Hermia, Helena, Lysander and Demetrius, and to the enchanted experiences of Bot-tom. In nearly all of these love affairs the fairies have their (sometimes helping) hand engaged and they are thus very important agents in the main- and in the sub-plots. In this paper I will first take a survey of the historic belief in fairies in Shakespearian England, and then look at Shakespeare s literary sources for the most important and most famous fairies who appear in this play, namely Oberon, Titania and Puck. Then I will show some parallels between the fairy queen Titania and Queen Elizabeth I, and afterwards I will analyze the quarrel between Oberon, king of fairies, and his wife. Finally I will give a comprehensive overview of the various ways of performing the play, both in theatre and in film. Seller Inventory # APC9783638923941

About this Item: Read Books, United Kingdom, 2010. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. This early work is both expensive and hard to find in its first edition. The chief object of this volume is to exhibit, in a manner acceptable to readers who are not specialists, the application of the principles and methods which guide investigations into popular traditions to a few of the most remarkable stories embodying the Fairy superstitions of the Celtic and Teutonic peoples. This is a fascinating investigation by an industrious and scrupulous author that is thoroughly recommended reading for all those interested in the popular mythology and folklore of Europe. Contents: The Art of Story-telling; Savage Ideas; Fairy Births and Human Midwives; Changlings; Robberies from Fairyland; The Supernatural Laps of Time in Fairyland; Swan-Maidens; Conclusion. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork. Seller Inventory # LIE9781445508399

About this Item: Williams and Norgate, London, 1912. Hardcover. Condition: g+ to vg. First edition. Small Quarto. ix, 375 (1), viii, 388 (4)pp. Original green cloth with blind-stamped vignettes on covers and gilt lettering and vignettes on spines. Illustrated endpapers. Remarkable study in magic and religion with a semantic approach rather than one on rites and customs. "In the following studies I have taken all symbolism to be my province, but the subjects illustrated are, as before, hitherto-uninterpreted printers' marks and paper-marks. Most of these signs have entirely lost their primitive significance, and are now used purely for commercial purposes; but there was a time when they were not only trade signs, but were also hieroglyphics, under which the pearl of great price was revered." (Bayley). Illustrated with an abundance of symbolic drawings and reproduction of woodcuts throughout. Contains elaborate index and four pages of publisher's advertisements at rear. Bindings with light wear along edges, light fraying and chipping at heads of spines. Illustrated front endpaper of volume one with plane foxing, respectively offsetting. Some pencil markings in margins of block. Starting at page 145 of volume one. Foredge and bottom edge uncut. Bindings and interior in overall good+ to very good condition. Seller Inventory # 43979
