Ticket to Ride - Paperback

Hardcover, ID: 857677423

Ashgate Publishing, Limited, UK, 2001. First Edition. Hardcover. Fine Condition/No Dust Jacket. 239 pages. Institutional stamp on front endpaper. Front and back cover lightly marked. The premise of this work is that plays about war and the "art of war" literature proliferating in the 1590s intervene in the military realities of the last few years of Elizabeth's reign much more closely than is appreciated. The author seeks to reconstruct the particular anxieties which surround the military events of the 1590s through a significant but usually neglected genre, the treatises and manuals of war, in order to deepen understanding of the plays themselves as staged responses to specific wartime conditions. The study re-evaluates the experience, practices and concepts of war by considering them alongside historical events, prescriptive writings and dramatic representations. Book Description: 1590s Drama and Militarism is a fascinating interdisciplinary study of various textual interventions into the military realities of the late Elizabethan period. Its major strength is its insistence on the discursive nature of militarism, and the author convincingly uses literary and non-literary texts-including manuals and contemporary military correspondence-to reconstruct the particular anxieties which surrounded the military exigencies of the 1590s, a particularly fraught and unstable period of the aging queen's reign. The literature of the 'art of war' has been little studied by literary scholars, despite their richly rhetorical nature. Dr Taunton's analysis thus brings to light a neglected but culturally significant form of Renaissance textuality. In doing so she is able to shed new light on the Renaissance drama, which she shows to have responded sensitively (and sometimes critically) to these textual constructions of actual warfare, and problematised the anxious idealisations of the military manuals. The particular readings of plays here are richly rewarding for the scholar of Renaissance drama-the significance of Henry's nocturnal surveillance of his own camp on the eve of the battle of Agincourt, for example, benefits immeasurably from being contextualised in the light of contemporary theories of encampment. The role of the women in Tamburlaine's camp in Marlowe's plays is also given particular significance when viewed in the light of the contemporary proscriptions regarding the presence of women in camps during the military campaigns in the Low Countries. In this study Dr Taunton makes appropriate (and critically inflected) use of Foucault's theories of surveillance, Lefebvre's theories about the ideological production of social space, and Michel de Certeau's theories of social practice are put to good use in her analysis of military strategy. These theoretical perspectives are usefully combined with highly specific and well-documented historical analyses. : Review: '... interdisciplinary and historically precise... 1590s Drama and Militarism is a welcome addition to the field.' Sixteenth Century Journal 'Taunton writes with persuasive candor and impressive documentation about the confusions found in dramatic and non-dramatic considerations of military procedures and the ways in which they both reflect and influence contemporary military practices. By design, her book raises more questions than it settles. As a result, one emerges from it with an understanding of a significant cultural cause for some of the contradictions and ambiguities in the plays under scrutiny and with a greater appreciation of the instability and the anomalies of military thinking and practices during the final years of Elizabeth's reign.' Renaissance Quarterly '...an extraordinary contribution to what many critics have seen as a neglected area of scholarship...Fascinatingly illustrated...the book is beautifully produced, readable and instructive.' Literature and History : About the Author: Nina Taunton is a lecturer in English at Brunel University. She has published several essays and refereed articles on Renaissance drama, and is co-editor of The Body in Late Medieval and Early Modern Culture (Ashgate, 2000).

The conflict in Cote d'Ivoire has the characteristics of Shakespearean drama - the key figures are larger than life, each with a fatal flaw, and the self-destructive path each is following is clearly visible to all but themselves. Mike McGovern's book gives full play to the vibrant personalities involved, from Felix Houphouet-Boigny, 'The Ram', who cannily managed Ivorian politics for the country's first 33 years of independence, to the contemporary First Lady Simone Gbagbo. However, the analysis is of the dynamics in place that give certain predictability to the actions of each of the key figures in the drama. Does the conflict in Cote d'Ivoire derive from 'real' problems such as inter-ethnic competition within a shrinking economy, or is it in some way a series of man-made disasters, a kind of grotesque misunderstanding created out of hate-filled rhetoric? The answer proposed throughout is that since the 1990s politicians in Cote d'Ivoire have concentrated on perfecting the art of 'instrumentalising realities', or manipulating and amplifying existing tensions and resentments, and turning them into political capital., Boston, MA Faber and Faber, 1987.

Dennis Christopher George Potter (17 May 1935 – 7 June 1994) was an English television dramatist, screenwriter and journalist. Beginning with contributions to BBC television's The Wednesday Play anthology series from 1965, he peaked with The Singing Detective (1986), a BBC TV serial for which he is best remembered. This work and many of his other widely acclaimed television dramas mixed fantasy and reality, the personal and the social and often used themes and images from popular culture. A sufferer from psoriatic arthropathy for most of his adult life, Potter made regular public pronouncements on issues dear to him. Hide and Seek (1973) was a meta-fictional novel exploring the relationship between reader and author and contains a central protagonist, 'Daniel Miller', who is convinced he is the plaything of an omniscient author. This concept forms the core of Potter's next two novels, and portions of Hide and Seek would reappear in several of his television plays (most notably Follow the Yellow Brick Road and The Singing Detective, respectively). Ticket to Ride (1986) was written between drafts of The Singing Detective and concerns a herbithologist who is unable to make love to his wife unless he imagines her as a prostitute. I couldn't put it down. You have to really follow it, a few times I had to go back and read a chapter again. I like movies and books that make you think and keep you wondering. I've never read a book like this before...It was like reading a long poem intertwined with a novel.I think there could be different interpretations to the ending., Faber and Faber, 1987.
