In Learning to Perform. Carol Simpson Stern and Bruce Henderson introduce the art and craft of performing literary texts, including poetry, prose fiction, and drama, as well as personal narratives and ethnographic materials. They present a performance methodology that offers instruction in close reading and analysis, the development and refinement of performance skills, and the ability to think critically about and discuss a performance. As students become reacquainted with the world of the imagination and its possibilities, the insights they gain in the classroom can become the basis for achievement not only on the stage or in front of the camera but in many facets of public life. By addressing an expanded sense of text that includes cultural as well as literary artifacts, Stern and Henderson bridge the gap between oral interpretation and the more inclusive field of performance studies. A substantial appendix provides a dozen texts for performance in the classroom, including works by Jane Hamilton, Willa Cather, Henry James, E.M. Forster, Henrik Ibsen, Jane Austen, and Michael S. Bowman.

(Financial Times); in Butterfly Kiss "Nagy captures the texture of a life and writes short, vivid, often disturbingly erotic scenes...it's a play that leaves me proclaiming Nagy a writer of real talent" (Guardian), Disappeared (winner of the Mobil Prize,1995) "A piece that gets right under your skin...There's no neat solution to Nagy's conundrum, just a fog of fear, despair, and most remarkably of all, a final mirage of escape. Spine-tingling stuff" (Daily Telegraph) The Strip, "kaleidoscopic and hugely accomplished dissection of fate, love and chance" (Independent) "Each play I see by Phyllis Nagy confirms me in the belief that she is the finest playwright to have emerged in the 1990s" (Financial Times)

LEVIATHAN — Diskussion 300 Jahre nach Thomas Hobbes

Page: 260

Anlaglich des 300. Todestages von Thomas Hobbes fand im Dezember 1979 an der Universitat Hamburg ein Symposion statt, dessen Referate und Diskussionen hier vorgelegt werden. Intention dieses Symposions war es, durch historisch-systema tische Untersuchungen Hobbes' Staatstheorie in der Perspektive gegenwartsrelevan ter Fragestellungen zu erortern. In der Einleitung zu diesem Band verzichten die Herausgeber darauf, die einzel nen Arbeiten vorzustellen und sie in einen allgemeinen Rahmen einzuordnen. Ver sucht wird vielmehr, eine mosaikartige Skizze einiger weniger aktueller Problemkon stellationen vorzutragen, an denen Kernaussagen der Hobbesschen Theorie erprobt werden konnen. Die Herausgeber sind sich dessen bewulh, dag ihre ad-bonam partem-Interpretation dieser "essentials" Hobbes-philologisch durchaus strittig ist und deshalb auch eingehender Diskussion bediirfte; doch findet sich diese detailliert und kontrovEfs in den vorgelegten Beitragen. Fiir die in der Einleitung beabsichtigte direkte Konfrontation des Hobbes-Politik-Paradigmas mit aktuellen politischen Pro blemkomplexen schien eine philologische Rechtfertigung verzichtbar. Erhofft wird vielmehr eine klare Verdeutlichung der Starken des Hobbes-Paradigmas, ebenso freilich seiner Schwachen, also jener Indikatoren, die fiir die Hypothese sprechen, das Hobbessche Politikverstandnis lasse sich auf zahlreiche relevante Gegenwarts probleme nicht mehr applizieren. Die thematische Konzentration auf die "Aktualitat des Hobbesschen Denkens" gab der Hamburger Tagung gegeniiber den grogen internatio'nalen Hobbes-Tagungen desselben J ahres ihr eigenes Profil. Sowohl das amerikanische Treffen, das in Boul der/Colorado unter der Leitung von Paul Johnson, William Sackstedter und Craig Walton stattfand, wie das internationale Symposion in Leusden/Niederlande unter der Leitung von Dr. Van der Bend waren thematisch sehr viel breiter angelegt.
