Tagores bekanntestes Bühnenstck ist das 1912 erschienene Drama Dakghar (Das Postamt), das als ein Meisterwerk des symbolischen Theaters gilt. Von der Fachkritik wird das Stück häufig als ein Rückblick Tagores auf seine Kindheit gelesen. Im Gegensatz zu seinem anderen Meisterwerk, dem 1910 veröffentlichten Drama Raja (Der König der dunklen Kammer), kommt Das Postamt ohne folkloristische Liedeinlagen und tiefgründig-rätselhafte Dialoge aus. Im Mittelpunkt der Handlung steht Amal, ein sterbenskranker Junge, der von seinem Pflegevater gezwungen wird, in einem kleinen Zimmer zu leben, damit er nicht den gefährlichen Einflüssen der Umwelt ausgeliefert ist. Amal gefällt das nicht. Er fühlt sich wie ein Verbrecher, den man eingekerkert hat. Von einem Stuhl aus, den er an das Fenster gestellt hat, blickt Amal auf die Straße und verfolgt das bunte Treiben der Menschen. Mit seinen Blicken sucht er die Freiheit, das Leben, die Welt und die Natur. Manchmal gelingt es ihm, mit einem der Menschen, die an seinem Fenster vorübergehen, zu sprechen. Er klammert sich an jedes Wort, das ihm zufliegt, nimmt am Schicksal der Menschen teil und genießt in seiner Phantasie alle Freiheiten des Lebens. (Zitat aus buecher-wiki.de) Die Serie "Meisterwerke der Literatur" beinhaltet die Klassiker der deutschen und weltweiten Literatur in einer einzigartigen Sammlung.

Pick up The New York Public Library Literature Companion to check the dates of Marcel Proust's Remembrance of Things Past or to find out how James Joyce's Ulysses changed U.S. obscenity laws, and you may find yourself hours later absorbed in the imaginary worlds of Camelot and The Matrix or sidetracked by the fascinating history of The New Yorker. Designed to satisfy the curious browser as well as the serious researcher, this exciting new resource offers the most up-to-date information on literature available in English from around the world, from the invention of writing to the age of the computer. Interwoven throughout the more than 2,500 succinct and insightful entries on Creators, Works of Literature, and Literary Facts and Resources are the fascinating facts and quirky biographical details that make literature come alive. Readers will discover, for instance, that Walt Whitman was fired from his government job after his personal copy of Leaves of Grass was discovered in his desk by the Secretary of the Interior, who was scandalized by it; that James Baldwin remembered listening to blues singer Bessie Smith ("playing her till I fell asleep") when he was writing his first book; and that a publisher turned down the serialization rights to Gone with the Wind, saying, "Who needs the Civil War now -- who cares?" Looking for information about book burning or how many Nobel laureates have come from Japan? You'll find it here. Trying to remember the name of that movie based on a favorite book? Read the "Variations" section -- you'll be amazed at the pervasive presence of great literature in today's entertainment. From Aristophanes to Allende, from Bergson to Bloom, the biographical entries will inform readers about the men and women who have shaped -- and are shaping -- the literary world. Look into "Works of Literature" to discover the significance of Beowulf, The Fountainhead, Doctor Zhivago, and nearly 1,000 other titles. Check the "Dictionary of Literature" to find out what the critics and theorists are talking about. And if you wish to delve even deeper, "Websites for Literature" and "Literary Factbooks and Handbooks" are just two of the bibliographies that will point readers in the right direction. Unique in scope and design and easy to use, The New York Public Library Literature Companion will be at home on every reader's shelf. Whether you are immersed in Stephen King or King Lear, this book has the insights, facts, and fascinating stories that will enrich your reading forever.

Was uns Shakespeare über Trump, Putin und Co. verrät Wie kann es sein, dass eine große Nation in die Hände eines Tyrannen fällt? Warum akzeptieren die Menschen die Lügen eines Mannes, der ihrem Land so offensichtlich schadet? Und gibt es eine Chance, den Tyrannen zu stoppen, ehe es zu spät ist? In seinen Dramen - von "Richard III." bis "Julius Cäsar" - hat sich William Shakespeare immer wieder mit diesen Fragen beschäftigt und vom Aufstieg der Tyrannen, von ihrer Herrschaft und ihrem Niedergang erzählt. Stephen Greenblatt, einer der renommiertesten Shakespeare-Experten unserer Zeit, zeigt uns, wie präzise und anschaulich der Dichter aus Stratford das Wesen der Tyrannei eingefangen hat – und wie erschreckend aktuell uns dies heute erscheint.

The sixth edition, published in 2000, was extensively revised, expanded, and updated. Almost 600 new entries covered new writers, genres, and issues, and existing entries were reworked to incorporate the latest scholarship. The text was written by a team of more than 140 contributors under MargaretDrabble's editorial direction, including Brian Aldiss, Lisa Appignanesi, Jonathan Coe, Penelope Fitzgerald, Roy Porter, and Salman Rushdie. In addition to the extensive coverage of writers, works, literary theory, allusions, and characters, there are sixteen featured entries on key topics includingblack British literature, fantasy fiction, and modernism.

The sixth edition is now being reissued to ensure that it remains absolutely up to date: the invaluable appendices - the chronology, and lists of winners of major literary awards - have been updated, as have many of the entries.

Tying in with the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's death, this much-loved Companion has been revised and updated, reflecting developments and discoveries made in recent years and to cover the performance, interpretation, and the influence of Shakespeare's works up to the present day.

These include more than 80 new entries, ranging from important performers, directors, and scholars (such as Lucy Bailey, Samuel West, and Alfredo Michel Modenessi), to topics as diverse as Shakespeare in the digital age and the ubiquity of plants in Shakespeare's works, to the interpretation of Shakespeare globally, from Finland to Iraq. To make information on Shakespeare's major works easier to find, the feature entries have been grouped and placed in a centre section (fully cross-referenced from the A-Z). The thematic listing of entries - described in the press as 'an invaluable panorama of the contents' - has been updated to include all of the new entries. This edition contains a preface written by much-lauded Shakespearian actor Simon Russell Beale.
