The definitive guide to the life and work of Antonin Artaud Antonin Artaud's theatre of cruelty is one of the most vital forces in world theatre, yet the concept is one of the most frequently misunderstood. In this incisive study, Albert Bermel looks closely at Artaud's work as a playwright, director, actor, designer, producer and critic, and provides a fresh insight into his ideas, innovations and, above all, his writings. Tracing the theatre of cruelty's origins in earlier dramatic conventions, tribal rituals of cleansing, transfiguration and exaltation, and in related arts such as film and dance, Bermel examines each of Artaud's six plays for form and meaning, as well as surveying the application of Artaud's theories and techniques to the international theatre of recent years.

Cruelty and Desire in the Modern Theater

Antonin Artaud, Sarah Kane, and Samuel Beckett

Departing from a refreshing look at the ideas of Antonin Artaud, this book provides a thorough analysis of how both Sarah Kane and Samuel Beckett are indebted to his legacy. In juxtaposing these playwrights, De Vos minutely points out how both in their own way struggle with coming to terms with Artaud. A key concept in Lacanian psychoanalytic theories, desire lies at the root of the Theatre of Cruelty; Kane and Beckett prove that desire and cruelty are inextricably linked to one another, but that they appear in radically different disguises. Relying on Kane and Beckett, this book not only sheds a light on the precise intentions behind Artaud's project, it also maps out the structural parallels and dichotomies between the Theatre of Cruelty and the literary genre of tragedy.

The Medieval Theater of Cruelty

Rhetoric, Memory, Violence

Why did medieval dramatists weave so many scenes of torture into their plays? Exploring the cultural connections among rhetoric, law, drama, literary creation, and violence, Jody Enders addresses an issue that has long troubled students of the Middle Ages. Theories of rhetoric and law of the time reveal, she points out, that the ideology of torture was a widely accepted means for exploiting such essential elements of the stage and stagecraft as dramatic verisimilitude, pity, fear, and catharsis to fabricate truth. Analyzing the consequences of torture for the history of aesthetics in general and of drama in particular, Enders shows that if the violence embedded in the history of rhetoric is acknowledged, we are better able to understand not only the enduring "theater of cruelty" identified by theorists from Isidore of Seville to Antonin Artaud, but also the continuing modern devotion to the spectacle of pain.

Japanese Horror and the Transnational Cinema of Sensations undertakes a critical reassessment of Japanese horror cinema by attending to its intermediality and transnational hybridity in relation to world horror cinema. Neither a conventional film history nor a thematic survey of Japanese horror cinema, this study offers a transnational analysis of selected films from new angles that shed light on previously ignored aspects of the genre, including sound design, framing techniques, and lighting, as well as the slow attack and long release times of J-horror’s slow-burn style, which have contributed significantly to the development of its dread-filled cinema of sensations.

Albert Speer wurde in der Nachfolge von Paul Ludwig Troost zum ersten Architekten Adolf Hitlers. Mehr und mehr kontrollierte er Entscheidungen über das Baugeschehen im ganzen Reich. 1942 avancierte er zum Rüstungsminister. Seine Gebäude und Entwürfe sind bis heute der Inbegriff der NS-Architektur. Albert Speer fand seit 1934 das Vertrauen von Adolf Hitler und wurde bald sein bevorzugter Architekt. Er entwarf Großbauten auf dem Nürnberger Reichsparteitagsgelände, die Neue Berliner Reichskanzlei und plante eine Neugestaltung der Hauptstadt in bislang ungekannten Größendimensionen. Kaum ein Architekt hatte jemals zuvor eine so große Machtfülle. Albert Speer war Angeklagter im Nürnberger Prozess und wurde als Kriegsverbrecher zu 20 Jahren Haft verurteilt. Speers Karriere, sein architektonisches Gesamtwerk sowie seine Zusammenarbeit mit Hitler und der Einfluss seiner Memoiren auf die Architekturgeschichtsschreibung nach 1945 werden im vorliegenden Buch erstmals auf der Grundlage umfangreichen Quellenstudiums umfassend dargestellt.
