Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2005 im Fachbereich Anglistik - Literatur, Note: 2.0, Universität Leipzig, 13 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Am 8. Mai 1956 wurde in London ein neues Theaterstück aufgeführt, das die englische Theaterlandschaft grundlegend verändern sollte. Es wurde von einer Bühnenrevolution gesprochen, von einer Bombe, die schliesslich explodierte und auf die eine ganze Generation geradezu sehnsüchtig gewartet hatte. Look Back in Anger von John Osborne wurde als Meilenstein gesehen in der Entwicklung des englischen Nachkriegstheaters und hat bis heute nicht wesentlich an Bedeutung eingebüßt. Das wichtigste Kennzeichen des Stückes wird sofort in der ersten Szene des Werkes deutlich. Hier wird eine Emotion in Szene gesetzt, die dem Ausdruck einer gesamten Generation in England entsprach und die bis zu diesem Zeitpunkt nur wenig Raum auf der Bühne gefunden hatte. John Osborne gab dem Zorn einen dramatischen Ausdruck und benutzte die Stärke dieser Emotion um seine Intention deutlich zu machen. Zum ersten Mal standen Gefühle im Mittelpunkt im Royal Court Theatre am 8. Mai 1956. Gefühle, die nicht unbedingt als angenehm empfunden wurden, sondern vielmehr als schockierend und demaskierend. Die extreme Stärke der Emotion des Zorns wird hierbei als ein Mittel gesehen, um nicht nur die Wut, Enttäuschung und Abscheu gegenüber einem Teil der Gesellschaft deutlich zu machen, sondern vielmehr um den Zuschauer das Gefühl als solches wieder näherzubringen. Osborne versucht somit den Zuschauer zu bewegen seine Einstellung gegenüber der Emotion zu verändern und diese wieder verstärkt zuzulassen. Der Schriftsteller sieht nur im Zorn noch das Mittel dies zu erreichen. Diese Einstellung Osbornes erhellt gleichermaßen die Kritik an der gegenwärtigen Gesellschaft, die zunehmend von Konsum, Anonymität und Korruption gekennzeichnet ist. Im folgenden soll auf die Ursachen des Zorns und die mit der Utilisation der Emotion des Zorns verbundene Intention Osbornes eingegangen werden. Das Gewicht liegt folglich nicht auf einer detaillierten Auseinandersetzung mit dem Text, sondern vielmehr auf der Darstellung des Zorns im Zusammenhang mit den äußeren gesellschaftlichen Umständen.

In the summer of 1963, anthropologist Jean Briggs journeyed to the Canadian Northwest Territories (now Nunavut) to begin a seventeen-month field study of the Utku, a small group of Inuit First Nations people who live at the mouth of the Back River, northwest of Hudson Bay. Living with a family as their "adopted" daughter--sharing their iglu during the winter and pitching her tent next to theirs in the summer--Briggs observed the emotional patterns of the Utku in the context of their daily life. In this perceptive and highly enjoyable volume the author presents a behavioral description of the Utku through a series of vignettes of individuals interacting with members of their family and with their neighbors. Finding herself at times the object of instruction, she describes the training of the child toward achievement of the proper adult personality and the handling of deviations from this desired behavior.

Look Back in Anger is one of the few works of drama that are indisputably central to British culture in general, and its name is one of the most well-known in postwar cultural history. Its premiere in 1956 sparked off the first "new wave" of kitchen-sink drama and the cultural phenomenon of the angry young man. The play's anti-hero, Jimmy Porter, became the spokesman of a generation. Osborne's play is a key milestone in "new writing" for British theatre, and the Royal Court-which produced the play-has since become one of the most important new writing theatres in the UK.

A Course in Anger Transformation

The purpose of this book is to offer an effective alternative for managing anger and transforming it into a more productive energy and behavior. Most programs in existence are based on cognitive approaches, which although effective, require much effort and persistence and a longer period of time to exercise control over the emotion of anger. The foundations of the program in this book are relaxation, meditation, and accelerative learning skills. These techniques have been proven to facilitate change with less effort and struggle because they work at the subconscious level. Change and transformation occur more naturally and organically by removing the conscious thinking that change is difficult to achieve and that it requires hard work.

Just as blue eyes or a birthmark may be passed down through the generations, so too are other, far less welcome traits, not all of them physical, but emotional. More in Anger is the poignant story of three generations of women and the emotional legacy that follows each of them throughout the years. In 1915, Opal King marries a man whose past steeped him in anger. Opal’s thwarted dreams, and her husband’s temper, reverberate and influence the life of their elder daughter Pearl. As a child, Pearl mistreats her younger sister, and as an adult woman she mistreats her husband and daughters too, even as she struggles to redeem herself. The youngest of these daughters, Vivien, strives to break free of the familiar pattern before she too passes the damage on to the next generation. The Mayfield family is a hothouse of human relationships; the forces at work are fierce and fragile, formative and destructive. A remarkable novel that explores the emotional and delicate relationships between mothers and daughters, J. Jill Robinson leads the readers up to and through the life of Vivien as she attempts to escape the family’s emotional inheritance.

In 1956 John Osborne's Look Back in Anger changed the course of English theatre. 'Look Back in Anger presents post-war youth as it really is. To have done this at all would be a significant achievement; to have done it in a first play is a minor miracle. All the qualities are there, qualities one had despaired of ever seeing on stage - the drift towards anarchy, the instinctive leftishness, the automatic rejection of "official" attitudes, the surrealist sense of humour . . . the casual promiscuity, the sense of lacking a crusade worth fighting for and, underlying all these, the determination that no one who dies shall go unmourned.' Kenneth Tynan, Observer, 13 May 1956 'Look Back in Anger . . . has its inarguable importance as the beginning of a revolution in the British theatre, and as the central and most immediately influential expression of the mood of its time, the mood of the "angry young man".' John Russell Taylor

Anger is a daily experience. It is encountered in a number of interpersonal, family and occupational situations. Research indicates that even "normal" parents worry that they will lose control of their anger and harm their children. When short-lived and of low intensity, anger may be of some help to us; in contrast, when it is persistent and intense, it is typically highly disruptive.; This text reviews facts and theories of anger. Anger is differentiated from annoyance, fury, rage, hostility and the behaviours of aggression and violence, and attention is paid to understanding anger both as a normal experience and as a clinical disorder. Specific anger diagnoses are presented to describe disruptive anger states and traits. Anger in criminal populations is also discussed and behaviour-analytic, cognitive-constructivist and cross-cultural perspectives are presented in detail.; The book argues that it is important to understand the causes, correlations and outcomes of anger and to develop effective remediation programmes when anger is excessive and disruptive. Thus, following a meta-analyses of the effectiveness of published treatments, two chapters present "ideal" therapy programmes for adult and childhood adolescent anger disorders. Finally, a model is presented to help understand anger development and resolution.
