Download Free Three Plays PDF by Euripides Full Book and published by Penguin UK. This book was released on 2005-05-26 with total page 192 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: One of the greatest playwrights of Ancient Greece, the works of Euripides (484-406 BC) were revolutionary in their depiction of tragic events caused by flawed humanity, and in their use of the gods as symbols of human nature. The three plays in this collection show his abilities as the sceptical questioner of his age. Alcestis, an early drama, tells the tale of a queen who offers her own life in exchange for that of her husband; cast as a tragedy, it contains passages of satire and comedy. The tragicomedy Iphigenia in Tauris melodramatically reunites the ill-fated children of Agamemnon, while the pure tragedy of Hippolytus shows the fatal impact of Phaedra's unreasoning passion for her chaste stepson. All three plays explore a deep gulf that separates man from woman, and all depict a world dominated by amoral forces beyond human control.

Book excerpt: Vigilance: Winner of the John Golden Prize Virgil, Dick, and Bert have gotten together under the guise of "poker night" to discuss a new resident, a man whose violent outbursts threaten their neighborhood. When the evening ends in murder, none of them know who is responsible, but all of their lives are changed by the revelation of who has betrayed whom. Ghost in the Light "A unheralded little gem...terrific writing."--Douglas Gordy, Slant Magazine Based on the life of Han Van Meegeren, Ghost in the Light portrays one of the greatest art forgers in history. In the 1930s, Han's painting, Jesus at Emmaus, was declared "not just a Vermeer, but Vermeer's finest work", and sold for half a million dollars. The world's leading art critics were caught up in the scandal when a number of his "Vermeers" were recovered in postwar Nazi loot. The Stone Trilogy "A riveting, emotional journey...stunning."--Wanda Sabir, The San Francisco Bay View Kaleidoscopic and darkly funny, The Stone Trilogy presents three interrelated one-acts that portray the face of love, forgiveness, and oppression in three countries: Ireland during The Troubles, South Africa at the end of Apartheid, and the United States. Together, the plays present an emotional journey through the difficult nature of forgiveness.
Download Free Three Plays PDF by Charles Williams Full Book and published by Wipf and Stock Publishers. This book was released on 2009-08-01 with total page 220 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The Early Metaphysical Plays of Charles Williams (put in larger font at top of back page) Behold three plays by a major member of the Inklings, Charles Williams, none of which has been reprinted since 1930. The editor of his Collected Plays (1963) thought them unworthy of inclusion, but these works so surpass the general run of contemporary productions as to reveal how fresh an artist Williams was. We have been long deprived of these intriguing accomplishments. The Witch would hold the stage at any time, whereas The Chaste Wanton reads like a first rate radio drama of the 1930s. Rites of the Passion is an Easter liturgical choral work, first cousin to W. H. Auden's For the Time Being. With Three Plays, Williams anticipated the revival of the British religious verse drama by half a decade. These theological adventures are the forerunners of the plays of T. S. Eliot, Dorothy L. Sayers, and Christopher Fry. An excellent entry into Williams's world.

Download Free Racine: Three Plays PDF by Jean Racine Full Book and published by Bloomsbury Publishing. This book was released on 2010-11-19 with total page 312 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Includes the plays Britannicus, Phedra and Berenice Jean Racine is the greatest tragedian of the French seventeenth century, using its strict rules and conventions to tell stories of overwhelming passion and cruelty. This volume brings together three of his greatest plays. Britannicus, the earliest, is set in the court of the young Emperor Nero, and in an atmosphere seething with erotic tension, documents the power-struggles surrounding the birth of a legendary despot. Berenice probes the hearts of two lovers as they are torn apart amidst the splendours of Imperial Rome, and in Phedra, the most famous of the three, a woman betrayed by her own desires descends into a personal hell of shame, guilt and remorse. These classic versions, by two of the country's most distinguished director-translators, prove that Racine is far from untranslatable; they offer blisteringly effective poetry, urgent plotting and powerhouse roles for both actors and actresses.

Illegal immigrants afraid of being arrested for a good deed. A philosopher who burns her own books. A woman seeking forgiveness for crimes she didn’t commit.
