Formerly published as "English Renaissance Theatre History: A Reference Guide" by G. K. Hall in 1982, this annotated bibliography of scholarship in the field of Elizabethan theatre history... More > has been out of print for almost 30 years. Most academic libraries have a copy in their reference departments, and this classic is now available for the personal libraries of students and scholars in the field. It has never been easier to review the academic literature in such areas as reconstructions of Shakespeare's Globe Playhouse, and other public and private playhouses of Shakespeare's London; the court masques; Inigo Jones; Richard Burbage and other actors of the time; the Lord Mayor's Shows; Puritan opposition to the stage; and other such topics. The terminal date of 1979 reflects the date of original production, but with this tool it is a simple matter for the scholar to update his or her review of the literature. The comprehensive Index is invaluable, and Stevens also provides a preface and introduction.< Less

Here laying more stress on modern tragic vision, it is generally democratized, but comparatively speaking this is more true of Arthur Miller than Eugene O’Neill’s. O’Neill takes a... More > much more perspicacious ,psychological approach that renders the psyche bare and illustrates his view that science and its brainchild of materialism , offers no psychic balm or emotional solace to mankind. O’Neill’s tragic vision thus doesn't man but, rather, lays bare the spiritual wasteland that he is in the contemporary materialist world. By contrast, Miller in Death of a Salesman attempts to affirm and reaffirm man within the confines of materialism - a concomitant of capitalism. Other canons of Aristotle, Sri Aurobindo, C.G. Jung, Joseph Campbell , George A. Kelly, Rollo May and Tony Wolfe have also been applied to make the critical study more effective and encompassing .< Less

More > crowds, and earned him a reputation as the "Silver Tongued Preacher". His collected sermons were among the most frequently reprinted religious writings of the Elizabethan age, especially this work “God’s Arrow Against Atheists.” In this book Smith argues that Christianity is the only true religion.

This is a classic work that should not be missed!< Less

The Pride, Fall and Restitution of King Nebuchadnezzar By Henry Smith

More > crowds, and earned him a reputation as the "Silver Tongued Preacher". In this work Henry Smith explains Daniel 4:29-34 concerning the life and actions of king Nebuchadnezzar.

A Treatise on the Lord's Supper By Henry Smith

Henry Smith (ca. 1550–1591) was an English clergyman, widely regarded as "the most popular Puritan preacher of Elizabethan London." In this work on the Lord's Supper, Henry Smith... More > explains 1 Cor. 11:23b-24, “That the Lord Jesus, the same night in which he was betrayed, took bread: And when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, Take eat; this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me.” Smith obliterates the Roman Catholic doctrine of transubstantiation by careful study of the Scriptures, quoting the early church fathers, and showing how the Roman Catholic doctrine (where the bread and wine change into the body and blood of the Lord), is logically impossible and inconsistent. Smith explains succinctly such topics as: the fruit we receive out of the sacrament, unworthy reception of the Supper, and most importantly, the art of self-examination.
