From concept to practice the various terms applied to this form of theatre are described, particularly 'Chamber Theatre'. (Performed by a handful of players in a small and intimate venue combining narration with dialogue.)

Part 1 of this book examines the English contribution to the 'American Revolution', and the various models of relationship between Britain and America that existed for writers in the 'American... More > Renaissance'. Part 2 considers the politics of James Fenimore Cooper, and the inspirational role of the English Romantics in the thinking of Emerson and the art of Bryant, Thoreau, Hawthorne and Poe, Melville, Whitman and Dickinson. An epilogue explores how Dickinson and Whitman responded to the seductive music of Alfred Lord Tennyson. “How this study is received will say as much about the recovery of serious interest in literary history as about the work’s quality. Learned, rigorous in testing its assertions, mordant and spirited in its expression, Romantic Dialogues makes one wonder how one ever read the American text at all without the British context. …. An extraordinary achievement” —Robert Weisbuch, New England Quarterly< Less

Dawn of the Life By John O'Loughlin
eBook (ePub): $11.71
'Dawn of the Life' is a composite of two projects, viz. the dialogues of 'The Transcendental Future' (1980) and the essays of 'The Way of Evolution' (1981) and therefore combines dialogues with... More > essays in a largely philosophical text which has the additional benefit of both an introductory outline and an aphoristic appendix, as per custom for John O'Loughlin's works at this comparatively early stage of his development as a self-taught philosopher, or thinking man's literary writer.
