|ISBN:||9781855661691||Author:||Susan Paun De García, Donald R Larson|
|For many reasons, but most usually the lack of playable modern translations, the plays of the seventeenth-century Spanish Comedia have appeared infrequently on the stages of the English-speaking world. Once such translations began to appear in the final decades of the twentieth century, productions followed and audiences were once again given the opportunity of discovering the ermous riches of this theatre.The bringing of Spanish seventeenth-century verse plays to the contemporary English-speaking stage involves a number of fundamental questions. Are verse translations preferable to prose, and if so, what kind of verse? To what degree should translations aim to be faithful ? Which kinds of plays work , and which do t? Which values and customs of the past present difficulties for contemporary audiences, and which need to be decoded in performance? Which kinds of staging are suitable, and which are t? To what degree, if any, should one aim for authenticity in staging? And so on.In this volume, a distinguished group of translators, directors, and scholars explores these and related questions in illuminating and thought-provoking essays. Editors include: Susan Paun de Garcia and Donald Larson are Associate Professors of Spanish at the Universities of Denison and Ohio State respectively. Other contributors include: Isaac Benabu, Catherine Boyle, Victor Dixon, Susan Fischer, Michael Halberstam, David Johnston, Catherine Larson, A. Robert Lauer, Dakin Matthews, Anne McNaughton, Barbara Mujica, James Parr, Dawn Smith, Jonathan Thacker, and Sharon Voros.|
