Huis Clos
Sartre, Jean Paul
ISBN: 0415040035
Routledge U. K. 1987 1st Edition
12mo Glossy Soft Cover 106 pages. Includes the full French text of the play, accompanied by French-English vocabulary. Notes and a detailed introduction in English put the work in its social and historical context. "Hui Clos" is arguably Sartre’s best play and has enjoyed Wide popularity since its first performance in Paris in 1944. Its success, not only in France, but also in many other countries, is to a great extent due to its dramatic qualities: anyone can appreciate the highly-charged atmosphere of this representation of hell. But "Hui Clos", perhaps more than any of his other plays, gives compelling expression to some of Sartre’s existentialist ideas. "Hui Clos" is reissued here with a new introduction in which Keith Gore situates the play in the context both of its time and of Sartre’s career. He focuses on the relationship between Sartre an existentialism and the drama, showing how Sartre’s views on the theatre. are consistent with his philosophy, and how "Hui Clos" may be seen as reflecting those views. One of the things that emerges from this reading of the play is the error of believing that Sartre intended it to show that ‘Hell is other people’. "Hui Clos", is also a French-language drama film from 1954, directed by Jacqueline Audry, written by Jean-Paul Sartre, and starring Jean-Marie Amato and Louis de Funes.  Very Good

Taste of Shakespeare
Hamilton, Elaine; Livingston, John
ISBN: 0582688159
Longman Australia 1982 Reprint
12mo Pictorial Soft Cover xx + 87 pages. As the title implies, this book is meant as an introduction to the works and world of William Shakespeare. The plays from which extracts have been chosen are those that tradition has judged as being most suitable for study by secondary school students. They include tragedies, comedies and histories. The book has two main purposes. For those grades and classes which would ?nd the study or reading of a complete play beyond their abilities or too time-consuming in terms of other curriculum commitments, this selection aims at providing at least a ‘taste’ of Shakespeare’s genius, a brief acquaintance with the themes of some of his better known plays and speeches, and some insight into the lasting effect he has had on our language. A second purpose is to assist in decision making for those classes which are going to study a Shakespearean play and have the freedom to make their own choice. This brief introduction could help the class itself become involved in that decision making and so approach the play more readily. Hopefully, the book may also revive old memories for adults who read the plays in their school days. For secondary school students. Ex-library book covered in adhesive transparent plastic.  Good
