Searching for Sycorax

Sycorax [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Searching for Sycorax by Kinitra D. Brooks Book Summary:

Searching for Sycorax highlights the unique position of Black women in horror as both characters and creators. Kinitra D. Brooks creates a racially gendered critical analysis of African diasporic women, challenging the horror genre’s historic themes and interrogating forms of literature that have often been ignored by Black feminist theory. Brooks examines the works of women across the African diaspora, from Haiti, Trinidad, and Jamaica, to England and the United States, looking at new and canonized horror texts by Nalo Hopkinson, NK Jemisin, Gloria Naylor, and Chesya Burke. These Black women fiction writers take advantage of horror’s ability to highlight U.S. white dominant cultural anxieties by using Africana folklore to revise horror’s semiotics within their own imaginary. Ultimately, Brooks compares the legacy of Shakespeare’s Sycorax (of The Tempest) to Black women writers themselves, who, deprived of mainstream access to self-articulation, nevertheless influence the trajectory of horror criticism by forcing the genre to de-centralize whiteness and maleness.

Trixie

Sycorax [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Trixie by Libby Colman Book Summary:

"Trixie" is a tale told by Caliban to redeem the reputation of his mother, Sycorax, Witch of Algiers. The story embeds the fantasy characters from Shakespeare's play "The Tempest" into historical events of the 16th Century and explores emotional truths about how suppression and helplessness not only generate fear and rage but also inspire a quest for deeper mastery over circumstances. In 1505, Algiers was a decaying seaport ruled by ancient families known as the Baldi when the Spanish Moors began to arrive after the end of their eight centuries' rule in Spain. Many of the refugees became pirates and preyed on European ships, seizing the cargo and taking crews and passengers to the infamous Bagnios of the Barbary Coast, where the captives were held for ransom or sold into slavery. Other newcomers to Algiers, like Musa Ibrahim, turned to legitimate trade. Musa married an Amazigh (Berber) girl named Tazrut. When his first child, Sycorax, was born, Musa thought Allah was punishing him by giving him a girl, even though Sycorax became a lively, intelligent toddler. The household slaves nicknamed her "Trixie" because she was happily curious about everything and sensitive to the moods of both humans and beasts. Unfortunately, she was defiant when her father was angry. She also became upset when she heard about Spanish fleets destroying cities along the Barbary Coast. When she was five, Trixie 'knew' an Armada from Spain was on its way before anyone else. As she grew older, she had recurrent nightmares about the red-bearded Turkish pirate whom her mother's slave, Emilia, called "that devil Barbarossa," but others referred to as the heroic sea captain, Arouj Reis. She woke up screaming from visions of battles and beheadings and was even more distressed when she learned that the events in her dreams occurred in real life. Her father believed she was possessed by a djinni and went to fetch a holy man to perform an exorcism. While he was away, Trixie was smuggled out of the city to her mother's mountain village, where her Grandmother Mayam and Aunt Titrit trained her in the ways of the Goddess. She never learned to like her visions or dreams, but she accepted the suffering she must endured when she saw more than she wanted. Like it or not, she was destined to become a great Kahina, a warrior-priestess who was destined to influence the struggle between the Holy Roman Empire in the west and the Ottoman Empire in the east.

Shakespeare's Demonology

Sycorax [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Shakespeare's Demonology by Marion Gibson,Jo Ann Esra Book Summary:

Is postdramatic theatre political and if so how? How does it relate to Brecht's ideas of political theatre, for example? How can we account for the relationship between aesthetics and politics in new forms of theatre, playwriting, and performance? The chapters in this book discuss crucial aspects of the issues raised by the postdramatic turn in theatre in the late twentieth and early twenty-first century: the status of the audience and modes of spectatorship in postdramatic theatre; the political claims of postdramatic theatre; postdramatic theatre's ongoing relationship with the dramatic tradition; its dialectical qualities, or its eschewing of the dialectic; questions of representation and the real in theatre; the role of bodies, perception, appearance and theatricality in postdramatic theatre; as well as subjectivity and agency in postdramatic theatre, dance and performance. Offering analyses of a wide range of international performance examples, scholars in this volume engage with Hans-Thies Lehmann's theoretical positions both affirmatively and critically, relating them to other approaches by thinkers ranging from early theorists such as Brecht, Adorno and Benjamin, to contemporary thinkers such as Fischer-Lichte, Rancière and others

Freedom Time

Sycorax [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Freedom Time by Anthony Reed Book Summary:

Standard literary criticism tends to either ignore or downplay the unorthodox tradition of black experimental writing that emerged in the wake of protests against colonization and Jim Crow–era segregation. Histories of African American literature likewise have a hard time accounting for the distinctiveness of experimental writing, which is part of a general shift in emphasis among black writers away from appeals for social recognition or raising consciousness. In Freedom Time, Anthony Reed offers a theoretical reading of "black experimental writing" that presents the term both as a profound literary development and as a concept for analyzing how writing challenges us to rethink the relationships between race and literary techniques. Through extended analyses of works by African American and Afro-Caribbean writers—including N. H. Pritchard, Suzan-Lori Parks, NourbeSe Philip, Kamau Brathwaite, Claudia Rankine, Douglas Kearney, Harryette Mullen, and Nathaniel Mackey—Reed develops a new sense of the literary politics of formally innovative writing and the connections between literature and politics since the 1960s. Freedom Time reclaims the power of experimental black voices by arguing that readers and critics must see them as more than a mere reflection of the politics of social protest and identity formation. With an approach informed by literary, cultural, African American, and feminist studies, Reed shows how reworking literary materials and conventions liberates writers to push the limits of representation and expression.

"Secret, Black, and Midnight Hags"

Sycorax [Pdf/ePub] eBook

"Secret, Black, and Midnight Hags" by Dietmar Tatzl Book Summary:

The present dissertation analyses the conception, depiction and functions of witch figures in English Elizabethan and Jacobean drama including their relevant predecessors and successors until the closing of the theatres in 1642. The focus is on malevolent female figures who are linked to black magic and partly prove their supernatural powers on the stage. The applied methodology of analysis has been developed from Manfred Pfister's set of criteria in Das Drama. In the first part of the investigation, the field of witchcraft is essentially described in its cultural and historical context. After a close examination of the witch figures in the main part it becomes evident that figures based on real-life models are generally conceived as more individual, complex and dynamic than those who are partly derived from classical and literary sources. Figures in drama without any connection with real-life trials generally represent the archetypal and universally valid idea of evil that could have never been communicated with the same intensity by old, lonely and isolated women in sixteenth- and seventeenth-century England. In conclusion it should be noted that witch figures in less-known plays deserve more critical attention than they received in the past, and the majority of figures in well-known plays merit reconsideration and reveal new approaches to their interpretation.

'The Tempest' in Context

Sycorax [Pdf/ePub] eBook

'The Tempest' in Context by Keith Linley Book Summary:

How did people think about the world, about God, about sin, about kings, about civilized conduct? Learn about the social hierarchy, gender relationships, parenting and family dynamics, court corruption, class tensions, the concept of tragi-comedy – and all the subversions, transgressions, and oppositions that made the play an unsettling picture of a world attempting to come to terms with capitalism and colonialism while re-addressing the nature of rule.

Women Making Shakespeare

Sycorax [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Women Making Shakespeare by Gordon McMullan,Lena Cowen Orlin,Virginia Mason Vaughan Book Summary:

Women Making Shakespeare presents a series of 20-25 short essays that draw on a variety of resources, including interviews with directors, actors, and other performance practitioners, to explore the place (or constitutive absence) of women in the Shakespearean text and in the history of Shakespearean reception - the many ways women, working individually or in communities, have shaped and transformed the reception, performance, and teaching of Shakespeare from the 17th century to the present. The book highlights the essential role Shakespeare's texts have played in the historical development of feminism. Rather than a traditional collection of essays, Women Making Shakespeare brings together materials from diverse resources and uses diverse research methods to create something new and transformative. Among the many women's interactions with Shakespeare to be considered are acting (whether on the professional stage, in film, on lecture tours, or in staged readings), editing, teaching, academic writing, and recycling through adaptations and appropriations (film, novels, poems, plays, visual arts).
