    It depends on what one means by "climax".
    Most critics agree on the fact the "play-within-the play" - that truly contains a fiction within itself! - is the climax of the play, but according to...

    To start with, I'd begin by saying by no means Hamlet was guilty of cowardice. This should be considered a romantic myth, not actuality.
    Him procrastinating the killing of Claudius is not due to...

    I'm reading some of Rudolf Steiner's conferencies on Faust(both parts) and they prove to be excellent readings of the work.

    As stlukesguild already said, t's very difficult naming just a few artworks and artists.

    As I've pointed out somewhere else, I have to say Rembrandt's "The Return of the Prodigal Son" seems to me...

    Poll: Thinking about it, I don't even know if Beckett...

    Thinking about it, I don't even know if Beckett really belonged to the theatre of the absurd, since it was a precise label, and Beckett was foreign to labels!
    Of course he was one of the most...

    Interesting debate! I'll try to express my opinion, but sorry for my bad english!
    Discussing what are the limits of the interpretation is indeed a thorny problem; I think every work, especially the...

    I don't know very much about Marlowe - since I've just read Doctor Faustus - so I can't tell if his "ideology" was rooted in Calvinism. But I have to say I don't believe he was supposing...
  9. Other than his Faustus I'm yet to read anything...

    Other than his Faustus I'm yet to read anything by Marlowe but I'm planning to do that as soon as possible!
    Anyway, what do you people think about Marlowe's "use" of the chain of being? Did it...

    I've never read anything by Ionesco;
    anyway, Beckett's use of the words is what makes him so interesting in my opinion.
    I don't even know if Beckett's "theatre" could be labelled as "absurdist"...

    Aside from the most known ones, italian Carlo Emilio Gadda is surely one. He was a brilliant writer and his baroque style happened to be a mix of so many languages and dialects to make a reading...

    I have decided to revive this long-dead topic since I've just finished re-reading Beckett's Godot.
    I posted here because of the post of Jolly McJollyso, a very interesting one, evaluating the...

    In his "On the Genealogy of Moralities" Nietzsche pretty much summarized that well: what does it matter about the artist himself? It's very likely Homer wouldn't have created Achilles, neither Goethe...

    That's an interesting and complicated matter!
    I don't think there's a "necessary" approach to art; as art itself stands as impossible to be defined it's difficult estabilishing how one should...

    I agree with St.Luke about Goya: the anxiety in his works seems to anticipate some of the 20th century's artworks, especially considering his works are impenetrable so one can't just focus on...

    Yeah, El Greco was as relevant for expressionism as he was for the likes of Picasso.
    I have to admit I've not been through El Greco's work a lot, so far, but what's really amazing about his artworks...

    Yeah, I've not been within his poetry a lot, but from what I've read I can confirm he was pretty much a great artist in every artistic field, not to mention he's my favourite sculptor, after Bernini....

    Thanks to ftil for the links!
    I agree on the parallel between Bosch and Grunewald, I'm quite interested in Bosch, as wells; the latter is unparalled when it comes to density of simbolism and...

    I'm really intered in Michelangelo and I'm sure he has been the greatest master of the Reinassence in a time where the likes of Titian, Raffaello or Leonardo were around. His greatness was such that...

    Sorry for being late!

    Believe it or not it's been a week now since I started looking for the essay by Prosser but couldn't find it, it's a shame! I just got to read some excerpts from it, and all...

    Yeah, I think I'll watch Guiness' adaptation; the only Lear adaptations I've seen are the versions by Peter Brook and "Ran" by Akira Kurosawa, which I ranks as one of cinema's greatest achievments,...

    Yeah, I'm having troubles getting accustomed to Shakespeare's poetic, but I'll work on it!
    Of course Shakespeare's universalism doesn't imply he can be forced into a contemporary interpretation/view...
