1 The Heibergs And The Theater: Between Vaudeville, Romantic Comedy And National Drama.
Museum Tuscllanum Press: 2012. Danish Golden Age Studies Series. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. 
Johan Ludvig Heiberg was one of the most famous playwrights, theater critics, and essayists of the Danish Golden Age, and his wife, Johanne Luise Heiberg, was one of its greatest actresses. This first book-length study in English examines the many ways they dominated theatrical life during the period. In these essays, the contributors explore the deep connections between the Heibergs' far-reaching philosophical and political interests and their theatrical careers. More than just a study of Golden Age theater, this book offers an important look into the ideas and arts that constituted one of the richest eras in modern history.

7 ARISTOPHANES; EWANS, MICHAEL (TRANSLATION). Acharnians, Knights, And Peace.
University of Oklahoma Press, Norman: . Volume 45 in the Oklahoma Series in Classical Culture. s Softcover. Brand new book. 
Most readers nowadays encounter the plays of Aristophanes in the classroom, not the theater. Yet the "father of comedy" wrote his plays for the stage, not as literary texts. Many English translations of the plays were written decades ago, and in their outdated language they fail to capture the dramatic liveliness of the original comedies. Here Michael Ewans offers new and lively translations of three of Aristophanes' earliest surviving plays: Acharnians, Knights, and Peace. While remaining faithful to the original Greek, Ewans's translations are accessible to a modern audienceÑand actable on stage. The first two plays in this volume, Acharnians and Knights, satirize the Athenians for their madness in continuing the Peloponnesian War. The third play, Peace, celebrates the end to all the warmongering. This edition contains all that a reader needs to understand these plays within a broader context. In his comprehensive introduction, Ewans discusses historical, political, and social aspects of Aristophanic comedy, the conventions of Greek theater, and the challenges of translating ancient Greek into modern English. In his theatrical commentaries, Ewans draws on his own experience of directing the plays in a replica of the original theater. In scene-by-scene analysis, he provides insight into the major issues each play raises in performance. The volume concludes with two glossariesÑone of proper names and the other of Greek termsÑas well as a bibliography that includes the most recent scholarship on Aristophanic comedy. With its accessible format and design, this book serves as a fitting companion to Ewans's recently published edition of Aristophanes' Lysistrata, The Women's Festival, and Frogs.

8 ARTAUD, ANTONIN. The Theater And Its Double.
Grove Press, New York: 1958. Twelfth Printing. s Softcover. Very good reading copy. 
Translated from the French by Mary Caroline Richards. The first English translation of a collection of manifestos originally published in 1938, is the fullest statement of the ideas of Artaud.
