There is no general consensus about how Shakespeare ´´should´´ be played. There are no rules. But, while the Bard created superhuman characters and placed them in situations that stretch the imagination to its limits, he also provided his actors with the keys to playing them. In A Shakespearean Actor Prepares, actor, director and teacher Adrian Brine teams up with celebrated actor Michael York to reveal these keys. In pointing out sources of energy in Shakespeare´s plays, they make it possible for an actor to galvanize his fantasy - and liberate his talent. Shakespeare knew more about the art of acting and the art of theater than any other playwright. Discover his secrets in this remarkable guide. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Michael York.

The man. The movies. The life. The legend. He´s played a deranged groundskeeper, a bellowing lounge singer, a paranormal exterminator, and a grouchy weatherman. He is William James ´´Bill´´ Murray, America´s greatest national treasure. From his childhood lugging golf bags at a country club to his first taste of success on Saturday Night Live, from his starring roles in Hollywood blockbusters to his reinvention as a hipster icon for the 21st century, The Big Bad Book of Bill Murray chronicles every aspect of his extraordinary life and career. He´s the sort of actor who can do Hamlet and Charlie´s Angels in the same year. He shuns managers and agents, and he once agreed to voice the lead in Garfield because he mistakenly believed it was a Coen Brothers film. He´s famous for crashing house parties all over New York City - and if he keeps photobombing random strangers, he might just break the Internet. Part biography, part critical appreciation, part love letter, and all fun, this enormous volume chronicles every Murray performance in loving detail, recounting all the milestones, legendary ´´Murray stories´´, and controversies in the life of this enigmatic performer. 1.

This study is a concise introduction to Bruno Latours Actor-Network Theory and its application in a literary analysis of urban narratives of the 21st century. We encounter well-known psycho-geographers such as Iain Sinclair and Sam Miller, and renowned authors, Patrick Neate and Suketu Mehta. Prachi More analyses these authors accounts of vastly different cities such as London, Delhi, Mumbai, Johannesburg, New York and Tokyo. Are these urban narratives a contemporary solution to documenting an ever-evasive urban reality? If so, how do they embody matters of concern as Latour would have put it, laying bare modern-day actors and networks rather than reporting mere matters of fact? These questions are drawn into an inter-disciplinary discussion that addresses concerns and questions of epistemology, the sociology of knowledge as well as urban and documentary studies. Prachi More (PhD) taught at the English Studies Department at the University of Tubingen, Germany. Her research interests include New Materialisms, Smart Cities and Weird Fiction.
