Book Description :

Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead is a play which, as it were, takes place in the wings of Hamlet, and finds both humour and poignancy in the situation of the ill-fated attendant lords. The National Theatre production in April 1967 made Tom Stoppard's reputation virtually overnight. Its wit, stagecraft and verbal verve remain as exhilarating as they were then and the play has become a contemporary classic. 'One of the most original and engaging of post-war plays.' Daily Telegraph

Seminar paper from the year 2006 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 1,3, University of Mannheim (Lehrstuhl Anglistik II), course: Classics of 20th Century British Drama, 8 entries in the bibliography, language: English, comment: Analysis of Stoppard's Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are dead from post-modern metadramatic perspective., abstract: The play Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead in its present form is the result of several drafts and older versions of this play, which Tom Stoppard wrote and staged. The first one was Rosencrantz and Guildenstern meet King Lear and was performed by amateur actors at a Ford Foundation cultural picnic in Berlin, in 1964. In this form the play was a one-act comedy in verse.1 In the following years the title changed and Stoppard rewrote the play into prose. At the Edinburgh Festival in 1966 the play had its break through and soon later its script was bought and produced by the National Theatre at the Old Vic. According to the Sunday Times it was "the most important event in the British professional theatre of the last nine years."2 The reason for the enthusiastic reactions towards the play is the fact that it illustrates the confusion of mankind in the post-modern world. Today's pluralism leaves the individual all to himself. The unity, which used to be created by religion, class or moral values, has been split up in favour of countless parallel existing societies with their own moral ideals and goals. Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead is a comical depiction of two friends looking for an orientation in a world, which to them has lost its orders and values. By using Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, who are the two courtiers from Elsinore, from Shakespeare's Hamlet, Stoppard shows an unknown perspective of Hamlet. It is the one of Rosencrantz and Guildenstern. Without knowing the entire plot they experience the action from their point of view and constantly try to find explanations of

Book Description :

In this thesis, I examine Tom Stoppard's rewriting of Shakespeare's Hamlet in th e twentieth century especially through his 1966 Rosencrantz & Guildenstern are D ead. My aim throughout this thesis is to trace Stoppard's rewriting of Shakespea re between 1966 and 1999, and more specifically by focusing on Stoppard's rewrit ing of his own rewriting of Shakespeare when he adapts his play to film. I argue that Rosencrantz & Guildenstern are Dead precedes many of the theories of postm odernism that emerged in the 1970s and 1980s. I highlight language games as a pa rticularly postmodern strategy and a form of "play" in Rosencrantz & Guildenster n are Dead. Moreover, the thesis emphasizes Stoppard's innovative theater in his borrowing and altering techniques and themes from the theaters of Pirandello, B recht, Beckett and others. The first chapter introduces rewriting in the twentieth century, distinguishing between modernist and postmodernist rewritings of classical and canonical texts. The chapter contextualizes Stoppard's Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead in the tradition of twentieth-century modern rewritings of Hamlet. In the second chapter, I probe Stoppard's cultural, linguistic and thematic rewr iting of Hamlet in Rosencrantz & Guildenstern are Dead by attempting to show how the play precedes the theories of postmodernism of Jean-Francois Lyotard, Jean Baudrillard, Frederic Jameson and others. Furthermore, I differentiate between m odernist and postmodernist re/writing by contrasting Stoppard's postmodern aesth etics in Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead to the late modernist ones used b y Beckett in Waiting for Godot; I particularly stress the differences between bo th plays' attitudes toward tradition and "grand narratives." The third chapter presents Stoppard's protean quality through the diversity of s tyles and the variety of media that he uses in re/writing plays. The chapter tra ces Stoppard's other postmodern rewritings of Hamlet in his 1979 Dogg's Hamlet, Cahoot's Macbeth, and most importantly in his rewriting of his own rewriting of Hamlet in the film of Rosencrantz & Guildenstern are Dead in 1990. I also compar e Heiner Muller's postmodern rewriting of Hamlet in The Hamletmachine to Rosencr antz & Guildenstern are Dead. Finally, I analyze Stoppard's interrogation of the figure of Shakespeare in the ...
