Taking as notional parameters the upheaval of the French Revolution and the events leading up to the Unification of Italy, this volume charts a period of political and social turbulence in Europe and its reflection in theatrical life. Apart from considering external factors like censorship and legal sanctions on theatrical activity, the volume examines the effects of prevailing operational conditions on the internal organization of companies, their repertoire, acting, stage presentation, playhouse architecture and the relationship with audiences. Also covered are technical advances in stage machinery, scenography and lighting, the changing position of the playwright and the continuing importance of various street entertainments, particularly in Italy, where dramatic theatre remained the poor relation of the operatic, and itinerant acting troupes still constituted the norm. The 460 documents, many of them illustrated, have been drawn from sources in Britain, France and Italy and have been annotated, and translated where appropriate.
.".. I see the world differently. I see famous people. Rich, poor, the great, And the not so great. Some die young, And others die old. Some have many friends, And others don't. It's not my purpose to ask why. It's not my purpose to understand. I must somehow find My own purpose in life."
Since the death of his sister in 2013, Richard Adcock has been searching for the meaning of life and answers to life's greatest questions through poems that explore grief, loneliness, and pain and consider whether God really understands the human heart.
With a raw and emotionally honest style, Adcock shares poignant reflections that contemplate his search for a purpose, his past, the consequences of unhealthy choices, the joys of new life, and the journey of death. Through his moving poems, Adcock demonstrates to others that no matter what our challenges, we are all in this life together.
"Sometimes I Daydream" offers a lyrical glimpse into one man's walk through his trials as he works through loss, questions his purpose, and learns to view the world differently.
