Utpal Dutt (1929?93), playwright, director and actor, an inspiration and role model for the activist theatre person. Whether through the proscenium theatre, street performance, the traditional strolling theatre-in-the-round, or cinema, Dutt tried to take revolutionary theatre to the widest mass of people, with political messages for every turning point in a highly sensitive and rapidly changing political scenario, redefining his relationship with the political leadership again and again, getting into violent confrontations with various forces, being driven underground, and getting jailed in the process. His legacy of plays and other writing remain a valuable chapter in Indian theatre history. Rights of Man is the first English-language translation of Maanusher Adhikaré, Dutt?s landmark play dramatizing the infamous Scottsboro Trials of African-American boys in the American South of the 1930s. A critical introduction explores the historical context, problems of dramatic translation, and postcolonial aspects of the play. Includes an extensive bibliography and three crucial appendices: other American Scottsboro plays such as Langston Hughes? Scottsboro Limited (1931) and Edgar Nkosi White?s Ghosts: Live from Galilee (1993) and Judge James Horton?s historic trial opinions published in 1931.

Inhaltsangabe: The Rights of Man emerged out of a student-teacher relationship. It started as an educational translation project for Neilesh Bose who, in 2001, had just started as a Ph.D. student in the Department of Drama and Dance at Tufts University, Massachusetts. Sudipto Chatterjee then was a relatively new Assistant Professor there and Neilesh was his first graduate student advisee. Neilesh, an American student of Bengali descent, had come to the programmed with the intention of pursuing a doctoral research project on twentieth-century Bengali drama, but needed to strengthen his skills in speaking and reading Bengali. Translating Maartusher Adhikare was an ideal project considering what needed to be achieved in educational terms. It would expose Neilesh directly to the rhythms of contemporary Bengali drama by means of a landmark play in its history. Neilesh had a special interest in this play as it concerned facets of American civil rights.

Buchbeschreibung Signet Classics Penguin US Jul 2011, 2011. Taschenbuch. Buchzustand: Neu. Neuware - A volume of Thomas Paine's most essential works, showcasing one of American history's most eloquent proponents of democracy. Upon publication, Thomas Paine's modest pamphlet Common Sense shocked and spurred the foundling American colonies of 1776 to action. It demanded freedom from Britain-when even the most fervent patriots were only advocating tax reform. Paine's daring prose paved the way for the Declaration of Independence and, consequently, the Revolutionary War. For 'without the pen of Paine,' as John Adams said, 'the sword of Washington would have been wielded in vain.' Later, his impassioned defense of the French Revolution, Rights of Man , caused a worldwide sensation. Napoleon, for one, claimed to have slept with a copy under his pillow, recommending that 'a statue of gold should be erected to [Paine] in every city in the universe.' Here in one volume, these two complete works are joined with selections from Pain's other major essays, 'The Crisis,' 'The Age of Reason,' and 'Agrarian Justice.' Includes a Foreword by Jack Fruchtman Jr. and an Introduction by Sidney Hook 416 pp. Englisch. Artikel-Nr. 9780451528896
Buchbeschreibung Penguin UK Nov 2015, 2015. Taschenbuch. Buchzustand: Neu. Neuware - H. G. Wells' revolutionary human rights manifesto is reissued by Penguin with a new introduction by fellow novelist and human rights campaigner Ali Smith 'Penguin and Pelican Specials are books of topical importance published within as short a time as possible from receipt of the manuscript. Some are reprints of famous books brought up-to-date, but usually they are entirely new books published for the first time.' H. G. Wells wrote The Rights of Man in 1940, partly in response to the ongoing war with Germany. The fearlessly progressive ideas he set out were instrumental in the creation of the UN's Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the EU's European Convention on Human Rights and the UK's Human Rights Act. When first published, this manifesto was an urgently topical reaction to a global miscarriage of justice. It was intended to stimulate debate and make a clear statement of mankind's immutable responsibilities to itself. Seventy-five years have passed and once again we face a humanitarian crisis. In the UK our human rights are under threat in ways that they never have been before and overseas peoples are being displaced from their homelands in their millions. The international community must act decisively, cooperatively and fast. The Rights of Man is not an 'entirely new book' - but it is a book of topical importance and it has been published, now as before, in as short a time as possible, in order to react to the sudden and urgent need. With a new introduction by award-winning novelist and human rights campaigner Ali Smith, Penguin reissues one of the most important humanitarian texts of the twentieth century in the hope that it will continue to stimulate debate and remind our leaders - and each other - of the essential priorities and responsibilities of mankind. 176 pp. Englisch.
