    1 thought on “Shakespeare nostro contemporaneo

    1. Just finished Jan Kott’s SHAKESPEARE OUR CONTEMPORARY, the influential study from 1964. Kott’s vision is consistently arresting, but it isn’t Shakespeare’s. For instance, the Erasmian humor of MIDSUMMER, Kott views as “brutal,” akin to Goya’s (or Iago’s). Forcing meanings on the plays, he over-privileges the absurd.

    2. Written in the 60s by a Polish Professor whose been woken up at 4 am one too many times by the police, Shakespeare our contemporary suggests that Shakespeare is not as mythical or as distant as most academics would have him. Kott's engaging style helps his argument more than his argument does, although he does make some good points in favour of Shakespeare's humanity. He can also get very side-tracked:There is another kind of historical tragedy, originating in the conviction that history has no [...]

    3. I had heard of Jan Kott's "Shakespeare: Our Contemporary" since my theatre school days at CalArts (1977-1979), but never read his work. Several months ago I was able to read Kott's "Eating of the Gods" which was his take on Greek theatre and that was one of the best and most personal interpretations of theatre I have ever been privileged to read. "Shakespeare: Our Contemporary" is a terrific resource. Kott's writing has influenced Peter Brook and Charles Marowitz and therefore all Shakespeare si [...]

    4. This is really good criticism. Granted, I don't read a lot of Shakespeare criticism, but when I do a play from now on, I'll be going back to this well thought out book. Kott suggests that most all of Shakespeare's plays boil down to the march of history and the succession of power. As usurpers kill to take the thrown, upset the order of the kingdom and are ultimately brought down by another usurper, who, at the time, is saving the kingdom from an unjust king, but in order to climb the stairs of [...]

    5. I found this book to be a period piece. I'm pretty lefty in my politics, but this comes from that Cold War era when everybody, regardless of their historical era, was being re-cast as a Marxist. "Shakespeare Our Economic Determinist" or something like that, would have been a good title. I found the writing lazy, the argument merely de rigeur for the era, and the literary interpretation disastrous. Of course I only read about 35 pages and then dipped in to about 3 more highly repetitive and drabl [...]

    6. Kott is like a New Historicist avant la lettre. He reads William Shakespeare in the context of the political realities of the Cold War. Thus, the categories he employs in his study of the plays are drawn not from conventional literary criticism (figures of speech, prosody, etc.) but from history, and particularly political and cultural events of postwar Eastern Europe. A great alternative to studies of Shakespeare that focus on the psychology of characters or textual instabilities.

    7. Remains essential reading if you want to think seriously about the theatre. I'm always sort of surprised there are any complaints about Kott, for this re-invented shakespeare and in some ways modern theatre. Perhaps only ted hughes book on WS and some of Berryman come close. (Bloom is the kitsch version of serious thought on WS). Also a model of how to explain the intersect of politics, history, and art.

    8. Letto e riletto. Certo è che con l'andare del tempo, dopo aver scoperto il saggio di Bloom, alcune delle tesi di Kott sembrano essere piuttosto arbitrarie. Ovviamente parlando pur sempre con grande stima e rispetto per il critico polacco. Immagino sia una questione di età. Maturando si passa da Kott a Bloom per chissà tornare a Kott.Sicuramente la sua analisi del "Sogno di una notte di mezza estate" non incontra il mio assenso.Comunque pur sempre un faro.

    9. Yeah, I know this is supposed to be such an influential book in the area of Shakespeare study and production -- influenced Peter Brook's famous white box production of Midsummer Night's Dream and other productions, but I really didn't think it was all that. But then again, what do I really know? I guess I should read it again, but somehow I can't make myself do that.

    10. This is a short, excellent compendium of criticism of all Shakespeare's plays. Without the literary references and complex insights of Harold Bloom (the best), it explains in simple language the author's take on Shakespeare's plays.

    11. Dzieło ponadczasowe, błyskotliwe interpretacje, styl mięsisty i przykuwający. Genialne. Ta książka wyznaczy trasę wszystkich moich kolejnych spotkań z Szekspirem i szekspirologami.

    12. I continue to go to this book whenever I pick up Shakespeare. Plays by chapter. Not comprehensive of Shakespeare's works, but each chapter is a jewel.
