Human Shadows Bright as Glass: Drama as Speculation and Transformation

Bucknell University Press, 1997 - 271 Seiten
A fresh approach to the dramatic experience is attempted in this book. It begins with a consideration of Edmund Husserl's attempt to clarify our understanding of immediate experience and takes into account Martin Heidegger's and Hans-Georg Gadamer's movements from the phenomenology toward the individual's complex interactions and involvements in a world.

Seite 44 - The reader should be carried forward, not merely or chiefly by the mechanical impulse of curiosity, or by a restless desire to arrive at the final solution ; but by the pleasurable activity of mind excited by the attractions of the journey itself.
Seite 90 - Rather the repetition, makes a reciprocative rejoinder to the possibility of that existence which has-been-there. But when such a rejoinder is made to the possibility in a resolution, it is made in a moment of vision; and as such it is at the same time a disavowal of that which in the "today", is working itself out as the 'past'.
Seite 77 - But tragedians still keep to real names, the reason being that what is possible is credible: what has not happened we do not at once feel sure to be possible: but what has happened is manifestly possible; otherwise it would not have happened.
Seite 45 - During the act of knowledge itself, the objective and subjective are so instantly united, that we cannot determine to which of the two the priority belongs. There is here no first, and no second; both are coinstantaneous and one.
Seite 83 - It is a wretched thing to confess; but it is a very fact that not one word I ever utter can be taken for granted as an opinion growing out of my identical Nature — how can it, when I have no nature?
Seite 203 - And wisdom at one entrance quite shut out. So much the rather thou, celestial Light, Shine inward, and the mind through all her powers Irradiate ; there plant eyes, all mist from thence Purge and disperse , that I may see and tell Of things invisible to mortal sight.
Seite 88 - You and I, the characters which grow on a page, most of the time we're inexpressive, giving little away, unreliable, elusive, evasive, obstructive, unwilling. But it's out of these attributes that a language arises. A language, I repeat, where under what is said, another thing is being said.
Seite 69 - Negative Capability, that is, when a man is capable of being in uncertainties, mysteries, doubts, without any irritable reaching after fact and reason. Coleridge, for instance, would let go by a fine isolated verisimilitude caught from the Penetralium of mystery, from being incapable of remaining content with halfknowledge.
Seite 177 - Everyone should know nowadays the unimportance of the photographic in art: that truth, life, or reality is an organic thing which the poetic imagination can represent or suggest, in essence, only through transformation, through changing into other forms than those which were merely present in appearance.
Seite 215 - And out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof.
