Corneille and the Spanish Tradition. Inspired, above all, by the Spanish tradition and merging different dramatic patterns tragedy and comedy as well as cultural spheres private love and state policy in a very specific way, the play marks a turning point in the history of French literature. It provokes the so-called querelle du Cid, an unprecedented public scandal which constitutes the starting point for the codification of the doctrine classique. My paper aims at revisiting the play and its cultural and historical impact.
For this purpose, I will take into account intertextual references to the Spanish tradition, paratextual self-explanations and textual structures of the drama that have been neglected until now. On this basis, it will be possible to give new insights into the cultural exchanges between early modern Spain and France and to trace the outlines of a new concept of the cultural net. Her fields of expertise include: literary theory; the interrelations between literature, sciences and philosophy from antiquity to the present; postcolonialism; concepts of world literature; history of utopia; concepts of time.

Contributions may include but are not restricted to the following topics: Poetics of Early Modern Drama Conceived in a broad sense, the term poetics covers not only the normative poetics often associated with French classicism and its epigones, but also the metadramatical and metatheatrical knowledge that is inscribed into play texts and their performances, as well as the configurations of power and knowledge that are encoded in dramatic works. This comprehensive approach scrutinises the faultlines between the early modern rulebooks and the actual dramatic texts; it also examines the status and function of drama in early modern societies as envisioned by the plays themselves.
Likewise, such an exploration addresses questions of authority and legitimation as well as subversion and the location of agency. Political, institutional and social practices One can hardly discuss early modern drama substantially without considering its concrete historical political context s. How are political, institutional and social practices, enforced by the state or church e. In what ways do they influence the production and the dissemination of texts? And, in what ways can these practices relate to the individual agency of an author? History of themes and motifs Stoffgeschichte Several terms have been introduced to describe the artefacts that drama consists of, e.
Which terms do mirror which poetics in which times, related to social, political, and cultural conditions? How do semantic nucleus in continuous variation reflect dramatic reality? Which constituents in net structures do enable artefacts to travel and be transformed? On the other hand, they often explore rather undetermined spaces and are object, until today, to scholarly discussion concerning their generic status. Contributions could elaborate on tendencies of creation, affirmation, subversion, or modification, on domination, and disappearance of single genres within the field, as well as on combination, and hybridization of several of them.
Textual traditions and distribution of texts In all fields of scientific and artistic production of the early modern period the abundance of texts and the forms of their availability are reflected upon, welcomed, rejected, or problematized. What emerges is not only and not essentially a material question, but a destabilization of the concept of textual tradition and authority. The focus of attention in this panel may be both on agencies and effects of the media revolution of the end of the 15 th century with regard, above all, to its philosophical and epistemological consequences.
How do these types vary in time and space, related to which agencies? What are their poetical and poetological consequences? They form part of a cognitive mechanism that seems to provide clarity and meaning whilst unconsciously guiding our actions. This panel will discuss the respective merits and drawbacks of the theoretical models that have been suggested in drama studies. Michael Burden Oxford Settling the Repertory: The Pasticcio versus Comic Opera in 18 th -Century London An 18 th -century Italian opera was shaped by the use of recitative containing action and arias whose sentiments reflected on that action.

Will Captain Tom Rowland and Thai paratroopers arrive in time to save Joe Walker from death on the island of lost girls? Ferdinand Bluhme, a judge in juvenile court, doesn't base his sentences of youthful offenders on hardness and possible deterrence, but on empathy and understanding. When a somewhat naive Inge Schumman shows up in his courtroom one day, everyone's surprised to see Dr. Bluhme sentence her to eight months detention for her attempt to blackmail someone at the direction of her boyfriend, Kurt. The harsh sentence, however, is an attempt to draw the girl away from her boyfriend's sphere of influence.
Inge, in turn, threatens to kill herself, so the judge suspends the sentence. But she's not totally off the hook: in place of juvenile hall, the girl is sent to Winkler Inn, where the judge himself lives. It isn't long before Inge's awaking That helps her to pull away from the clutches of Kurt, but the young man is far from ready to let his bait off the hook: he now uses her feelings in an attempt to blackmail the judge.
Jugendrichter Dr. At a time when deep and mysterious forests still covered the whole country, the first of the Malveneurs settled the land. It is said that in a country infested with wolves, this rough and great hunter was tempted by the Devil. One day, he had the idea of seizing some wolf cubs, to raise them and train them for hunting.
And so, he obtained an incomparable pack. But how great was the terror of the peasants when they saw him riding in the snow, followed by the howling pack. Soon he was accused of all evils committed for twenty miles around. It was then that the curse of God descended upon him. Centuries later, we join the last male descendant of the Malveneurs, who seems to be quite fascinated by his own family history. Reginald de Malveneur, a scientist, is determined to harness the secrets of cellular rejuvenation through work in his laboratory.
His harsh rule is abhorred not only by the Czech people, but by his old rival, Admiral Canaris, who is deeply concerned about the unrest and rebelliousness Heydrich's policies create in the occupied Czech lands.

And it is there that the continual erection of wooden crosses to the war's dead hits home with the grisly realization that the men fighting are little more than cannon fodder for the insatiable maws of Death. A Scottish Setter, slated for death by a breeder due to his black ear and improper coloring, is adopted by Ivan Ivanovich, an older man fond of nature. The man names the dog "Bim" and takes him along on hunting trips in the countryside.
But Bim's problems are far from over, when Ivan develops heart problems and eventually has to be taken to the hospital. Separated from the only human who hasn't rejected him and unable to bear waiting for his return, Bim sets out to find Ivan. And with that begins the story of another stray dog and its many adventures and encounters with people, some kind; some cruel. In the end, Bim is unable to find a permanent home. Ivan eventually returns home, but is confronted with the cruelty of a neighbor, which brings Bim's story to a tragic end.

Passing the barbed-wire fence around the school, a Wehrmacht NCO, Walter, meets a young Jewess named Ruth and unwisely falls in love with her. His friend, Lieutenant Kurt, who runs the camp, decides to throw a little party and has the girl brought to the revelry.

The program is in very good shape, though it does have multiple folds. As the Pacific War draws to an end, the commandant of the Blood Island prisoner-of-war camp has let it be known that should Japan surrender, he will order the massacre of the entire captive population. When the prisoners hear through underground sources that Japan has indeed surrendered, they mobilise themselves to try to prevent the news reaching the commandant. Colonel Lambert, the authoritarian leader of the prisoners, deems that they must sabotage communications between the camp and the outside world and arm themselves in however makeshift a way in readiness for a final showdown.
Lambert's unilateral assumption of military authority is not universally welcomed, as other prisoners including Piet van Elst, former governor Cyril Beattie and priest Paul Anjou chafe against his quasi-dictatorial personality, obstinacy and refusal to listen to any views other than his own. Lambert is forced continually to justify his at times apparently illogical and counter-productive decisions. Matters are not helped by the growing suspicion that the camp harbours a collaborator in its midst. Van Elst is given the task of chief saboteur, while Anjou passes messages and instructions to the captives via coded sermons.
When the endgame becomes inevitable, the prisoners rise up against their captors in a bloody insurrection, feeling that they have nothing left to lose and the survival of a few is better than the alternative. When Allied relief planes finally arrive they find a mere handful of survivors on either side. Their situation seems hopeless, but that doesn't stop the High Command from issuing orders for them to hold out.

Just as Colonel Marquis de Sevigne arrives in Constantinople to take up his post as an advisor to the Turkish Armym he is visited by two men of higher standing: Lord Falkland, the English director of an Ottoman government-debt administration, is a bossy and rather arrogant man. The second guest, Prince Cernuwicz, a Pole in the service of the Russian consular offices, is a kind and polite man with flawless manners.
After their visit, de Sevigne makes inquiries into the two and discovers that Lord Falkland has an attractive wife and handsome son he couldn't care less about and treats like serfs. Soon thereafter, he gets to know Lady Falkland and is immediately won over by her charms. He decides to help her, but is informed by the woman, that were she to leave her husband, Lord Falkland would deprive her of her beloved son. But when Lord Falkland believes to have caught his wife in a romantic indiscretion, fate soon starts to take matters in its own hands.
Now de Sevigne can see only one way to help the woman of his heart. Er ist fest entschlossen, ihr zu helfen. Zagreb, In independent Croatia, Jews are being rounded up in the country's capital and being sent to Ustashi concentration camps. To protect the daughter of a family friend who's been deported in a raid along with his wife, the Vojnovic family takes in Ruth and eventually marries her off to their son Ivo to protect her from arrest. Ivo, for his part, is not at all happy with the arrangement, as he already is in love with Magda and the arranged marriage is putting a crimp on his love life.
Not realizing what would be in store for the girl were she to be arrested, Ivo's pretty loose about hiding his marriage of convenience and it's not long before everyone knows to whom he's married. By the time the girl is found by Croatian police in the streets after an air raid and deported to a camp, Ivo has fallen in love with her and only then realizes the danger. Amazingly, he makes it into "The Ninth Circle" of one of these camps, where new arrivals are brutally handled by Ustashi guards.
But will he be too late to prevent her transport to the crematorium? The time and place is Czarist Russia; and in the Savoy Hotel, there's a fight between the married couple Daschenko. The husband feels betrayed by his wife and shoots her during an altercation. By chance, the room-service waiter Andrei is involved in this dramatic situation. He is arrested and accused of murder.
He manages to get away and investigates the events of the murder on his own. Another one of his ideas is to appear on the radio. Somehow, he ends up getting a contract with the radio station and his home town gets its launch into the modern era courtesy of the air waves. The film takes place in Berlin. In this pension live a collection of tragic souls. Only Peter and Hella appear to be happy.
Peter gets offered a better job in Dresden. He hopes to be able to finally marry Hella after establishing himself in this new job.

In severe financial straits -- but apparently not bad enough to know what hunger is -- she takes out a frivolous loan to pay for her equally frivolous purchase. While out paying for the dress, Peter learns about the line of credit and is convinced that Hella has betrayed him. Jealous and distraught, he leaves the pension and abandons Hella. Als sie sich ein Kleid und einen Hut gekauft hat, ist ihr Geld mehr als knapp geworden.
A rich, Polish princess, who has come to Vienna to adopt the illegitimate daughter of her deceased husband, ends up dealing with a lot of turbulent situations when she's mistaken for a sought-after, unemployed dancer. Based on a series of short stories about the Hungarian woodcutter community of Transylvania, the film's simple story concerns Gergo, a logger, who is compelled to leave the mountains and seek work in the valley.
The result is little more than illness and misery. When a foreman in the logging company Gergo works for attempts to rape his wife, she dies trying to flee from him. Gergo takes his revenge by killing the foreman
