Viel Lärm um nichts (illustriert)

Publisher: Clap Publishing, LLC.

ISBN: 1635371465

Viel Lärm um nichts ist eine Komödie um Liebe und Intrigen von William Shakespeare; sie unterscheidet sich von Shakespeares anderen romanesken Komödien durch den realeren Bezug zur Liebe. Claudio interessiert sich vor allem für Heros Erbschaft, Benedikt und Beatrice erliegen nicht der konventionellen Augenliebe, sondern finden sich erst nach Einmischungen der anderen Figuren. Besonders hervorstechend ist das Spiel mit dem Sein und dem Schein, worauf schon das Wortspiel im Titel hinweist – nothing und noting („nichts“ und „wahrnehmen, erkennen“). Damit sind einerseits die Intrigen gegen Hero, andererseits die Sitten der höfischen Selbstinszenierung, insbesondere bei Benedikt und Beatrice, gemeint. Geschrieben wurde das Stück 1598/99 und erstmals in der Quartoausgabe von 1600 gedruckt.

Der Gott des Gemetzels


Author: Yasmina Reza

ISBN: 3446259740

Page: 80

Yasmina Rezas Stücke sind grandioses Theater, aber auch ein großes Lesevergnügen. Der Gott des Gemetzels, 2006 im Schauspielhaus Zürich uraufgeführt, spielt auf der Grenze zwischen Gesellschaftssatire und menschlichem Desaster. Zwei Elfjährige haben sich geprügelt, dabei schlug der eine dem anderen zwei Zähne aus. Die beiden Elternpaare treffen sich zum klärenden Gespräch. Hinter der Fassade bürgerlicher Wohlanständigkeit tun sich Abgründe auf – schockierend und komisch zugleich. Der Gott des Gemetzels wurde zu Yasmina Rezas bekanntestem Stück, nicht zuletzt durch Roman Polanskis Verfilmung 2011 mit Kate Winslet und Christoph Waltz.
