The Greenes were representative of a class of journeymen actors, who received but little attention by chroniclers of early nineteenth-century theatre history. Along with hundreds of other craftsmen of their day, they experienced frequent moments of tribulation and rare occasions of triumph-respected artists who bore their daily vicissitudes as an expected part of the theatrical life. They traveled from place to place applying their craft, appearing with many of the major performers of the era. Mrs. Greene's personal memoirs were originally serialized in The New York Clipper in the 1860s by Charles Durang, who supplied additional material from his experiences as an actor, promoter, and dancing master. The original publication has now been greatly expanded by William L. Slout. Contains a helpful Chronology, comprehensive Notes, and a detailed Bibliography, and Index.

Breaking every prescription of ideal femininity, American actresses of the mid-nineteenth century appeared in public alongside men, financially supported nuclear and extended families, challenged domestic common law, and traveled the globe in the transnational theater market. While these women expanded professional, artistic, and geographic frontiers, they expanded domestic frontiers as well: publicly, actresses used the traditional rhetoric of domesticity to mask their very nontraditional personal lives, instigating historically significant domestic innovations to circumvent the gender constraints of the mid-nineteenth century, reinventing themselves and their families in the process. Nan Mullenneaux focuses on the personal and professional lives of more than sixty women who, despite their diverse backgrounds, each made complex conscious and unconscious compromises to create profit and power. Mullenneaux identifies patterns of macro and micro negotiation and reinvention and maps them onto the waves of legal, economic, and social change to identify broader historical links that complicate notions of the influence of gendered power and the definition of feminism; the role of the body/embodiment in race, class, and gender issues; the relevance of family history to the achievements of influential Americans; and national versus inter- and transnational cultural trends. While Staging Family expands our understanding of how nineteenth-century actresses both negotiated power and then hid that power, it also informs contemporary questions of how women juggle professional and personal responsibilities—achieving success in spite of gender constraints and societal expectations.

Professor Ripley, in this 1980 study of Julius Caesar, offers one of the most detailed stage histories ever attempted, focusing upon aspects both of English and American staging from 1599 to 1973. His primary sources include promptbooks and groundplans, letters, diaries and reviews. He approaches the play from four different angles: he examines the texts used in all major productions, and makes valuable deductions about the taste and sensibility of an age from cuts, alterations, additions and redistribution of parts. He explains in detail the staging of the play at various points in time, and demonstrates how sets and costumes, bits of business, handling of crowd scenes and lighting affected its business. He reconstructs performances of the four main roles by the greater and lesser lights of each period. Finally, he comments on the way in which the theories of critics and, in modern times, directors' ideas have influenced understanding of the play.

THE CLASSIC NOVEL BASED ON THE LIFE OF LEGENDARY STOCK MARKET SPECULATOR JESSE LIVERMORE Reminiscences of a Stock Operator is the first-person narrative of a fictional speculator named Larry Livingston, whose life events happen to match precisely those of Jesse Livermore, one of Wall Street’s greatest ever stock speculators. This fictionalized story written in the first-person narrative follows his journey from the age of 15 when he made his first $1,000 to becoming a Wall Street legend. You’ll see how he learned the ins and outs of trading the hard way while losing his fortune and then making it all back. Decades after its original publication, readers are still getting tremendous value from Livermore’s experience. There has even been speculation that the book’s author was not Lefèvre, but none other than Jesse Livermore, himself.

Metaphors and Climax explores the artistic forays of the late Ogonna Agu (Ph.D.), Nigerian writer, critic, actor, director, painter and Associate Professor of drama and theatre. In 19 exciting essays, this book captures the creative canvas of Agu as expressed in the genres of literary drama, performance and theatre criticism. Besides establishing the versatility of Agu as a virtuoso artist, the volume significantly interrogates the thematic preoccupations of his plays, their sociological values and the potentials and challenges of putting them on stage as performance texts. Issues such as the creative philosophy of Agu, the dramatic reflections of the Nigerian Civil War, the ideology of Biafra, the political economy of postcolonial Africa, love, gender and culture, and the ethical demands of peace and reconciliation demonstrate the broad canvas on which Agu's creative works are painted. The compendium is a good reference material for scholars, practitioners and students of African theatre, politics and culture.

A criminal lawyer and popular journalist, Henry C. Castellanos lived nearly three-quarters of the nineteenth century in New Orleans. In his later years, between 1892 and 1895, he wrote more than 120 articles for the Times-Democrat on the history and mores of his beloved city, and in 1895 he published a selection of those episodes in New Orleans as It Was. This facsimile reproduction of the volume includes a new introduction by historian Judith Kelleher Schafer, which pieces together the little-known life of Castellanos and provides insights about a period when New Orleans was the queen city of the South.Castellanos's collection of vignettes, incidents, anecdotes, personalities, and descriptions focuses on the years 1820 to 1860 and reflects the interests of a city newspaperman. The reader encounters duels, voodoos, executions, and piracy, and meets mayors, generals, slaves, masters, princes, paupers, judges, prisoners, and jailers. Castellanos describes in detail buildings, public parks, suburbs, notable houses, churches, and neighboring plantations as well as the characteristics, customs, dress, food, and amusements of New Orleanians. In capturing what he called New Orleans's "unwritten history," Castellanos brings alive for readers today America's most interesting city at a younger age.
