Word and image : Doré/Poe : an enquiry into the role of word and image in the late Romantic period, with specific interest in the participation of Gustave Doré, Edgar Allan Poe and the influence of the gothic revival

Stanley, Keith R January 1991 (has links)
Bibliography: pages 202-211. / This study is an investigation into the relationship between word and image, with specific interest into the work of Edgar Allan Poe and Gustave Doré. The twenty six illustrations that Doré executed for Poe's The Raven form the basis of the study. The intention is, through analysis of the illustration, to identify the interplay between word and image and also investigate the influence of late Romantic Gothicism. Part One examines the position and roles of verbal/visual enquiry through illustration and text. A survey of theoretical concepts defining illustration is made. A brief examination of nineteenth century perspectives of illustration, including a survey of technical theories follows. The modern theory of semiotics and its bearing on visual investigation is examined. A model for applying these theories is detailed. Part Two is an in-depth examination of all twenty six of Doré's illustrations of The Raven. An introduction to the illustrations precedes the analysis. Each illustration is detailed individually, with information on the engraver, content and poetical position being given at the start. Numbered inserts are employed to relay detailed information on more general topics relates to the poem and illustrations. Part Three is the conclusion to the work. A brief examination of Doré's involvement with the Gothic is made. Notes on Doré's illustrations for The Raven and their reception and a survey of other illustrators of The Raven, particularly Eduard Manet follows. The comparison between Manet's and Doré's illustrations is investigated. The concluding remarks note how the relationship of word and image between Doré and Poe uncovers new information about both the poem and the illustrations. The importance of Romanticism and the Gothic is also noted. The conclusion states how new light on Doré's work makes these twenty six rarely considered illustrations more noteworthy. The study ends with a series of appendices, the text of The Raven by Poe, the twenty six illustrations by Doré and a bibliography.

Southern quest: a play and said and done: verbal and non-verbal information in contemporary theatrical writing.

Lozano, Carlos Enrique, School of English, UNSW January 2007 (has links)
My critical essay maps out the relationship between verbal and non-verbal information in contemporary theatrical writing. It uses Lehmann's theory of a post-dramatic theatre and Pfister's analytical input to investigate different configurations of the information given by the characters' speech and the information given by their physical actions. The ways in which these variables interrelate define the type of affiliation between theatre and drama in any given text. My essay contends that the verbal and the non-verbal represent the two ends of the spectrum of possibilities of any written theatre text. The predominance of one over the other will determine the extent to which the 'presence' of the dramatist intervenes in the staging of the work. Using Old Times as a case study, I examine the way in which Pinter stretches the gap between the verbal and the non-verbal; by using his knowledge of the stage, he confronts the remoteness of the literary in theatrical writing. My play Southern Quest recognizes the minds of the readers and of the spectators as the place where the closure of the gap occurs. Its stage directions make of the stage, the properties and actions a creation that is parallel to the fictional one (only present in the dialogue of the characters). There is a permanent discrepancy, not a contradiction, between what is said and what and where it is done that demands that the actual assembly of the possible fiction takes place in the receiver's mind. The creative component draws on numerous elements analysed in the critical work, such as the discordance between the verbal and the non-verbal and the use of narrative monologues in theatrical writing. The lack of agreement between the verbal and the non-verbal-a heightened discordance at the beginning and the end of the play, with a minimal discrepancy towards the centre-mirrors the characters' journey throughout the play: from existential doubt to physical agony and back. The theoretical concerns addressed in the essay are explored in the writing of the play and my main formal drive in the creative piece is to explore the division between theatre and drama from within the text.

Jeans Advertisements and Gender Representations

Chen, Chiu-chin 11 February 2009 (has links)
People nowadays are surrounded by the environment filled with lots of different kinds of media. The impressions of the media help us to form our views of the world and the values of the things. The stories of media offer signs, myth and sources through the lives we share together. The messages of media tell us who has the power, and who can have the abilities of interpretation. The study focuses on the gender representations and the underlying gender messages of jeans advertisements in the magazines, and how they interact with the culture. Besides the newly fashion magazines, the four top selling magazines, VOGUE, Cool, Men¡¦s Uno and GQ, are more than 10 years. From the ads in those magazines in 1998 and in 2007, the study uses the semiotics to analyze the signifier and signified, connotation and denotation of the jeans advertisements. The study hopes to find out the differences of the gender codes in the magazines and the interactions between the advertisements and the culture in Taiwan.
