Abstract

This volume includes 24 studies on comparative culture analysis in the Southeastern-European and Mediterrean area, as practizised in the "Ethnologia europaea" of Leopold Kretzenbacher, giving an idea of the plurality of possible topics and issues of folk culture in history and presence of this oldest part of Europe, which has not yet been really explored by interested readers. In t erms of subjects and methods these studies are partly located beyond the traditional thematical set of folklore studies: theoretical and terminological problems are discussed, cultural history since the late antiquity is involved, theological issues come together with research facts on customs and rites, masques and disguisings, issues of gender studies and sociology af ages are brought together with methodological critics on comparativism of the Victorian school of ethnography, the competitions of tournament are analyzed in historical and functional context as symbols of power and superiority of Venice in the Eastern Mediterrean, folk plays are examined as prefigurating structures of elaborated forms of folk theatre as well as the influences of Byzantine ecclesiastic painting and iconography on orthodox folk culture; other chapters focus on ethnosteretyps, on forms and functions of blood brotherhood (adoptio in fratrem) since late antiquity, the ways of reception of popular reading material throughout the Balkan peninsula since the 16th century are presented. Other studies are dedicated to the formation of religious traditions in West and East, between Catholicism and Orthodoxy, to fairy tales between orality and literacy, but also topics like the public display of personal feelings, forms of gestures, figures of demonology, narratives of oral autobiography, etymological and semantic questions are examined and research projects on oral folk literature are presented. One chapter is also dedicated to the ideological use of folklore studies in the nineteenth century. Chapters 15-24 focus more sepcifically on Greece without lacking wider comparative views.The Introduction and the Conclusion, the selected bibliography at the end of the volume and the indices integrate these chapters in a unique perspective. The specific indices allow also a selective use of the volume.

Abstract

The monography includes ten studies, starting from the 3rd century B.C. and finishing in the 20th century. The first chapter, "The mimiambes of Herodas in Late Antiquity: declamation for a solo mime or theatrical performance?" deals with the seven (or eight) texts of the "mimiambes" of Herodas (or Herondas or Herodes) in the third century B. C., short dialogical scenes of urban life in the hellenistic epoque, written for declamation by a single mime performer. The second chapter, "Christus patiens and ancient tragedy. The loss of scenic understanding during the Byzantine middle ages", analyses the extended dialogical cento-text of "Christus patiens" and the numerous problems which are set by this unique compilation of ancient tragic sources and the christian Gospels, giving arguments for the controversal dating of the text (4/5th century or 11/12th), a hypothesis of the authorship and the intended auditorium, and discussing the literary genre as well: Christian tragedy, Passion Play or dialogical cento-poem? The third chapter, "The Cyprus Passion Cycle and its problems", analyses a similar cento-text (written before 1320) and highlights its philological problems (authorship, dating, western or eastern origin, theatricality etc.), open problems which have cumulated a numerous highly controversal bibliography. The text is unique in Byzantine literature because of his prologue, addressing clearly the organisator of an intended scenic production, but from the citations of biblical and apocryphical sources only the first words (incipit) are written down and linked together with "scenic directions" put in the imperative. The fourth chapter, "The Greek chapbook of Bertoldo (1646): the dialogical structure of a popular reading matter", analyses one of the most popular chapbooks of post-byzantine Hellenism; the narrative structure of the comic story is interspersed with many dialogical scenes in direct speech, in such a way that the reader is many times transformed in the spectator of a scene played in front of him. The fifth chapter, "Germanograecia at the beginning of the 19th century: the literary translations of Konstantinos Kokkinakis and Ioannis Papadopoulos", analyses the translations of four theatre plays of August von Kotzebue by Konstantinos Kokkinakis (edited in Vienna 1801) and the two dramatic translations of Ioannis Papadopoulos, the "Quäker" by the same author (Bucharest 1913/14) and "Iphigenie in Tauris" by Johann Wolgang von Goethe (edited in Jena 1818).The following chapters are focussed on the 19th century as well: the sixth, "Femal drama in the time of the Greek Revolution" presents the works of three femal writers with explicit "feministic" consciousness (the prologues are addressed only to the femal readers): Mitio Sakellariou, Elisabeth Moutzan-Martinegou and Evanthia Kaïri. The seventh chapter, "Patriotic drama in the 19th century" gives an overview about the production and development of the genre of dramatic works inspired by episodes and heroes of the Greek Revolution of 1821 during the 19th century. The eighth chapter, "Greek language satires in the epoque of bourgeoisie", analyses satiric texts on the language question and dialectical comedies of the 19th century: 1) the satire of the figure of the "learned" teacher and his archaistic expressions ("ancient Greek"), 2) the satire of the local idioms of Greece on stage, and 3) the satire of the extravagant use of foreign word and phrases by the bourgeoisie (mostly French). The ninth chapter, "The Death of the young man by Kostis Palamas (1891). Studies in the Greek village novel", is dedicated to an exceptional paradigm of the Greek prosa writing with provincial topics ("ethographism"): in an scrupelous analysis of this text mainly the ironic "play" of the author with his intended reader is highlighted. The tenth and last chapter, "Odysseas Elytis and Greek surrealism in the poetry of the 20th century" places the Nobel winner in the literary production of th

Abstract

This comparative investigation is focused on the comparison of contents, themes, topics, motives, but also symbolism, stereotype situations, patterns of behavior etc. of sung and narrated oral text in South-east Europe. Great importance was given to bibliography, usually difficult to compile in a time-consuming process; a separate part at the end of the volume is dedicated to a bibliographie résonée, arranged according to countries and genres; this will facilitate further and more specific research in special fields of interest. This book offers for the first time a comparative survey of nearly all genres of the traditional oral folklore of Southeast Europe, independent from language, ethnic grouping, national boarders, religion and confessions; in this way the high degree of homogenity of the highly developed traditional oral culture in the historical Balkans is documented as well as the high numbers of variants and versions and the superb literary quality of these orally transmitted lingual manifestations, in some cases equal to the written literature of the region.

Abstract

This is a volume of 12 studies on specific topics of theatre and drama history in the Balkans and the Eastern Mediterranean. The scientific interest in the culture of this area during the unification process of Europe is increasing. Five of these studies are of comparative nature, seven focus on Greece and its European connections in the field of theatre and drama. The first part includes the following studies: "Typological structures of development in the theatre history of Southeastern Europe", "Comparative contributions to the traditional puppet theatre in the Balkan pensinsula", "Black-eye Karagöz and the history of shadow theatre in the Balkans under the Turkish rule", "The repraesentatio figurata of the Presentation of the Virgin in the Temple by Philippe des Mézières (Avignon 1372) and its supposed Cypriotic origin", and "Skenderbey in European and Balkan drama".The second part consists of the following studies: "The descensus ad inferos as nuclear scene of an inexistent Orthodox resurrection play", "Structures of reception of Early Modern Greek drama", "Religious baroque theatre during the processions of Corpus Christi on the Cyclades in the 17th century", "Religious festivals of the Baroque era on the islands of the Archipelagus under the Turkish rule (Capucins, Chios 1673)", "Greek editions in Vienna from Gluck to Kotzebue. The theatre life of the Danubian capital in Greek translations 1780-1820", "Literature and theatre in Greece 1728-1888", and "Constantin Christomanos and the theatre of fin de siècle in Austria and Greece".Comparative studies in South Eastern Europe and the Eastern Mediterranean, especially in theatre and drama history, are very rare. Some of these studies are ground-breaking in specific subjects. Exhaustive registers will bring these studies together thematically, studies which in sum, together with the ones of the second volume, will give an idea of a future handbook on Southeatersn Europe theatre and drama from the Midde Ages up to the 20th century.

Abstract

The hitherto unpublished collection of South Slavic folk tales in German translation in the legacy of Friedrich Salomo Krauss (1859-1938), jewish-croatian ethnography, writer and sexologist, in Los Angeles, is on the one hand based on field-work materials, collected from oral sources during a research excursion in 1884-5 in Bosnia, Hercegovina and Dalmatia, on the other on translations of stories published in South Slavic journals of folklore and collections of oral narrations round the turn of the century of 1900. The translations are done in a literary style and the partly extended commentaries by Krauss are an important document of Viennese culture history and mentality in the first decades of the 20th century. Moreover, this collection documents the different ideological presuppositions for the starting phase of the emergence of Austrian Volkskunde/ethnography, which was from the very beginning internationally orientated, in close and specific connection to the folk culture of the countries in South Eastern Europe, and cultivated in a multidisciplinary way cross-contacts to ethnology, anthropology, psychology and jurisprudence.
