Right:- so I guess the theme of the assignment is "Adaptations", yeah?

Now the next bit has me a little unsure: does he want you to:-

a) PROVE that adaptations provide evidence of changeability over time and genre?
b) ILLUSTRATE the ways in which adaptations provide evidence of changeability over time and genre?
c) discuss WHETHER adaptations provide evidence of.....etc. etc.

In any case, he wants you to do one or all of the above first with reference to Shakespeare's and Davenant's plays.

Next he want you to provide some other examples to back up whichever of a), b) or c) he means. This he wants you to do using some other examples of adaptations from one country/culture to another. (like Italian Commedia, perhaps?).

So it seems that, in order to complete this assignment you MUST get hold of the Davenant text. It must be available on-line by now or, if you are near a library, they should have a copy.

Does any of this help?

Firstly, I think there's a typo. Should it be notion, not nation?

William Davenant in TFD.

Are you supposed to compare how the themes in one, or some, of these plays are adapted and handled in different times and by different authors?


thank you so much

but he means nations

yes exactly as I understand he wants me to compare the themes....but i can not find William's Macbeth

thank you

Wow girl! You have certainly been presented with some rather advanced academic language, haven't you? Is it this that is confusing you?

not at all
Or is it the fact that if what you have provided is verbatim: - is reproduced exactly as it was given to you - then I understand your confusion: what he wants is not clear at all the way it is written.
yes exactly
So if you would tell us which is your problem I'm sure some of us will help if we can.


i mean what he wants is not clear for me

is he talking about showing the differences between the works?

but i don't know and find William Davinan's Macbeth

that's it

hi everybody and I hope you are fine


in a few days I have presentation about this matter:


Adaptation. A proof of changeability across time and genres. William Shakespeare’s source(s) of Macbeth and William Davenant’s adaptation of the same play into an operatic “tragedie a machines”. Further examples of adaptations within the same nation and across nations (Dr. Faustus, Antony and Cleopatra, The tempest, King Lear, Othello, Hamlet etc…)

so, could you please help your new friend by giving her any information about this matter and sure I'll do it but I need to be a unique student

or what does he want me to discuss exactly??

thank you in advanced Drool
