     View Summary

    Discussions about Shakespeare productions in Japan have focused predominantly on adaptations, appropriations, translations, and experiments in creating an indigenous or intercultural Shakespeare. Such studies tend to underscore the "Japanese" qualities of the productions. What they have neglected, for the most part, has been an equally important group of productions: appropriations and adaptations whose main aim is not to create a "Japanese" Shakespeare. These productions do not obsess over the cultural divide but invite the audience to explore their identities by engaging more directly with the plays. The Tokyo Shakespeare Company (established in 1990), a theater troupe which has hitherto escaped academic attention, has produced five such appropriations in a series called "Shakespeare through the Looking-glass". The Three Daughters of Lear (1995), the first in this series, depicts the post-mortem struggles of Lear's daughters to understand what has happened to them. It deals with such issues as the absent mother and the daughter's duty. Plays such as this suggest the potential of Japanese productions of Shakespeare evolving into the intercultural Shakespeare that critics such as Rustom Bharucha propose
    they are testimony to how Shakespeare, having become very much a part of Japanese culture, can mirror the audience's reality by way of the issues explored in the play, without references to the indigenous culture. © 2013 © 2013 Tetsuhito Motoyama and Kaoru Edo.

     View Summary

    This project employed the methodologies of historical positivism in order to reexamine comprehensively the many facets of Early Modern English (i.e. Elizabethan and Jacobean) drama, ranging from the plays to the actors, acting troupes, and the theaters. What particularly distinguishes this project is its use of digital archives. By making use of such archives, it was able to reassess established notions and theories through a process of verification; each of the notions and theories were reexamined through close investigation of extant public records and major historical records.By applying this methodology to research into stage theory, playwrights, acting troupes, individual plays, and the publication of these works, this project attempted to create an interconnected network of the many aspects of the theater world of the period, which includes playwrights, major actors, theater owners, printers, and publishers

    本研究の主たる目的は、英国初期近代の演劇作品および当時の役者・劇団・劇場の総合研究を「歴史実証主義的立場」から新たに検証し直すことである。最大の特徴は、デジタル・アーカイヴズ (= digital archives: 電子データ資料 [database]を集積・保管する書庫)を多用し、定説と考えられてきた既存の概念・理論を、現存する公文書や有力な歴史的基礎資料を根幹とした「検証可能な方法」で再検討し直す点にある。それにより当時の劇作家、幹部俳優、劇場所有者、印刷出版業者等をはじめとした「演劇世界全般の相関的ネットワーク構築」の特徴的なありようを、エリザベス朝研究会の総力を結集して追究する。
    平成25年度は、(1) シェイクスピアと同時代のマイナーな劇作家の一人ロバート・ヤリントンの作品『痛ましき二つの悲劇』について、古版本調査や作品成立の背景、不明な作者像の研究を行なった。(2)少年劇団の研究の一環として、ベン・ジョンソン『へぼ詩人』論を論文にまとめ、新たにジョン・リリーの劇作品と少年劇団の関わりについて宗教的観点から考察した。(3)ジョン・リリーのキャリア形成の観点から彼の処女戯曲を分析し、初演環境に作用した政治的磁場の存在と機序を明らかにした。(4)エリザベス朝に、オックスフォード大学やケンブリッジ大学の学生によって執筆/上演された作品が出版された事情について、印刷所と大学関係者を取り巻く状況から探った。(5)英国初期近代演劇のプロット構造についておもに観客の視点から考察し、ロバート・グリーンの『ベイコンとバンゲイ』の複合的なプロット構造について、新しい見地から分析を行った。(6)研究実績の概要:イギリス初期近代劇作品の作者同定研究の歴史を概観し、その現在と今後の可能性について考察した。
