...a major production at the Odéon in 1902 , and proving immensely popular in Weimar Germany in Hans Rothe ’s free translation ( 1933 ): it has held the stage in Europe since the Second World War in productions such as that of Gundalf Gründgen (Düsseldorf, 1948 ). The play’s post-war fortunes in the English-speaking theatre have been more mixed. At Regent’s Park in 1949 it was heavily abridged by Robert Atkins to share a bill with The Comedy of Errors , but within ten years came two far more lavish, and highly successful, productions at the Old Vic ,...

...the errors of the past, conveying no nostalgia in his brisk account of four centuries of political engagement between the monastic system and the feudal monarchy. With the help of long footnotes he tells a story largely discreditable to the monasteries with their recurring scandals of gluttony, luxury, and sexual licence. But Grose, who describes himself in his collected essays, The Grumbler ( 1791 ), as ‘an Opposition-man and Grumbletonian’, was no better disposed to the monarchs and their wealthier subjects. His critique of feudalism and monasticism, and his...

...omissions, and other corruptions of the text. Two particular problems arising from the nature of the Arabic script are false transcriptions caused by misreading or misplacing the diacritical points distinguishing different letters ( taṣḥīf ), and by transposing root letters within a word ( taḥrīf or ibdāl ). Although many MSS were checked and edited before being released, the corruption of texts in this way, an inevitable consequence of scribal culture, was a continual source of anxiety and insecurity in a civilization for which the authenticity and...

...define fragment as a part of a sentence punctuated as if it were complete. Usually denoting an error—as opposed to literary license—the term fragment (or frag .) appears frequently in the marginal jottings of high-school and college English teachers. That is to say, some high-school and college students don't know how to write complete sentences. Hence elementary grammars warn against constructions such as the following one, in which a main clause and a subordinate clause are each written as a complete sentence: We usually go to the fair in the...

...pause, speed up, supply tonal inflections, and otherwise move more smoothly through sentences. Punctuation is an aspect of rhetoric: a way of giving emphasis and rhythm and achieving clarity. Meanwhile, punctuation problems are often a prime indicator of poor writing: “Most errors of punctuation arise from ill-designed, badly shaped sentences, and from the attempt to make them work by means of violent tricks with commas and colons.” Hugh Sykes Davies , Grammar Without Tears 167 ( 1951 ). The basic marks—and their uses—are well known. Yet each one...
