The rise of the ecologically-oriented approaches to literature and the development of ecocriticism as a scholarly discipline in the 1970s did not remain very long the prerogative of the Anglo-American literature and scholarship. Other national literatures and literary studies have been rapidly developing their views on the connections between literature and ecology; these are oftem based on different premises and follow their own respective literary traditions.
Following various requests, the new deadline is March 8, 2012

The Muppets' clanging theme song, fumbling characters, and vaudeville format might make some viewers think they are watching Bertolt Brecht's Threepenny Opera. The characters are alienated from their roles and present an unfinished front to the audience. The show takes place in a comfortable theater like the Berliner Ensemble, and the use of "real" "fake" characters disrupts the illusion that would generate identification in the same way that Brecht's makeup should create a distance between the characters and the viewer.
The official reaction of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to The Book of Mormon, the musical from Matt Stone and Trey Parker of South Park and Robert Lopez of Avenue Q, consists of a single sentence: "The production may attempt to entertain audiences for an evening, but the The Book of Mormon as a volume of scripture will change people's lives forever by bringing them closer to Christ."
But the musical has done much more than merely attempt to entertain people for an evening: it regularly brings audiences to their feet in a wild ovation at its end, and it earned a whopping 14 Tony nominations, winning in nine of the categories it was nominated in, including "Best Musical."

25th Anniversary of Dennis Potter's The Singing Detective
The twenty-fifth anniversary of the original broadcast of the BBC six-part series The Singing Detective, written by Dennis Potter and directed by Jon Amiel, occurs Nov-Dec 2011. As a result of its narrative complexity, generic hybridity and formal experimentation, this series is commonly regarded as a piece of landmark television which inspired and influenced a range of subsequent television drama in the UK and elsewhere.
