Thomas Kyd

Thomas Kyd was an English playwright, the author of The Spanish Tragedy, one of the most important figures in the development of Elizabethan drama. Although well known in his own time, Kyd fell into obscurity until 1773 when Thomas Hawkins, an early editor of The Spanish Tragedy, discovered that Kyd was named as its author by Thomas Heywood in his Apologie for Actors. A hundred years scholars in Germany and England began to shed light on his life and work, including the controversial finding that he may have been the author of a Hamlet play pre-dating Shakespeare's, now known as the Ur-Hamlet. Thomas Kyd was the son of Anna Kyd. There are no records of the day he was born, but he was baptised in the church of St Mary Woolnoth in the Ward of Langborn, Lombard Street, London on 6 November 1558; the baptismal register at St Mary Woolnoth carries this entry: "Thomas, son of Francis Kydd and Writer of the Courte Letter of London". Francis Kydd in 1580 was warden of the Scriveners' Company. In October 1565 the young Kyd was enrolled in the newly founded Merchant Taylors' School, whose headmaster was Richard Mulcaster.

Fellow students included Thomas Lodge. Here, Kyd received a well-rounded education, thanks to Mulcaster's progressive ideas. Apart from Latin and Greek, the curriculum included music, physical education, "good manners". There is no evidence, he may have followed in his father's professional footsteps because there are two letters written by him and his writing style is similar to that of a scrivener. Evidence suggests that in the 1580s Kyd became an important playwright, but little is known about his activity. Francis Meres placed him among "our best for tragedy" and Heywood elsewhere called him "Famous Kyd". Ben Jonson mentions him in the same breath as Christopher Marlowe and John Lyly in the Shakespeare First Folio; the Spanish Tragedie was written in the mid to late 1580s. The earliest surviving edition was printed in 1592. However, the play was known as "Hieronimo", after the protagonist, it was arguably the most popular play of the "Age of Shakespeare" and set new standards in effective plot construction and character development.

In 1602 a version of the play with "additions" was published. Philip Henslowe's diary records payment to Ben Jonson for additions that year, but it is disputed whether the published additions reflect Jonson's work or if they were composed for a 1597 revival of The Spanish Tragedy mentioned by Henslowe. Other works by Kyd are his translations of Torquato Tasso's Padre di Famiglia, published as The Householder's Philosophy. Plays attributed in whole or in part to Kyd include Soliman and Perseda, King Leir, Arden of Faversham and Edward III. A play related to The Spanish Tragedy called The First Part of Hieronimo may be a bad quarto or memorial reconstruction of a play by Kyd, or it may be an inferior writer's burlesque of The Spanish Tragedy inspired by that play's popularity. Kyd is more accepted to have been the author of a Hamlet, the precursor of the Shakespearean play; the success of Kyd's plays extended to Europe. Versions of The Spanish Tragedy and his Hamlet were popular in Germany and the Netherlands for generations.

The influence of these plays on European drama was the reason for the interest in Kyd among German scholars in the nineteenth century. From 1587 to 1593 Kyd was in the service of an unidentified noble, after his imprisonment in 1593, he wrote of having lost "the favours of my Lord, whom I haue servd theis vi yeres nowe". Proposed nobles include the Earl of Sussex, the Earl of Pembroke, Lord Strange, he may have worked as a secretary, if he did not write plays. Around 1591 Christopher Marlowe joined this patron's service, for a while Marlowe and Kyd shared lodgings, even ideas. On 11 May 1593 the Privy Council ordered the arrest of the authors of "divers lewd and mutinous libels", posted around London; the next day, Kyd was among those arrested. His lodgings were searched and instead of evidence of the "libels" there was found an Arianist tract, described by an investigator as "vile heretical conceits denying the eternal deity of Jesus Christ found amongst the papers of Thos. Kydd, prisoner... which he affirmeth he had from C.

Marley". It is believed. Kyd told authorities the writings found in his possession belonged to Christopher Marlowe, a fellow dramatist and former roommate. Kyd “accused his former roommate of being a blasphemous traitor, an atheist who believed that Jesus Christ was a homosexual” an uninformed confusion over the Arian and Early Gnostic concept of homoousios. Kyd was with Marlowe at the wrong place at the wrong time. Marlowe was summoned by the Privy Council after these events, while waiting for a decision on his case, was killed in an incident in Deptford involving known government agents. Kyd was released but was not accepted back into his lord's service. Believing he was under suspicion of atheism himself, he wrote to the Lord Keeper, Sir John Puckering, protesting his innocence, but his efforts to clear his name were fruitless; the last we hear from the playwright is the publication of Cornelia early in 15

2005–06 Serie A

The 2005–06 Serie A was the 104th season of top-tier Italian football, the 74th in a round-robin tournament. The league commenced on 28 August 2005 and finished on 14 May 2006. While Juventus were the first-placed team, this title was put sub judice due to their involvement in the Calciopoli scandal, with Internazionale instead declared champions by the Italian Football Federation on 26 July 2006. Prior to the 2005–06 season, if two or more teams were tied in points for first place, for only one spot in a European tournament, or in the relegation zone, teams would play tie-breaking matches after the season was over to determine which team would be champion, or be awarded a European tournament spot, or be saved or relegated. However, 2005–06 saw the introduction of new rules. If two or more teams ended the season with the same number of points, the ordering was determined by their head-to-head records. If two or more teams had the same total points and head-to-head records, goal difference became the decisive factor.

Promoted from Serie B. The Capocannoniere of 2005–06 was Luca Toni of Fiorentina, his 31 goals was the highest tally since Antonio Valentín Angelillo scored 33 for Internazionale in 1958–59.

Brian Donlevy as Steve Reardon Glenda Farrell as Edith McNeil Norman Foster as Eddie Mitchell Helen Wood as Brenda Burke Robert McWade as Willard Stone Theodore von Eltz as Noble Harrison Hattie McDaniel as Hattie Romaine Callender as F. Willoughby Tuttle Joe Sawyer as Terry Madden George Chandler as Man at Honolulu Dock The original title for the story by J. Robert Bren and Norman Houston was "Here Comes Trouble", but 20th Century Fox used that title for another film which they released earlier in the same year.

The working title of the movie was "Trouble Makers". The film includes the song "And That Woman Made a Monkey Out of Me" by Sidney Clare; the New York Times movie review said: "High Tension is a loud and funny comedy written entirely in the vernacular, well suited to Miss Glenda Farrell's aptitude for robust comedy. Here she is aided and abetted by Brian Donlevy, the man with the profile, who spends part of his time asking her to marry him and, running out on her after she consents. For good measure, the scenario writers toss in some melodramatic episodes. For instance, the interlude in which Mr. Donlevy descends to the floor of the Pacific to rescue Norman Foster, who becomes entangled in a movement of coral reef while mending the Honolulu—San Francisco cable. High Tension may be recommended to the not too finicky as better than average hot-weather screen fare." 20th Century Fox released the film on DVD on December 16, 2014. High Tension on IMDb
