Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2004 im Fachbereich Anglistik - Literatur, Note: 1,7, Universitat Hamburg (Institut fur Anglistik), Veranstaltung: Ben Jonson: Volpone und der Alchimist, 11 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Die Komodie The Alchemist von Ben Jonson ist eines der herausragenden satirischen Stucke seiner Zeit. Es handelt von drei Betrugern, die behaupten, der Alchemie machtig zu sein, und damit die Leichtglaubigkeit und die Gier ihrer Opfer ausnutzen. Die folgende Arbeit beschaftigt sich mit der Raum- und Zeitstruktur dieses Stuckes. Als Primarliteratur dient die 1985 erschienene Ausgabe von The Alchemist. Als theoretische Grundlage fur diese Untersuchung beziehe ich mich auf Manfred Pfisters Das Drama. Der erste Teil befasst sich mit der zeitgenossischen Buhne, dem realen raumlichen Kontext und dem fiktiven Schauplatz von The Alchemist. Des Weiteren soll die Raumstruktur innerhalb des Stuckes analysiert werden. Dabei werde ich mich an Pfisters Terminologie und Einteilungsmethodik orientieren. Der zweite Teil befasst sich mit den raumlichen Lokalisierungstechniken und der Konkretisierung der Chronologie, sowie der Zeitstruktur innerhalb des Stuckes und der Semantisierung der Zeit. Den Schlussteil bildet die Zusammenfassung der Ergebnisse und deren Auswertung in Hinblick auf die Anwendbarkeit von Pfisters Terminologie. Der folgende Abschnitt befasst sich mit der historischen Buhne zur Zeit Ben Jonsons. The Alchemist wurde 1610 im Blackfriars Playhouse im Londoner Stadtteil Blackfriars von den King's Men uraufgefuhrt. Das Blackfriars Playhouse war eines von drei Theatern in London. Es handelte sich um ein indoor-Theater, dass 600-700 Zuschauer fasste und sich am Playhouse Yard befand: "

The Alchemist is set during a plague epidemic in the Liberty of Blackfriars in 1610 - and was first performed on tour in 1610 by the company whose London home at Blackfriars was temporarily closed due to a plague epidemic. The play is a sublimely accomplished satirical farce about people's diverse dreams of self-refinement: they all want to transform themselves into something nobler, richer, more powerful, more virile, just as base metal was supposed to be transformed into gold in the alchemical process. During their master's absence from the house, the con-artists Face, Subtle and Doll Common dupe a series of 'customers' whose greed leads them to believe in the existence of the fabled Philosopher's Stone. As their equipment boils over and blows up in the offstage kitchen, so their plot heats up and is exploded by the sceptical Surly and the arrival of their master - who quietly pockets their proceeds and marries the rich widow to boot. The lively introduction focuses on the play as a comedy about swindlers and characters on the margins of society. It highlights Jonson's cratft as a dramatist and his masterful use of language, building into the play all actors and directors need to know about its characters and action. With helpful on-page commentary notes, this student edition also discusses the play in its theatrical and historical context and traces its connections to modern theatre, bringing its farcical comedy vividly to life.
