The Irish writer Samuel Beckett's and the Iranian writer Gholam Hossein Sa'edi's pantomimes share some common features. The theory of intertextuality proves to be a helpful approach to analyse their shared characteristics. Both pantomime as a literary genre and intertextuality as a literary approach have universal purposes. The former is the study of any relationship between and among different texts from different historical periods, cultures, genres and languages. While in the latter, language loses its significance and mimes and gestures replace its mediatory function. Therefore, the primary purpose of this study is to show how Beckett's pantomimes "Act without Words I and II" resemble Sa'edi's pantomimes "the Black Hoopoe, Hapless and Murk" in terms of themes, structure and symbols. The study shows that both Beckett and Sa'edi chose the medium of pantomime in order to express what were mainly inexpressible in their writing languages. They both used pantomime form as an artistic need in order to escape from the constraint and oppression of the dominant language and their sociopolitical circumstances.

Theatre flourished in the Roman Republic, from the tragedies of Ennius and Pacuvius to the comedies of Plautus and Terence and the mimes of Laberius. Yet apart from the surviving plays of Plautus and Terence the sources are fragmentary and difficult to interpret and contextualise. This book provides a comprehensive history of all aspects of the topic, incorporating recent findings and modern approaches. It discusses the origins of Roman drama and the historical, social and institutional backgrounds of all the dramatic genres to be found during the Republic (tragedy, praetexta, comedy, togata, Atellana, mime and pantomime). Possible general characteristics are identified, and attention is paid to the nature of and developments in the various genres. The clear structure and full bibliography also ensure that the book has value as a source of reference for all upper-level students and scholars of Latin literature and ancient drama.
