Book description

This is the first anthology of its kind, the only collection that shows the remarkable range and depth of what has happened in the German Theatre since 1945.The new German drama is characterized by social and moral criticism, by vituperation, by scathing comedy and an overwhelming sense of guilt; in its more recent manifestations it is characterized as well by a withdrawal from reality through an emphasis on technical experimentation.Although many of the playwrights included in this book will be familiar to serious readers, none of the eleven excellent plays is much known here in America.Postwar German Theatre provides fresh and fascinating material that reveals the excitement of the life of the mind and the state in Germany today.George Kaiser - The Raft of the Medusa; Wolfgang Borchert - The Outsider; Erwin Sylvanus - Dr. Korczak and the Children; friedrich Durrenmatt - Incident at Twilight; Max Frisch - The Great Fury of Philip Hotz; tankred Dorst - Freedom for Clemens;Carl Laszo - The Chinese Icebox;Gunter Grass - Rocking Back and Forth; wolfgang Hildesheimer - Nightpiece; Peter Weiss - The tower.
