Description

Despite being widely acknowledged as one of the most important German dramatists since Bertolt Brecht, Heiner M^1/4ller (192995) still remains relatively unknown in the English-speaking world. This collection of plays aims to change that, presenting new translations and opening up his work to a larger audience. Collected here are three of his playsPhiloctetes, The Horatian, and Mauserwhose poetic texts evidence the influence of Shakespeare, classical Greek tragedy, and avant-garde political theater on his works. Together they constitute what M^1/4ller called an experimental series, which both develops and critiques Brechts theory of the Lehrst^1/4ck, or learning play. Based on a tragedy by Sophocles, Philoctetes dramatizes the confrontation between politics, morality, and the desire for revenge. The Horatian uses an incident from ancient Rome as an example of ways of approaching the moral ambiguity of the past. Finally, Mauser, set during the Russian civil war, examines the nature and ethics of revolutionary violence. The plays are accompanied by supporting materials written by M^1/4ller himself, as well as an introduction by Uwe Sch^1/4tte that contextualizes the plays and speaks of their continued relevance today.
