Tasso / Clavigo


Translated by Robert David MacDonald
PaperBack (18 Mar 2003)
Goethe’s classical verse play Tasso (1790) examines, in his own words, ‘the disproportion of talent to life’ and the predicament of the artist at odds with the world around him. In Clavigo (1774), a play which Goethe claimed only took him a week to write, we find the first of the double-portraits which culminates in two souls wrestling for dominion in the breast of Faust. Both these translations were premiered at the Citizens Theatre, Glasgow.
