Theatre of Catastrophe: New Essays on Howard Barker (Hardback)

David Ian Rabey (ed.), Karoline Gritzner (ed.)

HardBack (08 Sep 2006)

This collection of essays is the first to consider the full range of Barker's theatrical objectives and achievements, and reflects his international status as an artistic thinker and practitioner. Contributors from around the world consider key events and themes in Barker's plays such as death, sexuality, performance, blindness, politics, eroticism and cruelty. Overviews of Barker's career explore his rejection of standard dramatic and theatrical techniques and his pursuit of a new tragic form.
