Koltes Plays by Bernard-Marie Koltes

Book Description

Bernard-Marie Koltes is "a classic of our time, who, since 1990 is the French author most performed abroad" (Le Monde) "In Black Battles with Dogs the battles take place not only between individuals but also between societies, cultures, ideologies. Return to the Desert enacts a conflict that is to do with ownership: Adrien and Mathilde (brother and sister) fight about who can lay claim to the family property, the last play Roberto Zucco pits the outlaw Roberto Zucco against the whole of law-abiding society" (David Bradby, Royal Holloway, London University)Koltes's plays present a vision of the harsh realities of late twentieth-century life, influenced by Genet and Fugard, combined with a formal approach to dramatic dialogue in the French classical tradition.

Koltes Plays by Bernard-Marie Koltes Koltes Plays, Paperback (March 2004)

The second collection of plays by this French contemporary playwright. The first an extraordinary duologue between two men who randomly meet on the street. The second two plays are set in America and provide insight into America's relationships with outsiders. Lastly a soul searching monologue addressed to an unseen audience.

In the Solitude of the Cotton Fields by Bernard-Marie Koltes In the Solitude of the Cotton Fields, Paperback (September 2001)

Two men pass on the street. "Tell me what you want and I'll get you it" asks one. "Tell me what you've got and I'll tell you what I want" replies the other. What follows is a cat-and-mouse game of desire and rejection, power and humiliation as the two men negotiate a deal that will never be struck.

Roberto Zucco by Bernard-Marie Koltes Roberto Zucco, Paperback (November 1997)

The last play by legendary French writer Bernard-Marie Koltes was "a pioneer of a wholly new style of dramatic writing" (The Times)
