With Hitler defeated, "writers were aware that terrible events could emerge from what might seem at first innocent activity"; add to that the then-recent discoveries of surrealism and psychoanalysis, and "the most potent influence of all - of Franz Kafka" and a re-telling of the old story becomes an important message, that which is most important - not from whence we came but what one is. Originally published in German in the same year, this book is the first English language edition of Swiss playwright Friedrich Durrematt's cynical, comical and labyrinthine retelling of the Oedipus myth.It is accompanied by two splendid gravures by world renowned photographer Marie Cosindas which have been printed from the original negatives.
