An Anthology of contemporary Belgian plays, 1970-1982: Hugo Claus, René Kalisky, Jean Louvet, Jean Sigrid, Lucienne Stassaert, Ivo Van Hove
"The Whitston Press should be congratulated for bringing out a second anthology of contemporary Belgian plays. . . . A preface by David Willinger introduces each of the six dramatists included, giving pertinent information concerning their ideas, styles, and theatrical innovations. Explanatory essays on Belgian theatre in general, and on Flemish and French-language drama in particular, by Jacques DeDecker, Jaak Van Schoor, and Mark Quaghebeur respectively, add important historical background material. The translations by Luc Deneulin, Karl SeSloovere, and Luk Truyts with David Willinger are uniformly excellent. Highly recommended."World Literature Today
