Eugène Ionesco Revisited

Front Cover
Twayne, Simon & Schuster Macmillan, 1996 - Literary Criticism - 177 pages
In the wake of Ionesco's death in 1994, it is now possible to survey his oeuvre in its entirety. Gaensbauer's study examines, decade by decade, not only his dramatic works but also his early publications in Romania, his journals and personal essays, and even his painting. In viewing Ionesco's career as a continuous whole, Gaensbauer discovers that each work is essentially one piece of the long autobiography of a writer deeply engaged with a spiritual quest to understand himself and humanity.
