Silenced Voices: Hungarian Plays from Transylvania
Csilla Bertha, Donald E. Morse
Carysfort Press, 2008 - Drama - 282 pages
This book is a timely reminder of how theatre does not just entertain, but enlightens and transforms us too. The five plays it collects are wonderfully theatrical, moving fluidly from absurdism to tragedy, and from satire to the darkly comic. The translators give us versions that will stimulate and delight readers, performers and audiences. By giving voice to the 'forgotten playwrights of Central Europe', they also deeply enrich our understanding of the relationship between art, ethics and politics in Europe - both in the past and the present.
