9780413773036: Death And The Ploughman (Modern Plays)

Written in the 15th century by the Bohemian humanist and writer Johannes Von Saaz, Death and the Ploughman is a tragic dialogue between Death and a recently widowed farmer. Here, it is dramatized by the acclaimed translator Michael West as an adversarial duel where the farmer's defense of mankind is as strong as Death's ruthless prosecution of his own cause.

"Quite extraordinary ... This translation is an eloquent one, filled with jeweled words and edged debate, a tribute to the original author, and a serious achievement by his successor."-Irish Times

"Immensely personal, manifestly skeptical of received religious wisdom, and utterly fascinating, a Dürer engraving given audible life."-Sunday Independent

Death and the Ploughman was published to tie in with its production at the Gate Theatre, London, in October 2002.
