Tales from the Vienna Woods describes the decay of a society haunted by inflation and lurching towards Fascism. Italian Night lays bare the blindness of even well-intentioned men and the dangerous inadequacy of their fascist tormentors. Sladek and Right Around the Congress are set in a period of roaring inflation in Germany after the First World War.

About the Author:

"Odon von Horvath (1901-38) was an influential Austro-Hungarian dramatist and novelist. His first plays depicted the coruption of contemporary society; Sladek The Black Militia Man caused a riot at its premiere in 1929. He was already an exile from Hitler's Germany when the two plays in this volume were written. His experience as an outside observer is reflected in their themes of displacement and exile. "

In Sladek, Black's version being the first to be published in English, we see how social conditions lead people to desperate action and violence, opening the road for dictators and fascists. Written just as the Nazis came to power, A Sexual Congress predicts with frightening accuracy the cycle of violence that was to spread throughout Europe. Seller Inventory # AAJ9781840021332
