Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Overflowing with hyper-vivid characters and precipitous actions, these dramas constitute Witkiewicz's "portrait of the artist," offering a panorama of a demented era headed for disaster as well as a cracked mirror reflecting the author's own protean faces. Lucille Lortel Distinguished Professor of Theatre and Comparative Literature at the Graduate Center, City University of New York; Executive Director, Martin E. Segal Theatre Center; editor, Slavic and East European Performance; editor, Routledge Harwood Polish and East European Theatre Archive; author of Witkacy, Guillotine: Its Legend and Lore, Theatre/Theory/Theatre, and translations of Polish and Russian drama.

Format: Paperback
I recently saw a production of DAINTY SHAPES AND HAIRY APES in Dallas ( by a group called Our Endeavors). It was great, bizarre, hilarious stuff. A friend gave me this book and I revisited the play again. Witkiewicz is an odd, odd duck (a fore-runner of the Theatre of the Absurd, well before Beckett and Ionesco) and his writing is fascinating. I have just started THE PRAGMATISTS, which is also offering a great read. I'd love to see it on stage.
