By Mr. G. Morgan TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 5 Nov. 2015
Format: Paperback
Bond our "greatest and most influential [Amazon renders it 'influently' but I will be charitable] playwright"? Well that's arrant PR cobblers and intemperate. Silly. It was written when Pinter was alive, for starters. Still Bond was a provocative and fascinating writer and presence though, unlike Brenton, Barker and Hare he has gone quiet these many years. Hard to imagine Howard Brenton's infamous 'Romans in Britain' or 'Blasted,' indeed any of Sarah Kane's work, without seeing in one's mind's eye 'Saved' and its famous scene. In my 6th form class it was taken as read that Bond ENDORSED what he 'showed' which just demonstrated how provincial our school was and how narrow our silly Headmistresses's horizon. Bond, a serious even solemn but fascinating man, is at war with modern consumer society even as manifested in the 1960s and 70s. The dialogue is taut and compelling, the action goads and provokes. It has certainly lost some of its shock value but remains a bold and necessary kick in the guts for a theatre he thought self-satisfied and he addresses issues still very much with us: poverty amid plenty, violence and redemption, Crime and Punishment. A necessary fiction, one might say; As a Marxist he thinks our society needs smashing and lays bare what he sees as its violence and immorality, if not as we might expect them. It's a sobering, stimulating parable of a world crueller perhaps than even Bond knew; well perhaps he knew, hence THAT scene. A landmark that facilitated, indeed caused, the abolition of the minatory office of the Lord Chamberlain, whose fell hand inhibited free speech. We have to salute Edward Bond whose fierce independence made it necessary. An essential, fascinating and important play by one more honoured abroad than in his homeland. He is a man and a writer of great integrity.

Kindle version has a few mistakes and formatting errors - for £8 I expected better.

Of course, the play itself is great.

The book turned up in immaculate condition, and the first half of the book itself with interviews with Bond and all the contextual information, it was a great help in understanding what Bond was trying to say with his play. Truly amazing

Very controversial play with shocking and provocative events. The delivery of this item wasn't the quickest I will say.
