Product Description


""The New Trial "depicts the loss of art's value with sardonic humor. . . . The volume includes an informative introduction by James Rolleston and Kai Evers, who have come up with a smooth translation of the play. An interview with Weiss and his wife, Gunilla Palmstierna-Weiss, is helpful, as is an intriguing essay by the director of the script's American premiere at Duke University in 1998. . . . Thankfully, "The New Trial" proffers a clear and compelling statement of Weiss's last thoughts on the powerless power of art in an age of global conglomerates." --Bill Marx, "WBUR Theater Reviews"

Peter Weiss (1916-1982) was a German playwriter, dramatist, visual artist, filmmaker, and novelist. His works include "Marat/Sade, The Shadow of the Coachman's Body, The Aesthetics of Resistance, The Conversation of the Three Walkers, Trotsky in Exile, " and "Bodies and Shadows: Two Short Novels." His documentary drama "The Investigation, " which recreates the trial of Auschwitz concentration camp guards, was produced on American television in the 1960s. West Germany's most important literary prize, the Georg Buchner Prize, was awarded to Weiss only after his death in 1982. James Rolleston is Professor of Germanic Languages and Literatures at Duke University. His previous books include "Narratives of Ecstacy: Romantic Temporality in Modern German Poetry" and "Kafka's Narrative Theater. "Kai Evers is an advanced graduate student in the German Department at Duke University who presently lives in Woodland Hills, California.
