This anthology of Muller's works offers a range of his plays, prose and poetry delving into the absurd, the nightmarish and the entertaining. 'The Hamletmachine' is arguably the most standalone text of the collection - it is Muller's shortned version of Shakespeare's classic but fuses contemporary concerns of Communism and daring dramatic techniques to create a synthesis of confusing and intriguing theatrical experience. The introduction provided by Marc von Henning, the translator, is thorough and a great read. Muller's own introductory essay, 'The Less You See The More You Describe', acts as a mainfesto of his own aesthetic beliefs. I would recommend this highly to anyone who has an interest in challenging European theatre - Muller carries on the tradition of Brecht and his work can be seen to compliment other contemporary writers such as Beckett and Pinter and later playwrights such as Sarah Kane.
Amazon's copies are extremely poorly-printed print-on-demand copies, advertised as being exactly the same as the Faber editions. They're not. They don't open flat, the binding is terrible, the print is fuzzy and illegible, and the paper is cheap and feels awful.
Heiner Müller, however, is an extraordinary writer, and it's wonderful to have some important works of his gathered in the same place.
