Heiner Müller After Shakespeare
Müller (1929-1995), whose Hamletmachine is a contemporary classic, is regarded as one of the most profound visionaries of twentieth-century drama and at the time of his death was one of Europe’s leading intellectual figures. His Shakespeare plays are startling in their imagery and poetry and uncompromising depiction of the violence of power and politics. Truly, they are plays for our age.
“Heiner Müller was one of the greatest writers of the twentieth century and will undoubtedly be among the most indispensable of the twenty-first, the terrors of which his plays seem to have anticipated and anatomized.” Tony Kushner
“Heiner Müller’s plays, astonishing in their punch and poetry, are imbued with muscularity, richness and theatricality." Anne Bogart
