Heiner Müller After Shakespeare

Heiner Müller After Shakespeare makes available for the first time Macbeth and Anatomy Titus Fall of Rome, the last of the Shakespeare-inspired plays of the renowned German author to be translated into English. His reflections on the importance of his chosen dramatic model are highlighted in the text of his address Shakespeare A Difference, also included in the volume.

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
