"In this play of shattering power, an authoritarian monarch is overthrown by his daughters who, in turn, find the possession of power to be fatally evil. "I have all the power and yet I am a slave."

An important, urgent book of essays from Britain's most challenging dramatist: "" ... a great playwright - many, particularly in continental Europe, would say the greatest living English playwright."" (The Independent). This collection of passionate and polemical essays deals with drama from its origin in the human mind to its use in history and the present. It explains the hidden working of drama behind the state, religion, family, crime and war. It is a revolutionary understanding of the human world with drama at its centre.

The woman : scenes of war and freedom by Edward Bond( Book )

26 editions published between 1978 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 706 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'The Woman', premiered in 1978 at London's National Theatre, is set at the end of the Trojan War, recasting Hecuba (the wife of King Priam of Troy) as the main character, and reshaping the epic narrative into what Bond calls a 'socialist rhapsody'. Bond's play deviates from the orthodox narrative of the siege, emphasising instead its significance as a dissertation on morality and historical truth, and a celebration of individuals who can change society. It begins with Priam's death, showing the savage struggle over a statue of a goddess, a relic which Troy has stolen from Greece. Later, the half-blind Hecuba and half-mad Ismene are living on a remote island, where they meet an escaped miner searching for sanctuary, and the Greeks arrive still searching for their statue. 'The Woman' refuses resolution, offering instead a complex definition of social conflict

Summer, and Fables : with Service, a story by Edward Bond( Book )

14 editions published between 1982 and 1985 in English and held by 396 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Summer is set in Eastern Europe in and around a house overlooking the sea. The play centers on an encounter between two women, whose pasts are terribly bound up with the German wartime occupation of the town and nearby islands. Forty years ago, Xenia's family threw dinner parties for the German officers in that very house; Marthe, the family servant, was taken prisoner along with many of the townspeople and condemned to be shot. Only Xenia's intervention saved Marthe's life. But now, Xenia lives in England and Marthe still lives in the house. Xenia's visit--and the news that Marthe is dying of an incurable disease--provokes a searing reappraisal of the meaning of the past events and of the present
