Human cannon by Edward Bond( Book )

7 editions published between 1985 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 352 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'Human Cannon' is a narrative of class struggle, set in a small village consumed by the fight against fascism in Spain, a play which swells from resentment against the privileged landowners to blazing revolution. At the centre are Agustina and her family, who are seen in the first scene preparing to bury her nameless child, while her husband explains the violent origins of capitalism. When the war takes over the village and the play, Agustina begins by learning to fire her enemies' cannon, and ends by herself becoming - through the strength of human will - the most effective weapon in the armoury of revolution. 'Human Cannon' is a tremendous manifesto of resistance and an unflinching interpretation of the Spanish Civil War
