Country house by Stanisław Ignacy Witkiewicz( Book )

30 editions published between 1972 and 2004 in 3 languages and held by 138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Country House", a "comedy with corpses" is a subversion of all those realistic psychological dramas of jealousy, adultery, murder and suicide that ask to be taken seriously. This send-up assumes the form of a ghost story full of surprises, in the course of which an entire family of four is gleefully dispatched to the other world.; When it was first performed in 1923 in Torun, this play was judged unsuitable for the general public because it derided moral, social and dramatic convention. Three years later, as directed by the playwright himself in Lwow, the drama proved an unexpected success with audiences and ever since is Witkacy's most frequently performed work.; It is a systematic demolition of stage realism as well as a probing of the elusive boundaries between life and death, exposing the "dark places" of the human psyche

Wozu bist du aus dem Jenseits hierher gekommen? : sechs Stücke : Polnisch/Deutsch by Stanisław Ignacy Witkiewicz( Book )

6 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in German and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Stanisław Ignacy Witkiewicz, der sich selbst Witkacy nannte, wurde schon von seinen Zeitgenossen zurecht als génie multiple angesehen. Ungeachtet seiner vielfältigen sonstigen Tätigkeitsfelder ist er der Vertreter des Dramas und Theaters der polnischen Avantgarde schlechthin. Es ist das Anliegen der vorliegenden Ausgabe, das dramatische Werk von Stanisław Ignacy Witkiewicz dem deutschen Leserpublikum zugänglich zu machen - eines Werkes, das bis heute immer wieder aufs neue herausfordert. Dabei geht es weniger um eine philologisch genaue Übertragung als vielmehr darum, die auf seiner Philosophie beruhende Komplexität der Denk- und Sichtweise Witkacys in einer bühnentauglichen Form dem heutigen Leser nahezubringen. Der vorliegende Band stellt nach "Man hat uns das Jenseits genommen", "Wir brauchen gar kein Jenseits" und "Ein Hauch von Jenseits" den Abschluss der vollständigen deutsch-polnischen Ausgabe der Stücke Stanisław Ignacy Witkiewiczs dar. Den Übersetzungen ist das Essay "Was für eine Niederträchtigkeit ist doch die Familie - Witkacys Familienbande" vorangestellt

Wir brauchen gar kein Jenseits : sechs Stücke Polnisch/Deutsch by Stanisław Ignacy Witkiewicz( Book )

8 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in German and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Stanisław Ignacy Witkiewicz, der sich selbst Witkacy nannte, wurde schon von seinen Zeitgenossen zurecht als génie multiple angesehen. Ungeachtet seiner vielfältigen sonstigen Tätigkeitsfelder ist er der Vertreter des Dramas und Theaters der polnischen Avantgarde schlechthin. Es ist das Anliegen der vorliegenden Ausgabe einen repräsentativen Teil seines dramatischen Werkes dem heutigen deutschen Leserpublikum zugänglich zu machen und zugleich eine Werkauswahl vorzulegen, die - etwa für Studierende und Wissenschaftler - auch die Originaltexte bereithält. Bei allem Bemühen um philologische Genauigkeit hatte bei der Übertragung die Umsetzung in eine bühnentaugliche Form Vorrang. Den Texten ist eine Einführung in die Eigenheiten von Witkacys Dramatik vorangestellt. Die hier versammelten Dramen aus den Jahren 1920 bis 1924, deren ältere deutsche Versionen seit langem vergriffen sind, erscheinen in diesen aktuellen Übersetzungen zum ersten Mal
