Peter Weiss' "Gespräch der drei Gehenden" beginnt rasant. Entschlossen und miraculös. Fesselnd. Drei gehen, aber vielleicht gehen sie gar nicht. Drei reden, aber vielleicht schweigen sie auch. Oder träumen. Oder nur einer redet. Mit sich und niemandem. Abel, Babel und Cabel nennen sie sich. Geht hier die Unschuld? Geht hier die Verwirrung? Folgt beiden, den biblischen Opfer- und Strafsymbolen, Cabel - der Teufel der Juden? Oder befindet sich alles im grotesk-surrealen Chaos? Peter Weiss betreibt einen tiefen, gewaltigen Text. Literatur auf der Ebene des Traumhaften. "Das Gespräch der drei Gehenden" reiht Episoden aneinander, die aus einer resignativ-distanzierten Stimmung heraus eskalieren, ohne den Urgrund ihrer Explosionen gleich zu offenbaren. Eine Braut übergibt sich auf einer Brücke, ihr Pferd bricht zusammen, ein anderes, angefeuert noch von der Mutter, geht mit der Hochzeitsgesellschaft durch, die Menschen fliehen in einen Park mit Blasorchester, und ganz plötzlich ist Ruhe und nichts scheint passiert

Marat/Sade ; The investigation ; and the shadow of the body of the coachman by Peter Weiss( Book )

7 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 341 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Peter Weiss (1916-1982) was virtually unknown in the mid-1960s when Peter Brook made Marat/Sade into a film. The weaving of time, space, plot, real-and-imagined characters, sexual liberation, and surrealist imagery made Marat/Sade a sensation. Little did audiences realize that this counterculture classic was written by a German Jew. At that time, Weiss was also at work on a play about Auschwitz: The Investigation. These two dramas are in this volume along with The Shadow of the Body of the Coachman. All are cogently introduced and edited by Robert Cohen

33 editions published between 1965 and 2009 in English and German and held by 304 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This powerful and savvage play, the climatic expression of Artiad's Theatre of Cruelty'. combines Sadeian philosophy and the discipline of verse with a range of theatrical shock techniques. No play by a German since Brecht has enjoyed the success of Marat/Sade, and its author, Peter Weiss, was one of the most remarkable of the post-war generation of German writers. This English version by Geoffrey Skelton and Adrian Mitchell was the text used in Peter Book's brilliant production for the Royal Shakespeare Company, and the play has also been produced all over the world by understand directors. This edition is accompanied by an new introduction for students written by Gill Lamden
