Exile: a critical study of Peter Weiss by Roger Ellis( )

10 editions published between 1980 and 1983 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study examines the career of the dramatist Peter Weiss and traces in his work the development of his central concern for the relationship between the writer and society. Several modern playwrights have dealt with the subject of the writer's social function, but few have explored it so persistently throughout their careers as Peter Weiss. The dissertation shows how Weiss's concern for the writer's potential role as social reformer penetrated his early prose and plays, how it inspired Marat/Sade and then drew him into a temporary commitment to radical socialism, and how it finally revealed to him the extent of his indirect influence upon society as an independent leftist artist
