V. and other poems by Tony Harrison( Book )

V. es la inicial de la preposición inglesa "versus", "contra". Pero también "v" es la inicial de "versos". Un juego de palabras que comienza por el título y continúa en el poema. Un poema que es un descenso a uno de los círculos del infierno de la sociedad contemporánea actual: el círculo de la alienación, el paro, la violencia, donde tan fácilmente surgen esos "hooligans", esos "skinheads" o cabezas rapadas neonazis que tanto inquitan desde hace años

Phaedra Britannica by Tony Harrison( Book )

13 editions published between 1975 and 2013 in English and held by 219 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In his adaptation of Racine, Harrison ingeniously transposes the action of the old Greek tragedy of Phaedra to the steamy landscape of an India seen through the narrow eye slits of Victorian society. The story seen through this arresting perspective with the ancient and vengeful Gods of India taking over from the Greek furies takes on a special vibrancy. 'Phaedra Britannica' was first performed by the National Theatre Company at the Old Vic in September 1975

A 'theatre piece' rather than a play, 'Square Rounds' is a meditation on armaments pioneers in the Great War. Written in verse and played by a large cast of women (some of whom have to get in drag to play the male boffins), the piece is a theatrical exploration of the double-edged nature of 'scientific progress'. 'Square Rounds' premiered at the Olivier Theatre, National Theatre, London, in October 1992
