Woyzeck by Georg Büchner( Book )

3 editions published in 1962 in English and held by 289 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Sacrificed to powers larger than himself, Woyzeck is one of the theatre's first anti-heroes. He serves a German captain and makes money by allowing a doctor to experiment on him, but his deeper morality leads him to a tragic end. A remarkable piece of theatre, Woyzeck is not bound by strictures of conventional space and time. It is a tiny play, but an epic."--Jacket

Faust : part one and part two by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe( Book )

4 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 159 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As much poem as it is play, Faust is the spiritual quest of a soul determined to explore the very nature of Reality, a revolutionary work that refuses to accept limitations, but, like Romanticism itself, embraces all, the natural world of everyday life, as well as the Great World of universal experience, the macrocosm as well as the microcosm. In one aspect Faust records the journey of the feminine from its roots in the physical to the realm of Pure Idea, from animal to Eternal Feminine. Formation/Transformation is the road the play travels in its alchemical advance from base to exalted, from the unformed state to total individuation. Faust is the hero in whose being two contradictory forces collide. He is self-alienated man struggling to expand beyond the limitations of intellect and the known world, desperate to achieve a state, indeed mystical, where the opposites of Knowledge and Sensuality are One. Part One of Faust records that attempt in the context of earthly existence. Part Two unreels itself in the realm of myth, of classical antiquity, and of dream. Goethe's Faust has rightly been called the most audacious work in Western Civilization."--BOOK JACKET

Aeschylus in an hour by Carl Richard Mueller( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A thirty-five-year-old Aeschylus enlisted in the Athenian army and fought in the battle of Marathon (490 BCE) and Salamis (480 BCE). These battles were not only the prelude to Athenian military hegemony in the region but also to Athenian cultural dominance. Aeschylus himself would be part of that cultural revolution. Writing the great masterpiece, Oresteia, he took up a theme that first dawned on him at Salamis: the deep wisdom of the eternal justice which rules the world, as Thucydides wrote. Setting the playwright in context to his personal life, social, historical and political events, other writers of influence, and more, you will quickly gain a deep understanding of Aeschylus and the plays he wrote. Read Aeschylus in an hour and experience his plays like never before. Know the playwright, love the play!" -- Publisher description
Aristophanes in an hour by Carl Richard Mueller( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"During the Peloponnesian war, Aristophanes watched as the people of Attica, living on the outermost edge of Athens, suffered and died from the raids and invasions that came with six years of warfare. Frustrated, but infusing a touch of levity in everything he did, Aristophanes put his pen to paper to write the world's very first anti-war comedy, Acharnians. Thereafter, Aristophanes continued writing plays that foreshadowed the decline of Athens. Setting the playwright in context to his personal life, social, historical and political events, other writers of influence, and more, you will quickly gain a deep understanding of Aristophanes and the plays he wrote. Read Aristophanes in an Hour and experience his plays like never before..."--Publisher description
