Abstract:

""The Peasants' Bible" is a collection of five monologues drawn from Italian folklore but filtered through Fo's singular lens - for example, an Adam and Eve who are passionately entwined like peas in a pod; a race between two classes of men struggling for power that resembles the legend of the Hare and the Tortoise - to form a Bible of the common man. In "The Story of the Tiger," we find a Fourth Army soldier injured fighting Chiang Kai-shek's army, saved from starvation by being suckled by an enormous tiger, who then comes back to defeat Kai-shek by using model tigers in combat."--BOOK JACKET.
