From morn to midnight : a play in seven scenes by Georg Kaiser( Book )

Knocked for six by his lust for an exotically perfumed woman from Florence, a trusted bank clerk of twenty-five years' standing shoves a stolen fortune in his pocket and runs to her hotel, where his ludicrous advances are rejected. But, he's broken free and there's no turning back. He ditches his family and their bourgeois existence to embark on a roller-coaster odyssey, scouring the city's senseless entertainments in an increasingly disillusioned search for an experience worth buying and a reason for living. "I am a changed man! I have sixty thousand marks and I'm going to decide for myself what is and isn't pointless so to hell with you!"

"Ernst Toller was an active revolutionary who was also an accomplished poet and playwright. Indeed he became a writer during a five-year prison sentence for his part in the 1919 November Revolution in Bavaria. He was jailed at the age of 25: by the time of his release in 1924 he had written four major plays, now acknowledged masterpieces of German Expressionism, all of which had been performed by the leading avant-garde theatres of the day." "The Machine Wreckers is one of those plays. Set largely in Nottingham in the early years of the 19th century, it depicts the suffering amongst the local weavers, caused by the introduction of mechanised looms - the 'machines' of the title. The resultant Luddite riots were defended in the House by Lord Byron in his maiden speech there."--BOOK JACKET
