Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

"It is a curious fact that very few writers have ever been able to write both good novels and good plays. Almost invariably, even the most acclaimed and technically skilled novelist turns into a rank amateur when writing for the theatre.” A critic for 'The Guardian' has recently availed himself of this old stereotype on the occasion of a production of James Joyce’s only play, 'Exiles'.
In this workshop we will analyse dramatic works by twentieth century writers who have always been perceived exclusively as novelists and writers of short fiction. Some of these well-known writers of narrative texts produced only a single play, others two or more; what these works for the stage have in common is their status as barely known, neglected, marginalised literature, which the majority of them does not deserve.
