Fantasio and Other Plays

Fantasio and Other Plays $24.99

Alfred de Musset

Published by Nick Hern Books

The French Romantic poet Alfred De Musset (1810-57) was the author of perhaps the greatest French plays of his century

From the sprawling historical panorama of his Lorenzaccio (trans. Paul Schmidt) to the compact and charming elucidation of his proverbial You Can't Think of Everything (trans. Feingold) from the clown-as-Hamlet buffoonery of Fantasio (trans. Howard) to the romantic comedy turned dark parable of Don't Trifle with Love (trans. Jackson), Musset created an astonishing range of voices and dramatic forms for his explorations of human relations, perfectly reflected by the translations gathered here
