Death and the Ploughman

3 Male, 1 Female

Johannes von Saaz trans Michael West Price: $16.95

Written in the 15C by the Bohemian humanist Johannes von Saaz in Middle High German, Death and the Ploughman is a tragic dialogue between Death and a recently widowed farmer

"Quite extraordinary ... this translation is an eloquent one, filled with jewelled words and edged debate, a tribute to the original author and a serious achievement by his successor" - Irish Times

"Immensely personal, manifestly sceptical of received religious wisdom, and utterly fascinating, a Durer engraving given audible life" - Sunday Independent

Man lives in this world as a stranger in a strange land. The days of man run with swift feet; he lives and dies in the blink of an eye; death is his inheritance
