Synopsis

Tasso & Clavigo

Tasso & Clavigo $14.99

Goethe trans/adapt Robert David MacDonald

Published by Oberon

Goethe's classical verse play Tasso (1790) examines, in his own words, 'the disproportion of talent to life' and the predicament of the artist at odds with the world around him

In Clavigo (1774), a play which Goethe claimed only took him a week to write, we find the first of the double-portraits which culminate in the two souls that wrestle for dominion in the breast of Faust

The ambiguity of his presentation of Goethe is thoroughly new and interesting and adds greatly to the play's appeal

Both these translations were premiered at the Citizens Theatre, Glasgow
