George Buchner trans Gregory Motton

Published by Nick Hern Books

4 Female

A modern classic which remains frighteningly relevant to today's headlines. Based on a real-life murder trial that took place in Germany in the 1820s, the play was written in 1837 but not staged until 1913

The young Woyzeck was charged with the murder of his girlfriend, and eventually executed, despite evidence which suggested he was suffering a psychological disorder. Translated by Gregory Motton with an introduction by Kenneth McLeish
