A visionary masterpiece from "the new Ibsen"....

"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.

Review:

Mr Fosse...has been compared to Ibsen and to Beckett, and it is easy to see his work as Ibsen stripped down to its emotional essentials. But it is much more. For one thing, it has a fierce poetic simplicity. --New York Times

Book Description Dalkey Archive Press, United States, 2010. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. In her old house by the fjord, Signe lies on a bench and sees a vision of herself as she was more than twenty years earlier: standing by the window waiting for her husband Asle, on that terrible late November day when he took his rowboat out onto the water and never returned. Her memories widen out to include their whole life together, and beyond: the bonds of family and the battles with implacable nature stretching back over five generations, to Asle's great-great-grandmother Aliss. In Jon Fosse's vivid, hallucinatory prose, all these moments in time inhabit the same space, and the ghosts of the past collide with those who still live on. "Aliss at the Fire" is a visionary masterpiece, a haunting exploration of love and loss that ranks among the greatest meditations on marriage and human fate. Seller Inventory # AAC9781564785732
