The author of over 30 plays, including "The Castle", "Scenes from an Execution" and "The Possibilities", Howard Barker does not accept the theatrical conventions of what he terms "The Establishment Theatre". These fragments, essays, poems and thoughts on the nature of theatre likewise reject the constraints of "objective" academic theatre criticism. Rather, they explore the collision and collusion of intellect and artistry in the creative act. This new edition features a new introduction by Amanda Price and over twice as many essays.
