Thomas Bernhard (1931-1989) is one of the most interesting contemporary Austrian writers, the author of a great number of novels and plays, the bearer of numerous literary awards and distinctions. Having studied music, worked as a journalist and afterwards as a free-lance writer, he is well known to readers and viewers all over the world. Actors and actresses enjoy performing his plays, notwithstanding that directors are often overawed by his peculiar style, his provocative attitude to the world: the combination of obscure, destructive passions and witty jokes and even, though rarely, the joy of living. Included in this volume have been the plays of Thomas Bernhard: A Holiday for Boris, The Ignorant and the Madman, The Hunting Company, The Power of Custom, The President, The Famous, Minetti, Immanuel Kant and On Retirement, which had been written from 1970 to 1979. Thomas Bernhard is probably the greatest contemporary German language dramatist: very powerful and undefatigable, a man who has not yet given up his belief in the theatre, notwithstanding that he has been grumbling about it all the time. Klaus Peiman One can quote Bernhard's text. One can enjoy his sentences for hours. One can live with these sentences. Bernhard Minetti It seems that in the process of writing, Bernhard has become aware of what it meant to destroy a history, to be a typical destroyer of histories. Wendelin Schmidt-Dengler
