    2. The art of revolution28 March 2013 This is one of those pieces of literature that I simply love, and it is a play that I definitely have to see performed (if it is ever performed, so I will have to keep my ear to the ground). Anyway, the author, a German, writes a play which is about a group of playwrights performing Coriolanus during the backdrop of the 1959 uprising in East Berlin. Obviously the uprising was put down, and it was done so quite brutally. In fact there is one section of the play [...]


    3. رییس :دستور طبخ جرم همینه!یه شاخه ی کوچیک نادونی رو با یه قاشق سرخالی عشق نابجا به آزادی مخلوط کنین،بعد تو خمیر تردید ِ از آگاهی ِمن بپیچینش. بعدش سر و کله ی اونا پیدا میشه منو باانگشت نشون میدن و میگن :"دستپخت خودشه "


    4. The four-star rating is for the book taken as a whole. It is made up of three distinct parts:(1) A 30-page address given by the author at the Academy of Arts and Letters, in Berlin on 23 April 1964, The Prehistory and Posthistory of the Tragedy of Coriolanus from Livy and Plutarch via Shakespeare down to Brecht and Myself, which is a welcome introduction to the play, its historical context, and also serves as a sort-of comparative analysis between Shakespeare's Coriolanus and Bertolt Brecht's ad [...]


    5. Obra de teatro que leí (entre todas las otras que no guardé en ) para proponerle a mi curso como obra de egreso (o sea la ultima obra como alumnos :')) No fue la elegida, pero a mi me gustó mucho.


    6. Grass, in this drama, uses an ingenious ploy to discuss the workers uprising in East Germany in 1959. The Boss, thinly veiled as Bertolt Brecht, is modifying Shakespeare’s Coriolanus to support communist rhetoric. Coriolanus deals with a peasant uprising, and so it is a natural fit for such a play. The east German workers were protesting an increase in their norms of production by 10 percent. The workers appeal to Brecht to support them, in fact they seem assured at first that he’ll do so. H [...]


    7. Se trata del viejo mal: mi curiosidad. Lo que quisiera saber es quién al final se sale con la suya: la naturaleza o mi teatro. que nosotros, por ejemplo, no podemos cambiar Shakespeare en tanto no cambiemos nosotros mismos.-Sentado dijo al tigre: antes de que pases a la práctica, dime el número de tus dientes, confiésame bajo qué sistema están ordenados; me gustaría saber a qué estética obedecen tus articulaciones.-¿Tanto tiempo le dejó el tigre al teórico?-Al final se fue con el rab [...]
