Hamletmachine
Hamletmachine


Summary: English translation of Heiner Mueller's mind-bending The Hamletmachine. Mueller's single most famous work, the power-packed, incandescent core of the Euroleft, which anticipated the export-platform resistances of the Eurostate thirty years before the reality. Don't be fooled by the brevity of the play: every single word, sentence and turn of phrase is loaded with explosive connotations, references, double and triple entendres, criss-crossing like the lines on a city map or the circuits of a chip. Performances of this play would last for hours; Mueller would use music, sound, images, projections, and anything else handy to fill in the spaces created by the text. Footnotes have been added to explain some of the more obscure points.
