About the book:

In the mid-1960s, "The Persecution and Assassination of Jean-Paul Marat as Perfomed by the Inmates of the Asylum of Chernton under the Direction of the Marquis de Sade" was made into a film by British director Peter Brook. The weaving of space, time, plot, real and imagined characters, sexual liberation, and surrealist imagery made "Marat/Sade" a sensation. Little did audiences realize that this "counterculture" play was actually written by a German Jew. The then practically unknown Peter Weiss (1916-82) was also at work on a play about Auschwitz - "The Investigation" - which is one of the most significant literary treatments of the subject. Both plays, plus "The Shadow of the Coachman's Body" are included in this volume.
