Dimension2: Contemporary German-Language Literature

DÜRRENMATT, Friedrich
Friedrich Dürrenmatt, born in 1921 and died in 1990, is one of Switzerland's most important contemporary writers; in fact, he is perhaps the most important (and successful) German-language playwright in the generation after Brecht, especially with Der Besuch der alten Dame (1956) and Die Physiker (1962).

Tod des Sokrates (The Death of Socrates) from Turmbau: Stoffe IV-IX : Vol. 3, No. 3
