IMAGINE THAT AMANN, JURG
Description
This is not a fairy tale in the usual sense. There are no princesses, no golden eggs, no happy endings. A brooding portrait of a solitary post apocalyptic existence, The Fairy Tale of the World is nonetheless compelling. The story was originally conceived by a brilliant young German writer, Georg Buchner, who died tragically at the age of twenty-three. His dark vision reflects the social injustice of his time. Award-winning Swiss author Jurg Amann has adapted The Fairy Tale of the World from a scene in Büchner's Woyzeck, a moving play about the effects of poverty. Internationally acclaimed artist Kathi Bhend has stunningly and surprisingly interpreted Amman's lyrical language and bleak imagery. Together they have created a book that offers not only Buchner's dark vision but also a promise of innocence and hope in a dark, despairing world. Colour illustrations
