These Sad Places, Why Must You Enter Them?

 

Howard Barker is a dramatist, poet and painter whose works for the stage are performed extensively in Europe, the US, and Australia. With an ecstatic faith in the potential of language to expose and luxuriate in contradiction, his theatre articulates the instinctive truths that rage against social conformity.

 

Published for the first time in English, These Sad Places juxtaposes Barker’s pen drawings alongside this short collection of aphorisms, offering a stark and haunting meditation on some of the questions that underlie his substantial body of work.
