Reflections on the Theatre and Other Writings

Jean Genet


Faber & Faber, London, 1972. First UK Edition. Hardcover with illustrated Dust Jacket. 91pp., 5.25 x 8 inches

Near Fine with very minor rippling to the dust jacket. Faint foxing to the bright orange cloth boards and minor shelf wear. Else, a tight, bright and clean copy.

Containing three sections, “Letters to Roger Blin”, “The strange word urb…” and “What Remained of a Rembrandt”. The bulk of the text is dedicated to the letters which were written to Blin as he mounted the production of Genet’s “The Screens”, giving insight to both the production and Genet’s overall concepts on theatre as a whole. Beautifully typeset and designed edition with seldom seen entries in Genet’s canon.
