Tom Stoppard: Plays

Obálka knihyThis volume contains a cross-section of work by the Czech-born contemporary English playwright Tom Stoppard (1937), including his most famous plays, which are representative of the playwright’s individual creative stages: Stoppard’s brilliant absurdist play Rosenkrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead (1968, transl. by Jaroslav Kořán), which established his fame, the penetrating Wildean historical parody Travesties (1974, transl. by Michael Žantovský), the love comedy The Real Thing (1982, transl. by Jitka Sloupová) and Arcadia (1994, transl. by Jaroslav Kořán).
The volume also contains one-act plays by Stoppard never before published in Czech: the detective comedy The Real Inspector Hound (1968), translated for this publication by Dana Hábová, and the diptych Dogg’s Hamlet, Cahoot’s Macbeth (1979, transl. by Jaroslav Kořán), inspired by the fates of Czech dissident playwrights. The author of the accompanying study ‘Tom Stoppard’ (from 2000) is the playwright’s countryman Jim Hunter.
