The Drowned Land «and» La Vita Breve

Translated by Donald Flanell Friedman and Suzanne Burgoyne


Suzanne Borgoyne

This volume combines Paul Willems' 1990 novella, The Drowned Land, a haunting and magic transformation of the Atlantis legend, and his most recent play, La Vita Breve, which launches the reader upon a voyage into the dark night of the soul. Both novella and play explore the frontiers of dream and reality, investigating the relationship of guilt and innocence, memory and desire.
