about this item

(Book). "Fo emulates the jesters of the Middle Ages in scourging authority and upholding the dignity of the downtrodden." Nobel Prize Committee These fables spark the imagination, challenge the conscience, and delight the soul. Greed and corruption are Fo's irreverent subjects for this satirical Fellini-esque provocation. Fo convenes courtiers, popes, cardinals, generals, peasants and one man who despite his own earthly appetites and desires becomes a saint. "Imagine" wrote The New York Times about Fo, "a cross between Bertolt Brecht and Lenny Bruce, and you may begin to have an idea of the scope of Fo's anarchic wit."
