Y ou wouldn’t go to Austrian playwright Peter Handke’s play, inspired by the story of the 19th-century teenager discovered in Nuremberg who had been raised in isolation and who could speak only one sentence, for a fun night out, any more than hajdke would go to see King Lear expecting a feel-good factor.

Raped, in a good way, dirty, offended, facefucked with words, sentences and words, ramming nonsense down my throat, exhausting body, mind, eyes, mind, through constant kaspr making words meaningless and meaningfull at the same time. Avant-garde Austrian novelist and playwright.
