 CELEBRATING HANDKE'S IBSEN PRIZE


""The International Ibsen Award honors this year a work that is unparalleled in terms formal beauty and brilliant reflection. Peter Handke appear throughout this work as a cosmopolite, one who writes on world literature and provides diversity in human stories and shared history room and protection. His texts creates transparency, encourages daring to define itself, and has for years helped to create ever greater acceptance of the fragmented and available innuendo. As Shakespeare's Prospero, Peter Handke created an island, where he has been able to put off what he

has collected from Alaska to Slovenia, suburban and meetings with their ancestors. How Peter Handke in over half a century created the most unusual form of classicism after the Second World War, and he creates it still. "



I'll post a link here to the Knausgard laudatio as soon as it comes on line.

HANDKE'S IBSEN PRIZE
makes me happy,
for him
and for theater.

=3=

I have a few bones to pick with our man, but they are brittle bones, none include his defense of the unjustly - for being exclusively - accused Serbians.
Nothig provokes my nausea reflex as much
as the dispensable righteousness of
the U.S. “humanity hyenas” in respect to that still tender subject.

I laugh off the old bones, for few matters have made me happier or given me more joy than some of Handke's plays and my work on them and some of his books.

The most entirely unexpected
experiences of my life!
Happenings, and some of the plays
even induce catharses!
Good Hours!

Peter Strasser wrote
Peter Handke FREUDENSTOFF (stuff of joy)
and though I pride myself on figuring out a lot of things
and am anything but mystically inclined
the transmigration of Handke's mother's love into his love of writing and of text and its evocation of joy in me in instances such a

My Year in the No-Man's Bay
+
Crossing the Sierra del Gredox
+
Don Juan (as told by himsef)
+
The Repetirion
+
The Assaying of the Jukebox

etc etc etc

exceeds the power & ingenuity that reason has bestowed on me.

Among the surfeit of prizes he once said he would refuse (but did not!) the Ibsen Prize


looks to be the perfect one. For indeed, theater will never be the same, not that the U.S., or its art directors or critics
is any less ignorant in this respect than in so many others, or his chief U.S. publisher, Farrar, Straus,
any more competent.

A combination of Shakespeare and Oedipus might appear yet they would not know.
Here we have a Shakespearean talent!
Nonetheless, despite constant deference to the Bard of Avon, the naturalism of the familiar emoticon Aha persists.


=6=

Handke says he is a realist, true enough in that he has renovated the great realist prose tradition and introduced profound innovations there.
In his theater he has added the
“happening factor” to the ambiguity of reality.

Public Insult
Kaspar
The Ride Across Lake Constance
They Are Dying Out
Walk About the Villages
The Hour We Knew Nothing of Each Other
The Art of Asking
Voyage by Dugout
Till the Day do Us Part
Forever Storm
The Beautiful Days of Aranjuez

Look: how he does NOT repeat himself!
Look how he challenges his audience!
Look how U.S reviewers and art directors can't deal with that!


=7=

Just look at all the stuff that's been mounted since the mid-80s and the Handke that has not been done in the English-speaking world!

and you realize that, as usual, the U.S missed the boat, and will come arunning once it is nearly out of sight.

NOTE


At one time ex-author Richard Schechner of TDR
offered to publish my Handke drama lectures as a TDR book,
asked if he had $ 1000 to help defray
he did not, thus, so far, my work along
my line remains incomplete
