Of the dramas Handke wrote subsequent to the end of his first period, in 1973, with the exception of the both forward and backward looking

HOWEVER, THERE ARE SOME BOOK REVIEWS
AND SPURIOUS COMMENTS FROM THE LIKES OF ZASLOVE & JAFFE & DELARUNT

KEY WORDS: ARNEHOO ZASLOVE/ HAROLDINE JAFFE/ OSCAR DELARUNTAYE/ NY TIMES, ETC.

Compared to the period 1971-1994, which began so favorably –
America greening  -
under Mel Gussow and Richard Gilman’s aegis  -
 the reception, such as it is, has declined in quality to… Trumpian abysms - I kid thee not, wait until you see quotes from idiot swine ignorami like alleged theater director bankrupt theater owner
Arne Zaslove
If in 2013 I don’t get this from an Zaselove
the once director of the Bathhouse theater, which took a final bath courtesy of his grandiosity
the kind of charming fraud 
as you find them among thespians
whom Kurt Beattie & I took out to lunch around the year 2002 to see if he would do a reading of
WALK ABOUT THE VILLAGES
after the amazing Sarah Nash Gates at the U. of Froshington had killed
The Handke Festival
But he hadn’t even read the script then years later nor any Handke for that matter, yet if one fine day I don’t receive the below communication:

Arne Zaslove <arnezaslove@earthlink.net>
17.12.15

“I am not interested in anything to do with Handke!!!!”!!  

This came on the heels of a
Harold Jaffe
communication
(Handke’s friend Erich Skwara
 whose
Plague in Siena 
I had translated happily  took this sad case of an editor on a tour of Handke’s Chaville pied da terre
CHAVILLE
https://plus.google.com/photos/106505819654688893791/albums/5626292238954112465  )


which elicited the following comment from
Professor San Diego State & editor
 Harold Jaffee
Harold Jaffe <hjaffe@mail.sdsu.edu>
7/11/12
   

to me


“Handke is a fat bourgeois with fascist inclinations.”

Harold Jaffe <hjaffe@mail.sdsu.edu>

/2016
to me


“This is bullshit, you are bullshit, Handke, especially, is bullshit.”





 Delaruntay 
The London Review of Books allows him to call Handke “asshole” 
Guess who nominated himself!

And in situ Seattle!

There are few Handke productions of the pre-
WALK ABOUT THE VILLAGES

&
 HOUR WE KNEW NOTHING ABOUT EACH OTHER

1971-94 period:

1)   The occasional
OFFENDING THE AUDIENCE,
which finally found its thief among the many other things that have been stolen

a swine named Neininger
 from the U/W Department of German

   2) THEY ARE DYING OUT
is done under an anti-capitalist aegis
the great HOUR occasionally,
but that’s pretty much it.

And one single solitary premiere from the host of great plays that exist in translation from the second post 1982
WALK ABOUT THE VILLAGES /  HOUR
 quite different period

The exceptional singular premiere by the most unlikely of chances being Scott Abbott’s and mine -
director friend Zejlko Dukic beckoned me back into that fray -
