The Killer and Other Plays (Improvisation, or the Shepherd's Chameleon & Maid to Marry).

By Eugene Ionesco.

New York, NY Grove Press: Evergreen Original, 1960. Paperback First Edition (1960), so stated. Ninth Printing Thus. Very Good+ in Wraps: shows indications of very careful use: very light wear to the extremities; faint toning to the wrapper covers; the orange portions of the titles at the backstrip are very lightly sunned, but remain bold and clearly legible; former owner's name inscribed at the front free endpaper; the binding remains square and secure; text clean. Remains close to 'As New'. NOT a Remainder, Book-Club, or Ex-Library. 8vo. (8 x 5.4 x 0.45 inches). 159 pages. Translated by Donald Watson. Language: English. Weight: 5.6 ounces. Sewn binding. First Edition (1960), so stated. Ninth Printing Thus. Trade Paperback. With Tueur sans gages, translated as The Killer (1959; his second full-length play, the first being Amédée, ou Comment s'en débarrasser in 1954), Ionesco began to explore more sustained dramatic situations than he had in his earlier plays. The Killer features more humanized characters. Notably this includes Bérenger, a central character in a number of Ionesco's plays. Bérenger is a semi-autobiographical figure expressing Ionesco's wonderment and anguish at the strangeness of reality. He is comically naïve, engaging the audience's sympathy. In The Killer, he encounters death in the figure of a serial killer. In Rhinocéros he watches his friends turning into rhinoceroses one by one until he alone stands unchanged against this mass movement. It is in this play that Ionesco most forcefully expresses his horror of ideological conformism, inspired by the rise of the fascist Iron Guard in Romania in the 1930s. "The Killers" was Ionesco's most ambitious play up to 1960, and I found it very impressive once the full effect of the sets and lighting throughout each of the three acts was apparent. The two shorter works, "Improvisation" and "Maid to Marry" were quite amusing.

The Life of Timon of Athens.

By William Shakespeare.

Very Good+ to Near Fine: the price has been blocked out at the upper front panel; a hint of toning to the white background field of the panels and backstrip; else flawless.

(7 x 4.25 x 0.5 inches). xxxviii, 239 pages. Edited by Maurice Charney. Language: English. Weight: 5.7 ounces. Mass Market Paperback. Reading Timon of Athens was like discovering a huge diamond in your backyard. I'd never heard anyone talk about it, never seen it alluded to, and yet, here it is, oozing with opulence. I loved loved loved this play. The plot is delicious, the language is fantastic, some of Shakespeare's best insults can be found here, and I really enjoyed seeing the vast change in Timon's character. It is a short play, and yes, there probably are a few inky areas subject to criticism, but even the "worst" of Shakespeare is going to be immeasurably better than anything else you might pick up to read. Some people allege that it is an "unfinished" play, but that's completely wrong. It is most certainly finished. The conclusion may not be as thematic at most of the "tragedies," but it is still a fine conclusion. I highly, highly recommend reading this play. It's super short so you'll be able to finish it in as little as a day, and it's always exciting to read a classic that people haven't pored and pored over. Timon definitely deserves more credit, in my opinion, as it's now one of my favorite Shakespeare plays.
