'Amphitryon 38' by Jean Giraudoux
Published Livre de Poche 1999(?), softcover, 159 pages.
In good condition, creasing to cover, all pages clean.

French language publication of Jean Giraudoux's 1929 play 'Amphitryon 38', so named, according to Giraudoux, because it was the thirty-eighth dramatization of that particular myth. A witty, philosophic discussion of the relationships between men, women, and the gods.

"I'm not afraid of death. It's the stake one puts up in order to play the game of life." ~Jean Giraudoux, Amphitryon, 1929

Hippolyte Jean Giraudoux (1882 - 1944) was a French novelist, essayist, diplomat and playwright. He is considered among the most important French dramatists of the period between World War I and World War II. Giraudoux's dramatic and narrative style is a rich and inimitable blend of allusive prose, allegory, fantasy, and political and psychological perceptions. He tempered tragic themes with rueful comedy, as though he wished to unite the contrasting qualities of Racine, Molire, Maeterlinck, and Baudelaire.

"Giraudoux's witty, sexy romp about gods behaving badly and the duel between the human and the divine, best read in the original French, is a most rewarding experience." ~Amazon
