War Cantata / Child Object
 

War Cantata / Child Object (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

By Tremblay, Larry
Translated by Turnbull, Keith
Translated by Bilodeau, Chantal

War Cantata looks at ways the impulse for violence is transmitted from one generation to the next, as when a father teaches his son contempt to help him become a soldier impervious to pity. Without focusing on a particular battle or soldier, this harsh, intense, choral text build...s the rhythmic power of words to expose war's spiral toward hatred.One of Quebec's most versatile writers, Larry Tremblay is a writer, director, and actor whose work continues to achieve international recognition.Keith Turnbull's career as translator and dramaturge is highlighted by a commitment to contemporary work in both theatre and opera.
