Reviews - What do customers think about La Cantatrice Chauve: Anti-Piece / La Lecon: Drame Comique (Collection Folio, 236)?

the absurd at its best!  Jun 2, 2001
Ionesco promised to deliberately explore the post WW2 world by integrating the ABSURD (post-existentialist stream of thought) into the everyday life. He did it with such an ingenious way of portraying the lives of two bourgeouis couples who suffer the scandalous effects of WW2. By breaking all rules concerning grammar and the written way of expression as a means to justify the absurdity which lives inside of us and expressed orally with our "stream of consciousness". Pure genius on his writng skills, ionesco demonstrates just how far one can go just by simply observing the distortions of human relations when affected by dark historical moments...
The Other Reviewer Missed the Point  May 2, 2000
Whether you love or hate absurdist (ahem) writers, this play is one of the most exemplary editions of a very important phase in postmodern drama. The other reviewer gives no reason why he didn't like it other than he didn't understand it. Bad critic.
Ionesco was an absurdist, but this play was absurdly awful  Apr 9, 1999
Wow, I usually like books that are very metaphorical and complex, but I found this book to be too over the top. I became lost in the babble. It put me to sleep. I was too tired to find the symbolism and critiques of society!
