With an Introduction by David Pownall, and an essay by Peter Craze
A volume of language-rich, theatrically-ambitious tragedies. Betts' hugely popular verse drama Incarcerator (White Bear and BAC) was a Time Out Critics' Choice, while his Five Visions of the Faithful (White Bear), is a series of uncompromising narratives exploring freedom, faith, death and desire. In Silence and Violence the wife of a war hero seduces a much-reviled sculptor as Betts examines the artist's quest for self-expression in a Philistine state. Betts' first radio play, The Last Days of Desire, was commissioned by the BBC.
