Other Literary Forms

(Critical Edition of Dramatic Literature)

Arthur Adamov is best remembered for his plays, despite the fact that his long and checkered career began with the writing of Surrealist poetry as early as 1924. His autobiographical volume L’Aveu (1946; confession) is described by critic Martin Esslin as “among the most terrifying and ruthless documents of self-revelation in the whole of world literature.”
