The Virgin and the Unicorn: Four Plays by Oscar Mandel
Publisher: Spectrum Productions | ISBN: 0914502107 | edition 1993 | PDF | 180 pages | 5,3 mb
In rough shorthand, the four plays in this volume speak essentially in two voices—the voice of prose and the voice of poetry. By prose I mean down-to-earth dialogue in contemporary settings, by poetry I mean flights into spaces that never were, whether articulated in verse or not.
I have arranged the plays so as to create two little voice-waves with them, poetry-prose-poetry-prose. The reader’s armchair journey begins with a unicorn roaming through a mock-medieval landscape lightly sprinkled with metaphysical suggestions; then comes a tale I have imagined as taking place, why not? at New York University, in whose halls, elevators, musty classrooms and agitated neighborhood I spent my four undergraduate years; followed by an ascension to the Garden of Eden, though not quite in the spirit of the prophets and rabbis; and concluding with a descent to an upholstered-furniture plant in Orlando, Florida, where the journey trails off with a view of trucks driving “onto the highway beyond.”
