Abstract

Octave Mirbeau was one of the most prolific literary figures of France s storied Belle Epoque, and his innovative theatrical works are only recently being rediscovered and appreciated by modern audiences. Here for the first time in English-language translation are his two most celebrated and successful plays: "Business is Business," a classical comedy of manners recalling Moliere; and "Charity, "a satirical comedy centered around the exploitation of adolescents in a dubious charity home. In addition to the play texts, this volume also includes an introduction contextualizing the works and the translation and adaptation process."
