What People are Saying About This

Peter Hallward

Badiou is one of very few writers for the theater to reflect explicitly on the contemporary possibilities, and limits, of political theater.

Peter Hallward, Kingston University

Catherine Malabou

Between three Pauls, the apostle, Claudel, and Jean-Paul Sartre, Badiou revives the tradition of political theater. In language of unprecedented beauty, he portrays a city—both archaic and ultra-contemporary—whose prince is, or will be, a woman.
