What Our Customers Say...
Publishers' Original Binding, With Dustwrapper
In the original unclipped dustwrapper.
This is the ninth impression of the first edition of this work, which was first published in 1936.
A dramatic collaboration between two major twentieth century writers, this play tells the story of a foolhardy climber who accepts a dangerous expedition and is destroyed by his own bravado. It is widely regarded as an allegory of Auden's own temptation to become a public figure.
