    I didn't read this book linearly, as I was reading it for a university class. So, I ended up reading the Misanthrope last which ended up being the best way in my opinion. I've never read the original, but I loved the characters of John, Jennifer and Alceste. Although, Alceste is a pompous ass, at the end of the play I really did feel sympathetic for him. I love how Jennifer is both vulnerable and in complete control at all times. I also enjoyed Attempts on Her Life, but it was much easier to unde I didn't read this book linearly, as I was reading it for a university class.

I also enjoyed Attempts on Her Life, but it was much easier to understand when watching a stage adaption (free on Youtube). The way Crimp has chosen to break the form of the play is not lost on me here and I really did enjoy. I also liked the fact that this play was followed by the more conventional The Country. The biggest problem I had with every single piece however was Crimp's point. I feel like he's really trying to sell a moral or point with each play (even if that point is that there is no point) and I feel like I'm nearly there but not quite grasping it. Crimp does make up for this, in my opinion, with his fantastic use of language. Every time a character speaks it sounds so naturalistic and I can completely believe somebody saying it word for word.

    O Campo, de Martin Crimp, versão de Pedro Mexia, 2013. A pontuação de 3 estrelas não se refere ao livro Plays 2, mas sim à peça O Campo (The Country), de Martin Crimp, a única que li das que o livro reúne -- e que li numa tradução não editada em Portugal (por enquanto), a que tive acesso por iniciativa do Mexia. O carácter excessivamente repetitivo dos diálogos, característica comum dos textos dramáticos que sempre fez as delícias da casa, contribuiu, no caso, para alguma saturação.

Um texto menos acutilante e cirúrgico do que eu esperava, mas não totalmente desinquietante.
