WHAT

Written during the run up to the second great war, Don Juan Returns from the War looks back to the aftermath of WWI, as the slightly-past-his-prime Lothario returns to a Germany populated entirely by women. Professing to have abandoned his seductive lifestyle, Don Juan seeks out the one girl he regrets abandoning, only to struggle with his old ways. This new translation explores the conflict between the roles we imagine of ourselves and those society casts us in, as well as the all-too-familiar tendency to repeat destructive patterns when offered the chance to create a new world.
