Time Plays by Percival
Poems, poetic letters, prose, plays, and autobio graphical words ... there is no lack of playful words in Time Plays. The first (limited) edition was published in 1999, and in August that year at Shakespeare & Company, Paris, the author recited some of his Time Plays poems.
This new, illustrated, revised and enlarged edition has no limits. One of the texts is a speech called ‘The SolarConsciousness Era', and at the end of the book you can read: ‘Who is a Human Being in Time's Play?'
Once the Irish playwright Samuel Beckett wrote to the author (living in Stockholm, Sweden): ‘Best wishes for the future of Time Plays.' Now the future is here and Time Plays.
