"Elfriede Jelinek, born in 1946, is one of the most important contemporary authors writing in German and has won numerous literary prizes, including the Mulheim Dramatist Prize (on four occasions) and the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2004. Novels such as Women as Lovers, Lust and The Piano Teacher (adapted into an award-winning film directed by Michael Haneke and starring Isabelle Huppert) have made her internationally recognized. Jelinek's theatre plays have addressed topics such as gender and class inequality, racism and xenophobia, right-wing populism and the repression of a national socialist legacy in Austria, the war in Iraq and the global financial crisis. Lacking a plot and psychological characters, the texts work with language in a playful and musical fashion that brings out surprising truths. Widely performed, her plays' challenging and experimental nature has inspired directors to create their own postdramatic interpretations."
