It is often recognized as his most impressive yet most easily understood work.The play was first performed in Zürich in 1962 and published the same year by Verlags AG "Die Arche". It was translated into English by James Kirkup, and published in the US in 1964 by Grove Press, under its Evergreen imprint. Source: Wikipedia (en)
