Summary/Review: Towards the end of her life, the French philosopher and mystic Simone Weil (1909-43) was working on a tragedy, 'Venice Saved'. Appearing here in English for the first time, this play explores the realisation of Weil's own thoughts on tragedy. A figure of affliction, a central theme in Weil's religious metaphysics, the central character offers a unique insight into Weil's broader philosophical interest in truth and justice, and provides a fresh perspective on the wider conception of tragedy itself.
