|Don Juan oder die Liebe zur Geometrie (1953) || Max Frisch |
|In this German play, sometimes presented in English translation as "Don Juan or the Love of Geometry", the famous lover explains to the audience that the other authors who have written about him have gotten it all wrong; it is mathematics and not women that he truly loves.
Thanks to Thorben Brunschütte for bringing this work of mathematical fiction to my attention.
