Many of his plays created a furore when produced, but their stage effectiveness made them very successful with theatre audiences. His disrupted language constantly breaks the rules of syntax and ignores the conventions of expression. Yet it still works. Indeed, it is a very effective instrument for revealing the violence which lies not so far below the surface of respectable society, which is Schwabs major theme.
