Abstract
 
Description
The life of Georg Buchner was short, intense, and tragic―and extremely significant for the development of modern drama. His three plays, Danton's Death, Leonce and Lena, and Woyzeck, were greatly ahead of their time in their penetrating dramatic and psychological treatment. They served as an impetus for contemporary schools of drama as different as the Theatre of the Absurd of Ionesco and the Epic Theatre of Brecht. lso presented in this only complete volume of Buchner in English are his two powerful prose pieces, The Hessian Courier and his short story, Lenz. - from Amzon
