"The life of Georg Bèuchner was short, intense, and tragic--and ... significant for the development of modern drama. His three plays ... were ... ahead of their time in their ... 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. Also presented in this only complete volume of Bèuchner in English are his two powerful prose pieces, The Hessian Courier and his short story Lenz"--Publisher marketing.

Exploring a range of topics, including Greek tragedy, Shakespearean theater, contemporary British plays, opera, and the theatricality of Parisian culture, this compilation provides new perspectives on the relationship between Eros and Death in a series of dramatic texts, theatrical practices, and cultural performances. Detailed and analytical, these informative essays demonstrate how changing attitudes towards sexuality and death--opposed but entangled passions--were reflected in theater throughout the course of history. Psychoanalytical and philosophical models are also referenced in this work that features essays from dramatists Dic Edwards, David Ian Rabey, and David Rudkin.

Georg Buchner (1813-37) left "Woyzeck" unfinished at his death. It is one of the most remarkable dramas ever written in any language, and since its publication in 1879 and its first performance in 1913 it has influenced almost every significant movement in European theatre. This book presents a new, accurate and actable English translation, based on the German edition by Werner Lehmann. It also includes an introduction devoted to the dramatic style of "Woyzeck, " the criteria for a reconstruction and a translation, and the play's production demands; and a theatrical commentary on each scene, devoted to the problems of staging the play and the ways in which each scene can be realized in production."

The works of Georg Buchner consists of only a few hundred pages written by a man who died in 1837 at the age of twenty-three, yet its influence on 20th-century literature can hardly be exaggerated. Particularly his drama, a century before Brecht, is considered an important precursor of the major trends in drama today. This edition includes the plays Danton's Death, Leonce and Lena, a reconstruction and synopsis of Woyzeck, the novella Lenz, the political essay The Hessian Messenger, and all the surviving letters.
