This collection of articles by both German literature specialists and German theater experts grew out of the Comparative Drama Conference held annually between February and March from 1977 to 1999 in Gainesville, Florida. At the center of the contributors' work is the productive tension between the literary and the performance aspects of German drama and theater. At the same time, the reception is truly American, since the German playwrights, directors, theorists, and dramatists discussed have gone through creative filters in the researching, performing, and teaching of German drama and theater on various campuses across the United States during the last third of the twentieth century.

It is against this background of the theater's high prestige as a forum for ideas, as the summit of the literary arts, as the place where all the arts coalesce in a Wagnerian 'Gesamtkunstwerk' or dialectically oppose and ironize each other in Brechtian epic 'alienation, ' of the drama as a method of thought, of concrete philosophizing, that the astounding wealth of critical and theoretical writings about drama and theater that the German-speaking world has produced over the last two hundred and fifty years must be seen and appreciated.

This volume considers prewar theatre in Hitler's Germany, a previously neglected subject in theatre history. An extended introduction sets the theatre scene of 1933 and charts major theatre regulations. The initial essay examines the "unified folk community" used to achieve power. Two chapters consider plays that achieved great success, and two cover specific theatres. The famous and privileged actor Werner Krauss is the subject of an essay on artistic responsibility, while a chapter on three famed directors shows how artists maneuvered for artistic freedom. The Propaganda Ministry's first national theatre festival in Dresden is covered. The two final chapters examine minority theatre--Jewish theatre in the anti-Semitic Third Reich and theatre in the concentration camps.

This book is a lens through which the reader may view the German theatre in the middle of the twentieth century. It offers an inside look at the upheavals and personalities shaping the German theatre from 1925 to 1961, when playwright Carl Zuckmayer (1896-1977) and director Heinz Hilpert (1890-1967) together created their major works. Their partnership is the book's major focus, although Brecht, Reinhardt, Kortner, and other major German theatre artists are prominent. The lens sweeps across the Weimar Republic, the Third Reich, and finally the Cold War period to examine in detail many events, people, and places important in German theatre history which have, to date, remained unchronicled in English.

The focus is on German drama in this multi-faceted view of developments on the European stage over three centuries. Scholars from Great Britain, Germany and the United States examine changes wrought in the art of drama by dramatists, by actors and stage designers, and by shifting patterns of thought and power-structures. The timespan extends from Moliere and Lessing, giants of the theatrical tradition, to such latter-day iconoclasts as Beckett, Handke and Achternbusch. The book is a tribute to Ronald Peacock, distinguished British Germanist and Comparatist."

In this study of the prose fiction of Das Junge Deutschland, the internal stresses and paradoxes of specific texts are examined and special attention is devoted to the unfulfilled strivings toward realism. Following an introduction to the young German problem, with special reference to Wienbarg, there are essays on Gutzkow, Mundt, Kuhne, and, as a contrast, the major novels of Immermann. The essays attempt to enhance the understanding of the post-Romantic crisis in German literature.
