Danton's Death, Leonce a. Georg Buchner died in 1837 at a tragically early age, and his three works for the stage remained virtually unknown for a half a century. Today they are performed regularly, and Danton is widely acknowledged as a classic of world theatre. Despite what Victor Price (translator) writes in the Introduction, and despite what I know of Georg Büchner’s tragically short-lived career (he died at the age of only 23), I couldn’t find anything of value in these three works.

Oxford University Press. Серия: Oxford World's Classics. At the age of ten, Fanny Price leaves the poverty of her Portsmouth home to be brought up among the family of her wealthy uncle, Sir Thomas Bertram, in the chilly grandeur of Mansfield Park. There she accepts her lowly status, and gradually falls in love with her cousin Edmund. When the dazzling and sophisticated Henry and Mary Crawford arrive, Fanny watches as her cousins become embroiled in rivalry and sexual jealousy.

Buchner's special quality, and that which makes him seem more contemporary than almost anything written today, is his total, uncompromising honesty of emotion and intellect.The German writer Georg Buchner, who died in 1837 aged 23, left only three works for the theatre. Danton's Death, his great fresco of the French Revolution, was written in five weeks when Buchner was under threat of arrest for his own revolutionary activities. His sad comedy, Leonce and Lena, was composed in haste for a publisher's competition for which it was entered too late. The extraordinary proletarian tragedy Woyzeck was left unfinished at Buchner's death. Virtually unknown until the end of the nineteenth century, the plays have found an important place in the modern international repertory.

One of my favorite tragic playwrights. Woyzeck is the best. I wish I wrote it. It is about the crappy way that a guy is treated by society. He is driven to madness. One could say that he didn't have all that much going on upstairs and had a tough time reading others.

I would have never heard about this unless I went to colege. It details in a different viewpoint the style of French Revolution happenings

The book was in perfect condition. I have not read it yet, but I am pleased with the service. Thank you so much!

“…only I don’t know who I am—which by the way shouldn’t surprise anybody, as I haven’t the remotest idea what I’m talking about, indeed I don’t even know that I don’t know, which makes it highly probable that somebody else is doing the talking and I’m only an arrangement of pipes and bellows” (spoken by Valerio in LEONCE AND LENA (p. 101).

I believe this snippet of dialogue pretty much sums up Büchner’s literary contribution.

Despite what Victor Price (translator) writes in the Introduction, and despite what I know of Georg Büchner’s tragically short-lived career (he died at the age of only 23), I couldn’t find anything of value in these three works. To me, the dialogue merely sounded illogical and disjointed—and represented, at best, an effort to dazzle with words.

Georg Büchner was no dummie; that much we know. And while I understand that theatrical plays are meant to be played to be properly appreciated, one can still evaluate a playwright’s talents on the page. I just didn’t see any here—and yet I’m more than willing to say that this failing to find genius in Büchner’s work was my failure as a reader rather than his as a writer.
