and driven by a breathless tempo. Peter Wortsman captures the breathlessness and power of Heinrich von Kleist’s transcendent prose.
Kleist was a many-sided genius, and this selection shows his gifts as a dramatist, short-story writer and essayist. The plays selected are The Broken Jug (one of the few good German comedies, recently given a new setting by John Banville), Amphitryon, and The Prince of Homburg. The stories include the historical chronicle, Michael Kohlhaas, which is virtually a short novel, and there are also excerpts from Kleist's journalism and that astonishingly prophetic essay, The Pup- pet Theatre. The last, deeply moving letters were written as farewells on the eve of Kleist's suicide just outside Berlin in November 1811.
Aiming in his translation for an English haunted and affected by the strangeness of the original, David Constantine offers a wealth of Heinrich von Kleist's key writings in this collection, the most ambitious of its kind.
