Description

Since an account of every known staging would require several volumes, Kleist on Stage is limited to major productions in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland that attracted more than the usual press coverage, and to interpretations and adaptations outside the German-speaking countries. Reeve presents a chronological stage history of each of the plays, beginning with Die Familie Schroffenstein and ending with Prinz Friedrich von Homburg. He also discusses some of the problems faced by a director attempting to put a Kleistian drama on stage, and pleads for greater understanding and cooperation between the academic and theatrical traditions.
