Lenz by Georg Buchner

Book Description

B chner's expressionistic account of the 19th century playwright Lenz and his descent into madness is one of the earliest examples of modernist prose in European literature. Writing well ahead of his time, B chner evokes landscapes that have a Van Gogh/Cezanne-like quality to them, connecting the human psyche to the land in a wondrous way.

Georg Buchner by Georg Buchner Georg Buchner, Paperback (May 2012)

Few writers have transformed literature and theater so dramatically. Based on Henry J. Schmidt's translations of The Hessian Messenger, Danton's Death, Lenz, Leonce and Lena, and Woyzeck.

Danton's Death by Georg Buchner Danton's Death, Paperback (July 2010)

With its hair-raising on-rush of scenes and vivid dramatisation of complex, visionary characters, Danton's Death has a claim to be the greatest political tragedy ever written.

Lenz by Georg Buchner Lenz, Paperback (February 2009)

Set against the strikingly beautiful backdrop of the Vosges mountains, this book tells the tale of a real-life writer's nineteen-day stay in Waldersbach in 1778. It describes his wanderings around the mountainous surroundings and his worsening fits of madness, eventually culminating in his removal, under guard, to Strasbourg.

His plays (Leonce and Lena, Woyzeck, Danton's Death) were ahead of their time both psychologically and politically, influencing contemporary playwrights as different as Ionesco and Brecht. Richard Sieburth's translations include Friedrich Holderlin's Hymns and Fragments, Walter Benjamin's Moscow Diary, Gerard de Nerval's Selected Writings, and Henri Michaux's Emergences/Resurgences. His English edition of the Nerval won the 2000 PEN Book-of-the-Month-Club Translation Prize.
