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.

Author Biography - Georg Buchner

Georg Buchner (1813-1837) was born in Germany. 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.
