Description - Lenz by Georg Buchner

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

At his death at the age of 24 in 1837, Georg Buchner also left behind Leonce and Lena, Woyzeck, and Danton's Death--bold, psychologically and politically acute plays that were also well ahead of their time. His dramatic works exercised a profound influence on Brecht and Ionesco, as well as on the composer Alban Berg and the filmmaker Werner Herzog. Richard Sieburth's translations include Gerard de Nerval's Selected Writings, Friedrich Holderlin's Hymns and Fragments, Walter Benjamin's Moscow Diary, Henri Michaux's Emergences/ Resurgences and Stroke by Stroke, Gerard de Nerval's The Salt Smugglers, Michel Leiris' Nights as Day, Days as Night, and Gershom Scholem's The Fullness of Time: Poems. His edition of Nerval's Selected Writings won the 2000 PEN/Book-of-the-Month-Club Translation Prize. His recent translation of Maurice Sceve's Delie was a finalist for the PEN Translation Prize and the Weidenfeld Prize.
