Overview

Volume I of II of the plays by Gerhart Hauptmann, who was a German dramatist who received the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1912. Hauptmann was born in Obersalzbrunn, a small city of Silesia, now known as Szczawno-Zdrój and a part of Poland. Hauptmann's first drama, Vor Sonnenaufgang inaugurated the naturalistic movement in modern German literature; it was followed by Das Friedensfest, Einsame Menschen and Die Weber, a powerful drama depicting the rising of the Silesian weavers in 1844. Of Hauptmann's subsequent work, mention may be made of the comedies Kollege Crampton, Der Biberpelz and Der rote Hahn, a "dream poem," Hannele, and an historical drama Florian Geyer. He also wrote two tragedies of Silesian peasant life, Fuhrmann Henschel and Rose Bernd, and the dramatic fairy-tales Die versunkene Glocke and Und Pippa tanzt. 1911 was the zenith: he wrote Die Ratten, for which he received the Nobel Prize. During the First World War Hauptmann was a Pacifist. Volume I contains Before Dawn (Vor Sonnenaufgang), The Weavers (Die Weber), The Beaver Coat (Der Biberpelz) and The Conflagration (Der rote Hahn).

Mother Helmbrecht Griselda! Griselda Well, what now? Mother Helmbrecht If I could do without help, I wouldn't need to call you, lass! What has come over you ? It was not your wont to be so ugly to your mother. Griselda One has cause enough to be ugly in this world. Mother Helmbrecht Why? Griselda Why? Because! That's a question many a one has asked. [She carries another load of clover into the siable.: Father Helmbrecht [Walks, with the scythe in his hand, up to the stable-door and talks into it to Griselda.] Well, so that's done. I've sharpened the scythe for you. To-morrow morning early, right early, lass, we'll cut the last aftermath down in the hollow. [griselda returns. Griselda To-morrow is Sunday. Father Helmbrecht The aftermath must be brought in, even if it be Sunday. Mother Helmbrecht Well, well, lass, What's all this ? You were not wont to be so set on going to church. Did the new chaplain turn your head? Father Helmbrecht It may be that a girl of your age has her own thoughts. Of what use is that? Nothing will help you but work. Griselda Surely, my hands are hard enough! Father Helmbrecht The hay must be brought in. Our Lord will be gracious to us. It's dripping now. Next week we may have snow. Our Lord knows better than you what is good for our beasts. [He goes into the house. A man in the garb of a day-labourer or forest guard looks over the fence. The Stranger [Who has flashing eyes under thick eye-brows.] What was the old woman scolding about again ? Griselda [Starts as she becomes aware of the stranger.] What? The Stranger I am asking whether the old -woman must always be scolding? Griselda [Perplexed.] Who are you? The Stranger You need not care about that anymore than ...
