Overview

Bernd Heinrich Wilhelm von Kleist (1777-1811) war ein deutscher Dramatiker, Erzähler, Lyriker, Publizist und Patriot. Kleist begann 1799 in Frankfurt neben Mathematik als Hauptfach Physik, Kulturgeschichte, Latein und Kameralwissenschaften zu studieren. Für ihn waren die Naturwissenschaften im Sinne der Aufklärung ein objektives Mittel, sich selbst, die Gesellschaft und die Welt zu erkennen und zu verbessern. Kleist war ein Meister in der Kunst der Erzählung. Michael Kohlhaas (1808) gilt als eine der wichtigsten deutschsprachigen Erzählungen ihrer Zeit. Kleist wurde gleichermaßen als verkannter Vorbote der literarischen Moderne wie auch als bedeutender Streiter im Sinne der nationalistischen und chauvinistischen Strömungen des Deutschen Kaiserreichs gedeutet. Bekannt ist er vor allem für das "historische Ritterschauspiel" Das Käthchen von Heilbronn (1808), seine Lustspiele Der Zerbrochne Krug (Uraufführung 1808), Amphitryon (1807) und das Trauerspiel Penthesilea (1808). Weitere Werke des Autors sind: Katechismus der Deutschen (1809), Das Bettelweib von Locarno (1810) und Prinz Friedrich von Homburg (Uraufführung 1821).

    Not the translation

    The listing notes that this is the English translation by Agee; however, the text is, in fact, in German. If you cannot read German, do not purchase the eBook.
