This parallel text
edition of J.M.R. Lenz's Anmerkungen übers Theater enables English
readers for the first time to access a significant dramaturgical document of
the late eighteenth-century German Sturm und Drang movement, which was
foundational to the classical-romantic period of German literature and
ultimately influenced later writers of realism. Together with previously
translated contemporary writings such as those of Herder and Goethe, this
edition will enable students, scholars and general readers, regardless of
the level of their knowledge of the language, to deepen their understanding
of an important aspect of German literature and of European theatrical
history in general.
