Theatre, Drama and Audience in Goethe's Germany
Part of the Routledge Library Editions: Art and Culture in the Nineteenth Century series
First published in 1950. This present work examines the political, economic and social condition of Germany on literature, particular drama, in the late eighteenth- and early nineteenth-centuries.
The author explores drama both in its passive and active relations with the life of the time and with the theatre, the medium without the aid of which the possibilities of the drama as an art form remain only half realised.
This title will be of interest to students of literature, drama, and theatre studies.
