Autorentext

The Author: Calvin N. Jones received his B.A. degree from Davidson College in 1969 and his Ph.D. degree from the University of North Carolina in 1976. He is currently an associate professor of German at the University of South Alabama. He has published in numerous journals on the Volksstücke of Nestroy, Raimund, Anzengruber, Thoma, Horváth, and Soyfer, as well as on Handke, Broch, Kirsch, and Lasker-Schüler. He has been the recipient of grants from the Fulbright Commission, the Goethe-Institut, and the DAAD.



Klappentext

This examination of the German Volksstück from its literary beginning through the present offers close readings of representative plays by Raimund, Nestroy, Anzengruber, Thoma, Fleißer, Horváth, Brecht, and Kroetz. The theoretical approach, developed in the introduction, employs the thought of Theodor Adorno and Ernst Bloch to analyze the varying formal means attempted by authors in different historical situations to express a negation of the status quo while at the same time imaging a utopian solution for the Volk. This study's detailed discussion of individual plays should be of use to Germanists, but its method and its overview of the genre should make it of interest to the non-specialist as well.
