Andreas Gryphius is among the best-studied authors of the 17th century, yet until now, there has been no comprehensive, up-to-date presentation of his life and work. The handbook seeks to fill this gap. It includes chapters on individual texts and covers a number of interpretative approaches. It also presents an overview of the current state of research and an expanded set of references, including previously neglected textual corpora.
