Kurt Lothar Tank’s highly circulated monograph on Gerhart Hauptmann (Rowohlt 1959) is based on his two essays from 1942, both marked ideologically by the spirit of the time. By their emphasis on spatial pattern, they - just like his later biography - correspond with Otto Schönstein’s stereoscopic publications, with which Tank had been involved since 1935. Hauptmann, on his part, objected resolutely to stereoscopy.
