    Aims and Scope

    Against the backdrop of a classic plot, Ödön von Horváth’s comedy Figaro Gets a Divorce (written between 1934 and 1936) treats highly explosive topics of his time such as revolution and emigration. This text edition documents the complete creation process of the play, which is closely interwoven with the creation process of Don Juan Comes Back from the War. The differences between the “original version” in 13 scenes and the final version in 9 scenes show exemplarily how difficult it was for Horváth to comment on the current political developments directly.
