[Hölderlin and the Theater: Production, Reception, Transformation]

This book examines Hölderlin’s The Death of Empedocles and his translation of Sophocles’ Oedipus and Antigone, the reception of their productions, and changes in approach to his work in drama and theater through the present. The first comprehensive reconstruction of his legacy, the study switches between general overview and specific analyses of F. Brentano, F. Nietzsche, B. Brecht, H. Müller, P. Weiss, K.M. Grüber, and E. Jelinek.
