Aims and Scope
This book examines Heinrich von Kleist’s relationships to the media as author, journalist, and correspondent. His literary works were a sensitive reflection of the media landscape of his times, and his publication projects, the best known of which was the Berliner Abendblätter, may be seen as an experiment to develop something akin to “social media,” in which the audience actively collaborated in the media production.
