Beschreibung

Written in a radical avant-gardist style, comparable to Brecht's theatre, Lasker-Schüler's plays (Die Wupper, 1909; Arthur Aronymus und seine Väter, 1932; IchundIch, 1937-1941) are critical performances of gender conflicts, militarism, and anti-Semitism. The present study is the first to analyze her dramatic OEuvre in it's entirety.

Inca M. Rumold is Associate Professor of German, Spanish, and Comparative Literture. She edited and introduced the first translation of Lasker-Schüers Plays into English (2005).
