Ursprung des deutschen Trauerspiels

Benjamin, Walter.

benjamin_ursprungBased on analysis of the German tragic dramas of the 17th century, Benjamin delivers on the one hand the philosophy of history of the Baroque period, on the other hand the stringent demarcation of classic tragedy from tragedy as a unique literary form. The retrieval of the allegory – the centre of the book of tragic drama – has for the first time given an insight into long since unrecognised areas of poetic and theological language.

Ursprung des deutschen Trauerspiels (title of the English translation: The Origin of the German Tragic Drama) by Walter Benjamin has been translated into Romanian (excerpt) by Maria-Magdalena Anghelescu, George State and Lorin Ghiman under the title Originea dramei baroce germane, published by Tact publishing house, Cluj-Napoca.
