About this audiobook

Die Erzählung handelt von dem Schriftsteller Jakob Lenz, der zu einem Bergdorf wandert und dort bei Pfarrer Oberlin Unterschlupf findet. Durch diese "Flucht" glaubt er seine Angstzustände überwinden zu können. Zunächst scheint dies auch möglich bis ihn sein alter Freund Kaufmann besucht. Kaufmann und Oberlin brechen zu einer Reise in die Schweiz auf. Lenz begleitet sie ein Stück. Auf dem Weg zurück trifft in einer Berghütte ein todkrankes Mädchen. Deren späterer Tod treibt ihn zum Wahnsinn, so dass er in eine Klinik nach Straßburg gebracht wird und dort nur noch "dahinlebt", da ihm sein Leben egal ist.

Georg Büchner

Karl Georg Büchner (17 October 1813 – 19 February 1837) was a German dramatist and writer of poetry and prose. He was also a revolutionary, a natural scientist, and the brother of physician and philosopher Ludwig Büchner. He was a major forerunner of the Expressionist school of playwriting of the early 20th century and his work voiced the disillusionment of many artists and intellectuals after World War I. He is now recognised as one of the outstanding figures in German dramatic literature and it is widely believed that, had it not been for his early death, he might have joined such central German literary figures as Johann Wolfgang von Goethe and Friedrich Schiller at the summit of their profession. His works include Woyzeck, left incomplete at the time of this death; his first play, Danton's Death, and the comedy Leonce and Lena.
