About this audiobook

Büchner schildert in dieser Erzählung, wie der deutsche Schriftsteller Jakob Lenz dem Wahnsinn verfällt.Vor dem abwechselnd düsteren und grellen Hintergrund der elsässischen Landschaft im Winter,tritt die erschütternde Exaktheit in der Schilderung der unausweichlichen Leidensgewalt der Schizophreniedurch die geradezu überwältigende Einfühlungskraft des Autors umso eindrucksvoller hervor.

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.
