This is the first major study of Buchner in English for nearly twenty years, and it includes radically new readings of Dantons Tod, Leonce und Lena, and Woyzeck. Showing these works in a fresh perspective, John Reddick provocatively argues that Buchner was aesthetically so far ahead of his time mainly because he was seriously behind the times in his essentially idealist premisses and aspirations. Beyond any particular interpretation, however, Reddick seeks above all to make the reader more fully alive to the sheer vitality and richness of Buchner's extraordinary oeuvre.
