Spring awakening by Frank Wedekind( Book )
207 editions published between 1908 and 2017 in 7 languages and held by 2,158 libraries worldwide
"First performed under heavy censorship in Germany in 1906, Frank Wedekind's play Spring Awakening closed after one night in New York in 1917 amid public outrage and charges of obscenity. The play's content was radical indeed: teenage sex, suicide, abortion, masturbation, sadomasochism. But even more radical was the unsentimental and brutally authentic comedy with which Wedekind treated it. The story traces the dawning sexual awareness of four teenagers, Melchior, Moritz, Wendla, and Hansy, who, in their painfully funny contradictions - they are at once too innocent and not remotely innocent at all - remain fresh and unsettling even in our own sex-saturated culture. Thanks to the acclaimed novelist Jonathan Franzen, we now have a definitive new translation, one unique in capturing the bizarre comic spirit that animates every scene of this classic play."--Jacket

Unterm Novembermond auf dem Kirchhof, zwischen zwei Toten, zwei Opfern der Furcht vor Schande, bei diesem erstickenden Ende bleibt es in Wedekins Frühlings Erwachen nicht: es erscheint der "Vermummte Herr", der den Melchior zum Leben verführen will, und es gelingt ihm. Er ist das Leben mit all seinen abenteuerlichen Möglichkeiten, er sagt zu Melchior: "Du lernst micht nicht kennen, ohne dich mir anzuvertrauen", und er zieht Melchior von den Gräbern fort: wenigstens für Melchior erwacht der Lebensfrühling dann doch noch, wenn auch zwischen Toten, in einer Novembernacht

When Earth Spirit was premiered in Leipzig in 1898, Wedekind was vilified and persecuted for advocating unfeigned sexual pleasure and making his heroine a heartless whore. Death and Devil and Castle Wetterstein, the other plays that make up this volume, are essentially extensions of and complimentary to the Lulu tragedies
