Michael Kohlhaas by Heinrich von Kleist( Book )
657 editions published between 1811 and 2016 in 22 languages and held by 2,045 libraries worldwide
"You can send me to the scaffold, but I can make you suffer, and I mean to." Based on actual historic events, this thrilling saga of violence and retribution bridged the gap between medieval and modern literature, and speaks so profoundly to the contemporary spirit that it has been the basis of numerous plays, movies, and novels. It has become, in fact, a classic tale: that of the honorable man forced to take the law into his own hands. In this incendiary prototype, a minor tax dispute intensifies explosively, until the eponymous hero finds the forces of an entire kingdom, and even the great Martin Luther, gathered against him. But soon even Luther comes to echo the growing army of peasants asking, 'Isnt' Kohlhaas right?'

Über das Marionettentheater : Aufsätze und Anekdoten by Heinrich von Kleist( Book )
142 editions published between 1920 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 521 libraries worldwide
Mit "Über das Marionettentheater" veröffentlichen wir den zweiten bekannteren Aufsatz aus den ästhetischen und philosophischen Schriften Kleists. Ebenso unterhaltsam wie tiefsinnig gibt Kleist den Dialog des Ich-Erzählers mit einem bekannten Tänzer seiner Zeit wieder, dessen Bewunderung für das Marionettentheater ihn zunächst sehr verwundert. Die folgenden Betrachtungen über Natürlichkeit und Künstlichkeit, Geziertheit und Unschuld in der Kunst bleiben auch heute lesens- und hörenswert. Auch wenn wir heute vielleicht von Echtheit und Unechtheit sprechen würden, Kleists Überlegungen verführen auch heute noch zum mit- und nachdenken
Erzählungen by Heinrich von von Kleist( Book )
127 editions published between 1810 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 512 libraries worldwide
Trascurato dai suoi contemporanei, Kleist è considerato da tempo una delle più originali personalità dell'epoca romantica, che da un lato egli rappresenta tipicamente e dall'altro contraddice e supera. Nei suoi personaggi si scatenano le stesse potenze irrazionali che agitarono ed esaltarono la sua esistenza. In una prosa altamente drammatica, quasi scolpita in un rilievo bronzeo, Kleist dà vita a personaggi e situazioni impregnati di patologica sofferenza, di titanica ribellione, di lotta contro un destino sentito e vissuto come assurdo
The Kleist variations : three plays by Eric Bentley( Book )
6 editions published between 1982 and 2005 in English and held by 430 libraries worldwide
"These plays by Eric Bentley - Concord, The Fall of the Amazons, and Wannsee - are variations on plays by Heinrich von Kleist. Concord, which depicts discord in Concord, Massachusetts, around the year 1800, is a variation on The Broken Jug. The Fall of the Amazons, in which the Greek hero Achilles is slain by an Amazon queen, is a variation on the play Penthesilea. Kleist rejected the older version of the story in which Achilles killed her. Kleist's version receives another twist from Bentley. Wannsee, the third play in The Kleist Variations (and also the lake on whose shores Kleist committed suicide), is a variation of Cathy of Heilbronn
Michael Kohlhaas by Arnaud Des Pallières( visu )
20 editions published between 1969 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 362 libraries worldwide
With the age of feudalism in decline, Europe rests at a tense crossroads between the old world and the new. Respected, well-to-do horse merchant Michael Kohlhaas is a loving husband and family man leading a peaceful existence, until a ruthless nobleman steals his horses, setting off a chain of irreversible events. Kohlhaas resorts to extremes after these crimes destroy his livelihood and trust in the law, igniting a rampage through the countryside in his quest for justice
