In "Hölderlin", Peter Weiss recreates the life and revolutionary times of one of Germany's greatest and most influential poets, Frederich Hölderlin. 'I wanted,' Weiss wrote, 'to describe something of the conflict that arises in a person who suffers to the point of madness from the injustices, the humiliations in his society, who completely supports the revolutionary upheavals, and yet does not find the praxis with which the misery can be remedied ...' As Robert Cohen notes in his introduction, 'As a theater of the senses, Hölderlin is a successor to Marat/Sade.'

The life of me upon my death among us : Seneca's repetitive suicides, his continuous dictation and the scribes who based the genre of historiography on his death by Ileana Drinovan( file )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
Seneca's tragic works are performative texts that bring to attention particular periods in theatre history that relied heavily on Seneca's writing. Works of Elizabethan writers, or plays from the early French baroque incorporated Seneca through translation, copying and emulation. This practice relates Seneca's own use of the ancient Greek and Roman texts as a pastiche method of composing his own tragedies. The historiography written around Seneca's death moment performs what Seneca's own letters and essays prescribe, in that writing the self, the passions and pleasures of acting on behalf of the self and the prolonged but determined path to death, all contribute to creating the Senecan self, on its daily quest to contain experience and past time within a complete daily composition. Seneca's relationship to space -- that of his private home dedicated to creation, that of the Domus Aurea dedicated to politics, and that internal mind space -- is at the center of the relationship between his tragedies and the geopolitics of the Roman Empire in the Silver Age. Written for the stage while mimicking the stage of politics, the tragedies are innovative compositions in replicating and improving their Greek ideal predecessors
