Spring awakening by Frank Wedekind ( Book )
53 editions published between 1969 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 1,028 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This new version of Frank Wedekind's extraordinary play Spring Awakening has been specially commissioned by the Royal Shakespeare Company. The themes it addresses and the sheer energy of the writing make this masterpiece of German symbolism startlingly relevant today. With its scenes of pubescent angst, sexual outspokenness, rape and homosexuality, the play still, more than one hundred years after it was first staged, has the power to shock. Ted Hughes's version lends the dialogue a particularly modern terseness and bite, drawing out all the erotic energy of the original

"First performed under heavy censorship in Germany in 1906, Frank Wedekind's play 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." -- publisher's web site

The young Moritz, terrorized by the world around him, and especially by his teachers, shoots himself. The ending seems likely to be the suicide of Moritz's friend, Melchior, but in a confrontation with a mysterious stranger (the famous Masked Man) he finally manages to shed his illusions and face the consequences
