Spring awakening by Frank Wedekind( Book )

459 editions published between 1891 and 2017 in 8 languages and held by 2,788 WorldCat member 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

Spring awakening by Frank Wedekind( Book )

7 editions published between 1995 and 2002 in English and held by 402 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
