Michael Kohlhaas by Heinrich von Kleist( )

1 edition published in 2009 in German and held by 0 WorldCat member 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?'

Heinrich von Kleist, geboren am 18.10.1777 in Frankfurt/Oder. 1792 trat er in das Potsdamer Garderegiment ein und schied 1799 freiwillig aus dem Dienst aus. Dann studierte er Philosophie, Physik, Mathematik und Staatswissenschaft in Frankfurt/O. (1799/1800). 1804 trat er in den preußischen Staatsdienst ein. 1807-1809 war er in Dresden, wo er mit A. Müller den "Phöbus" herausgab. 1810 gab er mit A. Müller die "Berliner Abendblätter" heraus, die schon kurz darauf wegen Zensurschwierigkeiten eingestellt werden mußten. Ohne literarischen Erfolg, an menschlichen Bindungen zweifelnd und über die politische Lage verzweifelt, nahm er sich gemeinsam mit der unheilbar kranken Henriette Vogel am Wannsee das Leben. Kleist starb am 21.11.1811
