From ‘the Marquis Of O–‘, In Which A Woman Is Made Pregnant Without Her Knowledge, To The Vivid And Inexplicable Suffering Portrayed In ‘the Earthquake In Chile’, His Stories Are Those Of A Man Swimming Against The Tide Of The German Enlightenment, Unable To Believe In The Idealistic Humanism Of His Day, And Who Sees Human Nature As Irrational, Ambiguous And Baffling. It Is This Loss Of Faith, Together With His Vulnerability And Disequilibrium, His Pronounced Sense Of Evil, His Desperate Challenge To Established Values And Beliefs, That Carries Kleist More Forcefully Than Goethe Or Schiller Across The Gap Between The Eighteenth Century And Today. The Earthquake In Chile — The Marquise Of O– — Michael Kohlhaas — The Beggarwoman Of Locarno — St. Cecilia Or The Power Of Music — The Betrothal In Santo Domingo — The Foundling — The Duel. [by] Heinrich Von Kleist ; Translated [from The German] And With An Introduction By David Luke And Nigel Reeves.
