Fathers and Daughters - Patterns of Seduction in Tragedies by Gryphius, Lessing, Hebbel and Kroetz (Hardback)Ingrid Walsoe-Engel (author)
- Not available
In chapters dealing with Andreas Gryphius's Catharina von Georgien, Lessing's Miss Sara Sampson and Emilia Galotti, and Hebbel's Maria Magdalena, the author uncovers the archetypal patterns that always inform the dramatic conception of the daughter's seduction. Walsoe-Engel's analysis of Emilia Galotti is especially provocative, as she reveals the source of the much disputed inconsistency and ambiguity in the character of the title-figure. She provides a surprising answer to the age-old questions: 'Does Emilia love the Prince?' and 'Has Emilia been seduced?'
