Il viaggio della Penthesilea di Heinrich von Kleist da Dresda a Weimar

Grazia Pulvirenti, Renata Gambino, Federica Claudia Abramo


In the metaphorical journey undertaken by Kleist’s drama Penthesilea from Dresden to Weimar and in the following conflict between Goethe and Kleist it is more at stake than just the contrast between Classicism and Romantics. The problem emerging from this study is the different way to reflect about actuality and politics, the opposite conception of literature with regard to the French Revolution and particularly to Napoleon’s usurpation and the political opposition lead by Queen Louise, who appears under the Greek drapery as the real hero of Kleist’s drama.
