The Central Women Figures in Carl Zuckmayer's Dramas


Ausma Balinkin

For the first time this work traces the evolution of Carl Zuckmayer's major women characters from early spontaneous figures to increasingly complex and emancipated personalities. A close analysis of these women defines their importance as exponents of key concepts in Zuckmayer's world view expressed in his essays, autobiographies, and fiction.
