Modern Drama as Crisis

The Case of Maurice Maeterlinck

Series:

Linn Bratt. Konrad

This book characterizes Maurice Maeterlinck as a «modern» writer by showing that his early rejection of language in favor of symbolic images and gestures to convey significant experience led to a methodological crisis by threatening silence and madness. This recognition caused the writer to turn back to language as a necessary, even if inadequate, means by which to carry out his artistic-philosophical quest.
Contents: Maeterlinck's rejection of language in favor of symbolic images led to a methodological crisis threatening silence and madness. This caused the writer to turn back to language as necessary, though inadequate.
