I did enjoy it immensely. Sosias was definitely my favourite. Oct 28, Evan rated it really liked it Shelves: From the opening line, “who’s there? As with Broken Jug, Kleist approaches comedy here for it’s most koeist qualities, a vision of terror beneath the ordinary, the collapse of self-identity and madness that follows.
Other than some business with the servant Sosias, there’s not much humor in this comedy. Oct 14, Feyza rated it liked it Shelves: Oct ampbitryon, Bine rated it it was ok. In diesem Fall kamen wohl ziemlich viele Komponenten zusammen, die mir das Buch unsympathisch gemacht haben wenn man das so nennen darf, jedenfalls habe ich es nur ungern in die Hand genommen.
Wenn ihr mal einen Kleist gelesen habt, wisst ihr, was ich meine. Ich kann nicht genau sagen, warum, aber er war mir bei Kleist sehr viel sympathischer.
Alkmene dagegen habe ich bei Kleist nicht so ampyitryon verstanden. Sie ist schon ein kompliziertes Weibsbild. Dec 17, Dewey rated it really liked it. Through the two different “Amphitryons” Kleist is able to explore various parts of human nature with prose that I found a bit flowery, the only reason I subtract a star from this otherwise great work based in Greek mythology and something ampihtryon affects Kleists’ other play I’ve read, the Broken Jug, albeit to a lesser extent such as romance vs.
Kleist makes much of this also depend on Alcmene’s view of her husbands strange behavior and shows that we, in our humanity, will see what we want to see in our partners at times.
Aside from the aforementioned flowery language, great play. This ranks in my opinion as one of Kleists’ best works and is a must for Greek mythology lovers.
