review Emilia Galotti Ein Trauerspiel in fünf Aufzügen

Dieses Werk ist Teil der Buchreihe TREDITION CLASSICS Der Verlag tredition aus Hamburg ver ffentlicht in der Buchreihe TREDITION CLASSICS Werke aus mehr als zwei Jahrtausenden Diese waren zu einem. While ever since I read Gotthold Ephraim Lessing's 1772 Emilia Galotti for an 18th century German literature course at Mount Allison University in 1988 I have considered this classic drama of the German Enlightenment of the Aufklärung considered to be a bürgerliches Trauerspiel a so called bourgeois tragedy very much a personal favourite I have recently come to the rather uncomfortable and even shocking realisation and conclusion that Emilia's death at the hands of her father although I do indeed acknowledge that she is the one who categorically demands that her father stab her to death is basically and for all intents and purposes an honour killing a salient and very much problematically uncomfortable piece of truth that definitely needs to be taken into consideration as well as an essential and necessary vehicle for both discussion and academic political debate and something that definitely should in no way ever now be ignored with regard to Emilia Galotti I mean come on we vociferously and yes with very much righteous and justifiable anger condemn so called honour killings in countries like Pakistan and Afghanistan killings slaughterings that I actually do NOT consider and never will consider honourable in ANY way but always rather the opposite and thus the very concept the very designation appellation I find anathema to the extreme And with this in mind and even though I still very much enjoy Emilia Galotti and will always appreciate the social criticisms presented especially Lessing's relentless critiue and condemnation of aristocratic decadence and entitlement the mere fact that Emilia not only ends up dead but that she sees her death her father stabbing her as she has demanded of him as somehow the only way to safeguard her chastity and virtue to keep her permanently removed from the lustful and scheming prince and by her death to protect and save both her and her family's honour this all now definitely leaves me rather horrified and yes most definitely aghast and with a very bitter taste in my mouth Still highly recommended but I do hope if or rather when Lessing's Emilia Galotti is now being read and discussed in German schoolrooms or is covered is analysed as collegeuniversity level reading material that the although likely painful distressing consideration that Emilia's death can be and in my opinion really should be considered an honour killing will be part of any and all debate andor discussion and will not ever be ignored be pushed away or worse to be deemed as an inappropriate insult to German literature Successful Intelligence yes with very much righteous and justifiable anger condemn so called honour killings in countries like Pakistan and Afghanistan killings slaughterings that I actually do NOT consider and never will consider honourable in ANY way but always rather the opposite and thus the very concept the very designation appellation I find anathema to the extreme And with this in mind and even though I still very much enjoy Emilia Galotti and will always appreciate the social criticisms presented especially Lessing's relentless critiue and condemnation of aristocratic decadence and entitlement the mere fact that Emilia not only ends up dead but that she sees her death her father stabbing her as she has demanded of him as somehow the only way to safeguard her chastity and virtue to keep her permanently removed from the lustful and scheming prince and by her death to protect and save both her and her family's honour this all now definitely leaves me rather horrified and The Language of Thorns (Grishaverse, yes most definitely aghast and with a very bitter taste in my mouth Still highly recommended but I do hope if or rather when Lessing's Emilia Galotti is now being read and discussed in German schoolrooms or is covered is analysed as collegeuniversity level reading material that the although likely painful distressing consideration that Emilia's death can be and in my opinion really should be considered an honour killing will be part of any and all debate andor discussion and will not ever be ignored be pushed away or worse to be deemed as an inappropriate insult to German literature

Gotthold Ephraim Lessing ☆ 5 review

Druckte Bücher zu verlegen und das weltweit Die Buchreihe dient zur Bewahrung der Literatur und Förderung der Kultur Sie trägt so dazu bei dass viele tausend Werke nicht in Vergessenheit geraten. 3 ☆ only because it's Lessing and I would feel bad to give it 2 Tbh I was expecting something better Emilia seems to be just a puppet and I really can't and won't comprehend her death situation in terms of honour It's like a patriarchal Trauerspiel that wants to be taken and read as an aufgeklärten masterpiece Sorry Lessing

    Honour killing posing as progessive Enlightenment drama Should be taught differently from the way I read it in school Where on Earth did my teacher find the courage to admire the sense of honour of Emilia's father?A good girl is a dead virgin

    We didn't actually read this in class although our exam is going to be all about it so I read it myself It was pleasantly surprised actually it's a pretty good book and not hard to read at all However the chronological order confused me likely because our language teacher only gave us random parts of the play the ending excluded

    This is a true classic by one of the greatest authors in all of German literature It is one of the first examples of a critical view of hereditary aristocracy and its ability to set itself above religion morals decency and ethics Perhaps the only difference between then and now is that “hereditary” has today been replaced with “monetary” The basic principle however is the same

    I had to read it for school what should I sayI normally don't like books in form of theater so I find the story dry at first But as I got myself into it on a long train drive I started to enjoy it The story line was sort of amusing and I already could tell myself how the story would endBut I woulnd't buy this book if it was my own desicion which is why I only gave three stars Though I'm glad to have read this one
