Important for Sorge and for many other expressionist playwrights was the influence of Strindberg. The cause of its sorrow—usually specified as the social organization—has to be removed or eliminated before happiness can be found. For it is not a matter of artistic accomplishment, but of the will … This art will blow apart the aesthetic, if one conceives of the aesthetic as the pleasurable formation of the given …43. See Manifeste und Dokumente, 326-332. It involves a massive re-coding of what had previously been accepted as “nature”: the world is now re-interpreted and re-constituted in terms of a new discourse which liberates both the object and its perception from the conditions pertaining to the given. HEROES The real heroes of minstrelsy have been ideal, even when the names of actual … (Zürich, 1951), p. 155. Frankfurt: Suhrkamp, 1963. Grundbegriffe der Poetik, 2nd ed. 4. It is fervour which is his secret and his power.’9 The rejection of stultifying intellectualism, the praise of Van Gogh and Dostoevsky, the worship of energy and the use of images derived from Also sprach Zarathustra display obvious expressionist features. Sorge's fusion of visionary fervour and ruthless idealism is reminiscent of the work of Ludwig Derleth. According to Ogburn's famous thesis, a “cultural lag occurs when one of two parts of culture which are correlated changes before or in greater degree than the other part does …” See William F. Ogburn, “Cultural Lag as Theory” (1957) On Culture and Social Change (Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 1964), 86. J. H. Reid, ‘The Halves and the Whole: Another look at Ernst Barlach's Der arme Vetter, The Modern Language Review, LXXII, 1977, p. 626. ], The heterogeneous and frequently vague nature of the many manifestoes and programmatic statements produced by the numerous writers of the expressionist movement has made it a notoriously difficult phenomenon to pin down to any clear ideological line.1 The great variety of political and religious groupings which many of its prominent associates went on to join after its official demise, such as the various socialist and communist factions, the National-Socialists, Christians and radical Zionists, may be an indication that a breadth of opinion already existed within its ranks which made the attempt at anything more than a broad and very fleeting affiliation of like-minded thinkers virtually impossible.2, The question of expressionism's impact as a revolutionary event in a social and ideological sense is made even more difficult to answer by the fact that any genuinely radical political agendas proposed in the literary or programmatic writings of the movement are invariably obscured or “overdetermined” by factors apparently extraneous to the issues at stake. This is a widespread practice within the movement, even embracing the sober poetics of Franz Kafka and his view that the text should serve as an axe “for the frozen sea within us” provoking and forcing the reader out of conventional attitudes and modes of behaviour.59, More than simply shocking the burgher (“épater le bourgeois”), such strategies as this “schaukeln” destabilize the social and discursive conventions by which he is protected. Alfred Lichtenstein writes: Ernst Blass describes another conventionalized topos, the moon, as like “a slime / On an enormous velour of the falling night. Thus Rudolf Leonhard in 1916 published an essay Vom Pathos; Franz Werfel's first collection of poetry Der Weltfreund includes a poem entitled An mein Pathos; the Neue Club established in the year 1911 the Neopathetische Cabaret in which a new pathos was proclaimed; and in 1913 Paul Zech and others started publishing a periodical called Das Neue Pathos, for which Stefan Zweig wrote a declaration of editorial principles under the same title. Eine tausendjährige Kultur bricht zusammen. “Der Irre.” Rpt. We remember that John Willett's book on Expressionism had as its cover a detail from Matthias Grünewald's Crucifixion:3 the twisted agony of distortion and the intensity of religious expressiveness are here an appropriate emblem. …”) See “Schöpferische Konfession” Gesammelte Werke, vol. The apparent arbitrariness of the epithet is crucial. Expressionismus. In the case of Trakl's poetry the choice of color or metaphor may be either completely contingent, or—as in the case of an important predecessor in the development of expressionist aesthetics, namely van Gogh—highly personal.48 But in either case the function is the same, as we shall see. Pathos has the power to evoke many emotions in a reader or audience of a literary work. These were expounded by Erwin Loewenson, on the occasion of the first performance of the Neopathetische Cabaret, in a manifesto which has remained unpublished; however, its substance can be deduced from later essays by its author.17. Expressionism Reconsidered. In den Wogen / Die Schiffe hängen modernd und verdrossen …” Heym, “Umbra Vitae,” MHD, 39. The “pathetic” artist has to convey his own dynamic impulse to his public, if ever the antithesis is to be resolved—and those whose resistance cannot be turned into cooperation through rhetorical persuasion must be destroyed so as not to endanger progress. Vietta, Silvio, and Hans-Georg Kemper. Expressionism underwent a development whose early phases are represented by the views on this subject prevailing in the Neue Club. Barlach had settled in the small town of Güstrow in Mecklenburg in 1910. The question of political engagement is often parried in the programmatic statements, frequently in a manner which does not so much sidestep a clear ideological commitment, as refuse to acknowledge the dichotomy between art and reality implied by such questions. To take some brief examples from the poetry of Lichtenstein: “The sky is grey wrapping paper / Onto which the sun is glued—a butter stain”44; or “The sun, a buttercup, balances / On a smokestack, its thin stalk.”45. Ed. G. B. Pickar and K. E. Webb (Munich: Fink, 1979), 8. The given antithesis is, however, not going to disappear in a Hegelian synthesis of the opposing poles, but in the complete ascendancy of one pole over the other. Wolfgang. The poet’s passion for his loved one, that he was all cardinal directions and days and times, followed by the poet’s desperation to remove elements of nature, inspires sympathetic mourning in readers. A great gulf emerges between ‘Here’ and ‘the Beyond’; and the belief that, to quote Georg Kaiser, ‘Ultimate value lies beyond human affairs’6 becomes part of the stock-in-trade of many dramatists of this time. 37-66. 7 Expressionismus. For besides fulfilling the intellectual's need to overcome the social and spiritual isolation through engagement within the community,3 the notion of a revolution often appears to offer the possibility merely of curing the self vicariously through the attempt to heal the world.4 Alternatively, the ideal of revolution frequently seems to have been embraced as part of a more general desire for spiritual renewal or even as a criminal and destructive act offering a stimulating experiential “rush” or “Lebenssteigerung.”5, It is undeniable of course that the expressionist avant-garde's “programmatic” texts present a powerful criticism of the ideological and institutional foundations of Wilhelmine bourgeois society and its culture of affirmation. Instead, as we have seen, the new generation of expressionist writers around 1910 adopts certain practices—for example the re-coding of nature and of the body, the subversion of traditional topoi, or the reversal of conventional hierarchies of value (such as placing the sublime over the marginal, the natural over the artificial)—which “re-write” the world as a construction of human consciousness, thereby liberating it from inherited values and perceptions. Lichtenstein, Alfred. Apart from him and his fellow members of the early and short-lived Neue Club, however, the expressionists, in agreement with the orthodox “pathetic” attitude on this point, chose to concentrate on stirring the passions of their public. This reciprocal exchange of feeling enhances the connection between the poet and reader through pathos. Significantly, the title of the latter poem, “Ironic Landscape” (“Ironische Landschaft”) points to the expressionist avant-garde's oppositional strategy in creating such pointedly desublimated and de-aestheticized tropes. Programme. As well as if a promontory were. Would they survive the trauma of 1933 to greet the ‘1000-year Reich’ as the new Millennium? Festschrift für Hermann Kunisch. Ball, Hugo. The German people, undermined by bolshevism and international Jewry, will nevertheless be saved: the unknown Soldier rises from his grave, a crown of barbed wire upon his head. In her memoir, Angelou focuses on the emotional events of her life from early childhood through adolescence. 183, 67, 96; Fritz Martini, Deutsche Literaturgeschichte, p. 515; Friedmann and Mann, p. 96. Old Testament themes and figures are found in Friedrich Wolf, Arno Nadel and Stefan Zweig—the year 1917 saw Wolf's The Lion of God, Nadel's Adam and Stefan Zweig's Jeremias: A Dramatic Poem in Nine Scenes. “Die Fahrt nach der Irrenanstalt I.” Lyrik des Expressionismus. For their function is not the banishment of chaos. “Gott ist tot. The framework in which man's freedom as a rational being manifested itself was the existing discrepancy between reality and ideal, the static presentation of which thus formed an essential part of pathos in Schiller's sense. See Bloch, “Diskussionen über Expressionismus,” Expressionismusdebatte, 187. The comparison with the strategies of the naturalist movement is again instructive in this respect. These forms are pathos, logos, and ethos. Ein historischer Überblick. J. M. Ritchie has well described the première at the time of the Berlin Olympic Games.12 To return to Euringer: his Totentanz, 1934, harks back to the ‘Walpurgisnacht’ scene of Goethe's Faust in the rhythmical, dynamic alternation of pithy stichomythia: it describes the cleansing of ‘Nihilists’, ‘Pacifists’, ‘Pimps’, ‘Bank robbers’ from the temple of life, and the triumph of Nordic man. It allows the possibility of seeing through ideologies, the reified forms of thought which have been established as objective truths (“Convictions [have become] prejudices”), and which have been set up as the foundations of meaning: “the principles of logic, of centrality, unity and reason are revealed as the postulates of a domineering theology” says Ball later in the text.11, The prevalence in this period of such iconoclastic and revolutionary sentiments suggests that towards the end of the nineteenth century the pervasive experience of crisis, moral chaos and discontinuity documented here by Ball emerges as the symptom of a deeper and fundamental epistemological fracture. As a matter of rhetorical persuasion, it is important for these forms (or “appeals”) to be balanced. A mobile army of metaphors, metonymies, anthropomorphisms, in short the sum of human relations.”13 This semantic activity has the primary function then of creating a set of representational codes and ideological formations which present reality as an eminently discursive construction. With this conclusion, the aim of defining the structural pattern of expressionist literature in terms derived from the theory of poetics has been achieved. It will be my intention to look at certain expressionist plays in an attempt to understand the predilection of authors commonly accepted as having been Expressionists at some time in their lives for topoi, symbols, figures and situations which have a religious dimension: whatever else Expressionism was, it was not such a radical break with the past as has hitherto been suggested, and it frequently betrays symbolist, neo-romantic or indeed romantic elements. In a letter to his brother Theo of August 1888, Vincent van Gogh writes, “instead of trying to produce exactly what I have before my eyes, I use color more arbitrarily so as to express myself more forcefully.” The Letters of Vincent van Gogh (New York, 1963), 276. Frankfurt-on-Maine: Fischer, 1975. ©2021, Inc. All Rights Reserved. The Clearly this position can no longer be upheld against the historical breakdown in discursive fictions of order, and such uncomplicated attitudes towards representation in the previous generation give way to a profound skepticism with regard to mimesis amongst the expressionists. It is clear that through this constant revolutionary agitation and subversion a particular form of epistemological and ideological critique emerges which is characteristic of expressionism as an avant-garde movement. “Die weltanschaulichen Grundlagen des Avantgardeismus.” Werke IV. Denn es geht nicht um die Kunstfertigkeit, sondern um den Willen … Diese Kunst wird allenthalben das Ästhetische zersprengen, wenn man das Ästhetische als wohlgefällige Formung des Gegebenen auffaßt.” Kurt Pinthus, “Rede für die Zukunft” Die Erhebung (1919), 420. ———. Johst had been very much of his time with his expressionist plays The Youthful One: An ecstatic Scenario of 1916 and the Grabbe play The Lonely One: The fall of a Man of the following year. The revolutionary function of this iconoclasm lies also in its gesture of clearing the way for a radical reinterpretation of nature. Menschheitsdämmerung. It may also be traced, as we have seen in chapter one, in the many Expressionist narratives and dramas whose figures become increasingly free of the representational concerns of identity, plot and causality, and who tend instead to become free-floating symbols or “objective correlatives” (Sokel) rather than “realistic” characters. Thus the violent discrepancy created by the shocking color or epithet emphasizes the provisional nature of the particular concretization of “das Wesen” which has emerged, insisting on the impossibility of final closure. But there is a further important dimension to this avant-garde assault on aesthetic convention. Kafka, Franz. It is symptomatic that Kurt Hiller in the opening address of the Neopathetische Cabaret attacked the “geschmähte Schillerische” pathos.7. Gesammelte Werke. David Sturzaker and Cush Jumbo as Nora Helmer in A Doll's House at the Royal Exchange in Manchester. From a socio-historical perspective one might advance the general proposition that new literary movements are frequently subject to a kind of “cultural lag” (Ogburn) in their response to a changed social and ideological situation.54 They often display a discrepancy between the “functional transformation” (‘Funktionswandel”), that is, the new critical functions accruing to their texts as they negotiate their response to the changed set of conditions and problematics pertaining to a new historical period, and the “stylistic transformations” (“Stilwandel”) or stylistic means developed to mediate the innovation and so account formally for this socio-historical change. The subversion of those traditional “transcendental signifieds,” such as God (whose heaven is now repeatedly described as “empty”)37 and the subject (now a “dissociated” entity, a “fragmented” corpse) is accomplished by their being replaced by autonomous and indeterminate signifiers. Rubiner had died in 1920; Friedrich Wolf survived the Third Reich and returned to East Germany to work in the theatre before his death in 1953. Pathos, Greek for “suffering” or “experience,” originated as a conceptual mode of persuasion with the Greek philosopher, Aristotle. Manifeste und Dokumente. Loewenson's ideas, which represented those of the majority of the Neue Club members, had been substantially influenced by the impression which the personality and physical appearance of Georg Heym had made on them. It is not a form of balm, but rather of agitation …” (“Die Kunst ist nicht Flucht aus der Wirklichkeit,—sondern Flucht in die Wirklichkeit des Geistes. Pinthus, Kurt, ed. III, 314]. 163-73. The younger intellectuals, from whom the expressionists were recruited, had therewith inevitably become impervious to the idealistic side of the moral-ethical pathos concept. The characters of Euringer's play include ‘the Unknown Soldier’, ‘Worker’, ‘Hag’, ‘War Invalid’, ‘Girl’, ‘Children’ and ‘Mother’. The international, left-wing aspects of Expressionism belong, it seems, in a different category altogether. Neuwied: Luchterhand, 1971. Rather, as with Peter Bürger's category of the montage or non-organic work, it is paradoxically through the distortions, through the pointed constructedness and artificiality of the image that this impulse towards change comes to the fore. 140. On Culture and Social Change. Eine Welt brach zusammen … Religion, Wissenschaft, Moral—Phänomene, die aus Angstzuständen primitiver Völker entstanden sind. Kaiser is not alone here—the work of Pär Lagerkvist (The Difficult Hour, 1918, and The Secret of Heaven, 1919) shares a kindred preoccupation. “Nebel.” Rpt. / Und heute schreit man laut auf allen Gassen: / nein, sie ist da, ist harte Wirklichkeit …” Gustav Sack, “Die Welt,” Lyrik des Expressionismus (Tübingen, 1976), 203. Cambridge, England: Cambridge University Press, 1998. Max Brod. Secondly, since all points of orientation are seen simply as discursive fictions which have merely been postulated, not consolidated, all values appear as relative—“There is no perspective left in the moral world. Müller, Robert. Thus Rudolf Leonhard in 1916 published an essay Vom Pathos; ... David Fanning, and Douglas Jarman, pp. It should hire revolutionaries, the ambiguous ones, who rebel despairingly against all sides.”41. Munich: Fink, 1979. Now this same foregrounding of fictionality through the violence of an imposed image may be seen again in the rather contorted and daring comparisons of which the expressionist poets were fond. It is an unnecessary insult. Houston German Studies Vol. Anz and Stark, Manifeste und Dokumente. In this particular passage from her memoir, Angelou appeals to the reader’s feelings of shame, empathy, and fear by describing her experience and how she felt as a Black girl growing up in the South. They, by contrast, reject any naive mimetic stance which would re-present its object by attempting to make the literary discourse mediating it disappear. ———. Rpt. Heirs to the Romantics the Expressionists may be, not necessarily neurotic and terminally violent as a recent study has argued,2 but certainly intense, subjective and fervent. Bloch, Ernst. Cf. Dresden: Verlag der Kunst, 1956. We have mentioned Wagner; Nietzsche is of equal importance here. A child and a man were one day walking on the seashore when the child found a little shell and held it to his ear. For example by contrast with the solidity of naturalist verisimilitude, what the expressionist text attempts to do is to undermine appearances in order firstly to shock the audience and undermine both the inherent conservatism and the sense of reassurance it derives from recognizing the familiar, and secondly to destroy the audience's comforting illusion of having conceptually mastered or “fixed” reality. Halbband, (Leipzig: Wolff, 1919). 73. Though Aristotle defined pathos as a rhetorical technique for persuasion, literary writers rely on pathos as well to evoke emotion and understanding in readers. And it is worthy of notice that these are almost the only arguments which can be heard in explanation of the similar … Wherever possible I have used the translation (hereafter MHD-DH) Menschheitsdämmerung: Dawn of Humanity. / Und rings sind Felder, grüne Wiesenhügel—/ Friedliche Welt, du große Mausefalle.

Finally, if expressionism is to be seen primarily as a conceptual art full of anthropomorphosed concepts and concretized ideas—in Jost Hermand's words, as a “poetic formulation of definitions” of a “purely epistemological kind” (“definitorische Dichtung,” “rein erkenntnismäßiger Natur”)56—then it must be conceded that its revolutionary function is of the same order: it operates on the theoretical level of an ideological and epistemological rethinking, in other words as a form of “Ideologie-” and “Erkenntniskritik” which challenges not only conventional views of the world but also the orienting concepts which support them, in order to reveal their fictionality, their arbitrary nature, and thus their fundamental susceptibility to change. I'm not sure if it's that important that a one-off crossword puzzle mentioned the series. 515-518. Die Intensität macht ihren Wert aus. In Reinhard Sorge's The Beggar, a play written in 1910 and performed some five years later, a discussion between various literati in the obligatory coffee-house turns upon a recent dramatic work which is regarded as trivial, typical of an age whose writers lack, ‘the intense confirmation from the Beyond’ and ‘the Spiritual’; the third critic puts forward the following categorical statement: ‘We are waiting for someone to interpret our destiny anew—this is a dramatist whom I would call truly great. Diether Schmidt. Like fellow poet Gottfried Benn, Döblin brought his professional expertise in medicine to bear on his literary projects. It is in breaking decisively with these old ways of seeing, that it rebels against the real. On April 19th the Sixth Massachusetts regiment, which had been summoned to the defence of the national capital, was attacked, en route, in the streets of Baltimore. Sitzt als letzter Gesellschafter / Uns das Nichts gegenüber.” Brecht,“Der Nachgeborene,” Lyrik des Expressionismus, 249. Ethos is an appeal of ethics. Anz, Thomas, and Michael Stark, eds. Expressionism may be defined as the revolt of the spirit against reality. "Despite giving the Edifying Ed-Ventures DVD a negative review..." Why did he give the DVD a negative review, yet praise the series? …” Van Hoddis, “Weltende,” MHD, 39. For example, in his poem “No Man Is an Island,” John Donne appeals to the reader’s emotions of acceptance, belonging, and empathy: No man is an island, Entire of itself, Every man is a piece of the continent, A part of the main. It is very much removed from our own time which is attracted above all by the (frequently aberrant) sexual daring of much expressionist writing, also by the cult of violence in many of the plays. No other expressionist appears to conform to them either. “Landschaft.” Lyrik des Expressionismus. “er kennt kein System für Lebendes, Chaos ist ihm willkommen als Freund, weil er die Ordnung in seiner Seele trägt.” Richard Huelsenbeck, “Der neue Mensch,” Neue Jugend 1 (May 23, 1917), 2-3. Thus the criterion of expressionist style inevitably lacks more specific factors than those contained in the notions of antithesis, dynamism, and rhetoric, in the meaning of these terms developed in the preceding pages. The expressionist style is antithetic, dynamic, and rhetorical. Menschheitsdämmerung. Thirdly, and perhaps most importantly, besides allowing the presented image to be understood thus as one of the many “manifestations of the concept ‘horse’,”49 it is as if the deliberate “distortion,” the contingency of the choice of color or epithet, serves as the attempt to place this particular manifestation “under erasure” (Derrida), or as if the artist were both using and then crossing through a term which could only be employed with caution. R. Sorge, Werke in 3 Bänden, Nuremberg, 1964, II, p. 23. Vol. 467-499. I (Leipzig, 1930), p. 16. ———. XIII in “die mainzer reihe” (Neuwied, 1960), p. 143. SOURCE: Krispyn, Egbert. It is worth noting for example that the dadaist manifestations and “happenings” which Bürger cites as typically avant-gardistic forms (through which art is “confronted” directly with life and with the shocked reactions of the audience) took as their precedent the expressionists' provocative and often shocking “literary cabarets,” in which their fantastic stories, dissonant poetry, and often grotesque one-act plays were read or performed. He was not an avid theatre-goer but had read his Strindberg and greatly admired Hauptmann's ‘Traumdichtung’, Little Hannah's Ascension (he had come across a performance, quite by chance, in the Residenz Theater in Dresden in 1894). “Und aller Himmel Höfe sind verschlossen.” Heym, “Umbra Vitae,” MHD, 39. In addition to his ethical appeals, Reagan also makes several appeals to pathos. “Nachmittag, Felder und Fabrik.” Lyrik des Expressionismus. “Rede für die Zukunft.” Die Erhebung. With hindsight it may appear that it was naturalism which was a jejune impasse: with its insistence upon versimilitude, plausibility and tactile impressionism it could not for long satisfy those who sought to portray transcendental realities, the inner life, the visionary and the ecstatic. 680-683. “Das Sinnenwesen muss tief und heftig leiden; Pathos muss da sein, damit das Vernunftwesen seine Unabhängigkeit kundtun und sich handelnd darstellen könne.”5. Even before Heym joined their society, around New Year, 1910, they had subscribed to a vitalistic-metaphysical conception of life and art. Churches have become castles in the air. Pathos, as an appeal to an audience’s emotions, is a valuable device in literature as well as rhetoric and other forms of writing. Wagner's Parsifal is paradigmatic here, a work whose sultry religiosity appealed greatly to the decadents but which prepared the way for the consecration plays of Stefan George (The Acceptance into the Order, for example), the mystery of plays of Rudolf Steiner (The Portals of Consecration, 1907; The Testing of the Soul, 1911; The Guardian of the Door, 1912; and The Soul's Awakening, all performed in Munich) and the soul-dramas of a writer like Alfred Mombert (Aeon). See Lohner, “Die Problematik des Begriffes der Avantgarde,” 124. The sculptures of Barlach are similar in their portrayal of heavy, earthbound figures who nevertheless aspire towards visionary awareness: Der Ekstatiker is a good example here. It is clear that for most expressionists pathos in this sense does not play any role. Typically the dichotomy is itself subverted by the introduction of a third term, notably “Geist” (“spirit,” or “soul”): “art is not a flight from reality,—but rather a flight into the reality of the spirit. “Und wenn ich … / Schein, Lug und Spiel zu mir anstatt des Wesens hebe, / Wenn ich gefällig mich mit raschem Sinn belüge, / Als wäre Dunkles klar, als wenn nicht Leben tausend / wild verschloßne Tore trüge.” Stadler, “Der Spruch,” Menschheitsdämmerung (hereafter MHD), ed. For although the discourse of naturalist drama for example is progressive, encouraging social change and rebellion against the constraints of determinism and milieu, its dramatic form, even down to the very props it employs on stage, are so solid, and its verisimilitude so precise and uncompromising, that against its own intentions it overwhelms us with an impression of the unchangeable fixity and immovable determinacy of the world and its appearance.55. The persuader's toolkit. The emphasis is now on the medium itself as “Ausdruckskunst.” Yet not in the sense of producing the refined and self-sufficient formal consciousness characteristic of aestheticism. Isla Fisher's favourite joke in 'Borat Subsequent Moviefilm' was removed from the final edit. For him, too, pathos concerned the entire personality or the totality of the mental faculties. In the prologue, Shakespeare foreshadows the events that take place in the play between Romeo and Juliet and their families. In the history of German literature the word “pathos” occurs in several contexts. London: Weidenfeld and Nicolson, 1970. Firstly, to take the example of Marc's blue horses, the painted body of the horse is turned into a mere function of its color, and with its shocking lack of “authenticity,” the color is now by far the more striking component. “Elis” and “An den Knaben Elis.” Rpt.
