TitelThe Work of Heinrich von Kleist
BeschreibungThe English Goethe Society, in collaboration with the Institute of Germanic and Romance Studies, is pleased to announce a conference on

The Work of Heinrich von Kleist

to be held on Thursday, 4 and Friday, 5 October 2007

at the Institute of Germanic & Romance Studies, University of London

We are now some two hundred years away from Heinrich von Kleist's major works. Yet the passing of time has not had a mellowing effect. What he wrote has, it seems to us, lost none of its ability to engage, to shock and trouble us. In thematic and stylistic terms Kleist takes risks. Generically he challenges us at every turn: he writes ferocious tragedies and conciliatory tragedies, he writes both robustly good-humoured and anguished comedies, he writes bureaucratic, brutal, and philosophical prose.

The purpose of the conference is to take another look at this profoundly scandalous and scandalously profound oeuvre. Contributions, both laudatory and sceptical, are invited on any aspect of Kleist's work.

Because we are hoping to secure funding for the conference from the British Academy to enable one or two speakers to be invited from abroad, we need, sooner rather than later, to put together a draft programme. If you would be interested in offering a paper, could you possibly send, BY 31 MARCH 2007, an email detailing your proposed topic BOTH TO

Dr Matthew Bell (email: matthew.bell@kcl.ac.uk) AND
Professor Martin Swales, c/o Jane Lewin (jane.lewin@sas.ac.uk)

Many thanks!
