Lothar Schreyer's dramas from the expressionist periodical Der Sturm are collected here for the first time together with twelve previously unpublished earlier works and eleven later dramas. The full extent of Schreyer's development as a dramatist can now be seen from derivative forms, including ancient myth, the Narcissus theme, naturalism and farce, through his experiments in expressionist language, to his later religious works. This collection, with its long introduction, is an essential tool for researchers into early 20th-century German drama.
