    About Gotthold Ephraim Lessing


    1. Gotthold Ephraim Lessing was a German writer, philosopher, dramatist, publicist, and art critic, and one of the most outstanding representatives of the Enlightenment era His plays and theoretical writings substantially influenced the development of German literature He is widely considered by theatre historians to be the first dramaturg.Lessing was born in Kamenz, a small town in Saxony His father was a clergyman and the author of theological writings After visiting Latin School in Kamenz from 1737 onwards and the F rstenschule St Afra in Meissen from 1741 onwards he studied theology and medicine in Leipzig 1746 1748.From 1748 to 1760 he lived in Leipzig and Berlin and worked as reviewer and editor for, amongst others, the Vossische Zeitung In 1752 he took his Master s degree in Wittenberg From 1760 to 1765 he worked in Breslau now Wroc aw as secretary to General Tauentzien In 1765 he returned to Berlin, only to leave again in 1767 to work for three years as a dramaturg and adviser at the German National Theatre in Hamburg There he met Eva K nig, his future wife.In 1770 Lessing became a librarian at the Herzog August Bibliothek in Wolfenb ttel His tenure there was interrupted by many travels For example, in 1775 he journeyed to Italy accompanied by Prince Leopold.In 1771 Lessing was initiated into Freemasonry in the lodge Zu den drei Rosen in Hamburg.In 1776 he married Eva K nig, who was then a widow, in Jork near Hamburg She died in 1778 after giving birth to a short lived son On 15 February 1781, Lessing, aged 52, died during a visit to the wine dealer Angott in Brunswick.Lessing was also famous for his friendship with Jewish German philosopher Moses Mendelssohn In his celebrated biography of Mendelssohn s famous grandson, Felix, Larry Todd describes their friendship as one of the most illuminating metaphors for the clarion call of the Enlightenment for religious tolerance.Lessing was a poet, philosopher and critic His theoretical and critical writings are remarkable for their often witty and ironic style and their unerring polemics Hereby the stylistic device of dialogue met with his intention of looking at a thought from different angles and searching for elements of truth even in the arguments made by his opponents For him this truth was never solid or something which could be owned by someone but always a process of approaching.Early in his life, Lessing showed interest in the theatre In his theoretical and critical writings on the subject as in his own plays he tried to contribute to the development of a new bourgeois theatre in Germany With this he especially turned against the then predominant literary theory of Gottsched and his followers He particularly criticized the simple imitation of the French example and pleaded for a recollection of the classic theorems of Aristotle and for a serious reception of Shakespeare s works He worked with many theatre groups e.g the one of the Neuberin.In Hamburg he tried with others to set up the German National Theatre Today his own works appear as prototypes of the later developed bourgeois German drama Scholars generally see Mi Sara Sampson and Emilia Galotti as the first bourgeois tragedies, Minna von Barnhelm Minna of Barnhelm as the model for many classic German comedies, Nathan the Wise Nathan der Weise as the first German drama of ideas Ideendrama His theoretical writings Laocoon and Hamburg Dramaturgy Hamburgische Dramaturgie set the standards for the discussion of aesthetic and literary theoretical principles Lessing advocated that dramaturgs should carry their work out working directly with theatre companies rather than in isolation.In his religious and philosophical writings he defended the faithful Christian s right for freedom of thought He argued against the belief in revelation and the holding on to a literal

    1. Dieses Büchlein hat mich bestens unterhalten und vergnügt. Vor allem die Nebenfiguren wie Franziska, Werner, Just und sogar der Wirt amüsierten mich und sind in meinen Augen die reizvollsten Charaktere in diesem Lustspiel. Sie verfügen über eine ungeheure Portion Witz und Scharfsinn, die der Handlung eine besondere Würze verleihen. Das Fräulein Minna und ihr Tellheim hätten es nimmer allein zu Wege gebracht, zueinander zu finden und mich von dem Stück zu überzeugen. Zudem zog mich Less [...]

    2. Minna is a character of qualities, she's smart and has a will of her own. She's crafty and runs circles around the men with her wit. The plot isn't complicated, just appears so, since the reader is unfolding the secrets at the same speed as the characters, which is quite a clever technique, but I fear it will lose some readers who prefer omniscience to opacity. Best line, it is easy to like good people, but it's a challenge to like bad ones. Minna is successful with people because she accepts th [...]

    5. This is a very pleasant comedy, possibly one of the favourite comedies from the German Enlightenment, by one of Germany's literary masters. It is still played in German theatres today.

    6. Eine Liebesgeschichte mit Happy End, treuen Freunden und dickköpfigen Charakteren. Unterhaltsam, aber nicht einprägsam.

    11. Lessing ist einer meiner liebsten deutschsprachigen Autoren, Nathan der Weise ist einfach ein Meisterwerk. Zu Minna habe ich vor allem deshalb gegriffen, weil es (wie Nathan) bei meinem Großvater im Regal stand und ich habe es wirklich genossen.Für mich hatte es etwas sehr shakespeare-haftes - ich war erst verunsichert, ob das nur mir so vorkam, aber die Anmerkungen hinten Buch erwähnten das auch. Jedenfalls ist es eine schön Komödie mit interessanten Verstrickungen und Verwirrungen. Es hat [...]

    12. Miss Sara Sampson was heavy going, but this is a light-footed critique of masculine, military Prussian values in opposition to fulfilment and happiness in the private sphere. It's considered to be the first 'national' German drama, set in the contemporary world of the Seven Year War, and treating questions of regional resentments between Prussia and Saxony. It's a marvel how Lessing managed to spin a very simple tale into five entertaining acts, with a deal of tension.

    13. Lessing was very influential in divorcing European theater from the stifling limitations of the supposed three unities, and this is reportedly a well-loved play in Germany, but I couldn't get into it. I suspect it is meaningful for reasons I don't understand because of my distance from the time and culture. Or it could be that it is a good-natured and fun play, but that quality doesn't come shining through in the English translation. Either way, it was hard to appreciate.

    14. ترجمة د/ مصطفى ماهر - مسرحية جيدة بها الكثير لتقراءاقتباس لبعض من جمل اعجبتني-"وددت لو كنت اكثر تحفظا فقليلا ما يتكلم المرء عما يتحلي به من فضائل و كثيرا ما يتكلم عن تلك التي تعوزه"-"انت تحسنين فهم الاخيار من الناس فمتي تتعلمين تحمل الارذال؟ فهم ايضا بشر"

    15. I saw this performed on stage in Munich shortly after reading it and realized how much of the humor I'd missed on the printed page. I think plays must always be seen, not read.
