The Exposition as catastrophe in Büchner‘s Drama Danton’s Death
Drawing on the example of the drama Dantons Tod (Danton’s Death) allows to
illustrate the change from the interpersonal to the atmospheric and monological on
the one hand and the transition in the intellectual and spiritual situation in the first
part of the 19th century on the other hand. The reason for narrowing the research
on the exposition of Büchner’s drama is due to the fact that in the exposition the
intention of a drama finds its most explicit expression thus making the exposition
the hardest part of work for an author. In a letter dating from 21st October 1800
Schiller wrote to Körner: “The expositions are a real head scratcher for me until I
finally manage to saddle up”.
