Papa Hamlet | work by Holz and Schlaf |
Some features of this site may not work without it. The problem of artistic endeavour and recognition of creative imaginative writing at a time of revolutionary scientific and industrial activity, brings into focus the re-evaluation of the artist during intense pwpa development.
The intellectual crisis of the artist in Germany,is strongly influenced by the emphasis on financial success and scientific hamket. This emphasis is linked to the new aesthetic and artistic expectations, which are influenced by the political and social reality of the industrial age.
Naturalism is characterised by an abundance of theoretical literature; Arno Holz is regarded as the greatest of the theorists and his work Papa Hamlet, written together with Johannes Schlaf, is an attempt to combine theoretical consideratiohs with the “new” art. This thesis critically examines Papa Hamlet against the background of social, political and economic change. The investigation into four major areas includes firstly the intellectual crisis in relation to the “Grunderzeit”; the sentimental art of this period is strongly rejected as it in no way reflects the reality of the industrial age.
It is vitally important for the artists to be seen as modern, reflecting the truth of the age in which they write. This truth requires the work of art to be as close a reproduction of nature, of real life, as possible.
Attention to detail becomes vital and leads Arno Holz to the “Sekundenstil. Thirdly the attempt atno by Holz and Schlaf not to interfere as authors between the piece of prose and the reader, leads to the question of prose versus drama.
The investigation leads also into the problem of the lower middle class artist hamet is confronted by economic difficulties and finds himself threatened by the working class. Thienwiebel’s perseverance as “Hamlet”, symbolic of an art no longer acceptable, brings a discussion on the traditional German “Bildungsroman”.
Papa Hamlet by Arno Holz
Finally, Arno Holz hamldt that Art can only be revolutionised if language is revolutionised; these claims are examined in Papa Hamlet. It is my haamlet that the artist’s claim of being democratic is strongly to be questioned as Papa Hamlet can only be really appreciated by readers who have studied Hamlet by Shakespeare.
The greatest achievement by the Naturalists lies in questioning existing values; scientific observation and creative spirit. German Language and Literature.
