I've posted this already last year. but today is the bicentenary of poet, dramatist and short story writer Heinrich von Kleist's death, so it's again time to bear his work in remembrance. He was born on October 18th, 1777 and died November 21st, 1811 by commiting suicide - he shot himself together with his friend Henriette Vogel, who was fatally ill. Both where only 34 years old.

Thank you for the link. You know I always love to receive suggestions and references. Can't really relate to this work, though. It really took me a while to see the connection (dancers/strings) - actually until I came back today and replied ;) because I think the intention is very different and the metapher of marionettes is used to refer to roles/relationships/society and not to consciousness and self-awareness. You'll know what I mean, when you read the text. But again: thanks for your recommendations. They are always welcome! <3
