Heinrich von Kleist died on 21 November 1811. It’s this bicentennial which led to the timing of German Literature Month and the inclusion of Kleist and Other Classics week in the itinerary. To accompany it, we have the two Kleist titles from the Melville House Press Art of the Novella series as this week’s giveaway.
I’ve already reviewed Michael Kohlhaas and I will be reviewing The Duel during Kleist week. These really are two classic novellas that I would urge everyone to try. You will be surprised at how relevant they are to today.
