Die emotionale Bedeutung der grünen Farbe in den Liedern der Sammlung "Des Knaben Wunderhorn"

The emotional significance of the colour green in the songs of "Des Knaben Wunderhorn"

  • Colour symbolism is one of the means of expressing emotion. This paper focuses on the colour green, whose symbolism is derived from nature. In the collection 'Des Knaben Wunderhorn', green occurs in emotional contexts as a means of overcoming grief or in connection with love and eroticism, as it provides lovers with an environment in which to express their love. Green also occurs as an attribute in erotic symbols and in descriptions of the springtime awakening of the countryside, where it conveys joy and hope.
