Groteske und Absurdität vs. Sentimentalität : zu unterschiedlichen emotionalen Phänomenen im Dramentext und Drehbuch des 'Besuchs der alten Dame'

The grotesque and absurdity vs. sentimentality : different emotional phenomena in the theatre script and the screenplay of Besuch der alten Dame

  • This paper compares Friedrich Dürrenmatt's drama script titled Besuch der alten Dame (The Visit, 1956) with the screenplay of the same name by Susanne Beck and Thomas Eifler (2008) with regard to emotionality in language. Due to the fact that the paper cannot focus on all aspects of emotionality, just one significant phenomenon will be addressed, namely certain features found in Dürrenmatt's text which are mostly lost in the screenplay and vice versa. The main focus is on the grotesque and absurdity on the one hand, and the text's closeness to reality and sentimentality on the other. The differences are illustrated using extracts from two selected scenes - the so-called Konradsweilerwald scene and the final scene. From the viewpoint of methodology, the linguistic text analysis of emotions will be used. Within the analysis, expression of emotions, description of emotions and evocation of emotions will be distinguished.
