Ästhetischer Extremismus: Hans Henny Jahnn

  • Literature is not only a refuge of good, beauty and truth, it is, at the same time, a place of radical and extreme aspects. It contains uncontrollable forces, which are contrary to the classical ideal of harmony. Extremist poetics do not appear in the context of the conformal biographies. Biography and aesthetic, literature and life are closely connected, their tendency are going into the identity of the author as an artist of the extremes. The present study will exemplify the concept of “extremist literature”, respective “aesthetically extremism” on the basis of the drama Pastor Ephraim Magnus (1919) written by Hans Henny Jahnn (1894-1959).
