How to use Wedekind in a sentence
Wedekind, who to the mtier of the artist joins that of the enfant terrible, strains in this play every nerve to shock.
But Wedekind's most serious contribution to dramatic literature is to be found in Frhlingserwachen.
Death, however, is a pet theme of Wedekind, who proceeds to batten thereon with abnormal gusto.
And, indeed, with all his clownings and buffooneries, Wedekind is frequently as serious as Mr. Shaw himself.
If we have to commit ourselves, we would say that the Wedekind play is the lyric play of irony—irony both comic and tragic.
