Hanns Johst - Early Work

Early Work

His early work is influenced by Expressionism. Examples include Der Anfang (1917) and Der König (1920). Later, he turned to a naturalist philosophy in plays such as Wechsler und Händler (1923) and Thomas Paine (1927).

Bertolt Brecht's first play Baal was written in response to Johst's play Der Einsame, a dramatization of the life of playwright Christian Dietrich Grabbe. In 1928 Johst joined Alfred Rosenberg's "Kampfbund für deutsche Kultur" (Militant League for German Culture) designed to combat "Jewish" influence in German culture. In 1932 he joined the Nazi party, explaining his agreement with Hitler's ideology in the essay "Standpunkt und Fortschritt" in 1933.

Famous quotes containing the words work and/or early:

    Let us work without theorizing, ‘tis the only way to make life endurable.
    Voltaire [François Marie Arouet] (1694–1778)

    We have good reason to believe that memories of early childhood do not persist in consciousness because of the absence or fragmentary character of language covering this period. Words serve as fixatives for mental images. . . . Even at the end of the second year of life when word tags exist for a number of objects in the child’s life, these words are discrete and do not yet bind together the parts of an experience or organize them in a way that can produce a coherent memory.
    Selma H. Fraiberg (20th century)
