This book is designed to take up where Simon William's volume, Shakespeare on the German Stage . Very compelling is Hortmann's meticulous historical reconstruction of Gustav Grundgens in the title role of Hamlet in Berlin in 1936, (159-61).

This book is designed to take up where Simon William's volume, Shakespeare on the German Stage, 1586-1914 (1989), leaves off. The period up to the outbreak of World War I is, however, basically covered in both William's and Hortmann's volumes. Grundgens, himself is shown as intensely vulnerable in the Third Reich not only because of his homosexuality, but because of the efforts he was making to protect Jewish members of his theater staff

This book tells the story of Shakespeare in the German-speaking theatre against the background of German culture and politics in the twentieth century. It follows the earlier volume by Simon Williams on the reception of Shakespeare during the previous 300 years (Shakespeare on the German Stage, 1586-1914). Hortmann concentrates on the two most important and fruitful periods: the years of the Weimar Republic (1919-1933) and the turbulent decades of the sixties and seventies, when the German theatre was revitalised by a stormy marriage of avant-garde art and revolutionary politics.

Excellent compendium, first-class reference book

The Germans have a special affinity for Shakespeare to the point of having proclaimed him as one of their own. I have even heard that there are some Germans who think their Shakespeare is better than our Shakespeare. (Seriously, however, in the days leading to World War II some Germans did argue that a country that produced Shakespeare could not possibly be an enemy.) The Germans (with some justification) also take credit for rescuing Shakespeare's work from the hack adaptations in the years following his death. (One must remember that D'Avenant's adaptation of Macbeth, Nahum Tate's King Lear [with a happy ending] and Thomas Shadwell's The Tempest were the standard versions on the English stage for nearly a hundred years.) The German love affair with Shakespeare is an enduring one. There are hundreds of productions of Shakespeare in Germany every year. It has been so for virtually this entire century. In this fascinating book, William Hortmann shows how the political and social changes of the 20th Century were reflected in productions of Shakespeare on the German stage. It is amply illustrated with 125 photographs of the productions discussed in the text. There is also a special section by Maik Hamburger on theatre in Socialist East Germany that is one of the book's highlights. My only real criticism is that the book doesn't quite go all the way to the end of the century. It ends at 1995. I would still strongly recommend it to anyone who's interested in Shakespeare, Twentieth Century Germany or the history of the theatre. There is much food for thought here.

A comprehensive history, this book is especially worthwhile because of the stories the author includes about individual productions, and how he ties those productions to the social and political movements around them. Not at all a dry, academic book, this book pulses with the life of those actors and directors who dared to move theatre into new directions. The German approach to Shakespeare has always been stimulating and at times for some, a bit shocking. I believe English productions of the Bard eventually took on many of the stylistic and thematic elements of these German productions. Richly illustrated and quite comprehensive.
