First published in 1926, as part of the Cambridge Plain Texts series, this volume contains a selection of essays from Die Hamburgische Dramaturgie by key German Enlightenment figure Gotthold Ephraim Lessing (1729–81). The essays were originally written as part of Lessing's role as advisor at the Hamburg National Theatre. Texts are presented in German with a short editorial introduction in English. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in Lessing and the development of German drama.
