Anna Cropper. William Fox and Norman Shelley
Heinrich von Kleist (1777-1811) is one of the great names of German dramatic literature. Prince Frederick von Homburg is considered his masterpiece.
The play relates an episode from Prussian history: at the battle of Fehrbellin (1675) the Prince of Homburg, commanding the cavalry, gains victory in defiance of his orders. Is he to be treated as a hero or as a criminal?
