A study of the nineteenth-century German writer Friedrich Hebbel, concentrating on his tragedies in prose, and examining in particular the way in which the language is used to convey Hebbel's beliefs, attitudes and intellectual preoccupations and also the dramatic effects. The three tragedies Judith, Maria Magdalene and Agnes Bernauer are studied in turn.
