The Plays of Grillparzer focuses on the genius of Franz Grillparzer, particularly embodied in his numerous plays.

The book first ponders on the plays of action and Greek tragedies. Discussions focus on the plays for the popular stage, Ein treuer Diener seines Herrn, Weh dem, der liigt!, Sappho, Des Meeres und der Liebe Wellen, Die Ahnfrau, Der Traum ein Leben, and Das goldene VlieB. The text then tackles the posthumous plays Die Judin von Toledo and Libussa. The book also underscores Grillparzer's conception of tragedy.

The manuscript is highly recommended for students and actors wanting to explore the genius of Franz Grillparzer.
