Georg Büchner

Data de nascimento: 17. Outubro 1813
Data de falecimento: 19. Fevereiro 1837

Karl Georg Büchner foi um escritor e dramaturgo alemão.

Seguindo a tradição da família, começou a estudar medicina em 1831. Seu espírito revolucionário logo encontraria um meio de expressão na literatura. Sua intenção de promover uma insurreição no Hesse sob o lema: Paz às cabanas! Guerra aos palácios!, foi motivo de uma ordem de prisão, e ele refugiou-se na casa do pai. Ali escreveu A morte de Danton , uma análise ao mesmo tempo exaltada e pessimista das causas do fracasso da Revolução Francesa, e que foi o primeiro drama realista alemão.

Entre as obras que vieram a seguir, todas publicadas depois de sua morte, destacam-se a comédia Leôncio e Lena, sátira às ideias românticas, e a novela Lenz, homenagem a Jakob Michael Reinhold Lenz, membro, como Büchner, de um movimento literário conhecido como A Jovem Alemanha. Com Woyzeck , sua última peça, que em 1921 inspirou uma ópera ao austríaco Alban Berg, Büchner influenciou o drama social que veio com os naturalistas e expressionistas. Com um argumento baseado em fatos reais, o autor denuncia cruamente a opressão dos humildes. Perseguido pela polícia, Büchner fugiu para a Suíça e morreu em Zurique em 19 de fevereiro de 1837, com apenas 23 anos de idade.

„Todo homem é um abismo, e alguém é capaz de ter vertigens se olhar para baixo.“


„The bees sit so slothfully on the flowers, and the sunshine lies so lazily on the ground. A horrible idleness prevails. -- Idleness is the root of all vice. -- What people won't do out of boredom! They study out of boredom, they pray out of boredom, they fall in love, marry, and multiply out of boredom and finally die out of boredom, and -- and that's the humor in it -- they do everything with the most serious faces, without realizing why and with God knows what intentions. All these heroes, these geniuses, these idiots, these saints, these sinners, these fathers of families are basically nothing but refined idlers. -- Why mustbe the one to know this? Why can't I take myself seriously and dress this poor puppet in tails and put an umbrella in its hand so that it will become very proper and very useful and very moral? That man who just left me -- I envied him, I could have beaten him out of envy. Oh, to be someone else for once! Just for a minute. -- How that man runs! If only I knew of one thing under the sun that could still make me run.“ Leonce und Lena

„Only one thing abides: an infinite beauty that passes from form to form, eternally changed and revealed afresh.“

„Slowly, Woyzeck, take it slowly. One thing after another one. You make me feel giddy. - What am I supposed to do with the ten minutes you save rushing that way? What use are they to me? Think about it, Woyzeck; you've got a good thirty years left. Thirty years. That makes three hundred and sizty months - and then there's days, hours, minutes! What're you going to do with such a monstrous amount of time? Eh? Space it out a bit, Woyzeck.“ Woyzeck

„If we go to heaven they'll put us to work on the thunder, captain.“ Woyzeck

„Die Unterschiede sind so groß nicht, wir alle sind Schurken und Engel, Dummköpfe und Genies, und zwar das alles in einem: Die vier Dinge finden Platz genug in dem nämlichen Körper, sie sind nicht so breit, als man sich einbildet. Schlafen, Verdauen, Kinder machen - das treiben alle; die übrigen Dinge sind nur Variationen aus verschiedenen Tonarten über das nämliche Thema.“ Dantons Tod

„That's the water calling. It's a long time since anyone was drowned.“


„Wir alle sind Narren, es hat keiner das Recht, einem andern seine eigentümliche Narrheit aufzudringen. - Jeder muss in seiner Art genießen können, jedoch so, dass keiner auf Unkosten eines andern genießen oder ihn in seinem eigentümlichen Genuss stören darf.“ Dantons Tod

„Ich hab es satt; wozu sollen wir Menschen miteinander kämpfen? Wir sollten uns nebeneinandersetzen und Ruhe haben. Es wurde ein Fehler gemacht, wie wir geschaffen wurden; es fehlt uns etwas, ich habe keinen Namen dafür - aber wir werden es einander nicht aus den Eingeweiden herauswühlen, was sollen wir uns drum die Leiber aufbrechen?“ Dantons Tod

„Slechts één ding is blijvend, een nooit eindigende schoonheid, die van de ene vorm overgaat in de andere, vluchtig doorgebladerd, voortdurend wisselend, maar die je zeker niet voor altijd kunt vasthouden, in musea neerzetten en in noten vastleggen kunt, om dan jong en oud erbij te roepen, zodat ze erover kunnen zwetsen en druk doen.“ Lenz

„Müdigkeit spürte er keine, nur war es ihm manchmal unangenehm, dass er nicht auf dem Kopf gehen konnte.“ Lenz


„Ich wage kaum die Hände auszustrecken, wie in einem engen Spiegelzimmer, aus Furcht überall anzustoßen, daß die schönen Figuren in Scherben auf dem Boden lägen und ich vor der kahlen, nackten Wand stünde.“ Leonce und Lena

„Es gibt nur Epikureer, und zwar grobe und feine, Christus war der feinste; das ist der einzige Unterschied, den ich zwischen den Menschen herausbringen kann. Jeder handelt seiner Natur gemäß, d. h. er tut, was ihm wohltut.“ Dantons Tod

„Once upon a time there was a poor child with no father and no mother everything was dead
and no one was left in the whole world.
Everything was dead
and it went and searched day and night And since nobody was left on the earth it wanted to go up to the heavens and the moon was looking at it so friendly and when it finally got to the moon the moon was a piece of rotten wood and then it went to the sun and when it got there the sun was a wilted sunflower and when it got to the stars they were little golden flies stuck up there
like the shrike sticks 'em on the blackthorn and when it wanted to go back down to earth the earth was an overturned piss pot! and was all alone.“
Woyzeck
