Sintram and His Companions by FOUQUé, Friedrich de la MotteJoin Now to Follow

Friedrich de la Motte Fouque, also the author of Undine, was a German Romantic writer whose stories were filled with knights, damsels in distress, evil enchantments, and the struggle of good against overpowering evil. 'My strength is as the strength of ten, Because my heart is pure.' Fouque blends the Romantic love for nature and ancient chivalry while telling a powerful story about a young man who yearns for that which he can never attain. (Summary by Alisson Veldhuis)

Let's Read Together with Kevin Froleiks show

Let's Read Together with Kevin FroleiksJoin Now to Follow

Let’s Read Together is a bi-weekly podcast about books for people who forgot to read the book! Comedian Kevin Froleiks (kfcomedy.com) invites you to join him on a journey through some of the greatest books he's never read! In each episode, Kevin and a guest agree to read a book before attempting to talk about it together. What actually ends up happening is that neither of them have ever even opened the book and so they must try to make up the plot, characters, and major themes on the spot. Remember when you were in school and you tried to write a book report without reading the book? That's exactly what this podcast is all about!

Leonce und Lena by BüCHNER, Georg show

Leonce und Lena by BüCHNER, GeorgJoin Now to Follow

<p>Das 1895 uraufgeführte Lustspiel Leonce und Lena von Georg Büchner setzt sich an Hand der Liebesgeschichte der Königskinder Leonce und Lena sartirisch mit Sinn und Rolle des Einzelnen im gesellschaftlichen Gefüge auseinander. Sowohl dem gelangweilten, sinnsuchenden Prinz Leonce, als auch der depressiv, erduldenden Prinzessin Lena, ist die zwischen ihnen arrangierte Hochzeit unerträglich. Unabhängig von einander fliehen sie nach Italien und stellen bei einem zufälligen Treffen, ohne Kenntnis der jeweils anderen Identität, fest, dass sie füreinander bestimmt sind. Als Automaten verkleidet lassen sie sich schlieβlich an Stelle des vermeintlich abwesenden Brautpaars bei Leonce und Lenas Hochzeitsfeierlichkeiten trauen und erkennen erst hinterher die schicksalhafte Fügung.
