“The editors of this substantial volume, […] tend to avoid simplistic labelling and prefer to look at interesting parallels and contrasts. They welcome the former GDR’s approach of seeing Büchner as activist rather than artist [...]" - Osman Durrani, University of Kent, UK, in: Modern Language Review, Vol. 113 Part 3 pp. 681-682
