The "secondary" is on the rise, drowning everything in a constant babble of words and an unstaunchable flood of "information", "discourses" and "texts". Botho Strauß has recorded the most subtle societal shifts in his many plays but has also reacted to them in his theoretical works. This volume contains five of his most important essays, including his acceptance speech for the Büchner Award and an essay on George Steiner. Strauß's homage to Peter Stein's 60th birthday is simultaneously a critique of today's "originality-obsessed" theatre, while "Distanz einhalten" (Keeping One's Distance) re-evaluates the great Rudolf Borchardt. Also included is Strauß's controversial treatise, "Anschwellender Bocksgesang".
