  1. Friedrich Carl Georg Kaiser, called Georg Kaiser, November 25, 1878 June 4, 1945 was a German dramatist.He was highly prolific and wrote in a number of different styles An Expressionist dramatist, he was, along with Gerhart Hauptmann, the most frequently performed playwright in the Weimar Republic Georg Kaiser s plays include The Burghers of Calais 1913 , From Morn to Midnight 1912 , and a trilogy, comprising The Coral 1917 , Gas 1918 , Gas II 1920.He died at Ascona, Switzerland.The Burghers of Calais Die B rger von Calais , written in 1913, was not performed until 1917 It was Kaiser s first success The play is very dense linguistically, with its dialogue comprising numerous emotive monologues influenced by the Telegramstil poetics of August Stramm Like Kaiser s other works of the period, it bears the mark of Friedrich Nietzsche s philosophy, calling upon the modern individual to transcend mediocrity through extraordinary actions the Expressionist New Man became a commonplace of the genre.From Morning to Midnight, filmed by Karlheinz Martin in 1920, was written in 1912 and first performed in 1917 One of the most frequently performed works of German Expressionist theatre, its plot concerns a Cashier played by Ernst Deutsch in Martin s film in a small bank in W ostensibly Weimar who is alerted to the power of money by the visit of a rich Italian lady He embezzles 60,000 Marks and absconds to B Berlin where he attempts to find transcendent experiences in sport, romance and religion, only to be ultimately frustrated.Kaiser s classic Expressionist plays, written just before and during World War I, often called for man to make a decisive break with the past, rejuvenating contemporary society He eschewed characterization, and particularly character psychology, instead making his protagonists and other characters archetypes, employing highly anti naturalistic dialogue often comprising lengthy individual speeches.Kaiser s drama Side by Side Nebeneinander, 1923 , a people s play Volksst ck , premiered in Berlin on the 3rd November, 1923, directed by Berthold Viertel with design by George Grosz With this play Kaiser moved away from the Expressionism of his previous works Utilizing a rounded characterization and realistic curt, comic dialogue to tell a light hearted story of an idealistic pawnbroker caught up in the hyperinflation afflicting Germany at the time the currency stabilization came a fortnight after the play opened , the play inaugurated the new sobriety Neue Sachlichkeit in the drama Kaiser has left the cloud that used to surround him, a review in the Weltb hne suggested, and landed with both feet on the earth Kaiser s plays, particularly From Morning to Midnight, were highly influential on the German dramatists operating during the 1920s, including Iwan Goll, Ernst Toller and Bertolt Brecht, who drew on Kaiser s use of revue type scenes and parable, which was influenced by medieval and 16th century German mystery plays.Kaiser collaborated with the composer Kurt Weill on his one act operas Der Protagonist 1926 and Der Zar l sst sich photographieren 1928 , also Der Silbersee 1933.In his later years, he developed his criticism of the modern machine age that had characterised the Gas trilogy further Imprisoned briefly in 1923 for stealing a loaf of bread during the hyper inflationary crisis, Kaiser fled to Switzerland when the Nazis came to power in the 1930s Kaiser went into exile in 1938 , and turned to writing verse dramas on mythological themes, including Pygmalion, Amphitryon, and Bellerophon, and a pacifist drama, The Soldier Tanaka 1940 The Raft of the Medusa 1945 is a play written in verse that reverses the ethos of The Burghers of Calais in a pessimistic direction to avoid bad luck, thirteen children on a life raft drown the youngest of them.
