ABSTRACT
An essay from the book "Essays on Twentieth-Century German Drama and Theater: An American Reception 1977-1999" is presented. It examines the dramatic poem "Beyond the Hamlets," by Peter Handke. The play is centered on the issue of tradition as revelation and has a text that insists on moral discourse. The dramatic poem provides words to reflect on oneself on the way people learned to trust other people. One could consider the dramatic poem as an art-work in the tragic tradition via playful reading.
