Summary (From the publisher):

The four plays presented here, two newly translated for this edition, are The Broken Pitcher, Amphitryon, Penthesilea, and Prince Frederick of Homburg. As E.L. Docotorow says, 'a Kleist play may be set in ancient Greece, in Holland, or in seventeenth century Prussia, but the fortress of consciousness is where the action occurs.'
