The book is bilingual.
I see other reviews have had problems with Kindle downloads without, apparently, the English translation..
Having the original and the translation by an accomplished linguist is a great privilege . Its production is very pleasant to handle.
It is a stimulating and terrifying description of madness and the transposition , by Buchner, of the schoolmaster's description into his narrative lends immediacy and a linguistic excitement.

Is a suitable starting point into a further exploration of the fascinating worlds and writings of these two writers particularly in the case of Lenz whose work is little translated into English.

This edition is in GERMAN, despite the description stating otherwise. Please click the 'sample' button to confirm this for yourself. Don't waste money on a non-refundable purchase like I did. A complete waste of money.

This is a German edition. Do not pay for this book unless fluent. Shocking since it is described as an English addition.
