This is a quirky play which comes at the end of the more volatile period of his creativity. It moves from the realm of raw and intense passion into the more seemingly more stable world of the court and bourgeois life. This stability is, however, non-existent. The young prince falls in love with a humble girl from a bourgeois background, Luise, and there union ruins the both of them. Her family’s social climbing is problematic and the prince can not tear himself away from the intrigues of his father who is set against the union of him with such a lowly girl. The play is slow and the language rigid. Not to be recommended.
