Other Literary Forms

(Critical Edition of Dramatic Literature)

In addition to drama, Hugo von Hofmannsthal’s works include several novellas, a large number of poems, and essays on literary, philosophical, and political topics, as well as translations into German of Greek, French, and Spanish dramas. Autobiographical reflections, including the crucial self-interpretation entitled Ad me ipsum (1930), as well as Hofmannsthal’s extensive correspondence, fictitious letters, and fictitious dialogues, are published in the fifteen-volume Gesammelte Werke in Einzelausgaben (1945-1959).
