Other Literary Forms
Wolfgang Hildesheimer wrote one novel and two prose monologues. His book Mozart (1977) is a well-researched essay on the composer. It was followed by Marbot: Eine Biographie (1981; Marbot: A Biography, 1983), the biography of a fictional artist. Hildesheimer also wrote numerous radio plays and stage dramas and was a literary translator and reviewer. In 1996, a posthumous collection of Hildesheimer’s collages, Schönheit als Therapie: Bilder gegen die Verzweiflung, was published.
