In particular the two "Medea" dramas, the originality of which was stressed by Klinger himself, mark an important point in the history of the literary interpretation of this figure from classical times through to the present day. This reprint presents the first edition of the plays and, in a variant apparatus, the deviations in the authorized editions published during Klinger's lifetime as well as information concerning the creation of the dramas.
