The centenary in 1962 of the birth of Gerhart Hauptmann was commemorated by the production of many of his plays and an exhibition organized by the Schiller-Nationalmuseum in Marbach. The generosity of the German Embassy made it possible to arrange a similar exhibition at the Institute of Germanic Studies in London, in connection with which the Institute organized a series of lectures by four noted Hauptmann scholars. The essays arising from these lectures are collected in this volume.
