About this title


This book deals exclusively with the problem of androgyny in Kleist's life and work and attempts to explain his premature ecstatic death with Henriette Vogel on the basis of patterns of male/female relationships which become apparent in a detailed structural analysis of several of his works, revealing the archetype of the androgyne on both a literary and personal level. Borchardt uses an interdisciplinary approach based on Jungian aesthetics and Mauron's psychocriticism. Psychological and anthropological theories help to explain the process of biopoesis: how a mental image takes on concrete expression in language, and how the symbol becomes a container for psychic energy. Finally, this revealing study relates psychic and mythic structures in Kleist's work to similar patterns in his life and analyzes the archetype of the androgyne and the hermaphrodite as they reflect the processes of creativity.
