Characters[ edit ] Adam — the judge. He is the one who broke the jug. He became attracted to Eve and in order to make her cooperate with his desires he made up a story about Ruprecht being conscripted into the army.
Eve — a simple but honest country girl. She knows who broke the jug but does not say so until he directly threatens Ruprecht whom she loves. He is mysterious and portrayals of him vary.
He uncovers the truth but cleverly allows Adam to condemn himself rather than openly accusing him. Walter — the man who comes to inspect Adam and the way he runs his court. This explains why such a seemingly insignificant object becomes so significant in the eyes of the courtroom.
Only Adam and Eve know who broke the jug, and neither reveal the truth until Adam sentences Ruprecht to prison, when she says decisively, "Judge Adam smashed the jug. Comedy — This is the only piece of work which Kleist wrote which is pure comedy.
Most of the humour is based on word play and the ludicrous ideas which are presented. Truth — Kleist became intrigued by the Kantian idea of being unable to know what is really real. The play shows the contradicting ideas that what is real is what you can see and touch as represented by Ruprecht and that appearances might be deceptive and that there might be a deeper truth as represented by Eve.
Justice and the judicial system — Adam is both the criminal and the judge. It represents his role as the judge. Rural life — The village where the events take place is small and the inhabitants look to Adam as the ultimate authority.
The idea that he could be guilty only occurs to Walter, the outsider, and Licht, the intelligent secretary. Symbolic Names — The names of the characters are highly symbolic, Adam and Eve, in reference to the Fall and the idea of temptation. The play opposes the original fall however in that it is the man, Adam, who is corrupt and has corrupted the innocent Eve. Licht "Light" uncovers the truth about the breaking of the jug subtly, bringing light, metaphorically, to the situation.
Adaptations[ edit ] In a German film of the same title was released with Emil Jannings in the lead. It is also a opera by Viktor Ullmann. In it was produced as a film in Mexico by German director Alfredo B. Crevenna under the title Adan, Eva y el diablo.
Der zerbrochne Krug – Inhaltsangabe / Zusammenfassung
Ein Lustspiel war zur damaligen Zeit keine sehr angesehene literarische Gattung, das wusste Heinrich von Kleist. Aber er war von der Darstellung der Gerichtsszene auf dem Kupferstich inspiriert. Er gewann die Komik aus der Darstellung des sich strafbar gemachten Richters. Von der Anregung durch den Kupferstich bis zum abgeschlossenen Werk vergingen also ca.
