image of Daphnis

Geisenhanslüke’s book applies Benjamin’s famous concepts such as ‘myth’ vs. ‘history’, ‘catastrophy’ vs. ‘mourning’, ‘idea’, ‘meaning’ etc. in a comparative manner on the baroque drama to recommend his view as still being capable for stimulating further research. The article critically discusses range and capacity of Geisenhanslüke’s attempt in the light of baroque philology and suggests to limitate Benjamin’s thinking strictly on modern literature at best.
