HEINRICH VON KLEIST`S PLAY AND THE AUTHOR`S WORK SHARE FUNDAMENTAL MOTIFS SUCH AS THE (CORRUPTED) TRIAL AND THE SENSE OF IRREVERSIBLE BROKENNESS. AS THE AUTHOR COLLECTED REACTIONS, IT BECAME CLEAR MOST OF THEM FOLLOW PATTERNS OF THIS FEELING: SOME SEE THE BREAKING OF THE LAW, OTHERS SHARE A DEEPER SENSE OF CULTURAL, EVEN METAPHYSICAL DAMAGE: PEOPLE EXPRESS CONCERN AND OUTRAGE AT ”DESTRUCTION” OF BUILDINGS, HERITAGE AND, MORE NOTORIOUSLY, OF ETHNIC DISCRIMINATION AND ALIENATION (AS MENTIONED BY HUNGARIAN JOURNALISTS). SOME EVEN GO AS FAR AS DEPLORING THE DECADENCE AND ULTIMATE FAILURE OF THE ARTS (ESPECIALLY CONTEMPORARY ART), TAINTED BY THE AUTHOR`S ENTERPRISE. STRIKINGLY, MOST OPINIONS EXPRESSED ABOUT THE ARTS, THEIR NATURE AND ”PURPOSE” REVOLVE AROUND AN UNDERSTANDING CLOSER TO KLEIST`S TIMES THAN TO OUR OWN. HOWEVER, TODAY`S MEANS ALLOW US TO ”RECONSTRUCT THE JUG” IN THE SHAPE OF A LARGE, OPULENT FRAME MADE ACCORDING TO FRAU MARTHE`S ORIGINAL, DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE WONDERS DEPICTED ON THE JUG.
