Q: Did Kotzebue write any other plays set in the Americas?

Fragenkatalog von Selena Couture (University of Alberta, ᐊᒥᐢᑿᒌᐚᐢᑲᐦᐃᑲᐣ (Amiskwacîwâskahikan), Treaty 6 / Métis Region No. 4)

  • Does anyone have further information regarding the circulation of Kotzebue’s Peruvian plays in the repertoire in Germany?
  • Did Kotzebue write any other plays set in the Americas?
  • How was the Spanish invasion represented on German stages? Were there also significant anti-Catholic sentiments?
  • Are there any connections by Kotzebue’s Peruvian plays and Karl May’s Winnetou novels? Or with any contemporary German engagement with the Americas and Indigeneity?

    Along with her Picnic contribution “Kotzebue, der Kosmopolitismus und die Weimarer Klassik – eine Polemik“ Johanna Hügel provided a selected reading list of academic papers related to the topic of non-European indigenous people in Kotzebues plays. Two of them are focusing on German engagement with Black, Indigenous and People of Colour in the 18th – 19th Century:
    1) Sigrid Köhler: Beautiful Black Soul? The Racial Matrix of White Aesthetics (Reading Kotzebue against Kleist). In: Image & Narrative 14/3 (2013), p. 34-45;
    2) Susanne Zantop: Colonial Fantasies: Conquest, Family, and Nation in Precolonial Germany, 1770-1870. Durham, NC, London 1997.
