Klabund

(Alfred Henschke, 1890-1928)
   Playwright. Klabund is best known for his novels, but his dramatic adaptation from the Chinese of Der Kreidekreis (The Chalk Circle, 1925) was the basis of Bertolt Brecht's Derkaukasische Kreidekreis (The Caucasian Chalk Circle). In 1918 Klabund had begun translating poetry from Chinese and Japanese into German; The Chalk Circle was extremely popular after its premiere in Meissen. It was a fairy tale in dramatic form written for Elisabeth Bergner, though it contains some representation of a corrupt officialdom that Brecht likewise employed. Klabund wrote several other plays, none of them successful.
