Hofmansthal, Hugo von

Von Hoffmansthal was born and raised in pre-World War I Vienna, turned against the trend toward realism in turn-of-the-century drama to symbolism, the shrine of disenchanted young poets and dramatists of his time. His most well-known plays include Electra, Der Rosenkavalier, Ariadne and Naxos, all of which are librettos written for Richard Strauss operas. Also notable are his Poems (1903), the tragedy The Tower (1925) and an adaptation of Everyman (1911).
