Abstract

The comparative analysis of the two versions of the myth of Amphitryon in the hmonymous comedies of Kleist (1807) and Molière (1668) tries to demonstrate how the political tension between France and Germany in the 19th and early 20th centuries finds its prefiguration in literature. While in Kleist the glorification and idolatry of absolute power (Gove) destroys the comunicative skills and terminates in masked tragedy, the transparency of the same power in Molière leads to a liberal solution in the form of a real comedy.
