Walter Hasenclever’s Humanity represents the most ex­ treme form of the Expressionist reduction of language and its approximation to pure pantomime and silent film. It is also a most convincing example of the melodramatic pathos com­ mon to much of Expressionism, and it exemplifies the Passion­ play structure, as does Brecht’s Baal, for all their differences in spirit. Hasenclever’s work is also a good example of the great unevenness that often prevails within individual Expres­ sionist works—cheap banality standing next to grotesque power.
