As sort of a finale to our series on Der Knabe im Moor, I want to present you this video, the work of a high school drama group from the Friedrich-Wilhelm-Gymnasium in Trier.

I think this is excellent, outstanding work – for students, of course. Still, very enjoyable, and worth more than a small note: In a time when most kids usually respond to reading with sentences like ‘does this exist as a smartphone app?’, I am delighted to see that even classic writers like Droste still get such a passionate and engaging treatment. 🙂 Gonna copy that MO for a poem I do with my own class.
