Ted Ziolkowski People Faculty Emeritus Professor of Germanic Languages and Literatures and Comparative Literature Ziolkowski,Ted

In celebration of the 10th Anniversary of the Max Kade Center for German Studies, Theodore Ziolkowski, Prof. Emeritus at Princeton Univ., will present the 2013 Max Kade Distinguished Lecture entitled “Duerrenmatt: The World of His Imagination in Word and Image.” Friedrich Duerrenmatt (1921-2000) is well known for his plays and dramaturgical work. The fact that he also was a gifted painter who created many exceptional pieces of art is not commonly known. In 1978, introducing the first illustrated volume of his art works, Duerrenmatt wrote: “My drawings are not subsidiary to my literary works; they are the drawn and painted battlefields on which my literary struggles, adventures, experiments and defeats take place.”
