Title: C. M. Wieland's "Die Geschichte des Agathon" (Christoph Martin Wieland)
Author: Schoolar, Geoffrey
Advisor: Eifler, Margret
Degree: Master of Arts thesis
Abstract: The first and third versions of Wieland's Die Geschichte des Agathon differ from each other in various ways. One observes differences in style, wording, chapter grouping, and other "superficial" changes. There are also major differences in content. Chief among these are the "Danae Geschichte" and the episode at Tarent, which are depicted in detail only in the third version. The respective endings of the two works are remarkably different, and one observes a development in Agathon's character more completely in the third version. Agathon's character development is central to the question whether or not Agathon is a "Bildungsroman".
