Geh Ariel (1999)


Part of a series or song cycle:

Ende der Handschrift, 11 späte Gedichte von Heiner Müller


Geh Ariel

Prospero:
Geh Ariel bring den Sturm
zum Schweigen und
wirf die Betäubten an den Strand
Ich brauch sie
lebend, damit ich sie töten kann
Miranda:
Vater warum?

Go Ariel

Prospero
Go, Ariel, silence
the storm and
throw the stupefied onto the beach
I need them
Alive, that I might kill them
Miranda
Why, Father?
