In post-World War I Germany, the most influential dramatist of expressionism was Georg Kaiser (1878-1945), who died in the last year of World War II.
If the playwright had heeded these words, he would have made his alter ego, Tom Wingfield, a genuine expressionistic protagonist, with American antecedents in Eugene O'Neill's The Emperor Jones (1920), Elmer Rice's The Adding Machine (1923), and Sophie Treadwell's Machinal (1928), together with German precedents stretching from the quintessential expressionist Georg Kaiser all the way back to such late, even ironic romantic relatives of his as Heinrich von Kleist and Georg Buchner.
