Week 1: This week we focused mostly on finding a playwright to focus on. I researched a few playwrights and eventually found Andreas Gryphius. He seems to be the playwright with the most information about him. We can use the fact that there is not much information on any other playwright than Gryphius and discuss why he made it through history and his fellow writers didn't.
Week 2: This week I took home a book of Gryphius' sonnets. This book has every sonnet translated and analyzed. This will be important in our research as we dive more into the mind of Gryphius and the style of writing during the time of Baroque German Theatre.
