pacifist during WWI ?[edit]

Actually I think initially Hauptmann was not against the war, he only later changed his attitude. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 212.171.245.92 (talk) 21:18, 27 October 2008 (UTC)

I think you're right. Hauptmann signed the Manifesto of the Ninety-Three. According to German Wikipedia he later changed his opinion and supported the First German Republic.--87.220.61.195 (talk) 10:13, 9 February 2009 (UTC)

Public domain PDFs of Hauptmann's plays[edit]

I have worked my way through the list of available PDFs of Hauptmann's plays at the Internet Archive. It offers multiple versions of each of the seven volumes of the translations of Hauptmann's plays that are now in the public domain. Obviously, only one of each is required for the article, so I am giving the full list here in case any of the links inserted into the article become dead at some point in the future; hopefully one of the alternatives listed below may be substituted. All are PDF versions, of anything between 4MB - 40MB in size, so they will take a little while to be downloaded into your browser if you click them. They are of variable quality, so for the final selection for the article I have selected the cleanest available option with the least watermarks throughout.

Atlantis -- Titanic tie-in[edit]

His 1912 novel 'Atlantis', has received notability as the basis for the movie of the same name. I don't know how closely the screenplay follows the novel, but it is often noted[1] that the novel was published one month prior to the Titanic disaster, and the movie was released within one year after the disaster. Purportedly, (I haven't read it) the plot coincides remarkably with the fate of the Titanic. This is probably worthy of mention in this article. ~Eric F 184.76.225.106 (talk) 10:42, 9 April 2012 (UTC)

 Done ...but may need to be modified, pending verification. ~Eric F 184.76.225.106 (talk) 17:03, 18 April 2012 (UTC)

Need help -- I need to verify specific date of publication (month, at least). What I have is "first printing" date (November 1912), but this is for an English translation by Adele and Thomas Seltzer, which presumably would be sometime after first publication (German). If anybody can cite publication date (month/year), or point me in the right direction, please leave a note on my talk page -->~Eric F 184.76.225.106 (talk) 18:39, 18 April 2012 (UTC)

German Article[edit]

I have translated much of the German article on Hauptmann (which is quite detailed). However, I have not done the citations, all of which would be in German anyway and therefore not much use to Anglophone readers. Let me know if you have questions or notice any errors or apparent errors. Thanks -- InspectorTiger (talk) 20:57, 17 May 2014 (UTC)
