Summary/Abstract: Martin Mosebach’s drama "Rotkäppchen und der Wolf" (2006) harks back to Ludwig Tieck’s fairy tale. For Mosebach, the destruction of the depicted world, characteristic of this Romantic genre and often interpreted as a harbinger of the postmodern game, is not a means of unmasking conventionalised patterns. The writer uses them to create a multilayered structure, analogous to Baroque antithesis, which indicates complicated connections and hidden meanings.
