From Morning to Midnight, Paperback Book

Description

From Morning To Midnight, among the most frequently performed German Expressionist works, charts the life of a cashier who steals money from the bank and flees to Berlin.

The un-named protagonist's bid to escape his middle-class daily life is ultimately frustrated.

It is a popular piece in which Kaiser satirized the cheapness and futility of modern society.

His hero, a kind of machine-age Everyman, searches everywhere for some kind of fulfilment - in commercial sex, in salvationist religion - but discovers through a series of nightmarish episodes that the world is deceitful and illusory.

In the end, disillusioned and pursued by the police, he takes his own life.
