No kissing allowed. Mariele Millowitsch and Devid Striesow on impossible love in literature


There is always a problem. Just when you have found your dream princess or prince, some stupid social conventions get in the way. Or ridiculous family feuds, as in Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. Or you are a cowboy in Wyoming in 1963 and you have fallen in love with another cowboy (“Brokeback Mountain”, Annie Proulx). Or you are “Anna Karenina” (Tolstoy) and you are married to the very handsome Alexei Karenin but you love and desire the even more dashing Alexei Vronsky. As you can see, literature is full of stories of forbidden and impossible love, and Mariele Millowitsch and Devid Striesow are here to read the most exciting ones to us. Whether 200, 100 or 50 years ago, writers have us cheering, wallowing and sobbing as two (or three) characters hopelessly pine for each other. Concept: Axel von Ernst
