This drama came into being at the same time as the Bildungsroman, i.e. in the last part of the eighteenth century ... After he had been presented in the Storm and Stress drama in his unrestrained adolescence, the figure of the Young Man began to undergo a maturation process. In the "Bildungsdrama" this process forms the substance of the dramatic plot.) p. 12 (The main distinguishing features between the "Bildungsdrama" and the "Bildungsroman" are concentration of plot, limitation of experience, and the rapidity with which the character growth takes place. As in the novel, the dramatic hero learns primarily from life itself, although there are leadership figures present.)
