Jakob Wassermann's story Die Gefangenen auf der Plassenburg (The prisoners of Plasenburg) is taken as a starting point for a discussion of experiences, coping with events, and estrangement, and their effect regarding depressive emotional deterioration and its description. The possibilities of succinct expression in the description of boredom, depressive emotional deterioration, melancholy, and dejection are indicated, with special reference to interactional psychopathology.
