Summary The story encompasses the gruesome detail, horror, passion, and torment that characterized works of the German Expresionist movement. Wozzeck is an impoverished soldier driven insane by his manipulative superiors and his mistress' infidelity. In a jealous rage, he stabs her, then drowns when he tries to wash the blood from his hands.
