* JustifiedCriminal{{Outlaw}}: The main discussion between Kleist and Luther discusses the meaning of this:
--> '''Luther''': You impious and terrible man! Who gave you the right to attack Junker von Tronka in pursuance of decrees issued on no authority but your own, and when you could not find him in his castle to come down with fire and sword on the whole community that gave him shelter?\\
'''Michael Kohlhaas''': No one, your Reverence, from this moment on! Information I received from Dresden deceived me and led me astray! The war I am waging against human society becomes a crime if this assurance you give me is true and society had not cast me out!\\
'''Luther''': Cast you out! What mad idea has taken possession of you? Who do you say has cast you out from the community of the state in which you have lived? Has there ever, so long as states have existed, been a case of anyone, no matter who, becoming an outcast from society?\\
'''Michael Kohlhaas''': I call that man an outcast who is denied the protection of the law! For I need that protection if my peaceful trade is to prosper; indeed it is for the sake of that protection that I take refuge, with all the goods I have acquired, in that community. Whoever withholds it from me drives me out into the wilderness among savages. [[CreateYourOwnVillain It is he how can you deny it? who puts into my hands the club I am wielding to defend myself]].

The story is generally regarded as a classic in German and European Literature. Creator/FranzKafka was a major fan of Kleist and often read out "Michael Kohlhaas" to his friends, calling it one of his favorite stories.

Michael Kohlhaas is a horse-dealer in [[HolyRomanEmpire mid-sixteenth century Germany]], the time of Martin Luther. His neighbor the Junker[[hottip:*:Squire]] von Tronka shamelessly "impounds" two of his horses and works them half to death. Kohlhaas files a complaint in court; the Junker has friends in high places and gets the case dismissed. Kohlhaas thinks he'll have to take drastic measures to get a hearing. His wife Lisbeth, hoping to avert this, takes a petition to the Elector of Saxony. She is shoved around by the Elector's servants and dies. She, dying, points to a verse in the Bible: "Forgive thine enemies; do good to them that hate thee." -- Kohlhaas: "May God never forgive me as I forgive the Junker."
