In this article, the writer discusses the issues of Gemeinschaft and Gesellschaft in the extreme contrasts of the relationships between the people in the play. The writer discusses that both of the terms cited above conceptualize collective ideas of community and society respectively.

From the Paper:

"Yet, as representative of those amorphous entities, they are nonetheless engendered and referenced by the interaction or its negation between individuals. Harris defines Gemeinschaft as a fraternal "social bond...having a real organic life" based on "reciprocal" relationships that "support the mental and physical well-being of the other party". In Gesellschaft such "mutual affirmation" is replaced by "a purely mechanical construction, existing in the mind...what we think of as society"."
