  • Schau-Spiele des Geldesby Daniel Fulda

    De Gruyter 2005; US$ 224.71

    Many comedies are instances of 'money on the stage' and not merely because their subject matter revolves around 'filthy lucre'. Numerous features characteristic of the genre serve to illustrate the social expectations geared to money. This being the case, it is possible to write a genre history of (baroque and Enlightenment) comedy in... more...

  • Die Tragödie der Moderneby Daniel Fulda; Thorsten Valk

    De Gruyter 2010; US$ 161.22

    Around 1800 the modern tragedy manifested itself in constant dispute with a philosophical tragedy discourse, making the traditional genre criteria which were still mainly oriented on Aristotle's drama aesthetics fade into the background and bringing to the fore definition attempts which were grounded in cultural theory. The tension between... more...

  • Sattelzeitby Elisabeth Décultot; Daniel Fulda

    De Gruyter 2016; US$ 107.46

    How did historical discourse change between 1750 and 1850, the era that Koselleck referred to as the ?Saddle Period?? Besides the much-debated phenomenon of scientification, what part was played by the love of history, hopes of making a political impact, an orientation to aesthetic memorability, and hypothetical historical designs? Was the old notion... more...

  • Um 1700: Die Formierung der europäischen Aufklärungby Daniel Fulda; Jörn Steigerwald

    De Gruyter 2016; US$ 96.71

    Die Zeit um 1700 bezeichnet man gerne als Frühaufklärung. Ihre weltbildlichen wie sozialen Öffnungen werden dann als Auftakt zur großen Öffnung der Aufklärung durch Vernunft und Kritik betrachtet. Demgegenüber fragt der Band nach Öffnungen um 1700, auf die wieder neue Schließungen folgten. Die relative Offenheit der Jahrhundertwende machte diese zum... more...

  • Literatur und Geschichteby Daniel Fulda; Silvia S. Tschopp

    De Gruyter 2002; US$ 193.47

    History, as both literary critics and historians agree, is not a given, but forms itself in specific patterns of thought and the linguistic patterns which realize these modes of thinking. The present volume devotes itself to history as a written construct by examining the broad spectrum of literary treatments of history from the late... more...

  • "Kann man denn auch nicht lachend sehr ernsthaft sein?"by Daniel Fulda; Antje Roeben; Norbert Wichard

    De Gruyter 2010; US$ 150.47

    Making readers laugh ? or in the theatre making the audience laugh ? is one of the most important but least acknowledged aims of literature. Even though we often laugh out of pure exuberance or smirk mockingly, it is nevertheless true that one can be ?very serious even whilst laughing?, as Lessing?s Minna von Barnhelm already knew. This... more...
