  • The Lives of the Miller's Taleby Peter G. Beidler

    McFarland & Company, Inc., Publishers 2014; US$ 40.00

    With his Miller's Tale Chaucer transformed a colorless Middle Dutch account into the lively, dramatic story of raunchy Nicholas, sexy Alison, foolish John and squeamish Absolon. This book focuses on the ways Chaucer made his narrative more effective through dialogue, scene division, music, visual effects and staging. The author pays special attention... more...

  • The Poet's Taleby Paul Strohm

    Profile Books 2015; US$ 16.00

    As the year 1386 began, Geoffrey Chaucer was a middle-aged bureaucrat and sometime poet, living in London and enjoying the perks that came with his close connections to its booming wool trade.

  • Lesermodelle und Lesertheorienby Marcus Willand

    De Gruyter 2014; US$ 140.00

    The theory and practice of literary studies has long been characterized by a virtually unnoticed asymmetry: the striking contrast between an intense effort to create a scientific foundation for the discipline and the equally striking paucity of efforts to systematically incorporate the reader models arising from these positions. This study... more...

  • Tango als Ausdruck der Melancholie in der modernen Gesellschaftby Vicky Kämpfe

    Diplomica Verlag 2009; US$ 31.07

    Die Moderne Gesellschaft in Europa tanzte, sofern sie der Anziehungskraft des Tangos erlegen war, einen melancholischen Tango. Diese Ausgangsthese fasst den in Europa getanzten Tango als Ausdruck eines melancholischen Gestimmtseins in Europa auf.
