  • Eine neue Vorstellungswelt herzustellen...by Anette Horn

    ATHENA-Verlag 2011; US$ 12.29

    Jean Pauls Ästhetik zeigt viele Verbindungen zu der englischen Philosophie des 18.

    This is a major study of the Nobel prize-winning French novelist Claude Simon.

  • The Transformations of Godotby Frederick Busi

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 30.00

    Didi, Gogo, Pozzo, Lucky -- the bizarre names stand out strangely against the bare-bones landscape of Waiting for Godot .

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00
