    Vandenhoeck & Ruprecht 2010; US$ 50.07

    Im Sinne einer Weisheitslehre mit konfessionell übergreifender Tendenz fand das hermetische Denken im frühneuzeitlichen Europa wachsende Resonanz in Dichtung und Philosophie.

  • Poesie und Philologie in der Goethe-Zeitby Matthias Buschmeier

  • Reformpoetikby Stefanie Stockhorst

    De Gruyter 2008; US$ 224.00

    The obvious gaps in standardisation in German baroque poetics are partially filled by poetological prefaces. Despite this, however, taught genre norms remain quite tentative. This absence of binding norms affords an artistic latitude, the significance of which has hitherto been underestimated. The study provides a systematic analysis of the... more...

  • Sturm und Drang: Göttinger Hain und Grenzgängerby Hans-Georg Kemper

    De Gruyter 2002; US$ 182.00

    The verse of the young Goethe has generally been taken as paradigmatic for the poetry of the Sturm und Drang period. This has led to almost total neglect of the remarkable poetry by Lavater and Herder, Lenz and Stolberg, Karschin and Voss, Schubart's religious verse, and the poetical works of the young Schiller. The present volumes cast... more...

    De Gruyter 2002; US$ 182.00

    The theme of this volume, 'knowledge in literature', refers not to the way in which literature communicates cultural phenomena, events, and norms regulating or reflecting everyday action and behaviour. Instead, it focuses on the 'new knowledge' about nature and the human animal produced (or rejected) in individual branches of science and... more...
