    ATHENA-Verlag 2014; US$ 17.12

    Schon früh hat man bei Hölderlin den Zug zu einer mehr und mehr esoterischen und hermetischen Sprache bemerkt. Hölderlins Bestreben, in der Poesie Dinge auszusagen, die nie vorher in der Poesie ausgesprochen worden waren, trug dazu bei, ihn immer näher an jenen Abgrund des Schweigens heranzuführen, in dem das Ungesagte und Unsagbare ruht. Wenn Hölderlin... more...

  • Die Rezeption des Orpheus-Mythos in deutschen Musikdramen des 17. Jahrhundertsby Olga Artsibacheva

    De Gruyter 2008; US$ 147.00

    The story of the divine singer who could tame wild animals and enchant inanimate nature, and who for love of his wife descended to the underworld, has exercised a never-ending fascination throughout all epochs. It is therefore scarcely surprising that the myth of Orpheus became a source of inspiration and his figure a leading character for the new... more...

  • Reading Riddlesby Brian Tucker

    Bucknell University Press 2010; US$ 69.99

    Reading Riddles: Rhetorics of Obscurity from Romanticism to Freud explores how the riddle becomes a figure for reading and writing in early German Romanticism and how this model then enables Sigmund Freud's approach to the psyche. It traces a migration of ideas from literature to psychoanalysis and argues that the relationship between them must be... more...

  • Wissenschaft ohne Universität, Forschung ohne Staatby Hans-Harald Müller; Mirko Nottscheid

    De Gruyter 2011; US$ 182.00

    This study documents for the first time the scientific and cultural-historical significance of the Gesellschaft für deutsche Literatur (1888?1938) in Berlin, with which the educated middle classes contributed both to the creation of the German literary studies in more recent times and to the urban culture of the city. The authors convey a vivid picture... more...

    De Gruyter 2011; US$ 154.00

    Knowledge structuring and knowledge transfer are closely linked to the materiality and mediality of the book. The articles in this volume examine the phenomena of radical changes in the media from handwriting to printing to digital media; the history of books and libraries through historical perspectives of society, culture and ideas; the relationship... more...

  • Aus der Werkstatt Diebold Laubersby Christoph Fasbender; Claudia Kanz; Christoph Winterer

    De Gruyter 2012; US$ 154.00

    Diebold Lauber?s workshop in Hagenau produced hand-written illustrated texts in the first half of the 15th century. Up to now they have been studied mainly in relation to their serial production. They are thought to be ?nicely painted? but with the wording largely copied with little consideration of its content. The studies in this collection are therefore... more...
