History of German literature

  • The Science of Literatureby Helmut Müller-Sievers; David E. Wellbery

    De Gruyter 2015; US$ 112.00

    Do literary texts provide distinctive access to the history of science? Is the study of literature based on scientific procedures?

The essays in this collection show how literary and scientific texts from the late 18th to the late 19th centuries revolve around these... more...

  • German Pop Literatureby Margaret McCarthy

    De Gruyter 2015; US$ 280.00

    Pop literature of the 1990s enjoyed bestselling success, as well as an extensive and sometimes derogatory reception in the press. Since then, scholarship on pop has emerged to challenge its flash-in-the-pan status by situating the genre within a longer history of aesthetic practices. Essays in the volume examine works by well-known pop... more...

  • Der lange Weg in die Gegenwartsliteraturby Heribert Tommek

    De Gruyter 2015; US$ 182.00

    1989 marks the end of post-war literature in Germany. Yet, where is the historical locus of contemporary literature? Unlike attempts to situate contemporary literature in terms of historical events, the present study attempts to develop a structural history based on Pierre Bourdieu?s concept of the ?literary field?, thereby shedding light on the long... more...

  • Eschatologie und Soteriologie in der Dichtungby Daniela Kohler

    De Gruyter 2015; US$ 140.00

    Johann Gottfried Herder?s paraphrase of the Apocalypse Maran Atha (1779) and Johann Caspar Lavater?s ?Messiah? epics (1780, 1794) provide evidence that the tradition of Christian verse did not end, by any means, with the completion of Klopstock?s ?Messiah,? as has been assumed by literary historians. Based on Herder's and Lavater?s works, this study... more...
