    De Gruyter 2015; US$ 140.00

    This study seeks to counteract the widespread claim that unlike Goethe?s Weimar stage, August Wilhelm Iffland ran the Berlin National Theater from 1796 to 1814 exclusively based on economic considerations.

  • Form und Formauflösung der Tragödieby Zoe Ghyselinck

    De Gruyter 2015; US$ 140.00

    In response to the pluralism of turn-of-the-century literature, the German author Paul Ernst (1866?1933) sought to reestablish a form of tragedy based on ancient models.

    De Gruyter 2015; US$ 28.00

Essays in the volume examine works by well-known pop... more...
