    Das Nibelungenlied zählt zu den zentralen Texten der deutschen Literatur des Mittelalters. Es ist einer der wenigen, die sich auch im kulturellen Gedächtnis unserer Zeit noch behaupten können.

  • Böttiger-Lektürenby René Sternke

    De Gruyter 2012; US$ 210.00

    Karl August Böttiger, über den man oft, ohne ihn zu lesen, schreibt, wird hier als Autor ernst genommen.

  • Titurelby Wolfram von Eschenbach; Stephan Fuchs-Jolie; Helmut Brackert

    De Gruyter 2002; US$ 293.00

    'Titurel', a later offshoot of Wolfram von Eschenbach's 'Parzival', can be seen as one of the most enigmatic works in the history of German literature. With its highly complex form, the darkness of its language and imagery, and its fragmentary character, it is one of the most fascinating linguistic creations of the Middle Ages. This new... more...

  • Montierte Texte - hybride Heldenby Lydia Miklautsch

    De Gruyter 2005; US$ 210.00
