  • Leben in Szenenby Ronald Hitzler; Arne Niederbacher

    VS Verlag für Sozialwissenschaften 2010; US$ 18.87

    Szenen sind 'wolkige' Formationen: Sie sind ständig in Bewegung und ändern fortwährend ihre Gestalt. Aus der Ferne scheinen die Ränder scharf zu sein und eine klare Gestalt zu ergeben.

  • Lanzeletby Ulrich von Zatzikhoven; Florian Kragl

    De Gruyter 2008; US$ 42.00

    Lanzelet is an enigmatic piece of Arthurian literature. Composed soon after 1194, it is the second German Arthurian romance.
