  • Eine Epoche im Umbruchby Christa Bertelsmeier-Kierst; Christopher Young; Bettina Bildhauer

    De Gruyter 2003; US$ 151.82

    The view generally adopted in earlier German literary studies saw the 12th century as an undisputed age of ground-breaking innovation, whereas the 13th century was generally regarded as an age of 'decline', of political and literary 'downfall'. However, recent developments in literary theory and the history of tradition have increasingly... more...

  • Novalis und die Wissenschaftenby Herbert Uerlings

    De Gruyter 1997; US$ 119.28

    Engagement with the sciences is an integral feature of Novalis' work. Hardly any other author in the Classic and Romantic period can match the intensity and competence of his concern with the achievements of contemporary research and the structural patterns underlying the organization of knowledge. This volume contains the papers delivered... more...

  • Erzählkunst und Volkserziehungby Walter Pape; Hellmut Thomke; Silvia Serena Tschopp

    De Gruyter 1999; US$ 151.82

    The articles in this volume live up to their declared aim to squarely approach the works of Jeremias Gotthelf (1797-1854) from the perspective of literary scholarship. They take an international angle on aesthetic, genre typological, theological, political and socio-historical aspects of his oeuvre. Outdated and erroneous verdicts are... more...

  • Androgyne Autorschaftby Silke Horstkotte

    De Gruyter 2004; US$ 119.28

    The present study examines authorship identity patterns in the works of Clemens Brentano (1778-1842), inquiring specifically into the function of poetological and transcendental-philosophical models of androgyny. The confusion of gender identities is observable not only in Brentano's fictional writings but also plays a significant role... more...

  • Klios Medienby Uwe Hebekus

    De Gruyter 2003; US$ 119.28

    The subject of this volume is historicist practice in the perception of history and the development that superseded it. Both Ranke and Droysen as well as Fontane in his texts on the war of 1870/71 assimilate their descriptive procedures to 19th-century public historical culture, which was based on a number of medial innovations. But by... more...

  • Ernst Moritz Arndt (1769-1860)by Arne Koch

    De Gruyter 2007; US$ 119.28

    Die Studien und Texte zur Sozialgeschichte der Literatur (STSL)  veröffentlichen seit 1975 herausragende literatur-, geschichts- und kulturwissenschaftliche Arbeiten zur vornehmlich deutschen Literatur vom Mittelalter bis zur Gegenwart.

  • Immanente Poetik und poetische Diätetik in Hölderlins Turmdichtungby Christian Oestersandfort

    De Gruyter 2006; US$ 119.28

    This volume is an attempt to provide a first comprehensive appreciation of Hölderlin's Tower Poems (the poems of his madness). It begins by reconstructing the poetology underlying them under the headings of imagery, landscape, space, and time. In addition the interpretations cast light on the dietetic and therapeutic aspects of this subjacent... more...

  • »Blüthenstaub«by Herbert Uerlings

    De Gruyter 2000; US$ 119.28

    »Blüthenstaub«, the title of the famous collection of fragments by Novalis, stands here for the entire oeuvre of the Romantic German poet Friedrich von Hardenberg (1772-1801). The volume documents the second congress of the International Novalis Society, which was devoted to the reception and impact of Novalis' work not only on literary... more...

  • Hymenby Nikolaus Nowak

    De Gruyter 1997; US$ 119.28

    With "Hymen", the ongoing historical-critical edition of Ferdinand von Saar's works arrives at the output from the author's old age. Physically ailing and frequently assailed by bouts of resignation, the Viennese author (1833-1906) was preoccupied even at this late stage with the subject of adolescent development and the choice of soul-mates.... more...
