    Ingeborg Bachmann?s Berlin speech Ein Ort für Zufälle (?A Place for Coincidences?), given on the occasion of accepting the Georg Büchner prize in 1964, remains an enigmatic, difficult to classify document of post-war German-language literature, and has been the subject of considerable controversy. The present commentary provides an introduction to... more...

  • Der nicht mehr dramatische Theatertextby Gerda Poschmann

    De Gruyter 1997; US$ 133.00

    Literary studies and stage practitioners alike frequently display a certain bafflement in the face of contemporary stage-plays. The relation between text and theatre has undergone as sweeping a change as have the ideas on what makes a play 'theatrical'. The traditional concept of drama has grown too restrictive and is in obvious need of revision. As... more...

  • Parodie und parodistische Schreibweise in Thomas Manns »Doktor Faustus«by Inken Steen

    De Gruyter 2001; US$ 133.00

    Although parody is central to the famous 'encounter with the Devil', the 'ironical German''s novel has generally been held to be anything but parodistic. But if we eschew normative thinking on genres, parodistic writing reveals itself to be highly varied in perspective. It enhances readability and at the same time enables narrative discourse to reflect... more...

  • Duino Elegiesby Rainer Maria Rilke; Stephen Cohn; Elizabeth Frink

    Carcanet 2012; US$ 14.51

    With all his contradictions, Rainer Maria Rilke (1875-1926) is one of the fathers of modern literature and the Duino Elegies one of its great monuments. Begun in 1912 but not completed until 1922, they are 'modern' in almost every sense the word has acquired; yet Rilke was by temperament anti-modern, a snob and a romantic. He was devoted to the three... more...

  • Männlichkeit als Eigenschaftby Ulrich Boss

    De Gruyter 2013; US$ 140.00

    This study examines the ways that Robert Musil?s representations of gender roles and conflicts are symptomatic of the crisis confronting all existing models of masculinity as ?The Man without Qualities? was written. The study focuses on demonstrating the contradictions and interplay between very different texts and discourses, incl. perspectives from... more...
