  • 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.

The traditional concept of drama has grown too restrictive and is in obvious need of revision. As... 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.

He was devoted to the three... more...
