  • Carl Einstein und die europäische Avantgarde/Carl Einstein and the European Avant-Gardeby Nicola Creighton; Andreas Kramer

    De Gruyter 2012; US$ 126.00

  • Brechts NEUES LEBEN in der DDRby Andreas Klement

  • 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 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...
