  • Eine Unbekannte aus der Seine / Hin und herby Ödon von Horváth; Martin Vejvar; Nicole Streitler-Kastberger

    De Gruyter 2012; US$ 489.00

    Mit den beiden Stücken Eine Unbekannte aus der Seine (1933) und Hin und her (1934) lotet Horváth in politisch prekären Zeiten die Möglichkeiten der Komödienform nach zwei Richtungen aus. Eine Unbekannte aus der Seine schließt an seine großen Volksstücke an, doch verleiht der Autor der ?Komödie? eine noch stärkere tragische Grundierung. Erstmals werden... more...

  • Ingeborg Bachmanns 'Ein Ort für Zufälle'by Christian Däufel

    De Gruyter 2013; US$ 182.00

    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...

  • Joseph Roth - Zur Modernität des melancholischen Blicksby Wiebke Amthor; Hans Richard Brittnacher

    De Gruyter 2012; US$ 133.00

    The literary oeuvre of Joseph Roth (1884?1939) presents and focuses on the disastrous political changes of the first half of the 20th century like few others. The present volume compiles contributions that inquire the modernity of an author who has been mostly perceived as a traditionalist by literary scholars. The essays follow the fissures in his... more...

  • Anatolby Evelyne Polt-Heinzl; Isabella Schwentner

    De Gruyter 2012; US$ 881.00

    Following on from Lieutenant Gustl, the second volume of the historical-critical edition of Arthur Schnitzler?s early work presents Anatol.

  • Stefan Zweig Reconsideredby Mark H. Gelber

    De Gruyter 2007; US$ 133.00

    This volume is comprised of 14 contributions, which are revised and expanded versions of lectures held at an international conference on Stefan Zweig that took place in Israel in 2004.

  • 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...

  • Verwandlungen in Hofmannsthals Lyrikby Andreas Thomasberger

  • 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...
