    Die mittelalterlichen Artusromane stehen in einer bereits Jahrhunderte andauernden Tradition des Erzählens von König Artus, das über volkssprachige wie lateinisch-historiographische Überlieferungen eine europaweite Verbreitung erlangte.

  • Der Schluss des "Parzival" Wolframs von Eschenbachby Michaela Schmitz

    De Gruyter 2012; US$ 130.28

    Der "Parzival" Wolframs von Eschenbach gilt als eines der bedeutendsten Werke der mittelalterlichen Literatur. Und doch ist dieses artifizielle und sprachgewaltige Epos für den heutigen Rezipienten nicht unmittelbar zugänglich, ihn trennen rund 800 Jahre von der ursprünglichen Produktions- und Rezeptionssituation. Der Stellenkommentar... more...

    Exeter University Press 2014; US$ 95.00

  • Nibelungenlied und Nibelungensageby Florian Kragl

    De Gruyter 2012; US$ 237.86

    Das Nibelungenlied zählt zu den zentralen Texten der deutschen Literatur des Mittelalters. Es ist einer der wenigen, die sich auch im kulturellen Gedächtnis unserer Zeit noch behaupten können. Konsequenz ist, dass die Forschungsliteratur zum Nibelungenlied und allgemein zur Nibelungensage vom Einzelnen kaum noch zu überblicken ist. Diesem Umstand trägt... more...

  • Titurelby Wolfram von Eschenbach; Stephan Fuchs-Jolie; Helmut Brackert

    De Gruyter 2002; US$ 227.00

    'Titurel', a later offshoot of Wolfram von Eschenbach's 'Parzival', can be seen as one of the most enigmatic works in the history of German literature. With its highly complex form, the darkness of its language and imagery, and its fragmentary character, it is one of the most fascinating linguistic creations of the Middle Ages. This new... more...

  • Montierte Texte - hybride Heldenby Lydia Miklautsch

    De Gruyter 2005; US$ 162.87

    Considered by researchers to be typical post-classical adaptations of medieval narratives and of lesser literary value, the poems about the Germanic hero Wolfdietrich are among the ?best sellers? of the Late Middle Ages. The author investigates the reasons for their success and reveals that the popularity of the texts lies in their unique... more...

  • Leiden lesenby Katharina Mertens Fleury

    De Gruyter 2006; US$ 173.73

    This study is an analysis of the facets of compassion in Wolfram's Parzival, which was written at the beginning of the thirteenth century. In order to grasp the actual meaning of compassio during this time, the analysis of the epic poem is preceded by additional examples from the High Middle Ages. These examples consist of excerpts taken... more...

  • Der Marnerby Eva Willms

    De Gruyter 2008; US$ 248.72

    The edition combines the texts by Der Marner, in his time a highly regarded representative of early Sangspruch poetry, translated and exhaustively commentated, with all documents referring to him and all the texts by 14th to 16th century poets - mostly anonymous - who composed new songs using his melodies and his verses with their own additions.... more...

  • Ulrich von Liechtensteinby Sandra Linden; Christopher John Young

    De Gruyter 2010; US$ 217.17

    Ulrich von Liechtenstein is the composer and author of numerous minne songs, writings on the theory of courtly love and a fictitious autobiography (as a servant of women).
