  • Lanzeletby Ulrich von Zatzikhoven; Florian Kragl

    De Gruyter 2013; US$ 32.35

    Lanzelet is an enigmatic work of Arthurian literature. Written around 1184, it is the second of the German Arthurian romances. Its lost French precursor may have been part of an ?old?, scarcely accessible Arthurian tradition, so Lanzelet is considered central to the early history of the genre. The student edition includes the text... more...

  • Irony and Humorby Leonor Ruiz Gurillo; M. Belén Alvarado Ortega

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2013; US$ 143.00

    This contribution focuses on three major aspects of the recently developed Corpus Interactional Humor (Corinth). First, it describes the socio-cognitive account of meaning, against the background of which the corpus is designed. Language use is basically a dynamic intersubjective process, in which interlocutors coordinate both their production and... more...

  • ,Vexatio dat intellectum'by Armin Brülhart

    De Gruyter 2014; US$ 97.16

    The verse poem The Ring written in around 1410 by Heinrich Wittenwiler is regarded as a highly paradoxical poetical work, because its content combines coarse peasant vulgarity with didactic gravitas. However, this does not by any means exhaust the contradictory nature of the poem. The present study pursues the aim of describing the poem?s... more...

  • The Mask and the Quillby Mary Helen Dupree

    Bucknell University Press 2011; US$ 72.99

    In the last three decades of the eighteenth century, a small but significant number of German actresses, including Sophie Albrecht (1757-1840), Marianne Ehrmann (1755-1795) and Elise BYrger (1769-1833), began to publish poetry, autobiography, drama and short fiction under their own names. These 'actress-writers' came of age at a time when the status... more...
