These 'actress-writers' came of age at a time when the status... more...

  • Lanzeletby Ulrich von Zatzikhoven; Florian Kragl

    De Gruyter 2008; US$ 629.00

    Lanzelet is an enigmatic piece of Arthurian literature. Composed soon after 1194, it is the second German Arthurian romance. It was based on a French model, now lost, which could have been part of an "old" hardly accessible Arthurian tradition, so that Lanzelet is a key text in the early history of Arthurian romance. In addition, however, its fascinating... more...

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

    De Gruyter 2002; US$ 280.00

    '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 edition, with... more...
