    This study picks up current debates about perspective and meaning in Wolfram von Eschenbach's »Willehalm«.

    De Gruyter 2002; US$ 133.00

    Jewish literature blossomed in Germany during the years 1933 to 1938.

  • ,Vexatio dat intellectum'by Armin Brülhart

    De Gruyter 2014; US$ 126.00

    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 most significant... more...
