The student edition includes the text... more...

    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.

    Tectum Verlag 2014; US$ 22.70

    Ein Vierteljahrhundert nach dem Fall der Mauer sind viele Ostdeutsche noch immer nicht im neuen Deutschland angekommen.

Durch ihre DDR-Sozialisation haben viele Schwierigkeiten, ihr... more...
