  • 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...

  • Weibliche Wende-Biografienby Loreen Lesske

    Tectum Verlag 2014; US$ 23.68

    Ein Vierteljahrhundert nach dem Fall der Mauer sind viele Ostdeutsche noch immer nicht im neuen Deutschland angekommen. Insbesondere Frauen, die die Wende im jungen Erwachsenenalter miterlebt haben, fällt die Selbstverortung im Gesellschaftssystem der Bundesrepublik bis heute oft schwer. Durch ihre DDR-Sozialisation haben viele Schwierigkeiten, ihr... more...

  • Lanzeletby Ulrich von Zatzikhoven; Florian Kragl

    De Gruyter 2013; US$ 629.00

    Der Lanzelet ist ein rätselhaftes Stück Artusliteratur. Entstanden um 1194, ist er der zweite deutsche Artusroman. Seine verlorene französische Vorlage könnte Teil einer ?alten?, kaum greifbaren Artustradition gewesen sein, sodass der Lanzelet zentral für die Frühgeschichte des Genres ist. Die Studienausgabe bietet Text und Übersetzung... more...

  • ,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... more...
