  • Performance and Femininity in Eighteenth-Century German Women's Writingby Wendy Arons

    Palgrave Macmillan 2006; US$ 100.00

    In this book, Wendy Arons examines how women writers used theater and performance to investigate the problem of female subjectivity and to intervene in the dominant discourse about ideal femininity. Arons shows how contemporary demands for sincerity and authenticity placed a peculiar burden on women in the public sphere, especially on actresses, who... more...

    De Gruyter 2008; US$ 196.00

    Wolfram von Eschenbach's Willehalm is one of the most-discussed German poetic texts from the High Middle Ages. To date, researchers have been unable to agree how to read this text - as a plea for the ideology of the Crusades, for tolerance or even for humanity. The present study seeks new answers to these important questions by evaluating the text... 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 most significant... more...

  • Figuren des Messianischen in Schriften deutsch-jüdischer Intellektueller 1900-1933by Elke Dubbels

    De Gruyter 2011; US$ 154.00

  • The Mask and the Quillby Mary Helen Dupree

    Bucknell University Press 2011; US$ 69.99

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