  • After 1945by Hans Gumbrecht

    Stanford University Press 2013; US$ 35.00

    What is it the legacy that humankind has been living with since 1945? We were once convinced that time was the agent of change.

    De Gruyter 2001; US$ 70.00

    Marc Blochs Plädoyer von 1927 für eine vergleichende Geschichte des europäischen Mittelalters war zwar unter seinen Schülern und Enkelschülern nie ganz in Vergessenheit geraten. Doch offenkundig mußte erst die westöstliche Spaltung des Kontinents im Kalten Krieg überwunden werden, damit neue, konzentrierte Anläufe zur Realisierung des umstürzenden... more...

    De Gruyter 2012; US$ 182.00

    Die Wertschätzung des mittelalterlichen Textes an seinem historischen Ort, den Handschriften, steigt beständig.

Da die Sortierung von Strophen... more...

  • Der Drache in der mittelalterlichen Literatur Europasby Timo Rebschloe

    Universitätsverlag Winter 2014; US$ 58.99

    Der Drache ist eine beliebte Figur der Literatur ? von der Antike bis heute. Er ist aber anscheinend auch ein Stereotyp: Er verkörpert bis heute das Böse, das Chaotische, das lebensfeindliche Prinzip und sogar den Teufel. Diese Arbeit fragt, welche Rolle speziell der mittelalterlichen Literatur bei der Deutung des Drachen zukommt. Unter Berücksichtigung... more...

  • Mark of the Beastby Alfredo Bonadeo

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    The First World War is a watershed in the intellectual and spiritual history of the modern world.

On the other, it brought forth a sense of futility and alienation that has since pervaded European thought. That cataclysmic experience... more...

  • Perspectives on Contemporary Literatureby David Hershberg

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    Today's music, painting, and film share with literature in the development of a new aesthetic, even as these other arts influence (and are influenced by) literary themes and structures. And at the same time the music and art of the past continue to re-echo in twentieth-century letters. The thirteen essays gathered here open a fine and varied view... more...

  • Perspectives on Contemporary Literatureby David Hershberg

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    In all parts of the world and in every age, many of the greatest works of literature have been shaped or inspired by the swirl of historical events. The wars, holocausts, and mushroom clouds of our own era haunt the pages of many twentieth-century writers; events of the past, even the remote past, also inspire many authors, though their work is contemporary... more...
