  • Raptorsby Toon Tellegen; Judith Wilkinson

    Carcanet 2011; US$ 18.89

    With the economy of proverbs and the psychological insight of a novel, Toon Tellegen?s acclaimed sequence Raptors depicts the dynamics of a family held hostage by the mood-swings and histrionics of a father, a figure both comic and terrifying, grotesque and pathetic. Tellegen?s mercurial imagination evokes the dark archetypes of European folklore... more...

  • Alchemie und Poesieby Joachim Telle; Wilhelm Kühlmann; Didier Kahn

    De Gruyter 2013; US$ 238.00

    The studies presented in ?Alchemy and Poetry? constitute an 'alchemical Parnassus' without parallel in the historiography of literature in the German language.

  • Sturm und Drang: Göttinger Hain und Grenzgängerby

    De Gruyter 2002; US$ 168.00

    The verse of the young Goethe has generally been taken as paradigmatic for the poetry of the Sturm und Drang period. This has led to almost total neglect of the remarkable poetry by Lavater and Herder, Lenz and Stolberg, Karschin and Voss, Schubart's religious verse, and the poetical works of the young Schiller. The present volumes cast a new light... more...

  • Wissen in Literatur im 19. Jahrhundertby Friedrich Vollhardt; Lutz Danneberg; Jörg Schönert; Hartmut Böhme

    De Gruyter 2002; US$ 154.00

    The theme of this volume, 'knowledge in literature', refers not to the way in which literature communicates cultural phenomena, events, and norms regulating or reflecting everyday action and behaviour. Instead, it focuses on the 'new knowledge' about nature and the human animal produced (or rejected) in individual branches of science and learning since... more...
