  • Entsagung und Routinesby Moritz Baßler

    De Gruyter 2013; US$ 140.00

    Why do the narratives of Poetic Realism often culminate in renunciation? And how did this German literary epoch finally come to an end? Is there any unity in the numerous ?isms? that took its place around 1900? This volume seeks to answer these questions in terms of historical processes. Individual studies present a structural model of realistic narrative,... more...

    Young, flame-haired Lucie raises horses on her father's farm. One summer day, she meets a dark, handsome stranger, Joseph, and it is love at first sight.

  • Nibelungische Intertextualitätby Gunda Lange

    De Gruyter 2009; US$ 168.00

    This study explores the very topical subject of intergenerational relationships in four heroic epics ("Kudrun" "The Great Rose Garden", "Biterolf and Dietleib", "Hürnen Seyfrid"), which make reference to the Nibelungenlied [Song of the Nibelungs] written around 1200, in particular to the figure of Kriemhild.

  • Look of Thingsby Carsten Strathausen

    The University of North Carolina Press 2003; US$ 77.95

    Examining the relationship between German poetry, philosophy, and visual media around 1900, Carsten Strathausen argues that the poetic works of Rainer Maria Rilke, Hugo von Hofmannsthal, and Stephan George focused on the visible gestalt of language as a means of competing aesthetically with the increasing popularity and "reality effect" of photography... more...

  • Komische Lyrik ? Lyrische Komikby Hans-Georg Kemper

    De Gruyter 2009; US$ 84.00

    The study refutes the prejudice that comic poems are inferior examples of the serious genre of lyric poetry. The comic deformations are actually produced by the very compression of the form and content of the serious poem; they come about as the result of the norms of the genre and exaggerations of fashions, styles and world-views, and in addition... more...
