  • Sturm und Drang: Göttinger Hain und Grenzgängerby

    De Gruyter 2002; US$ 182.00

    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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Raptorsby Toon Tellegen; Judith Wilkinson

    Carcanet Press Ltd. 2011; US$ 20.95

    With tragicomic bravado and psychological insight, this collection paints a turbulent portrait of a father and his family, creating a poetic sequence that has the scope of a novel and stretches the sense of what is possible in poetry. Each poem is presented as an improvisation on the theme of the father, forming a picture of a family held hostage... more...

    Vandenhoeck & Ruprecht 2010; US$ 57.40

  • Geordnete Spontaneitätby Jan Oliver Jost-Fritz

    Universitätsverlag Winter 2014; US$ 45.93

    Die Lyrik Achim von Arnims ist immer noch das Stiefkind der sonst recht regen Diskussion um Arnim im Besonderen und die Romantik im Allgemeinen. Seine Abwesenheit im Kanon romantischer Lyrik, eine nicht immer glücklich verlaufene Editionsgeschichte, aber auch der bisweilen etwas spröde Charakter vieler Gedichte selbst standen einer ausführlichen Auseinandersetzung... more...
