  • Die Reise ans Ende der Weltby Karl S. Guthke

    Narr Francke Attempto 2011; US$ 141.23

    Von Grenzen geht ein Reiz aus: was liegt daru¨ber hinaus? Wie aber, wenn es sich um die Erfahrung der "letzten Grenze" handelt? Eine Herausforderung an den Menschen, zu erfahren, wer er ist? Die Überraschung, daß das "Ende der Welt" vielleicht ihre Mitte ist? Eine definierende Erfahrung allemal. Oder hat Durs Gru¨nbein recht: es gäbe "keine fernen... more...

  • Die Germanophilenby Lucian Boia; Larisa Schippel; Julia Richter

    Frank & Timme 2014; US$ 64.89

    In der rumänischen Geschichtsschreibung hält sich bis heute ein Mythos: Zu Beginn des Ersten Weltkrieges hätten die Rumänen ? bis auf wenige Ausnahmen unter den Politikern ? einhellig das ?nationale Ideal? vertreten; man sei in den Krieg gegen Österreich-Ungarn eingetreten, um sich mit Transsilvanien vereinigen zu können. Die Presse und andere Dokumente... more...

  • Biographia Literariaby Samuel Taylor Coleridge

    The Floating Press 2009; US$ 3.99

    Samuel Taylor Coleridge's 1817 work Biographia Literaria is an autobiography in discourse; loosely structured and non-linear, the work is meditative and contains numerous philosophical essays. Initially criticized as the product of Coleridge's opiate-driven descent into illness, more recent critics have given the work far more credit and recognition.... more...

  • The Body in Swift and Defoeby Carol Houlihan Flynn

    Cambridge University Press 1990; US$ 44.00

    Carol Flynn's challenging approach reviews the cost of being human, the 'expense' of material as opposed to spiritual life in eighteenth-century society, as it is revealed in its literature. more...

  • ?Kubla Khan? ? Poetic Structure, Hypnotic Quality and Cognitive Styleby Reuven Tsur

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2006; US$ 165.00

    This book endorses Coleridge's statement: "nothing can permanently please which does not contain in itself the reason why it is so". It conceives 'Kubla Khan' as of a hypnotic poem, in which the "obtrusive rhythms" produce a hypnotic, emotionally heightened response, giving false security to the "Platonic Censor", so that our imagination is left free... more...

  • Coleridge, Schiller and Aesthetic Educationby Dr Michael John Kooy

    Palgrave Macmillan 2002; US$ 144.00

    This is the first book of its kind to consider at length Coleridge's relationship to his near contemporary, Friedrich Schiller. Contrary to received opinion, the author shows that Schiller's notion of 'aesthetic education' was indeed valuable to Coleridge at an early stage in his career and that it helped to shape much of his work - from his theory... more...

  • Untersuchung über die Prinzipien der Moralby David Hume

    Felix Meiner Verlag 2003; US$ 7.63

    Hume selbst hält diese Schrift (1751), die inhaltlich eine Neufassung des 3. Buches des Traktats (Über Moral) darstellt, in seinen autobiographischen Aufzeichnungen für "unvergleichlich viel besser" als alle seine anderen Schriften. Wohl deshalb, weil er hier vollbringt, was dort nur gefordert wurde: die strikte Loslösung der Ethik von der... more...

  • Selected Poemsby James K Baxter; Paul Millar

    Carcanet 2010; US$ 10.91

    James K. Baxter (1926-1972) is one of the twentieth-century's most remarkable poets, yet he has been too little regarded of outside his native New Zealand. In this innovative selection, Paul Millar, the expert on Baxter, gathers his most powerful and celebrated poems - political, lyrical and spiritual - with some of his more unexpected writings, including... more...

  • G.K. Chesterton’s Literary Influence on George Orwellby Luke Seaber

    The Edwin Mellen Press 2011; US$ 189.95

    Luke Seaber is the first author to study the influence of G.K. Chesterton on George Orwell. The book analyzes how Chesteron influenced Orwell’s novels and how Orwell misrepresented Chesterton because he was embarrassed by this fact. Seaber takes the Orwell-Chesterton relationship one step further by looking at the similarities found within each... more...
