  • Empfindsamkeitby

    De Gruyter 1991; US$ 182.00

    The discussion on the emergence of Empfindsamkeit has tended largely to ignore the lyric poetry of the period, although it may be said to be the first genre to take up and reflect this particular materialization of the Enlightenment. It displays close connections to the religious avant-garde of the period, with Pietist poetry being the first category... more...

  • Sturm und Drangby

    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.

  • Babylon und Jerusalemby Wolfgang Achnitz

    De Gruyter 2002; US$ 133.00

    The study analyzes strategies serving the constitution of meaning in »Reinfried and Apollonius«, proceeding from there to propose a new definition of what it is that significantly distinguishes romances on courtly love (Minne) and adventure from other verse romances. As specific expressions of aristocratic identity and existence, courtly love and knightly... more...

  • Thinking Poetryby Joseph Acquisto

    Palgrave Macmillan 2013; US$ 90.00
