  • Fatrasienby Ralph Dutli; Ralph Dutli

    Wallstein Verlag 2012; US$ 9.12

    Hauptbeschreibung Wer auf die "Fatrasien" stößt, traut seinen Augen nicht. Wie kann es sein, dass diese surrealistisch anmutenden, erstaunlich modern wirkenden absurden Sprachspektakel im tiefsten Mittelalter entstanden sind? Eine tollkühne Fantasie hat hier um das Jahr 1290 reimend Dinge zusammengebracht, die nie und nimmer zusammengehören. Sind... more...

  • Singing the Wayby Patrick Laude

    World Wisdom 2005; US$ 9.99

    Singing the Way explores the relationship between poetry and true contemplation.

    In this volume, Gronas addresses the full range of psychological, social, and historical issues that bear on the mnemonic existence of modern literary works, particularly Russian literature.

  • Romantic Thingsby Mary Jacobus

    University of Chicago Press 2012; US$ 36.00

    Our thoughts are shaped as much by what things make of us as by what we make of them. Lyric poetry is especially concerned with things and their relationship to thought, sense, and understanding.

    University of Chicago Press 2013; US$ 75.00

    What is poetry? Often it is understood as a largely self-enclosed verbal system—“suspended from any mutual interaction with alien discourse,” in the words of Mikhail Bakhtin. But in Poetry and Its Others , Jahan Ramazani reveals modern and contemporary poetry’s animated dialogue with other genres and discourses. Poetry generates... more...

    As we approach the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War, this timely reissue, first published in 1991, evaluates the function of poetry in wartime Europe, arguing that war poetry must be understood as a social as well as a literary phenomenon. As well as locating the work of well-known French, English and German war poets in a European... more...

  • Poetry as Testimony: Witnessing and Memory in Twentieth-century Poemsby Antony Rowland

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 140.00

    This book analyzes Holocaust poetry, war poetry, working-class poetry, and 9/11 poetry as forms of testimony. Rowland argues that testamentary poetry requires a different approach to traditional ways of dealing with poems due to the pressure of the metatext (the original, traumatic events), the poems? demands for the hyper-attentiveness of the reader,... more...

  • Poetik der Werbungby Urs Meyer

    Erich Schmidt Verlag 2009; US$ 53.79

    Das vorliegende Buch beschreibt das Wechselverhältnis zwischen Dichtung und Werbung als ein unfreiwilliges Zweckbündnis, das von gegenseitiger Anziehung und Abstoßung geprägt ist. Das kreative Selbstverständnis des New Advertising führte vor allem im Übergang vom 20. zum 21. Jahrhundert zur noch einmal verstärkten Anlehnung der Werbung an den Formenschatz... more...
