  • Small Towns in Recent American Crime Fictionby David Geherin

    McFarland & Company, Inc., Publishers 2015; US$ 40.00

    Small towns have long been a commonplace setting in crime and mystery fiction, but usually only in cozy mysteries. The crimes in these novels typically are solved by amateur sleuths like Agatha Christie's Miss Marple, whose efforts restore tranquility to a quiet community. But in recent years writers of realistic crime fiction have discovered fresh... more...

  • Besonders normalby Minka Wolters

    Ch. Links Verlag 2015; US$ 9.08

    Inklusion bedeutet, dass jeder Mensch - behindert oder nicht behindert - selbstbestimmt am gesellschaftlichen Leben teilhaben kann. Nur welche Strukturen müssen dafür geschaffen werden? Wie viel Kampf, Mut und Unterstützung gehören dazu? Wo muss der Einzelne umdenken? Dazu hat Minka Wolters viele Betroffene, Menschen aus ihrem Umfeld und Fachleute... more...

  • Wiener Moderne: Diskurse und Rezeption in Russlandby Gennady Vasilyev

    Frank & Timme 2015; US$ 63.65

    Die Kultur der Moderne markiert die Wende vom 19. zum 20. Jahrhundert. Sie äußert sich vor allem in der Empfindung des Geistes, in politischen Weltanschauungen, in der Persönlichkeitsentwicklung und in den Sprachbeziehungen. Sichtbar wird das in den neuen Diskursen um Schöpfung, Judentum, Spiel, Liebe und Tod. Diese manifestieren sich in der Literatur... more...

  • Gestalten und Geschichten der Hebräischen Bibel im Spiegel der Literatur des 20. Jahrhundertsby Hans-Christoph Goßmann; Joachim Liß-Walther

    Traugott Bautz 2015; US$ 30.92

    Zu Geschichten und Gestalten der Bibel haben Menschen im Laufe der Geschichte immer wieder ihren je eigenen Zugang gesucht und auch gefunden. Solche Zugänge begegnen in der bildenden Kunst ebenso wie auch in der Literatur. In diesem Buch sind 14 Vorträge dokumentiert, in denen gezeigt wird, wie Gestalten und Geschichten der Hebräischen Bibel, des... more...

  • The Age of the Crisis of Manby Mark Greif

    Princeton University Press 2015; US$ 29.95

    In a midcentury American cultural episode forgotten today, intellectuals of all schools shared a belief that human nature was under threat. The immediate result was a glut of dense, abstract books on the ?nature of man.? But the dawning ?age of the crisis of man,? as Mark Greif calls it, was far more than a historical curiosity. In this ambitious... more...

  • "Das Gepräge des Außerordentlichen"by Hartmut Steinecke

    Erich Schmidt Verlag 2015; US$ 36.20

    Der 18-jährige Harry Heine schenkte seiner Cousine Fanny 1816 E.T.A. Hoffmanns Roman ?Die Elixiere des Teufels?. Der Fund dieses Dedikationsexemplars im Jahr 1979 blieb in der Forschung fast unbeachtet, die sich mit Heines Hoffmann-Lektüren und deren Bedeutung für sein Romantikverständnis ohnehin nur peripher befasste. Dabei bekannte Heine, dass er... more...

  • Black Male Fiction and the Legacy of Calibanby James W. Coleman

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 45.00

    With The Tempest 's Caliban, Shakespeare created an archetype in the modern era depicting black men as slaves and savages who threaten civilization. As contemporary black male fiction writers have tried to free their subjects and themselves from this legacy to tell a story of liberation, they often unconsciously retell the story, making their heroes... more...

  • The Social Selfby Joseph Alkana

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 40.00

    American literary history of the nineteenth-century as a conflict between individualistic writers and a conformist society. In The Social Self, Joseph Alkana argues that such a dichotomy misrepresents the views of many authors. Sudden changes caused by the industrial revolution, urban development, increased immigration, and regional conflicts... more...

  • Naturalism in American Fictionby John J. Conder

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    In this closely reasoned study, John J. Conder has created a new and more vital understanding of naturalism in American literature. Moving from the Hobbesian dilemma between causation and free will down through Bergson's concept of dual selves, Conder defines a view of determinism so rich in possibilities that it can serve as the inspiration of literary... more...

  • Hicks, Tribes, and Dirty Realistsby Robert Rebein

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 30.00

    Robert Rebein argues that much literary fiction of the 1980s and 90s represents a triumphant, if tortured, return to questions about place and the individual that inspired the works of Hawthorne, Melville, Twain, Faulkner, and other giants of American literature. Concentrating on the realist bent and regional orientation in contemporary fiction, he... more...
