Abstract

This book presents in comprehensive fashion the extraordinary development of "Ariadne auf Naxos" from its conception to the final operatic version. The unique collaboration of Hofmannsthal and Strauss is examined and the classical myths that served as a basis for the libretto are investigated. The detailed analysis and interpretation of both the text and the music demonstrate that this work is epochal in the history of early nineteenth-century opera and commands central importance in the overall production of its authors.

Abstract

Originally published in 1951, this collaboration of two accomplished translators resulted in the first English verse translation of a major work of German literature. Rather than a translation of the entire poem, in this volume the translators present key passages connected by prose summaries, and include an introduction giving an overview of the work and its historical and literary context.

Abstract

A news item concerning six German soldiers trapped for years in the army food storage bunker provided Rudolf Hagelstange with a plot and an effective symbol to express the tensions, emotions, and paradoxes of modern man's being. In this volume the poet Herman Salinger translates Hagelstange's poem into verse with the original German on facing pages. An introductory essay by Charles W. Hoffmann gives context on Hagelstange and the ballad.

Abstract

Through an analysis of the works of the Berlin Aufklärer Friedrich Gedike, Friedrich Nicolai, G. E. Lessing, and Moses Mendelssohn, Matt Erlin shows how the rapid changes occurring in Prussia's newly minted metropolis challenged these intellectuals to engage in precisely the kind of nuanced thinking about history that has come to be seen as characteristic of the German Enlightenment. The author's demonstration of Berlin's historical-theoretical significance also provides perspective on the larger question of the city's impact on eighteenth-century German culture. Challenging the widespread idea that German intellectuals were anti-urban, the study reveals the extent to which urban sociability came to be seen by some as a problematic but crucial factor in the realization of their Enlightenment aims.

Abstract

Otto Ludwig, nineteenth-century German novelist and critic, originated the term "poetic realism". In this excellent study, Ludwig's prose is sympathetically and thoroughly examined and a clear account of the evolution of German fiction after Romanticism is presented. Taking Ludwig's narrative works together with his literary criticism, McClain shows how the author attempted to blend the real and the ideal to reach the goal of poetic realism as he envisioned it.

Abstract

Relying on an edition of Novalis' notebooks which includes much of the author's scientific and philosophical musings, Neubauer's study evaluates Novalis' outline for a creative science and philosophical background of the eighteenth century. Concentrating on his study of physiology and medicine, this work illuminates Novalis' changing perspectives on the relationship between the imagination and the material world, and whether a synthesis between the two is possible.

Abstract

This volume is a study in the Romantic reshaping of space and time to evoke the fantastic interior landscape and the temporal dynamics of subjective experience. Close textual analysis is coupled with frequent reference to literary and intellectual history in the reassessment of the narrative art of Novalis and Tieck. The author examines Novalis' "Hyazinth und Rosenblüte", "Atlantis", "Arion" and "Eros und Fabel" as well as Tieck's "Der blonde Eckbert" and "Der Runenberg". A concluding chapter examines spatio-temporal patterns in the Romantic fairy tale at large.
