Abstract

This handbook is based on the project "Österreichische Kinder- und Jugendbuchautorinnen" (Austrian WomenWriters of children's literature), which was defined as part of the project "biografiA. datenbank und lexikonösterreichischer frauen" (database of austrian women, http://www.biografia.at), localised on the Institute forScience and Art in Vienna. In the years 1999 to 2002 more than 800 women writers could be describedbiographically. Among them are many women, who wrote only one single book for children, there are someillustrators who decided to write also the text for their books and there are also some wellknown writers forChildren's books, like Christine Nöstlinger, Renate Welsh, Friederike Mayröcker and many others. There ist notime-limitation, so we have a good overlook of the whole production of children's literature in Austria. Austriameans by that way to be born in this land or to live here for more than 10 years. Many of the living authors sendt their curriculum vitae and also many experts on this field helped to fill up theentries. But there are great differences between the portraits of the women, differences in the length of the articles,in the presenting details of the lifes and also differences in their way to live, in their political behaviour and so on.Many of the authors had to flee from austria during the time of nationalsocialism because of their jewish origin ortheir political background. Some of them are nearly forgotten. They were murdered or had to emigrate in a landwith another language, the chance to be able to continue the writing career was very small. But we know somewomen who had the luck to continue the career. Alex Wedding is one of them, she founded with some otherwriters like Auguste Lazar the proletarian children's literature. Hertha Pauli is one of the women whose careerbegan in her exile, she began to write books for children in the USA. The biographs can be read as a part ofaustrian culture, as a piece of our own history.It is the intention of this handbook to encourage scientists to study more about the austrian women-writers ofchildren's books and to discuss their publications.

Abstract

Since the beginning of reception, Büchner's epoch-making narrative Lenz was praised for its iconic quality, for the suggestive verbal mediacy of visual experience and the evocation of mental pictures. But so far research has paid no attention to the fact that this specific interrelation of language and image also strongly influenced the reception of the narrative in the fine arts. For the first time, this study analyses the complex relations between text and image in Lenz and its reception comprehensively, i.e. in consideration of the trias of literary communication: author, work and (artistic) reader. Firstly it is shown how the text-image-relations form the aesthetic fundament of the narrative as means of composition, but also as thematic, metareflexive element. Subsequently the different forms of imagery are analysed, which are generated in this way. The final part of the study presents illustrations based on Lenz and confronts them with the text. More than 700 pictures from 47 artists could be found, e.g. the expressive self-portraits of Walter Gramatté, Toyen's surrealistic compositions, the 'degenerative' etchings of Susanne Theumer or Thomas Kohl's landscape-representations.

Abstract

The present monograph focuses on the history of Italian literature and language in Austria's Habsburg past, covering the period from the Peace of Campoformido between Napoleon and Francis II in 1797 to the end of the Habsburg monarchy in 1918. The study reveals that Italian court poetry was amazingly alive in the 19th century as it gradually had been adapted to the changes in the fields of politics, society, and the press. After analyzing the end of the golden era of Italian poetry in Austria, the author presents Archduchess Maria Beatrice d'Este and her literary circle. She was the last patroness of Italian artists and poets and kept up the old-style tradition of court poetry until her death in 1829. During the 19th century, however, this tradition faced an ever increasing popularization, with Italian language books and instruction getting more and more common. The Italian language was never discriminated against in the Habsburg monarchy. On the contrary, it was even extensively taught at universities because officials with a good command of Italian were needed both in the federal government and in the Italian regions of the monarchy. Moreover, the Habsburgs' language policy favored the publication of quality papers and literary magazines in Italian. The study also deals with Italian school books and anthologies for schools in the Italian parts of the monarchy, which were usually written and published in Vienna. In the last part of this chapter, records of the future Emperor Franz Joseph's Italian instruction are presented and analyzed on the basis of archive materials. Anachronistically, court poetry survived the 1848/1849 revolution and continued until World War I. The Emperor was popularized in jubilee editions, newspapers, and ceremonies, but also in the Italian poetry which was no longer of high quality, but still instrumental in presenting Franz Joseph as the "father of the nation".

Abstract

This comparative investigation is focused on the comparison of contents, themes, topics, motives, but also symbolism, stereotype situations, patterns of behavior etc. of sung and narrated oral text in South-east Europe. Great importance was given to bibliography, usually difficult to compile in a time-consuming process; a separate part at the end of the volume is dedicated to a bibliographie résonée, arranged according to countries and genres; this will facilitate further and more specific research in special fields of interest. This book offers for the first time a comparative survey of nearly all genres of the traditional oral folklore of Southeast Europe, independent from language, ethnic grouping, national boarders, religion and confessions; in this way the high degree of homogenity of the highly developed traditional oral culture in the historical Balkans is documented as well as the high numbers of variants and versions and the superb literary quality of these orally transmitted lingual manifestations, in some cases equal to the written literature of the region.

Abstract

Arbeitsfeld der Untersuchung ist die in der Literaturwissenschaft immer wieder statuierte oder stillschweigend akzeptierte ‚Romanlücke‘ in der deutschen Literatur des 18. Jahrhunderts, etwa vom Ende des Barockromans bis zum Erscheinen von Wielands „Agathon“ dauernd, von wenigen Ausnahmen wie Schnabel und Gellert noch akzentuiert. Nach einem eingehenden geschichts-, sozial- und kulturphilosophischen sowie literaturgeschichtlich kritischen Vorbericht folgt die Analyse ausgewählter deutscher Original-Romane zwischen 1740 und 1790 aus literaturtheoretischer, literaturwissenschaftlicher, sozial- und kulturwissenschaftlicher Perspektive mit derselben Eindringlichkeit, die man sonst den klassischen Werken des Kanons zu widmen pflegt. Sie richtet so den Blick auf die Landschaften der „wässerigen, weitschweifigen, nullen Epoche“, um gewahr werden zu lassen, dass dort nicht „alles unter einander ins Flache gezogen ward“ (Goethe).

Abstract

The present book consists of two parts, thus embodying the “two forces” that Bakhtin sees at play in every work of art: form and content. They are accorded equal weight. With regard to form, the book explores the various literary strategies employed by Doderer in his “Divertimenti,” in as much as they are inspired by musical forms. With regard to content the book focuses on the rather gloomy subjects that dominate the “Divertimenti.” The aim is to explore in how far these two aspects, i.e. musical form – a superstructure informed by musical aesthetics – and melancholic content – an oppressive atmosphere, the explicit foregrounding of experiences of depression – depend on each other. The book shows how they form a compelling whole.It is based on a variety of unpublished primary sources that have not been studied before, including an early fragment of “Divertimento No VI” („Erwachen fröhlicher Empfindungen bei der Ankunft auf dem Lande“) as well as diary sketches and draft outlines of the composition of the work. The book is thus able to comprehensively explore the musical techniques and strategies of musical composition of the “Divertimenti.” This thorough formal analysis provides new insights into what Steven Paul Scher has called an area of “comparative liminality” – that area in which the conditions are negotiated under which musical techniques can be transferred into “literature.”The “Divertimenti” belong to the world of Saturn. By focusing on melancholy and depression – topics that resonate throughout the Divertimenti and provide the dark undertone of the author’s later works – the book offers a new reading of Doderer’s work; it brings to light depictions of “deperceptive” states. This requires a new explanation of Doderer’s own theory of “apperception” and “deperception,” and of “first” and “second reality.” It will be offered in light of Kristeva’s “dark sun.” The book explores depictions of melancholy in a broader context and considers potential links between literary and clinical manifestations of melancholy.In view of the intellectual milieu of contemporary Vienna, the present study shows how deeply indebted Doderer’s early works are to Viennese Modernism – a quality that has been obstructed by the fact that most of these works were only published after Doderer’s death. This presupposes an appreciation of the Wiener Moderne which goes beyond the time span suggested by Gotthart Wunberg’s 1981 anthology, “Die Wiener Moderne. Literatur, Kunst und Musik zwischen 1890 und 1910,” instead drawing inspiration from “Wien 1880-1938. Die fröhliche Apokalypse,” a 1986 exhibition at the Centre Pompidou in Paris which, according to Jacques Le Rider, epitomizes the study of Viennese Modernism.Doderer’s receptivity for the intellectual, theoretical, and artistic movements of the turn of the 20th century is shown to be more pronounced than previously assumed. While the ambition of Doderer’s works ultimately transcends Viennese Modernism, a close exploration of the central tenets of this period can highlight various aspects of his early works, especially his uncompromising will to (musical) form.

Abstract

The impact of censorship on the political and intellectual climate in Austria between 1751 and 1848 can hardly be over-estimated. The book covers the institutions involved in censorship, its procedures and results represented by the lists of banned books, and the censors, authors, publishers, and book-sellers affected by bans. Ten case studies deal with selected literary genres and epochs, the appendix contains documents regarding censorship legislation and administration.

Abstract

The hitherto unpublished collection of South Slavic folk tales in German translation in the legacy of Friedrich Salomo Krauss (1859-1938), jewish-croatian ethnography, writer and sexologist, in Los Angeles, is on the one hand based on field-work materials, collected from oral sources during a research excursion in 1884-5 in Bosnia, Hercegovina and Dalmatia, on the other on translations of stories published in South Slavic journals of folklore and collections of oral narrations round the turn of the century of 1900. The translations are done in a literary style and the partly extended commentaries by Krauss are an important document of Viennese culture history and mentality in the first decades of the 20th century. Moreover, this collection documents the different ideological presuppositions for the starting phase of the emergence of Austrian Volkskunde/ethnography, which was from the very beginning internationally orientated, in close and specific connection to the folk culture of the countries in South Eastern Europe, and cultivated in a multidisciplinary way cross-contacts to ethnology, anthropology, psychology and jurisprudence.
