Abstract

Proofs of Genius: Collected Editions from the American Revolution to the Digital Age is the first extensive study of the collected edition as an editorial genre within American literary history. Unlike editions of an author’s “selected works” or thematic anthologies, which clearly indicate the presence of non-authorial editorial intervention, collected editions have typically been arranged to imply an unmediated documentary completeness. By design, the collected edition obscures its own role in shaping the cultural reception of the author.In Proofs of Genius, Amanda Gailey argues that decisions to re-edit major authorial corpora are acts of canon-formation in miniature that indicate more foundational shifts in the way a culture views its literature and itself. By combining a theoretically-informed approach with a broad historical view of collected editions from the late eighteenth century to the present (including the rise of digital editions), Gailey fills a gap in the textual scholarship of the editing history of major figures like Emily Dickinson and Walt Whitman and of the American literary canon itself.

Abstract

Hermann Kurz (1813–1873) was among the founders of German historical, realistic, and social narrative in the period before the March Revolution of 1848. The study uses innovative textual interpretation to evaluate the whole continuum of his early works through all genres. It reveals Kurz’ use of a poetics derived from both contemporary literature (Schiller, Uhland, Schwab, and Mörike) and earlier works (Gottfried von Straßburg, Grimmelshausen).

Abstract

Language of the Snakes traces the history of the Prakrit language as a literary phenomenon, starting from its cultivation in courts of the Deccan in the first centuries of the common era. Although little studied today, Prakrit was an important vector of the kāvya movement and once joined Sanskrit at the apex of classical Indian literary culture. The opposition between Prakrit and Sanskrit was at the center of an enduring “language order” in India, a set of ways of thinking about, naming, classifying, representing, and ultimately using languages. As a language of classical literature that nevertheless retained its associations with more demotic language practices, Prakrit both embodies major cultural tensions—between high and low, transregional and regional, cosmopolitan and vernacular—and provides a unique perspective onto the history of literature and culture in South Asia.

Abstract

Lebenskunst hat Konjunktur: Offenbar ist der Traum, das Leben als Gesamtkunstwerk einzurichten, zur ethischen Maxime geworden. Beteiligt ist dabei seit der Antike das Motiv von Selbsterforschung bzw. Selbstbesserung, das über die Frühe Neuzeit bis in die Gegenwart wirksam geblieben ist. Tagebücher sind dabei ein notwendiges Begleitmedium gewesen und haben wechselhafte Formen angenommen, die von religiösen, wirtschaftlichen, psychologischen und medizinischen Aufschreibesystemen bestimmt worden sind. In diesem umfassenden mediologischen Sinn untersucht der Autor Programme der Selbstschrift und stellt diese an Beispielen dar, die sich von Pacioli über Pepys, Leibniz, Herder, Moritz, Goethe, Hebbel, Schmitt, Jünger oder Rainald Goetz bis in die Gegenwart der Social Media erstrecken.

Abstract

Joost van den Vondel (1587-1679) was the most prolific poet and playwright of his age. During his long life, roughly coincinding with the Dutch Golden Age, he wrote over thirty tragedies. He was a famous figure in political and artistic circles of Amsterdam, a contemporary and acquaintance of Grotius and Rembrandt, but in general well acquainted with Latin humanists, Dutch scholars, authors and Amsterdam burgomasters. He fuelled literary, religious and political debates. His tragedy 'Gysbreght van Aemstel', which was played on the occasion of the opening of the stone city theatre in 1638, was to become the most famous play in Dutch history, and can probably boast holding the record for the longest tradition of annual performance in Europe. In general, Vondel’s texts are literary works in the full sense of the word, complex and inexhasutive; attracting attention throughout the centuries. &#xD;Contributors include: Eddy Grootes, Riet Schenkeveld-van der Dussen, Mieke B.

Abstract

In the 17th and 18th centuries, language and linguistic reflections were a central determinant of the discursive relationship between mathematics, physics, logic, and literature. The volume traces these constellations, examining linguistic, technical, and poetological texts to reveal the close connections between the language of literature, poetology, and scientific discourse.

Abstract

"The aim of this collection is to make possible the forging of a more robust, politically useful, and theoretically elaborate understanding of working-class literature(s). These essays map a substantial terrain: the history of working-class literature(s) in Russia/The Soviet Union, The USA, Finland, Sweden, The UK, and Mexico. Together they give a complex and comparative – albeit far from comprehensive – picture of working-class literature(s) from an international perspective, without losing sight of national specificities.&#xD;By capturing a wide range of definitions and literatures, this collection gives a broad and rich picture of the many-facetted phenomenon of working-class literature(s), disrupts narrow understandings of the concept and phenomenon, as well as identifies and discusses some of the most important theoretical and historical questions brought to the fore by the study of this literature.&#xD;If read as stand-alone chapters, each contribution gives an overview of the history and research of a particular nation’s working-class literature. If read as an edited collection (which we hope you do), they contribute toward a more complex understanding of the global phenomenon of working-class literature(s)."
