Companion to the Literature of German Expressionism Camden House Inc

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

More than any other avant-garde movement, German Expressionism captures the aesthetic revolution of 20th-century modernity in all its contrasts and conflicts. In continuous eruptions from 1905 to 1925, Expressionism upset reigning practices in the arts, most vividly in painting and the visual arts. In the literature, a heady intellectualism combined with dramatic gesture, graphic visions, exuberant emotions and urgent proclamations to forge forceful styles of verbal expression. Expressionism introduced into art both visual and verbal a shockingly new intensity with many facets and many faces. This volume presents the literature of German Expressionism, which is far less known in the English-speaking world, with essays by leading scholars on Expressionism's philosophical origins, its thematic preoccupations, and its divergent stylistic manifestations by writers whose common bond is intensity and whose lines on the page read like the gouges of a woodcut: Georg Kaiser, Walter Hasenclever, and Ernst Toller in drama; Gottfried Benn, Georg Heym, Else Lasker-Schuler, and Georg Trakl in poetry; Alfred Doblin, Carl Einstein, and Carl Sternheim in prose, to name just a few. Against the background of the journals, exhibitions, and anthologies, the cafe meeting places and public life of Expressionism, the volume's highly focused, intrinsic analyses of texts and comprehensive overviews of extrinsic contexts (and of the most up-to-date research) shows the fervor and complexity of the period and its effulgent literary formations. Neil H. Donahue is Professor of German and Comparative Literature at Hofstra University.

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

IT seems a foolish thing to send into the world a book requiring a preface of apologies and yet more absurd to presume that any deprecation on the part of the author could possibly win indulgence for what should be in itself worthless. For this reason, and with a very deep feeling of the kindness I have already experienced from the public, I should now abandon these little volumes to their destiny without one word of preface or re- mark, but that a certain portion of their contents seems to require a little explanation. It was the wish and request of my friends, many months ago, that I should collect various literary trifles which were scattered about in print or manuscript, and allow them to be published together. My departure for the Continent set aside this intention for the time. I had other and objects in view, which still keep fuII possession of my mind, and which have been suspended not without reluctance, in order to prepare these volumes for the press -neither had I, while travelling in Germany, the sIightest idea of writing any thing of that country so far from it, that except during the last few weeks at Munich, I kept no regular notes but finding, on my return to England, that many particulars which had strongly excited my interest with regard to the relative state of art and social existence in the two countries appeared new to those with whom I conversed,-after some hesitation, I was induced to throw into form the few memoranda I had made on the spot, They are now given to the public in the first volume of this little collection with a very sincere feeling of their many imperfections, and much anxiety with regard to the reception they are likely to meet with yet in the earnest hope that what has been written in gerfcct simplicity of heart, may be perused both by my English and German friends, particularIy the artists, with indulgence that those who read and doubt may ba awakencd to inquiry, and those who read and believe may be led to reflection and that those who differ from, and those who agree with, the writer, may both find some interest and amusement in the literal truth of the facts and irnpressions she has ventured to record. It was difficuIt to give sketches of art, literature, and character, without making now and then some pesonal allusions but though I have often sketched from the life, I have adhered thoughout to this principle-never to give publicity to any name not already before the public, and in a manner publtc property. While writing this prefa.ce, I learn that the subject of the little sketch at the end of the first volume is expected to return to England beforc she has finally quitted her profession. The first impulse was, of course, to cancel those pages which were ,written long and under a far different impression, feeling that their purport might exposc either the gifted person alluded to, or the author to misconstruction.....

It was R.H Blyth's belief that "all that is good in European literature and culture is simply and solely that which is in accordance with the Spirit of Zen." He thereafter applied himself to the task of searching the writings of East and West in an attempt to discover that Spirit. Zen in English Literature and Oriental Classics embraces the classical literature of China and Japan and the whole extent of English literature, with numerous quotations not only from English but also from French, German, Italian, and Spanish writing. Don Quixote has a chapter all to himself, and the author considers him possibly the purest example in all of world literature of a man who lives by Zen. In English, the Zen attitude toward life is found most consistently in Shakespeare, Wordsworth, Dickens, and Stevenson. This book is essential reading for anyone interested in Zen, haiku, or indeed English literature. R.H. Blyth was born in London in 1898 and studied English literature at London University. He traveled extensively in the East before moving first to Korea and then Japan and teaching English at several universities. Blyth eventually became the English tutor to the Crown Prince of Japan. He also studied Zen Buddhism under Kayama Taigi Roshi. Blyth was interned during the war years, and it was during this time that he wrote his first book, Zen in English Literature. He went on to write numerous other books on Zen, haiku, senryu, and humor. Blyth was a man whose sensibility took root in two disparate cultures and found a harmony that he beautifully and effectively communicated in his writing.

Dictionary of German Biography v 9 Saur Verlag KG

Historia

The Dictionary of German Biography is the English-language version of the renowned Deutsche Biographische Enzyklopädie. It is a unique and comprehensive work containing biographies of some 56,000 people from the German-speaking world: covering individuals from Germany, Austria, Switzerland and other regions where German is or was spoken. Chronologically, the dictionary's coverage stretches all the way from the time of Charlemagne to the present day and includes only individuals whose life and works have come to an end. The Dictionary of German Biography was produced by a team of outstanding scholars headed by Editors in Chief Walther Killy and Rudolf Vierhaus. An advisory board made up of experts in individual fields ensured that the same rigorous standards were observed for all subject areas. More than 500 leading academics from around the world contributed articles for the Dictionary. This commitment to high academic standards has already made the Dictionary a standard work in Germany. Completed between 1995 and 2003, the 10 volume German version of the Dictionary of German Biography and its supplementary volumes provide the latest information in a unique, compact format, covering all persons from A to Z. It is the obvious choice for people wanting biographical information from a vast number of areas. Each entry opens with a concise biographical summary allowing the user to place the relevant individual immediately. These summaries consist of the person's surname (with all its variations), first name, Pseudonyms, maiden names and wrongly attributed names (where applicable), title, occupation and dates and places of birth and death. The articles themselves outline the most important events in the person's life, including details of education, significant encounters, career, family and friendships, associations, achievements, prizes and honours. For those wishing to study an individual in greater depth, the entries also contain bibliographical references to further literature on that person. The Dictionary of German Biography also contains approximately 1,000 extensive articles written specifically for this edition and signed by recognized experts on particularly significant people. The Dictionary of German Biography provides a wealth of fascinating information. For many it is an endless source of delight simply to browse from one entry to the next. Of course, all the world-famous Germans can be found here. Political leaders whose influence effected the world well beyond the bounds of modern-day Germany, such as Charlemagne, Frederick the Great, Bismarck and Hitler, are all covered in depth as are outstanding names from the world of science, such as Kepler, Copernicus and Einstein. You can find detailed articles on the great philosophers Kant, Hegel and Nietzsche, the composers Bach, Mozart and Wagner, writers such as Goethe, Kafka and Brecht, inventors such as Diesel and captains of industry such as Thyssen, Daimler and Krupp. The Dictionary of German Biography also contains numerous entries for people who despite great achievements remained relatively unknown or have since been forgotten. There are entries for Adolf Dassler, founder of the company Adidas, and Oskar Schindler, for example. All individuals covered in the Dictionary of German Biography, whether household names, or virtually forgotten people of earlier times, have one thing in common: they left their mark on an era and helped shape later developments. They are people who have influenced the past and present. The Dictionary of German Biography not only gives the latest information on the people we remember, it brings the past to life. The individual biographies have been put together to form a comprehensive history of German-speaking Europe. The Dictionary will therefore be of great interest to anyone who is interested in German history, culture and biographies. It will also be of interest to those specializing in one of the many subject areas in which the individual people covered here were influential well beyond the German-speaking world.

Many famous fairy tales are included here, making their first, influential appearance in English: 'The Fisherman and his Wife', 'Tom Thumb', 'The Elves and the Shoemaker', 'King Grisly-beard', 'The Juniper Tree', 'Hansel and Gretel', and 'Snow White'. Edited and introduced by renowned writer and authority on fairy tales, Jack Zipes, professor emeritus of German and comparative literature at the University of Minnesota. In addition to his scholarly work, he is an active storyteller in public schools and has worked with children's theaters in Europe and the United States.
