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.

Sketches Of Art, Literature, And Character Read Books

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.
