Abstract

This volume provides an evaluation of the ideological significance of the Arminius trope in patriotic German literature. Beginning with the German Humanists and ranging through the works of Hutten, Lohenstein, J. E. Schlegel, Klopstock, Kleist, Grabbe and others. Kuehnemund tracks how Arminius has been deployed as a symbol of the German nation by major intellectual movements and at key points in German history leading up to the Second World War.

Abstract

This study traces the importance of Italy as a source of literary inspiration in the work of the Swabian poet Wilhelm Waiblinger (1804-1830), who spent the last four years of his life, the most prolific of his career, living and traveling in Italy. Drawing on Waiblinger's poems, travel accounts, letters and diaries, Thompson compiles and analyzes Waiblinger's thoughts on and engagement with Italian art, literature, music, people and landscapes as well as the themes of antiquity, Renaissance, and Catholicism.
