Abstract

In this 1954 study of poetic realism and the "Novelle" form, Silz examines nine "Novellen" by Brentano, Arnim, Droste-Hülshoff, Stifter, Grillsparzer, Keller, Meyer, Storm and Hauptmann. Through his textual interpretation of each of these works Silz draws the threads of the transition from Romanticism to Naturalism as well as the development of the "Novelle" form.

Abstract

Originally published in 1954, Hiebel's "Novalis" was the first critical evaluation in English of the life and works of Novalis (1772-1801), the German Romantic poet of the Blue Flower, since Thomas Carlyle's essay in 1829. This book presents not only a fully rounded picture of the man, the philosopher and scientist, the writer of beautiful fairy tales, the mystic poet of Christianity, but also a thoughtful commentary on one of the most influential and fruitful periods in German intellectual life. Hiebel combines the exactness required of the scholar with the creative writer's intuitive appreciation of a great poet's works.

Abstract

This study explores the question of Tieck's reception in and influence on the American literary scene before 1900, with the additional goal of shedding light on the reception in America of German Romanticism as a whole. Matenko investigates representation of Tieck in American magazines, books and text books, American translations of his work, his relationships with American authors including Poe and Hawthorne, and also includes a list of American books in Tieck's personal library.
