Abstract

Heinrich Wittenwiler's "Ring", written in a Swiss dialect and presented in English translation for the first time in this 1956 volume, is a comic-didactic and religious allegory that documents late medieval views on many aspects of literature, history, law and religion. Besides his translation of "Ring", Jones adds an exposition on the text as well as a translation of the Middle Scots poem "Colkelbie Sow" with a comparative analysis of the two works.

Abstract

By analyzing Chrétien's "Cligès", Ulrich von Zatzikhoven's "Lanzelet", Chrétien's "Chevalier de la Charette", and the Old French "Prose Lancelot", as well as Andreas Capellanus' "De Amore" and Eschenbach's "Parzival", Weigand presents a picture of the ideals of courtly love in Europe in the latter half of the twelfth and beginning of the thirteenth centuries. A long chapter on "Parzival" focuses especially on the introduction of Christian themes and changing ideas of the compatibility of love and marriage.

Abstract

This survey of the literary treatment of musicians in German novels and novellas begins with the Romantics and ends with the publication of Thomas Mann's "Doktor Faustus". Schoolfield explores the work of a large selection of writers, including Hoffmann, Tieck, Kleist, Brentano, Grillparzer, Werfel and Hesse among many others. Through these works he tracks the progression of the figure of the musician as professional, artist, genius, composer, and pedagogue and how the pursuit of their art is interpreted by major literary movements.
