Abstract

This thorough study of the moral values of the "Nibelungen" and of their paradoxical behavior posits the work as an indictment of a society that results time and again in collective human tragedy. Told with tragic insight, yet sympathetically, the epic may well be described as the story of man, the victim of himself. Mueller analyzes the work in three chapters, focused on substance, essence and significance, in order to make the epic poem relevant to a modern audience.

Abstract

A news item concerning six German soldiers trapped for years in the army food storage bunker provided Rudolf Hagelstange with a plot and an effective symbol to express the tensions, emotions, and paradoxes of modern man's being. In this volume the poet Herman Salinger translates Hagelstange's poem into verse with the original German on facing pages. An introductory essay by Charles W. Hoffmann gives context on Hagelstange and the ballad.

Abstract

From Madame de Staël, Dumas, and Taine, to Giraudoux, Adamov, Ionesco, and the existentialists, this study provides a fascinating account of the progress of Kleist's reception in France from complete rejection in 1807 to spectacular critical and public acclaim in the 1950s. Richardson argues that Kleist's success in France disproves the traditional idea that his work is "unexportable" and shows the conditions that led to his positive reception outside Germany.

Abstract

Originally published in 1962, Robert Lichtenstein's translation of "King Rother" made the medieval epic available to English-speaking audiences for the first time. His translation in rhymed couplets seeks to convey the humorous spirit of the original and an introduction places the poem in its historical context.

First published as an American contribution to the 1959 bicentennial celebration of Friedrich Schiller's birth, Krumpelmann's translation of the poet's Joan of Arc drama retains the iambic pentameter of the original.
