Abstract

Otto Ludwig, nineteenth-century German novelist and critic, originated the term "poetic realism". In this excellent study, Ludwig's prose is sympathetically and thoroughly examined and a clear account of the evolution of German fiction after Romanticism is presented. Taking Ludwig's narrative works together with his literary criticism, McClain shows how the author attempted to blend the real and the ideal to reach the goal of poetic realism as he envisioned it.

This first complete modern edition of Peter Schott's "Lucubraciunculae" opened a treasure-trove of information to students of German literature, historians of Humanism, folklorists, and theologians on its publication in 1963. Also included in this volume are the "De mensirus syllabarum epithoma" and a letter in German to Schott's sister Anna. Schott's works shed light on social, historical and religious questions of the time and are valuable documents of the Northern Renaissance.

Abstract

Using previously unpublished and neglected sources, this 1963 study of the critical decade in the philosopher's development that culminated in "The Birth of Tragedy" in 1871 fully exploited for the first time the extensive record of Nietzsche's musical compositions and clarifies his traditionally obscure relations to Wagner.
