Abstract

This volume will be a great aid to students and scholars alike in American literature, American thought, the history of ideas, and comparative literature. Stavrou draws from the entire bodies of work by Whitman and Nietzsche to explore the parallels in the authors' conceptions of paradox, the totality of life, and solitude among other themes in this exploration of the underlying philosophical similarities of these two great writers of the nineteenth century.

Abstract

The oldest medieval beast epic was translated literally into English prose for the first time in this volume, with Latin on facing pages. The introduction and commentary by Zeydel familiarize the reader with the history and value of the text and constituted a new approach, arguing for the inclusion of Latin literature composed in what is now Germany in the history of German literature.

Abstract

This is a penetrative and perceptive comparison of two of the most discussed novels of the twentieth century. Beginning with Camus' own appraisal of Kafka's work, the study convincingly analyzes the authors' fictive creations. Rhein is particularly intrigued by the function of time in the two authors' works, as well as their use of irony and the existentialist themes evident in their characters' pursuits. Through this exploration of theme and narrative devices, the author reveals these works as a reflection of the intellectual climate of twentieth century Europe.

Abstract

These six essays elucidate some of the more significant aspects of Storm's literary technique. The treatments of some of Storm's "Novellen", including "Am Kamin", "Aquis Submersus" and two versions of "Immensee", show how Storm used structure, symbolism, elements of tragedy and other narrative devices in his prodigious body of works of German Realism.
