Abstract

This correspondence is a firsthand record of a literary and personal friendship that spanned the years 1906 to 1931. It is significant for both its insights into the lives and works of these two important writers and for its information concerning the eventful time in which they lived. The previously unpublished aphorisms of Auernheimer serve as a means of introducing a writer who had long been unjustly neglected. The aphorisms demonstrate the similarities of the two men in their broad range of interests as well as in the depth and perceptiveness of their thought, and help to explain Schnitzler's high regard for his friend.

Abstract

Each of the nine essays in this illuminating study of "Der Nachsommer" focuses on heretofore overlooked details of the novel. As all the phenomena presented are oriented toward fulfillment of their highest potential, the novel emerges as a powerful assertion of the intent to achieve classical form in all things despite the ever-present threat of dissolution and chaos. With such emphasis upon the achievement of perfection, "Der Nachsommer" itself becomes a masterly exemplification of Stifter's concept Gestalt with its full ethical connotations.

Abstract

This study is an unorthodox approach to the origin, historicity, and authorship of the anonymous Icelandic sagas. Following the publication of her translation of the "Laxdœla Saga", in this volume Madelung uses her deep knowledge of the text to demonstrate the literary quality and aesthetic structure of the work, especially the function of repetition. She shows that the Saga contains a historical-political analogy between the period in which the story is set (the eleventh century) and the saga-author’s own time two centuries later. The apparently straightforward prose is camouflage, and the symbolism provides the key to the hidden analogy.

Abstract

In this study of the prose fiction of Das Junge Deutschland, the internal stresses and paradoxes of specific texts are examined and special attention is devoted to the unfulfilled strivings toward realism. Following an introduction to the young German problem, with special reference to Wienbarg, there are essays on Gutzkow, Mundt, Kühne, and, as a contrast, the major novels of Immermann. The essays attempt to enhance the understanding of the post-Romantic crisis in German literature.
