Abstract

This translation of all the poems in the main body of the work of George extensively revises the first publication of "The Works of Stefan George" which appeared in 1949. The editors have also expanded the volume, adding a number of George's early poems under the collective title "Drawings in Grey", two essays (including the eulogy on Hölderin), and the lyrical drama "The Lady's Praying" along with a commentary by the translators.

Abstract

To the medievalist, Tannhäuser is the author of ironical and highly original lyrical verse, to the folklorist, the subject of one of Germany's oldest ballads to the musicologist, the composer of the only extant music for a "Tanzleich" and the hero of several operas. J. W. Thomas examines the content and style of Tannhäuser's verse, discusses his sources and his influence on other medieval poets, and gives a history of the ballad material in which he appears. Also included is a diplomatic edition of Tannhäuser's poems, both verse translations of the poems and a version of the ballad, and an extensive bibliography.

Abstract

These essays represent the push to provide interdisciplinary Brecht research to English-speaking audiences following his death in 1956 and offer novel readings of his works indicative of the major literary questions of the time. The essays explore both Brecht's theoretical approach and political thought, with many also taking a comparative approach to analysis of individual plays. The contributors are Reinhold Grimm, Karl-Heinz Schoeps, Herbert Knust, Hans Meyer, Siegfried Mews, Raymond English, James Lyon, Darko Suvin, Gisela Bahr, Grace Allen, Ralph Ley, John Fuegi, Andrzej Wirth and David Bathrick.
