Abstract

A poetic English rendering of Rainer Maria Rilke's "Duineser Elegien" printed together with the original German on facing pages. The translation places high value on conveying the meaning of the Elegies, although it does not attempt to retain the original meter. An additional, detailed interpretive commentary will increase the English-speaking reader's understanding of Rilke's complex poetry.

Abstract

The novelty of this study lies in its techniques for understanding the deliberate narrative contradictions and elusive parody in Goethe's work. Interpretation of the entire "Unterhaltungen", including the Märchen, establishes Goethe's principles of cyclical composition. By pursuing the elaboration of these principles in the "Wanderjahre"—the undependable narrator, multiple perspectives, and parody of popular eighteenth-century figures—the author interprets the cultural and social significance of Goethe's most sophisticated novel.

Abstract

This book presents in comprehensive fashion the extraordinary development of "Ariadne auf Naxos" from its conception to the final operatic version. The unique collaboration of Hofmannsthal and Strauss is examined and the classical myths that served as a basis for the libretto are investigated. The detailed analysis and interpretation of both the text and the music demonstrate that this work is epochal in the history of early nineteenth-century opera and commands central importance in the overall production of its authors.

Abstract

This study presents interpretation and criticism of Catharina von Greiffenberg's "Geistliche Sonnette" (1662) with contrastive discussions of the process and structure of Gryphius' sonnets. The author uses an eclectic method to explore the sonnets as viable poetic constructs. She arrives at new conclusions on the nature of the two poets' gifts and on the peculiarities and possibilities of the sonnet as a short lyric form.
