Abstract

Arthur Schnitzler (1862-1931) and Hermann Bahr (1863-1934), two of the leading literary personalities in turn-of-the-century Vienna, maintained a friendship that lasted forty years. These letters contribute to an understanding of the life, times, and writings of both of these important authors and provide another perspective on the Jung-Wien group. This edition also includes Daviau's valuable annotations to the text, as well as brief biographies of figures mentioned in the letters. The introduction includes useful summaries of related texts not available for publication at the time.

Abstract

This study focuses on the striking relationship between one of the most important and enigmatic poets of the twentieth century and the art and artists of the Art Nouveau. The author explores the depth of the relationship itself, examines Rilke's activities as an art critic, and analyzes the profound influence of Art Nouveau upon the themes, motifs, and structure of the poet's early works.

Abstract

The book presents a series of interpretive readings of the "Römische Elegien", "Sonette", "Chinesisch-deutsche Jarhes- und Tageszeiten", several trilogies, and the shorter cycles of 1821, taking into account the variety of literary devices Goethe employs to link poems together into a cycle. The author examines Goethe's role in the history of the lyric cycle and, in stressing structural design, urges a reevaluation of the cycle's emergence as a standard poetic device.

Abstract

This study presents the historical development of topical drama in the German Democratic Republic from 1945 to 1975. The author investigates the sociopolitical function of both dramas and dramatists such as Karl Grünberg, Friedrich Wolf, and Erwin Strittmatter during the various transitional stages of the GDR's growth toward a socialist society. The substantive, critical study of plays, authors, productions, and dramatic theory is supplemented by a critical analysis of the Socialist Unity Party's cultural and literary policies during the GDR's turbulent history. While Western critics tend to isolate individual GDR dramas and interpret them out of context, Huettich explores in depth how the cultural policy of the GDR significantly helped shape the course of post-World War II drama in the 'planned society.'

Abstract

"Before Daybreak", the first important drama of German naturalism, was also the first play of Gerhart Hauptmann, the most significant naturalist of the theater. This translation by Peter Bauland (originally published in 1978) is the first colloquially convincing English version that captures the several levels of diction in this seminal modern drama. It is preceded by a critical introduction by the translator which places the play in historical context and discusses its form and content.
