Abstract

In the critical literature on Georg Büchner this monograph represents the first organic work devoted to the subject of the body – a pivotal issue for an understanding of his writings. The book investigates the significance assumed by the human body in three spheres of analysis: the political, the erotic and the scientific-philosophical. In the latter area the analysis hinges on the relations between Büchner's work and the writings of the three principal French materialist philosophers of the eighteenth century: La Mettrie, d'Holbach and Helvétius. The appraisal of this relation illustrates not only Büchner's appropriation of the legacy of ideas of French materialism, but also moments in which he satirises, sarcastically criticises or outrightly rejects certain central aspects of this vision of man and nature. From this analysis and the study of the political significance of the body and the erotic aspect, it emerges that the body, understood as Leib – human body, lived and living, the hub of subjective perception and experience – not only has a crucial function in the figurative layout of the literary works, but is also the focal point of Büchner's view of man, thus assuming a central importance both in the three areas examined and in the more strictly aesthetic sphere. This book won the Premio Associazione Sigismondo Malatesta "Opera Critica" - Letteratura, Teatro e Arti dello spettacolo - Edizione 2009.

Abstract

Since the beginning of reception, Büchner's epoch-making narrative Lenz was praised for its iconic quality, for the suggestive verbal mediacy of visual experience and the evocation of mental pictures. But so far research has paid no attention to the fact that this specific interrelation of language and image also strongly influenced the reception of the narrative in the fine arts. For the first time, this study analyses the complex relations between text and image in Lenz and its reception comprehensively, i.e. in consideration of the trias of literary communication: author, work and (artistic) reader. Firstly it is shown how the text-image-relations form the aesthetic fundament of the narrative as means of composition, but also as thematic, metareflexive element. Subsequently the different forms of imagery are analysed, which are generated in this way. The final part of the study presents illustrations based on Lenz and confronts them with the text. More than 700 pictures from 47 artists could be found, e.g. the expressive self-portraits of Walter Gramatté, Toyen's surrealistic compositions, the 'degenerative' etchings of Susanne Theumer or Thomas Kohl's landscape-representations.

Abstract

Denis Diderot’s development as a writer is characterised by his permanent endeavour to surpass his own technical achievements. This incessant search for constantly new styles of writing is not only an expression of his impressive artistic finesse, but also a constitutive element of his partially firm political objectives. This book draws attention to the political dimensions of Diderot’s virtuosity as a writer and examines in particular their productive reception in German-speaking countries.Denis Diderots Entwicklung als Schriftsteller ist geprägt von einer permanenten formalen Überbietung. Diese unablässige Suche nach immer wieder neuen Schreibweisen ist nicht nur Ausdruck einer beeindruckenden künstlerischen Raffinesse, sondern auch ein konstitutives Element seiner zum Teil dezidiert politischen Anliegen. Der Band lenkt das Augenmerk auf die politischen Dimensionen von Diderots schriftstellerischer Virtuosität und fragt insbesondere nach deren produktiver Rezeption im deutschsprachigen Raum.
