"Very few men," said Bakunin, "have read as much, and, it may be added, have read as intelligently, as M. Marx." S.S. Prawer's highly influential work explores how the world of imaginative literature'poems, novels, plays'infused and shaped Marx's writings, from his unpublished correspondence, to his pamphlets and major works. In exploring Marx's use of literary texts, from aeschylus to Balzac, and the central role of art and literature in the development of his critical vision, Karl Marx and World Literature is a forensic masterpiece of critical analysis

Nosferatu--Phantom der Nacht by S. S Prawer( Book )

18 editions published between 2004 and 2013 in English and German and held by 375 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Werner Herzog's Nosferatu - Phantom der Nacht (1979) is one of the masterpieces of the New German Cinema of the 1960s and 70s. Adapted from Bram Stoker's Dracula, and mindful too of F. W. Murnau's earlier German film version of that same novel, Herzog's film is perhaps the most compelling screen treatment of the vampire myth. In this comprehensive account of Nosferatu, S. S. Prawer begins with discussion of Stoker's book, the cultural fascination with vampires, and the formation and evolution of Herzog's career. Taking the production history into account, Prawer ultimately foregrounds the cultural and aesthetic components of the film that combine to such powerful effect. This second edition features a new foreword by Brad Prager and original cover artwork by Matt Brand
Frankenstein's island : England and the English in the writings of Heinrich Heine by S. S Prawer( Book )

17 editions published between 1986 and 2009 in English and held by 366 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Professor Prawer's new book documents Heinrich Heine's lifelong involvement with England and the English. It shows him to have been a witty and intelligent observer of English men and women, institutions and politics, and books and journals of his own day; and to have extended his observation backwards into English history and literature of the past in a way that constantly welds the past to the present. The picture which emerges is one shaped by traditional preconceptions, political considerations, social philosophies and aesthetic experiences. The author (who is an authority on Heine) has amassed a vast amount of quotations; many of these passages have never been available in English before. The book will be an important reference work for scholars of nineteenth-century German literature and history; and, since all quotations are rendered in English, it will appeal to general readers interested in verbal caricature and in the changing image of England and the English in Europe
Between two worlds : the Jewish presence in German and Austrian film, 1910-1933 by S. S Prawer( Book )

13 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and held by 360 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book examines how a variety of German and Austrian films treat aspects of Jewish life at home and in the synagogue; Jewish interaction with fellow Jews in different cultural environments; and conflicts and accommodations between Jews and non-Jews at various times, ranging from the medieval to the contemporary. The author, one of the best known scholars in film history and criticism, offers the readers a rich panorama of the many Jews involved in all spheres of the cinema who as the author reminds us, together with their non-Jewish contemporaries, created a great industry and new forms of art."--Jacket

Israel at Vanity Fair : Jews and Judaism in the writings of W.M. Thackeray by S. S Prawer( Book )

9 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 236 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The book seeks, for the first time in any language, to combine Thackeray's many depictions of, and comments on, Jews and Judaism, from Old Testament times to his own present, into a coherent, chronologically ordered narrative. Texts and early versions that have not found their way into the collected editions are considered alongside well-known passages from Barry Lyndon, Vanity Fair, The Newcomes and Rebecca and Rowena. Since Thackeray illustrated many of his own works, graphic illustrations are as carefully chronicled and considered as narrative ones. The writings and drawings examined are set in a fourfold context: Thackeray's own life, psychological make-up, and developing art and opinions; the social history of Britain and its Jews; British and European literary and graphic conventions, traditions, and stereotypes; and the interplay of prejudice or animus with an essential British fairmindedness that strives to present as truthful a picture as the author's limited perspectives, or satiric and humorous purposes, will allow." "The book constitutes a substantial addition to the existing body of studies devoted to the image of Jews and Judaism in the work of influential non-Jewish writers and artists." "Readership: students of English literature, scholars in the field of Jewish studies, sociologists, historians and all who are interested in the interrelation of verbal and pictorial iconography."--Jacket

A cultural citizen of the world : Sigmund Freud's knowledge and use of British and American writings by S. S Prawer( Book )

11 editions published between 2009 and 2017 in English and held by 141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Based on an intensive study of the original German text of Freud's writings, letters and journals, S.S. Prawer's new book is the first to make a full and systematic map of Freud's use of work of British and American authors. The great psychoanalyst has long been acclaimed as a polymath, as a practical doctor who was also a theoretician, as a writer of non-fiction which was also a counterpoint to the great novels of the early twentieth century, and as an essayist who absorbed all of the cultural ambience in which he found himself." "Freud was fascinated by writings from many nations and languages, and his use of English shows the great range of his reading: from Shakespeare to Bernard Shaw, Henry Fielding to George Eliot, Mark Twain to Thornton Wilder; from scientific works by Maxwell and Darwin to the economics of Adam Smith, Malthus and Keynes, and from psychology and anthropology to the origins of religion. Though Freud's genius was unique, his sense of being a citizen of a world far wider than Vienna was not, and it can tell us much about the exchange of ideas across national and linguistic frontiers. Though he was a reader par excellence, he was also a case study in how world literature can be used by men and women who are not professional literary scholars or critics - and of how much it can come to mean to them, and for their sense of who they are."--Jacket
