La historia de la literatura ha sido una disciplina intelectual que acepta sumisamente sus equívocas limitaciones; tanto es así, que su destino en la mayoría de los casos es convertirse en manual escolar, censo onomástico (es decir, nombres y fechas, descripciones tímidas y fugaces), catálogo inerte de títulos y autores. Los afanes críticos de la modernidad -rasgo que muy precisamente la define, según varios autores- han renovado de raíz las visiones conformistas de la literatura y han aportado un sentido más vivaz y polémico a las empresas culturales que con ella se vinculan. En este contexto se sitúa la obra monumental de Walter Muschg, que sin embargo lleva más allá de los "formalismos" y "contenidismos" críticos su percepción histórico-literaria de obras y autores; su Historia trágica de la literatura es una exploración en el perfil profundo del sentido de la literatura, una interrogación tenaz y pormenorizada de los hechos literarios, inscrita en la cultura bajo el signo de "lo trágico", noción que, según advertencia del autor, no excluye ni lo crítico ni lo histórico, sino que los asimila y trasciende.

Die drei Sprünge des Wang-lun : chinesischer Roman by Alfred Döblin( Book )

26 editions published between 1960 and 1989 in German and Undetermined and held by 533 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1915, fourteen years before Berlin Alexanderplatz, Alfred Doblin published his first novel, an amazing, extensively researched Chinese historical extravaganza: The Three Leaps of Wang Lun. Even more remarkably, given its subject matter, the book was written in expressionist style and is now considered the first modern German novel, as well as the first Western novel to depict a China untouched by the West. Based on actual accounts of a doomed rebellion during the reign of Emperor Qianlong in the late eighteenth century, the novel tells the story of Wang Lun, a historical martial arts master and charismatic leader of the White Lotus sect, who leads a futile revolt of the "Truly Powerless." Densely packed cities and Tibetan wastes, political intrigue and religious yearning, imperial court life and the fate of wandering outcasts are depicted in a language of enormous vigor and matchless imagination, unfolding the theme of timidity against force and a mystical sense of the world against the realities of power"--
