The inward turn of narrative by Erich Kahler( Book )

24 editions published between 1970 and 2017 in English and held by 712 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Erich Kahler sees cultural history as a subtle process in which reality plays upon consciousness and consciousness itself is forever transforming reality. He traces the ebb and flow of this relationship by studying changes in narrative form from its beginnings in the Gilgamesh Cycle to the end of the eighteenth century. The general direction is toward a growing inwardness, he finds; what takes place is an expansion of consciousness as man constantly draws outer space, the contents of a more and more complex world, into what Rilke called Weltinnenraum, "inner space."Originally published in 1973.The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press.

Briefwechsel 1910-1931 : mit Auszügen aus dem Briefwechsel Friedrich Gundolf--Fine von Kahler by Friedrich Gundolf( Book )

10 editions published in 2012 in German and held by 138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Das Briefgespräch zweier junger Gelehrter und einer ihnen eng verbundenen imponierenden jungen Frau - Fine von Kahler. Zu Beginn ihrer Freundschaft arbeitete Erich von Kahler in Wien noch an seiner Dissertation, während Friedrich Gundolf in Heidelberg sein Shakespeare-Buch schrieb. Gundolf wurde bereits 1916 mit seiner Goethe-Monographie berühmt, wohingegen Kahlers Werk langsamer wuchs. Erst die gegen Max Weber gerichtete Schrift {OCLCbr#BB}Der Beruf der Wissenschaft± (1920) machte auch ihn weithin bekannt. Aus dieser unterschiedlichen Veranlagung und aus der - ebenfalls grundverschiedenen - Stellung zu George ergeben sich Spannungen, die Kahlers Ehefrau Fine immer wieder versucht auszugleichen. Gundolf hatte die ungewöhnliche Frau schon vor ihrer Heirat mit Kahler als Medizinstudentin kennengelernt und verehrte sie leidenschaftlich, auch nach der Heirat 1912 blieben sie eng befreundet. Die späteren Briefe sind geprägt durch die wachsende Sorge Kahlers um Gundolfs Geschick, das durch erzwungene Trennung von George und Krankheit eine tragische Wendung nimmt. Der Briefwechsel zwischen Friedrich Gundolf und Erich von Kahler ist nicht nur Spiegel der geistigen Situation der Zeit und aufschlussreiches Dokument über Stefan George und seinen Kreis, sondern vor allem Zeugnis einer menschlichen Begegnung von hohem Rang. Die Edition umfasst die gesamte erhaltene Korrespondenz der Briefpartner und bezieht auch Briefe an und von Fine von Kahler sowie einige Briefe von Kahlers an Gundolfs Witwe Elisabeth (Elli) mit ein."--Publisher's description
Hermann Broch : Briefe an Erich von Kahler (1940-1951) by Hermann Broch( Book )

5 editions published between 1972 and 2010 in German and English and held by 103 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The letters convey a picture of Broch's political discussions with Kahler (World War II, the invention of the atomic bomb, post-war Germany, the founding of Israel, the role of the intellectual). Other topics covered in the letters include the intentions of his novels and his theory of mass hysteria as well as the cultural-historical essay "Hofmannsthal and his Time". The letters also reveal personal details - old Austrian retrospectives as well as current friendships with women and the efforts of his sponsors to promote his fame."--Publisher's website
