Der arme Heinrich by Hartmann( Book )

7 editions published between 1895 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 76 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rainer Malkowski, der hoch angesehene Lyriker, hat Hartmanns mittelhochdeutsches Versepos, einem der Basistexte der deutschen Literatur, Seite für Seite einen modernen Text gegenübergestellt, der möglichst viel vom Original erkennbar macht und dessen Botschaft zugleich für uns entschlüsselt. Mit seiner rhythmisch durchkomponierten, dabei ganz unprätentiösen Diktion hat er dafür eine Sprache gefunden, die unmittelbar zu Herzen geht. Norbert Miller zieht in seinem Essay behutsame Linien zwischen alter und neuer Sprachform und der gewandelten Bildlichkeit im Angesicht eines zeitlosen Themas: Es geht um nichts Geringeres als die Verantwortung gegenüber dem Leben und den Umgang mit dem Tod
Faust : a tragedy : backgrounds and sources, the author on the drama, contemporary reactions, modern criticism by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe( Book )

5 editions published between 1927 and 1990 in English and Undetermined and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This edition includes Parts I and II complete. The backgrounds include the medieval Chapbook, the puppet play, and a surviving fragment of G. E. Lessing's Faust play. The author's plans and sketches, and a rich selection of his letters and comments to Eckermann, trace Goethe's lifelong involvement in the work, as does an analytical table showing the phases of composition. The contemporary reactions show how rapidly Faust came to be seen as a quintessential expression of German Romantic consciousness. The essays have been chosen to help readers perceive and understand Faust's extraordinary thematic and formal complexity--Cover
The reconciliation of classic and romantic, the presidential address for 1924-5 by John George Robertson( Book )

7 editions published between 1925 and 1969 in English and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
