On Wordsworth's Prelude by Herbert Lindenberger( Book )

30 editions published between 1963 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,067 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The letters that passed between a young unknown provincial journalist and a famous Pre-Raphaelite painter and poet over a period of two years give a fascinating sidelight on 188O's literary life. They illuminate the last years of Dante Gabriel Rossetti and the start of a career that was to make Hall Caine the most popular and best-selling romantic novelist of his time. The value and interest of this book lie in the fact that both sides of a correspondence are printed here together for the first time. It should appeal both to specialists and the general reader."--Jacket

Situating opera : period, genre, reception by Herbert Lindenberger( Book )

14 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 257 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Setting opera within a variety of contexts - social, aesthetic, historical - Lindenberger illuminates a form that has persisted in recognizable shape for over four centuries. The study examines the social entanglements of opera, for example the relation of Mozart's Abduction from the Seraglio and Verdi's Il trovatore to its initial and later audiences. It shows how modernist opera rethought the nature of theatricality and often challenged its viewers by means of both musical and theatrical shock effects. Using recent experiments in

One family's Shoah : victimization, resistance, survival in Nazi Europe by Herbert Lindenberger( Book )

9 editions published between 2002 and 2013 in English and held by 136 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

EUROPEAN HISTORY: FROM C 1900 -. Deploying concepts of interpretation, liberation, and survival, esteemed literary critic Herbert Lindenberger reflects on his family's experiences during the Holocaust. Moving, painful, and uplifting, One Family's Shoah records the diverse fates experienced by descendants of a once-prominent Berlin businessman, Isaak Lindenberger - fates that include deportation to Theresienstadt and Auschwitz, execution for participating in anti-Nazi sabotage, a miraculous escape from Denmark to Sweden, and, for a lucky few, emigration to safe countries before World War II began. By viewing public, family, and personal records through the lens of literary, musical, and art criticism, One Family's Shoah suggests a new way of writing cultural history
Aesthetics of discomfort : conversations on disquieting art by Frederick Luis Aldama( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 96 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Through a series of provocative conversations, Frederick Luis Aldama and Herbert Lindenberger, who have written widely on literature, film, music, and art, locate a place for the discomforting and the often painfully unpleasant within aesthetics. The conversational format allows them to travel informally across many centuries and many art forms. They have much to tell one another about the arts since the advent of modernism soon after 1900-the nontonal music, for example, of the Second Vienna School, the chance-directed music and dance of John Cage and Merce Cunningham, the in-your-faceness of such diverse visual artists as Francis Bacon, Pablo Picasso, Willem de Kooning, Egon Schiele, Otto Dix, and Damien Hirst. They demonstrate as well a long tradition of discomforting art stretching back many centuries, for example, in the Last Judgments of innumerable Renaissance painters, in Goya's so-called "black" paintings, in Wagner's Tristan chord, and in the subtexts of Shakespearean works such as King Lear and Othelloe. This book is addressed at once to scholars of literature, art history, musicology, and cinema. Although its conversational format eschews the standard conventions of scholarly argument, it provides original insights both into particular art forms and into individual works within these forms. Among other matters, it demonstrates how recent work in neuroscience may provide insights in the ways that consumers process difficult and discomforting works of art. The book also contributes to current aesthetic theory by charting the dialogue that goes on-especially in aesthetically challenging works- between creator, artifact, and consumer
