Faust : a tragedy : backgrounds and sources, the author on the drama, contemporary reactions, modern criticism by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe( Book )

9 editions published between 1976 and 2001 in English and held by 1,816 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

Songs of love & grief : a bilingual anthology in the verse forms of the originals by Heinrich Heine( Book )

4 editions published in 1995 in English and German and held by 438 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Heinrich Heine (1797-1856) is undoubtedly Germany's most significant poet of the nineteenth century, second in importance only to Goethe. Heine's poetry appeared in all major European languages and was immensely popular throughout the nineteenth century, but has been neglected by modern readers. Now the eminent translator Walter W. Arndt has rectified this situation by producing sparkling new translations of Heine's love poems." "Although many of Heine's poems are deceptively simple on the surface, the multiple allusions, word plays, and shifts and breaks in diction and tone make them almost untranslatable. Arndt not only renders the meaning of the originals, but preserves the poems' rhyme schemes as well as their moods and multiple cultural resonances. Arndt captures both the simplicity of the Germanic folk song structure and the Romantic pathos and imagery that Heine both evokes and undermines, revealing the identification with and alienation from German culture expressed so poignantly in Heine's poetry. This bilingual edition includes an illuminating introduction by Heine scholar Jeffrey L. Sammons."--Jacket

Overview: Edited by Yevgeny Pasternak, Yelena Pasternak, and Konstantin M. Azadovsky. The summer of 1926 was a time of trouble and uncertainty for each of the three poets whose correspondence is collected in this moving volume. Marina Tsvetayeva was living in exile in France and struggling to get by. Boris Pasternak was in Moscow, trying to come to terms with the new Bolshevik regime. Rainer Maria Rilke, in Switzerland, was dying. Though hardly known to each other, they began to correspond, exchanging a series of searching letters in which every aspect of life and work is discussed with extraordinary intensity and passion. Letters: Summer 1926 takes the reader into the hearts and minds of three of the twentieth century's greatest poets at a moment of maximum emotional and creative pressure
