Der gestiefelte Kater. Puss-in-Boots by Ludwig Tieck( Book )

9 editions published in 1974 in German and English and held by 413 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Der gestiefelte Kater kommt auf die Bühne: Das Besondere liegt daran, dass das Märchen "nach Ludwig Tieck" in 3 Akten auf einer deutschen Kleinstadt-Bühne gespielt wird. Das Publikum mischt sich immer wieder eher ungnädig ein. Der Dichter macht sich auf einen Flop gefasst. Aber der tüchtige Kater sorgt dafür, dass alles "nach Tieck" durchgezogen wird und zum gehörigen Happy End kommt; dies allerdings auf verschlungenen und kurvigen Wegen. Der Text ist zum Verständnis der Turbulenzen unerlässlich, und zur Klarheit steht alles, was auf der Bühne geschieht, in roter Schrift. Am besten überhaupt, man kennt die Geschichte vom gestiefelten Kater schon, wenn man dieses Spektakel vorgelesen bekommt. Dann kann man sich auf die ausdrucksstarken Bildcollagen von Gleich und das Tohuwabohu zwischen Bühne, Publikum und Dichter konzentrieren. Ab 7 Jahren, ausgezeichnet, Ruedi W. Schweizer

Die Nachtwachen des Bonaventura. The night watches of Bonaventura by Bonaventura( Book )

11 editions published between 1971 and 1972 in English and German and held by 326 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nachtwachen ist ein satirischer Roman, der August Klingemann zugeschrieben wird und 1804 in Penig bei Ferdinand Dienemann mit dem Zusatz "Von Bonaventura" erschien. Der Roman gliedert sich in 16 Episoden, die als "Nachtwachen" bezeichnet werden. Unterschiedliche Textformen (Rede, Prolog, Briefwechsel, Gedicht, Essay oder Bildbeschreibung), die nicht zwingend der Handlung angehören, durchbrechen die erzählende Struktur des Textes und lassen ihn insgesamt unzusammenhängend und fragmentarisch erscheinen. Damit lehnt er sich an romantische Vorbilder wie Friedrich Schlegels Lucinde oder Clemens Brentanos Godwi an. Die Serie "Meisterwerke der Literatur" beinhaltet die Klassiker der deutschen und weltweiten Literatur in einer einzigartigen Sammlung.

Nonfictional romantic prose : expanding borders( Book )

10 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 126 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Nonfictional Romantic Prose: Expanding Borders surveys a broad range of expository, polemical, and analytical literary forms that came into prominence during the last two decades of the eighteenth century and the first half of the nineteenth. They stand in contrast to better-known romantic fiction in that they endeavor to address the world of daily, empirical experience rather than that of more explicitly self-referential, fanciful creation. Among them are genres that have since the nineteenth century come to characterize many aspects of modern life like the periodical or the psychological case study; others flourished and enjoyed wide-spread popularity during the nineteenth century but are much less well-known today like the almanac and the diary. Travel narratives, pamphlets, religious and theological texts, familiar essays, autobiographies, literary-critical and philosophical studies, and discussions of the visual arts and music all had deep historical roots when appropriated by romantic writers but prospered in their hands and assumed distinctive contours indicative of the breadth of romantic thought."--Publisher's description

Contextualizing world literature( Book )

8 editions published in 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book revisits the notion of World Literature and its applications in Comparative Literature. It suggests the notion not as a means to sift out international paradigms for reading literatures, but as a set of guidelines for the construction of interlocking and/or reciprocally illuminating multilingual literary clusters. These ensembles are of very diverse shapes: the world, a region, a country, a language block, a network of cross-cultural ±interferences; while the so-called minor literatures invite to question the use of these ensembles. Within this frame, fourteen essays respond to the basic paradox of World Literature: how may specific methodological and critical outlooks allow expression of the universal? The answers to this question can be arranged in three groups: 1. Recognition of the need to break loose from European or Western critical perspectives; 2. Presentation of macro- and microcosmic dimensions connectedness and its processes; 3. Definitions of the methodological efforts and hermeneutic orientations to be applied.0
Ludwig Tieck's Puss-in-Boots and the Theater of the absurd : a commentated bilingual edition by Ludwig Tieck( Book )

10 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Johann Ludwig Tieck (1773-1853) was one of the most formative influences of the romantic movement, inspiring such major figures as Novalis and Hoffmann. Not only did his tales and novels shape the course of German romantic fiction; as a translator he helped to naturalize Shakespeare and Cervantes; as an editor he was among the first to recognize Kleist. Tieck's precocious invention of ironic-fantastic comedy quickly found resonance among fellow romantics, who worked under the parallel influence of the Goethean revolution in drama exhibited in Faust. Yet Tieck's play Puss-in-Boots (1797) had to
Intersections, interferences, interdisciplines : literature with other arts by Haun Saussy( Book )

8 editions published in 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume advances the study of how the high arts and literature are reciprocally illuminating and interactive. Seventeen scholars from North America, Asia, Africa, and Europe demonstrate the dynamics of cross-referentiality and mixtures involving also newer and popular arts and media: photography, film, video, comics, dance, opera, computer imaging, and more. They consider an expanded universe of discourses embracing contemporary science as well as traditional subject matters. Discussions of theoretical and methodological approaches keep company here with intensively focused case studies of
