Menzel's realism : art and embodiment in nineteenth-century Berlin by Michael Fried( Book )

5 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 612 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Adolph Menzel was one of the most important German artists of the nineteenth century, yet he is scarcely known outside his native land. In this book a leading art historian contends that Menzel deserves to be recognized not only as one of the greatest painters and draftsmen of his century but also as a master realist whose work engages profoundly with an extraordinary range of issues - artistic, scientific, philosophical, social. Michael Fried has written the first book in English to explore Menzel's large and fascinating oeuvre, and in so doing has made the artist's stupendous achievement accessible to a wide audience at last."--Jaquette
The days of the king : a novel by Bruno Frank( Book )

12 editions published between 1942 and 1956 in German and English and held by 507 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rarely do authors manage to capture a historical figure as wholly and eloquently as Frank does Frederick the Great in this set of vignettes. He does not idolize or demonize Fritz, but rather presents him as he was: a phenomenal person, but still a person at heart. There is not too much or too little history; neither is this a book of facts or a pack of idle speculations. Rather, it is a few poignant stories of a fascinating soul, very well-told
Adolph Menzel by Wolfgang Hütt( Book )

50 editions published between 1905 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 292 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The broken jug; a comedy by Heinrich von Kleist( Book )

53 editions published between 1865 and 2005 in German and French and held by 228 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Broken Jug mocks the failings of human nature and the judicial system in a forgiving way. It is similar to Sophocles' tragedy Oedipus Rex (c. 429 BCE), in that in both plays the judge is guilty, but different insofar as Adam knows from the start who is guilty, as does the audience, and is trying his hardest to conceal the truth. The play follows the story of "Adam" and "Eve". Adam is covered in various injuries and talking with his secretary Licht. The jug is not mentioned in these first five scenes although the audience is made aware that Adam is a highly suspicious character. The trial lasting from scene seven through to scene eleven, shows the characters on stage trying to piece together the events which led to the breaking of the jug. At the end of scene eleven Eve states that Adam broke the jug and Adam escapes in the confusion
