Most widely held works by Karin Kersten

Geschichte der Kindheit by Philippe Ariès( Book )

To the lighthouse by Virginia Woolf( Book )

6 editions published between 1991 and 2007 in German and held by 58 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pierre Nordon a bien souligné la minutieuse tendresse de cette "élégie en prose" dont le point de départ est autobiographique (l'enfance de l'auteure dans ses paysages) et dont les cinq personnages principaux sont à la recherche de valeurs différentes: "perfection poétique", "vérité scientifique", "alpha et oméga de la pensée", "convivialité et harmonie", "forme idéale du tableau". Préface, p. 7-31. Dossier: chronologie, genèse, notes, bibliographie (au total, 51 pages). [SDM]
Hohe Tannen : Roman für Freunde by Karin Kersten( Book )

7 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in German and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The fantastic; a structural approach to a literary genre by Tzvetan Todorov( Book )

11 editions published between 1972 and 2013 in German and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Quoique très controversé, cet ouvrage demeure une tentative rigoureuse de catégorisation dont l'auteur ne cache pas les postulats nécessaires. Faisant consister le fantastique comme une hésitation entre la foi absolue et l'incrédulité totale, il le condamne à une existence éphémère entre le merveilleux et l'étrange. Ce livre, malgré ses mérites, demeure un échec honorable, largement discuté dans les ouvrages parus sur le sujet après 1971, date de la publication originale

From anxiety to method in the behavioral sciences by George Devereux( Book )

Vom Umschlag: Devereux' Originalität besteht darin, dass er die Psychoanalyse für die Erkenntniskritik fruchtbar gemacht hat. Die Art und Weise, wie bestimmte Vorstellungen und Affekte im Kopf und in der Psyche des Wissenschaftlers zustande kommen, ist analysierbar geworden. (Mario Erdheim)

The voyage out by Virginia Woolf( Book )

7 editions published between 1989 and 2017 in German and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Voyage Out (1915) is the story of a rite of passage. When Rachel Vinrace embarks for South America on her father's ship she is launched on a course of self-discovery in a modern version of the mythic voyage. Virginia Woolf knew all too well the forms that she was supposed to follow when writing of a young lady's entrance into the world, and she struggled to subvert the conventions, wittily and assiduously, rewriting and revising the novel many times.
