The World of Franz Kafka by J. P Stern( Book )

14 editions published between 1980 and 1981 in English and German and held by 1,221 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In The World of Franz Kafka, Professor J.P. Stern, the internationally respected critic and historian of modern German literature, brings together a number of writings on widely varying aspects of Kafka's life, work and milieu, most of them specially commissioned for this volume. The book is divided into three parts: the first is biographical, covering such topics as the social and cultural environment of Prague in the last years of the Habsburg Empire; Kafka's own Jewish background and problematic family life; his mysterious unfulfilled relationships with women; and it includes reminiscences, some never before published in English. In the second section of the book Martin Walser, Frank Kermode, Erich Heller, Walter Sokel, Anthony Thorlby, and others deal with the literary problems of interpreting Kafka's work, while the concluding part of the book contains fictional or semi-fictional pieces by writers like Roy Fuller, Philip Roth, and D.J. Enright that were inspired by Kafka and in their turn shed fresh light on him"--Jacket

Nietzsche on tragedy by M. S Silk( Book )

40 editions published between 1980 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 905 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first comprehensive study of Nietzsche's earliest (and extraordinary) book, The Birth of Tragedy (1872). When he wrote it, Nietzsche was a Greek scholar, a friend and champion of Wagner, and a philosopher in the making. His book has been very influential and widely read, but has always posed great difficulties for readers because of the particular way Nietzsche brings his ancient and modern interests together. The proper appreciation of such a work requires access to ideas that cross the boundaries of conventional specialisms. This is now provided by M. S. Silk and J. P. Stern in their joint study of Nietzsche's book. They examine in detail its content, style and form; its strange genesis and hybrid status; its biographical background and the controversy engendered by its publication; its value as an account of ancient Greek culture and as a theory of tragedy and music; its relation to other theories of tragedy; and its place in the history of German ideas and in Nietzsche's own philosophical career

Idylls & realities; studies in nineteenth-century German literature by J. P Stern( Book )

22 editions published between 1971 and 2020 in English and held by 813 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Originally published in 1971, this book outlines the period of Germany's belated industrial revolution and suggests why German literature does not, before the 1880s, contribute to the tradition of European realism. It considers the alternatives to realism offered in three genres of drama, poetry and prose fiction. The book closely analyses specific texts, both in the original and in translation, with comparisons with non-German works
Untimely meditations by Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche( Book )

4 editions published between 1983 and 1992 in English and held by 734 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The four short works in Untimely Meditations were published by Nietzsche between 1873 and 1876. They deal with such broad topics as the relationship between popular and genuine culture, strategies for cultural reform, the task of philosophy, the nature of education, and the relationship between art, science and life. They also include Nietzsche's earliest statement of his own understanding of human selfhood as a process of endlessly 'becoming who one is'. As Daniel Breazeale shows in his introduction to this new edition of R.J. Hollingdale's translation of the essays, these four early texts are key documents for understanding the development of Nietzsche's thought and clearly anticipate many of the themes of his later writings. Nietzsche himself always cherished his Untimely Meditations and believed that they provide valuable evidence of his 'becoming and self-overcoming' and constitute a 'public pledge' concerning his own distinctive task as a philosopher
Friedrich Nietzsche by J. P Stern( Book )

46 editions published between 1920 and 1994 in 6 languages and held by 638 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Together with Marx and Freud, Friedrich Nietzsche (1844-1900) is one of the main sources of twentieth-century thought. His formulations that God is dead, that the world is the product of the will to power, and that true value lies in a morality of strenuousness, have become part of the European experience in our age. This book is an exhilarating examination of Nietzsche's work: in a series of analyses of his 'philosophical experiments', the author elucidates Nietzsche's existentialism by reference to the main events of his life, and to his astounding range of styles and vision of language." --Descripción del editor

The dear purchase : a theme in German modernism by J. P Stern( Book )

19 editions published between 1958 and 2009 in English and held by 427 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book studies individual works by twelve major writers of German modernism, including Thomas Mann, Musil, Brecht and Rilke, in relation to the history of the twentieth century. It explores the theme of the 'dear purchase', an ideal of moral strenuousness and sacrifice seen as characteristic of Germany after Nietzsche, and reveals the underlying flaw in this notion as a self-justifying value. In this context, it considers the renaissance of German poetry after 1900, the impact of the War of 1914, its aftermath in uncertainty and relativism, and attitudes to the Hitler period, and finally juxtaposes Mann's Felix Krull and Kafka's story Josephine as a deliverance from the value-system of the title. The Introduction, partly autobiographical, traces J. P. Stern's preoccupation with this interpretation of his material in many of the books he published (especially those concerned with Nietzsche and Hitler), and pays tribute to Wittgenstein's influence on his thinking
