Heinrich Heine : a modern biography by Jeffrey L Sammons( Book )

24 editions published between 1979 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 1,825 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Heinrich Heine has been one of the liveliest topics in German literary studies for the past fifteen years. His life was marked by an exceptionally high pitch of constant public controversy and an extraordinary quantity of legend and speculation surround his reputation. This biography, the first in English in over twenty years and the first fully documented one in over a century, makes full use of the newest material in contemporary studies as well as of older scholarship. Originally published in 1980. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These paperback editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905
Six essays on the Young German novel by Jeffrey L Sammons( Book )

16 editions published between 1972 and 1975 in English and held by 735 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At a time when the Holocaust is being integrated as a course or unit in the K-12 curriculum, teachers will find this edited work of immense value. Most significantly, this volume suggests how professionals must get the story right and also be sensitive not only to the Jewish story during the Holocaust, but other groups such as Roma and Sinti, and other forms of genocide which continue today. Contains 25 contributions from poets, academics, scholars, and survivors. Intended for teachers and librarians, the text is divided between personal retellings, research sources, and reference sources. Representative contributions include five poems from "Blue Tattoo" by Lyn Lifshin, and discussion of preparing a Holocaust unit for high school students, genocide studies and future directions of Holocaust research, the role of the Holocaust historian, and Holocaust research using the Internet

Wilhelm Raabe : the fiction of the alternative community by Jeffrey L Sammons( Book )

16 editions published between 1987 and 2017 in English and held by 660 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is grounded in a conviction that Wilhelm Raabe (1831-1910) was the major nineteenth-century novelist in the German language between Goethe and Fontane, and a writer deserving of an honorable place in the canon of European literature. Raabe, as I shall try to show, was distinctly a German Victorian writer. Raabe wrote, at a minimum, a dozen novels of significant rank. Of no other German-language novelist of the time can this be said. - p. xi

Italian journey by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe( Book )

7 editions published between 1989 and 1994 in English and held by 451 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1786, when he was already the acknowledged leader of the Sturm und Drang literary movement, Goethe set out on a journey to Italy to fulfil a personal and artistic quest and to find relief from his responsibilities and the agonies of unrequited love. As he travelled to Venice, Rome, Naples and Sicily he wrote many letters, which he later used as the basis for the Italian Journey. A journal full of fascinating observations on art and history, and the plants, landscape and the character of the local people he encountered, this is also a moving account of the psychological crisis from which Goethe emerged newly inspired to write the great works of his mature years."--Book cover

Ludwig Börne : a memorial by Heinrich Heine( )

5 editions published between 2006 and 2013 in English and held by 366 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1840, Heinrich Heine, the major German poet of Jewish origin of the age, published a book on Ludwig Borne, the major German political writer of Jewish origin of the period, who had died three years before. Regarded by Heine and others as his best-written book, it was also his most disastrously conceived. Intended to recover the high ground of revolutionary principle and philosophy against the attacks mounted on him by Borne and his supporters, the book was instead met by a storm of outrage from which it seemed Heine's reputation might never recover. In the course of time, the evaluation was reversed; Heine was increasingly celebrated as a true herald of revolution. His vocabulary of Hellenism and Nazarenism, employed for the first time in Borne, was transmitted into English usage by Matthew Arnold. But Borne itself is Heine's only major work that has never been fully translated into English. The commentary to the edition clarifies the conflict between the two most prominent German-Jewish public intellectuals of their time, corrects the misapprehensions constantly in circulation about their relationship and the book, and reveals the many peculiarities of the text."--Publisher's website

Kuno Francke's edition of the German classics (1913-15) : a historical and critical overiew by Jeffrey L Sammons( Book )

12 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 160 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The twenty-volume edition of "The German Classics: Masterpieces of German Literature Translated into English" was edited by Kuno Francke of Harvard (1855-1930), the most prestigious professor of German in America at the time. While it bears the imprint dates 1913 and 1914, it was not completed until mid-1915, just in time for the submarine sinking of the passenger liner "Lusitania" in May of that year. The edition was publicized with great fanfare and was well received at first, but with the outbreak of the European war in 1914 and the entry of the United States into it in 1917, American sentiment turned against all things German. The reviews became hostile; the edition was nearly pulped; its publisher went bankrupt; and Francke felt obliged to resign his Harvard professorship. "Kuno Francke's Edition of The German Classics (1913-15)" describes the origins of the edition; recounts the careers of the editors and some fifty professional contributors; seeks to identify approximately 115 translators; and comments on the nearly 500 illustrations, mostly German art of the nineteenth century. This book also introduces the selections from the 114 featured authors, almost a third of whom were still alive at the time of publication, and evaluates the critical commentary. The edition emerges from the study as a laboratory of the high prestige of German literature and culture in the United States before it fell into permanent decline at the time of World War I
