Titan: a romance by Jean Paul( Book )

23 editions published between 1862 and 1877 in English and German and held by 218 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jean Paul nannte den Titan seinen "Kardinal- und Kapitalroman". Der Roman umfasst circa 900 Seiten und erzählt die Bildungsgeschichte des Helden Albano de Cesara vom leidenschaftlichen Jüngling zum gereiften Mann. In Sprache und Stil weicht der Roman auffällig von anderen Texten Jean Pauls ab. Die Erzählung ist straffer organisiert und enthält weniger Abschweifungen und Randnotizen. Die Forschung sah darin häufig eine (stilistische) Annäherung an den Klassizismus Weimars, mit dem sich Jean Paul in dieser Zeit intensiv und kritisch auseinandersetzte. Die bilderreiche und (im damaligen Sinne) "witzige" Sprache Jean Pauls bleibt jedoch auch im Titan erhalten; der Roman ist also trotzdem eine herausfordernde Lektüre für heutige Leser. Die Serie "Meisterwerke der Literatur" beinhaltet die Klassiker der deutschen und weltweiten Literatur in einer einzigartigen Sammlung.

Faust, a tragedy by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe( Book )

29 editions published between 1848 and 2008 in English and held by 192 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Faust is the protagonist of a classic German legend. He is a scholar who is highly successful yet dissatisfied with his life, so he makes a pact with the Devil, exchanging his soul for unlimited knowledge and worldly pleasures. The Faust legend has been the basis for many literary, artistic, cinematic, and musical works that have reinterpreted it through the ages. Faust and the adjective Faustian imply a situation in which an ambitious person surrenders moral integrity in order to achieve power and success for a delimited term. The Faust of early books - as well as the ballads, dramas, movies, and puppet-plays which grew out of them - is irrevocably damned because he prefers human to divine knowledge; "he laid the Holy Scriptures behind the door and under the bench, refused to be called doctor of Theology, but preferred to be styled doctor of Medicine". Plays and comic puppet theatre loosely based on this legend were popular throughout Germany in the 16th century, often reducing Faust and Mephistopheles to figures of vulgar fun. The story was popularised in England by Christopher Marlowe, who gave it a classic treatment in his play, The Tragical History of Doctor Faustus. In Goethe's reworking of the story two hundred years later, Faust becomes a dissatisfied intellectual who yearns for "more than earthly meat and drink" in his life. - Amazon (summary for a later edition of this title)
