The life of August Wilhelm Schlegel : cosmopolitan of art and poetry by Roger Paulin( )

20 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 1,390 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first full-scale biography, in any language, of a towering figure in German and European Romanticism: August Wilhelm Schlegel whose life, 1767 to 1845, coincided with its inexorable rise. As poet, translator, critic and oriental scholar, Schlegel's extraordinarily diverse interests and writings left a vast intellectual legacy, making him a foundational figure in several branches of knowledge. He was one of the last thinkers in Europe able to practise as well as to theorise, and to attempt to comprehend the nature of culture without being forced to be a narrow specialist. With his brother Friedrich, for example, Schlegel edited the avant-garde Romantic periodical Athenaeum; and he produced with his wife Caroline a translation of Shakespeare, the first metrical version into any foreign language. Schlegel's Lectures on Dramatic Art and Literature were a defining force for Coleridge and for the French Romantics. But his interests extended to French, Italian, Spanish and Portuguese literature, as well to the Greek and Latin classics, and to Sanskrit
Ludwig Tieck, a literary biography by Roger Paulin( Book )

47 editions published between 1900 and 2002 in 3 languages and held by 1,106 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ludwig Tieck (1773-1853) was a major figure in German cultural life, a poet, playwright, and novelist who was also an influential art and theater critic, the editor of Kleist and Novalis, and the prime force behind the famous Schegel-Tieck translation of Shakespeare. His was a long andprolific career, which began in the last decades of Frederick the Great's reign, and ended in the aftermath of the 1848 Revolution, and his varied literary output reflected the progress and the shifting emphasis of the Romantic movement. In this biography, Roger Paulin attempts to capture, throughthe study of the
Wallenstein : a dramatic poem by Friedrich Schiller( )

7 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 957 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"By the time Frederich Schiller came to write the Wallenstein trilogy, his reputation as one of Germany's leading playwrights was all but secured. Consisting of Wallenstein's Camp, The Piccolomini and Wallenstein's Death, this suite of plays appeared between 1798 and 1799, each production under the original direction of Schiller's collaborator and mentor, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. Across the three plays, which are now commonly performed and printed together, Schiller charts the thwarted rebellion of General Albrecht von Wallenstein. Based loosely on the events of the Thirty Years' War, the trilogy provides a unique perspective on an army's loyalty to their commander and the machinations and intrigues of international diplomacy, giving insight into the military hero who is placed on the threshold between these forces as they are increasingly pitted against one another. The Wallenstein trilogy, formally innovative and modern beyond its time, is a brilliant study of power, ambition and betrayal. In this new translation--the latest in a long line of distinguished English translations starting with Coleridge's in Schiller's lifetime--Flora Kimmich succeeds in rendering what is often a difficult source text into language that is at once accessible and enjoyable. Coupled with a complete and careful commentary and a glossary, both of which are targeted to undergraduates, it is accompanied by an authoritative introductory essay by Roger Paulin. Kimmich's translation will be an invaluable resource for students of German, European literature and history, and military history, as well as to all readers approaching this important set of plays for the first time."--Publisher's website

Rilke's Duino elegies : Cambridge readings( Book )

5 editions published in 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 235 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rainer Maria Rilke is frequently acclaimed as the greatest poet writing in German in the twentieth century, and the Duino Elegies are his crowning achievement as a poet. This hymnic verse draws creatively on a tradition of elegiac utterance in German while radically extending that language to the limits of its expressive powers in image and allusion. The ten readings that make up this book, by members and former members of the faculty of Modern and Medieval Languages at Cambridge, seek both to come to terms with the problems of Rilke's language and imagery, and to bring out their poetic qualities. Commentary and text are interwoven in such a way that the reader is taken step by step into Rilke's world, while fresh English translations are provided for those unable to read the original German. As close readings, the interpretations confront the reader with the great themes of Rilke's oeuvre, in a cycle that moves gradually, but with growing confidence, to an acceptance of the limitations of human life and death.--Book jacket flap
