Parzival by Wolfram( Book )

11 editions published between 1977 and 1979 in German and Undetermined and held by 211 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Composed in the early thirteenth century, Wolfram von Eschenbach's Parzival is the re-creation and completion of the story left unfinished by its initiator Chretien de Troyes. It follows Parzival from his boyhood and career as a knight in the court of King Arthur to his ultimate achievement as King of the Temple of the Grail, which Wolfram describes as a life-giving Stone. As a knight serving the German nobility in the imperial Hohenstauffen period, the author was uniquely placed to describe the zest and colour of his hero's world, with dazzling depictions of courtly luxury, jousting and adventure. Yet this is not simply a tale of chivalry, but an epic quest for spiritual education, as Parzival must conquer his ignorance and pride and learn humility before he can finally win the Holy Grail

Das fünfbändige Reallexikon der deutschen Literaturgeschichte ist ein "Klassiker" der Philologie. In zweiter Auflage zwischen 1958 und 1988 erschienen, verzeichnet es systematisch alle wichtigen Fachtermini der modernen Literaturwissenschaft in ausführlichen, von ausgewiesenen Fachgelehrten verfaßten Artikeln. Das Spektrum der Begriffe reicht von Epochen- und Stilbezeichnungen bis hin zu Gattungsnamen und poetologischen Kategorien. Der Begriff "Ballade" wird z. B. ebenso erklärt wie "Moderne", "Novelle", "Ode", "Sturm und Drang" oder "Witz". Die Artikel bieten neben einer präzisen Begriffsbestimmung detaillierte Informationen zur Begriffs-, Sach- und Forschungsgeschichte sowie reichhaltige Literaturhinweise. Das Reallexikon, das jetzt in einer preiswerten Sonderausgabe erscheint, ist somit eine einzigartige literaturwissenschaftliche Enzyklopädie, die für Studenten, Lehrer und Wissenschaftler, aber auch für alle an literarischen und philologischen Themen Interessierten, eine unerschöpfliche Informationsquelle darstellt. Aufgrund seines breit gefächerten Stichwortbestandes und seiner z. T. monographisch angelegten Einträge kann das traditionsreiche Reallexikon auch heute noch als "Summe des Faches" und "Flaggschiff der Germanistik" (W. Frick) bezeichnet werden. Es bildet das terminologische Fundament der deutschen Literaturwissenschaft

Erec by Hartmann( Book )

4 editions published in 1980 in German and held by 137 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Erec is the earliest extant German Arthurian romance, freely adapted and translated into Middle High German by the Swabian knight, Hartmann von Aue, from the first Old French Arthurian romance, Chrétien de Troyes' Erec et Enide. Hartmann's work dates from c. 1180, but the only (almost) complete manuscript dates from the early sixteenth century, copied into the huge two-volume Ambraser Heldenbuch, now housed in Vienna - the most comprehensive extant compilation of medieval German romances and epics, commissioned by Emperor Maximilian I. Otherwise, only a few earlier medieval fragments survive. Erec tells the story of a young knight at King Arthur's court, whose early prowess wins him high repute, and a beautiful wife, Enite. He falls into disrepute because of his excessively zealous devotion of his time to her. Alerted to his notoriety, he embarks on a series of symbolic adventures, which eventually lead to his achieving a new balance between the claims of love and those of society. Far more than a simple translation, Hartmann's first attempt at an Arthurian romance is notable for its zest and gusto. This the first edition with a parallel text translation into English; it is presented with explanatory notes and variant readings. --
Iwein by Hartmann( Book )

3 editions published between 1974 and 1985 in German and held by 102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Few stories were as widely known during the Middle Ages as the account of Iwein and Laudine, which appeared in French, Welsh, English, Norse, Swedish, Danish, Icelandic, and two German variants. The older German version, that by the Swabian nobleman Hartmann von Aue, won instant popularity and became a model of form, style, and language for the many courtly epics which his countrymen composed up to the beginning of the modern period. In recent years, his Iwein has enjoyed a remarkable revival among medieval scholars as traditional interpretations have been challenged by new ones
