Ritual und Literatur by Wolfgang Braungart( Book )

16 editions published between 1993 and 2012 in German and held by 208 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Main description: Literature is not only polyvalent and enigmatic, as the prevailing theoretical paradigm in literary studies insists. For all its polyvalence it is still experienced as meaningful and significant because it is determined, aesthetically remarkable and rule-bound. In this sense it can be seen as having major similarities to ritual, can indeed be described in terms of ritual activity. Ritual, after all, is an aesthetically contoured, symbolic action designed for repetition, and as such has retained its fundamental importance in human life to this day
Ästhetischer Katholizismus : Stefan Georges Rituale der Literatur by Wolfgang Braungart( Book )

13 editions published between 1994 and 2012 in German and held by 205 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The social power of rituals is a function of their aesthetic fascination; the one is unimaginable without the other. In modern German literature, Stefan George's works (1868-1933) represent the most significant and consistent case of a ritualistic aesthetic. Indeed, the indissoluble unity between George's work and his life can be reconstructed in terms of the category of ritual. George's entire oeuvre is something akin to one huge transition ritual opening up German lyric poetry to the traditions of aestheticism and symbolism. His literary rituals proved their cohesive potency early on in conn

Stefan George : Werk und Wirkung seit dem "Siebenten Ring" by Ute Oelmann( Book )

12 editions published between 2001 and 2010 in German and held by 192 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The significance of Stefan George (1868-1933) in the history of modern German poetry is not in doubt. So far, however, research on his work has concentrated on the earlier half of his production, up to and including" Der Siebente Ring", to the relative neglect of the poetry that makes up the later stages of his oeuvre. This later work is notable for the challenging way it addresses topics such as sexuality, religion, poetology, and politics. This volume assembles the papers delivered at the Stefan George colloquium in Bingen am Rhein in December 1998
Manier und Manierismus by Wolfgang Braungart( Book )

10 editions published in 2000 in German and held by 177 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Manner and mannerism are closely related, not only by their etymology. The terms allude to the pragmatics and performativity of the aesthetic. A mannerist work of art is the product of a 'mannered' act by which an artist intervenes in social and cultural constellations. The mannerist demonstrates not merely aesthetic artistry but also acts in a 'mannered' way. Thus mannerism gives us the opportunity of discussing the extent to which aesthetic concepts can be reformulated in social terms and social concepts in aesthetic terms. The volume brings together the papers presented at a conference held at the Interdisciplinary Research Centre of Bielefeld University in 1998
Eduard Mörike : Ästhetik und Geselligkeit( Book )

9 editions published between 2004 and 2011 in German and held by 156 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nach wie vor findet Eduard Mörike (1804-1875) nicht die Aufmerksamkeit, die ihm eigentlich zukäme - wohl auch, weil er sich nicht leicht den großen Tendenzen des 19. Jahrhunderts zuordnen läßt: Er ist kein Intellektueller wie Heine. Er mischt sich nicht in die großen politischen Debatten ein. Er thematisiert nicht die wirtschaftlichen und sozialen Umwälzungen. Er begehrt nicht gegen die Dominanz der deutschen Klassik auf; er ist kein Denkmalstürzer. Das Nebensächliche bekommt bei ihm besondere Bedeutung; es wird in einen ästhetischen Reflexionsprozeß hineingezogen, der mit lebensweltlichen Konkretisierungen einhergeht, so daß sich 'Ästhetik' und 'Geselligkeit' gegenseitig hervorbringen und spiegeln
Die Kunst der Utopie : vom Späthumanismus zur frühen Aufklärung by Wolfgang Braungart( Book )

13 editions published between 1986 and 1989 in German and held by 138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Stefan George und die Religion by Wolfgang Braungart( Book )

7 editions published in 2015 in German and held by 137 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Immer deutlicher wird in der Forschung wahrgenommen, dass Stefan George und sein Kreis keineswegs einen merkwürdigen religiösen {u201A}Sonderweg' gehen. Sie sind vielmehr im Kontext des gesamten religiösen Feldes um 1900 zu sehen, in dem ein breites Spektrum konkurrierender Formen von Religiosität und Religion vorherrschte. Seit jeher gibt es Religion nur im Plural. Für die Moderne gilt das jedoch in ganz besonderer Weise. Schon in den reformatorischen Jahrzehnten öffnet sich das religiöse Feld stark. Sich für das 19. und 20. Jahrhundert allein auf christliche, kirchlich verfasste, konfessionell interpretierte Religion zu konzentrieren, wird dieser Pluralität nicht gerecht. Doch stattdessen von {u201A}neo-'{u201A} und {u201A}para'-{u201A} oder {u201A}pseudo-religiösen' Bewegungen zu sprechen, scheint in geschichtlicher Hinsicht nicht sinnvoll, weil man damit impliziert, zwischen {u201A}eigentlicher' und {u201A}uneigentlicher' Religion unterscheiden zu wollen. Durch die neuere kulturhistorische, religionssoziologische und religionsgeschichtliche Forschung wurden Grundlagen geschaffen, die auch die George-Forschung von heute nicht ignorieren kann. --

Kitsch : Faszination und Herausforderung des Banalen und Trivialen by Wolfgang Braungart( Book )

12 editions published between 2002 and 2011 in German and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Main description: Modern aesthetics is the product of a process of segregation. Works of art are something necessarily distinct from that which merely>>finds the dubious acclaim of the crowd<<(Schiller). All the way up to Adorno and beyond, this postulate asserted itself successfully. Any blurring of the boundaries between art and kitsch was pilloried as sacrilegious, as if art were a locus of something akin to theology. For that precise reason post-modernism has displayed provocative zest in dismantling such a categorization. Kitsch is the frank and unashamed expression of a need for emotional appeal and immediately appreciable meaning and significance. As such it cannot but represent a major provocation for an aesthetic modernism that has pinned all its allegiances to the ubiquity of absurdity, meaninglessness, loss, mourning, and melancholy
