German expressionism and the Messianism of a generation by Lisa Marie Anderson( )

12 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 1,375 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book reads messianic expectation as the defining characteristic of German culture in the first decades of the twentieth century. It has long been accepted that the Expressionist movement in Germany was infused with a thoroughly messianic strain. Here, with unprecedented detail and focus, that strain is traced through the work of four important Expressionist playwrights: Ernst Barlach, Georg Kaiser, Ernst Toller and Franz Werfel
Hegel on Hamann by Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel( Book )

8 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 334 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1828, G.W.F. Hegel published a critical review of Johann George Hamann, a retrospective of the life and works of one of Germany's most enigmatic and challenging thinkers and writers. While Hegel's review had enjoyed a central place in Hamann studies since its appearance, Hegel on Hamann is the first English translation of the important work."

The encoding of desire: Reflections of contemporary Messianism in German Expressionist drama by Lisa Marie Anderson( Book )

3 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This dissertation employs an interdisciplinary approach to address the literary-historical debate surrounding the definition of "Expressionism" in German-speaking literature. Foregrounding the movement's inherently messianic worldview, it argues that what commentators traditionally label "Expressionist" style or thematics is actually a secularized manifestation of the messianism that shapes the Jewish and Christian religions. No understanding of Expressionism as a major Modernist movement (roughly 1910--1925) is complete without an appreciation of its fundamental structuring device: a pervasive search for a Messiah--whether personal or notional--to redeem a highly troubled society. This study focuses on the dramatic genre, since its insistence upon renewal through martyrdom or spiritual rebirth most aptly demonstrates the centrality of messianism within the movement. Analyses of plays by Ernst Barlach, Georg Kaiser, Ernst Toller and Franz Werfel illustrate how the Expressionist desire for redemption is mapped onto the expectation of the Messiah that suffuses the Hebrew and Christian Scriptures. Firm in the belief that their society was in need of salvation, these playwrights built their oeuvres around consistently blatant appropriation of rhetorical devices which remain intensely biblical (e.g., prophecy, proclamation). The dissertation takes its structure more from biblical than from other literary models, examining a succession of imagery and motifs from Judeo-Christian salvation history, from the Creation through the Apocalypse, while at the same time problematizing this supposedly continuous trajectory. Since this research is informed by the constant negotiation between sacred and secular in the modern era, the theoretical foundation for this project represents an admixture of literary and religious studies, applying originally biblical hermeneutics to secular texts in order to expose the particularly messianic theology and Christology of the Expressionist movement. Thus, this dissertation illustrates how biblical themes, motifs, imagery and rhetoric remain ingrained in even the most avowedly profane texts, and how the intensely prevalent desire for messianic redemption informs our reading of modern literature
Rhythm of the spirit : One child's inner strength to overcome illness and multiple disabilities by Lisa Marie Anderson( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When a parent is anticipating the birth of a child, he or she usually has feelings of love and elation. I think every parent expects to have a normal birth either in the hospital or at home. The parents expect to greet the happy smiling face of the new life they helped to create. I do not think any parent allows himself or herself to think the unthinkable-having a child born with severe developmental issues. Parents need to go through a process of grieving and healing as they say goodbye to all their pre-conceived ideas of how their baby will be or look or act. Not only is this grieving necessary for the emotional well-being of the parents, but it is also necessary for the child in question. A child born with special needs is counting on the love and support of his or her parents, family, and friends in order to become the most independent and productive individual he or she can be in society
