Themes and Structures

Studies in German Literature from Goethe to the Present: A Festschrift for Theodore Ziolkowski

Edited by Alexander Stephan

  • Description
  • Reviews
Articles investigating important themes and structures in the works of major German writers from the eighteenth century to the present day.
This collection of essays focuses on the major figures in German literature from the eighteenth to the twentieth century, looking at themes and structures in works by Goethe, Schlegel, Tieck, Kempowski and others. Special emphasisis given to the turn of the nineteenth century, to the contemporary period, and to German/American relations, while topics include the popularisation of Copernicus and Newton; Goethe's Die Metamorphose der Pflanzen as elegy; and, moving to the present day, a close reading of themes and structures in Wedekind's Lulu plays, Handke's Repetition, and Wolf's Kassandra project; and an investigation of the changing image of post-war Germany in American fiction. The volume as a whole is thus a fitting tribute to Theodore Ziolkowski, longtime graduate dean of Princeton University and the author of numerous books on key aspects of German literature from Romanticism to the present day.
