Overview

Overview

Critical response to Uhland's work from 19th century to present.
Ludwig Uhland (1787-1862) is one of the founders of German literary scholarship and philology, and an important Romantic poet and dramatist. His Gedichte of 1815 contains the bulk of his work, including such famous ballads as Des Sängers Fluch; other significant writings are scholarly studies and editions, such as Walther von der Vogelweide (1822) and Alte hoch- und niederdeutsch Volkslieder. Professor Doerksen deals with the critical response to the entire body of Uhland's work from the mid-nineteenth century to the present. In so doing he provides not only a map of changing literary and critical fashions but also a fascinating picture of cultural and political trends in early and mid-nineteenth century Germany.

Reviews

"Tiech's oeuvre displays an ongoing interest in language, and Crisman carefully demonstrates how each work illustrates the potential (or failed potential) of various language roles. Each chapter includes copious endnotes rich with secondary literature references." CHOICE
