Vienna Library in the Vienna Rathaus. There is an index of works which gives only the German titles, not the original ones but no author index, which the chronological arrangement seems to require. If one takes the volume as inspiration for reading, it certainly has value. The subtitle of the second volume is unclear, since bestsellers are or once were by definition popular. A Very Short Introduction Oxford, Here it does not seem as necessary to know the works, but there is a wide spectrum of titles, including nonfiction. The volume treats such categories as cookbooks, cult books, books that moved the world, books of their times, popular nonfiction, books that were talked about, long-sellers, and books from the canon of world literature.
Perhaps it is not so important to the intended users, but this recycling of texts is mentioned nowhere. Like the first volume, this one has an index of titles but not of authors. One cannot say that all these books are worth knowing. For both volumes, the selection criteria are unclear, and neither has an introduction that explains them.
Theorie, Analyse, Geschichte [Poetry Handbook: Spanning European poetry from antiquity to the contemporary, the Handbuch Lyrik is a fundamental, comparative work which, according to editor Dieter Lamping, is dedicated to theoretical, analytical, typological, and didactic concerns. The 36 authors, only 10 of whom are women, are predominantly Germanists and comparatists. There is no standardized format for the articles;shunning such convention in a reference handbook is problematic.
The handbook is arranged in five parts. Part II focuses on poetic analysis and includes entries that consider the structure and devices of poetry, including sound, meter, forms, versification, and stanzaic structure, among other architectures and conventions. The entry for the poetic I is allotted only two-and-a-half pages, suggesting it must be covered elsewhere.
Likewise, articles by Fried von Ammons and Peer Trilckes are worthy of attention. Considering the importance of meta-poetry in the literary conversation, the article by Rudlof Brandmeyer is surprisingly short. Similarly, it would have been nice to see an article engaging the poetry of the 20th century and perhaps one that examines newer phenomena, such as slam poetry. Part IV is devoted to poetic agency. Part V considers the history of the poem, with articles dedicated to various literary periods, such as Early-Modern, Romanticism, and the contemporary eras, among others.
The detailed indices compiled by Regina Fabry deserve special attention, as they artfully pull together disparate and complex ideas. Bibliographic references appear at the end of each article, leading to some repetition, but this practice undoubtedly meets the needs of the selective user. Finally, completing this work is a three-page bibliography listing fundamental works of theory, history and analysis, including important anthologies, though there are some curious gaps. Gerhard Lauer und Christine Ruhrberg. This dictionary offers a selection of frequently used terms in literary criticism.
The individual entries are substantial and include a short bibliography that is up to date with the publication year of the dictionary, It is important to note that each entry is written by a different expert in the field, and that the collection of a diverse set of expert approaches to basic concepts in literary criticism makes the dictionary a valuable introduction to literary research itself. The arbitrary limit of selecting basic terms suggests that scholars would find the volume most useful as an introduction to literary study, or as a pocket or quick reference tool.
For more specialized information needs researchers should consult the more comprehensive dictionaries, such as the Reallexikon der deutschen Literaturwissenschaft. A Bibliography for Readers]. This hefty and extensive bibliography, compiled by jurist and Germanist Thomas Sprecher, offers a comprehensive overview of literary texts, both short and long, chapter-length and book-length, that deal significantly with some aspect of justice, law, or the legal system.
The emphasis is on texts written in German, but major authors from world literature, especially literature in English, are also included. The table of contents is 15 pages long and lists writers from not only literature but also philosophy and music, for example. Authors date from antiquity to the present, from Sophocles through contemporary lawyers-turned-authors like Scott Turow and Bernhard Schlink. The individual authors section, while some pages long, is but one out of 20 sections.
This publication should appeal both to literary scholars and to legal scholars. Giorgio Inglese and Raffaella Zanni. Medieval literature drew on a body of rhetorical precepts and figures derived from antiquity. Various poetic meters were used, as were certain rhyming schemes, among the latter the terza rima used by Dante in the Divina Commedia [Divine Comedy]. Giorgio Inglese and Raffaella Zanni have compiled a brief alphabetical dictionary of rhetorical devices and poetic meters used in medieval and early Renaissance western European literature; the emphasis throughout is on Italian literature.
Included in the category of literature are lyrics of song forms, such as the madrigale [madrigal] and the caccia [catch]. This entire dictionary will be useful, especially when studying the earlier generations of Italian writers. The dictionary begins with a brief foreword and a bibliographic key, giving the abbreviations most often employed.
The key cites a few manuscript books, but most of the references are to printed texts. Others are reference tools, including four repertoria [inventories] of poetic meters, listing poetic forms used in the Middle Ages.
Three of these repertoria focus on Sicily, not the mainland. The coverage of these and other non-Florentine vernacular literatures is one of the strengths of the book. Each entry in the dictionary explains the rhetorical figure or poetic form. Origins of terms, especially those derived from Greek, are explained briefly. The nature of each figure or meter is explained, and examples are given. For example, sententia [opinion] is illustrated with a quotation from Brunetto Latini.
Other authors and their works simply receive references, e. Poetic forms, such as the various forms used in the sonnetto [sonnet], are illustrated with indications of rhyme schemes. Others, such as the entry about the borrowing from troubadour poetry of the term plazer [pleasure] by writers like the jurist Cino da Pistoia, make this dictionary of medieval rhetoric and meter worthwhile. Bibliographien zur deutschen Literaturgeschichte, EUR Set . This bibliography is characterized by great breadth of scope. The accompanying CD-ROM which, incidentally, is not particularly easy to use serves partly as an index, but also includes some additional unique content, notably the numerous photographs mentioned in the title of the work.
Each of the three volumes contains its own detailed index. Thomas Mann, der Amerikaner: Life and Work in Exile, ]. Mann described his approach to America as a gradual physical and mental embracing. He was introduced to the country and its people during four visits from his earlier exile in Switzerland and later continued with train trips around the country.
He taught at Princeton University before moving to Pacific Palisades in California, received an honorary doctorate from Harvard University, had his honorary doctorate from the University of Bonn revoked, became a U. During this time, he published five books, sometimes including characters based on people he had encountered, such as his patron Agnes G.
Meyer and President Franklin D. This book is highly recommended, a linguistic and intellectual pleasure.
Personalbibliographie der Forschungsliteratur zu Thomas Bernhard: Despite certain lapses in craftmanship in this work e. This volume examines quotations from Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. Each of the 52 chapters begins with the original quotation which is then followed by a chronological record of later variations of the quotation, with sources. Sometimes its use is respectfully true to the original, other times it devolves to irreverent wordplay, sometimes it is used seriously, at other times humorously. Mieder limits the quotations to print media and illustrations, which is unfortunate considering the importance of other media in modern culture.
There is no index, but it is not really needed. The introduction includes an extensive bibliography. Unfortunately Mieder includes very little commentary, leaving the readers to draw their own conclusions, but the scholarly treatment and reputation of Mieder make the work indispensable. Goethes Leben von Tag zu Tag: Robert Steiger, and Angelika Reimann. Siegfried Seifert and Doris Kuhles. US-dollar price varies by provider.
The index is meticulous in its attention to detail, whether referring the reader to the documents that explicitly state a term, or whether analyzing the documents for implied and hidden subject terms. It is is precise and reliable, with each entry including not only the page and volume, but also the time period covered by the volume, e. The largest section of the volume is the names index p.
For entries on persons it is particularly useful that every effort has been made to include first name, birth and death year, and other unique personal information, including the titles of works by the person, if they were mentioned in the chronicle, and other contextual information in the form of additional subject terms.
