Weitzman, Erica, author. Description Book — xi, pages ; 24 cm Summary Introduction : the comic ethos Senses of humor : the origins of comic irony The playgrounds of literature : Robert Walser Slap happy : comic Kafka Bearing wit to history : Joseph Roth Conclusion : last laughs. Irony's Antics marks a major intervention into the underexplored role of the comic in German letters.
At the book's heart is the relationship between the comic and irony. Weitzman argues that in the early twentieth century, irony, a key figure for the German Romantics, re-emerged from its relegation to "nonsense" in a way that both rethought Romantic irony and dramatically extended its reach. Through readings of works by Robert Walser, Franz Kafka, and Joseph Roth, as well as theorists of the comic such as Freud, Schlegel, Hegel, Kierkegaard, and Jean Paul, Irony's Antics traces the development of a specifically comic irony, a play with irony that is itself the condition for all play.
It thus constitutes a significant advance in German literary history and shows how the question of the comic has been and continues to be decisive for modern thought.

As their own country entered a phase of critical socioeconomic changes, German historians and writers reinvented the Italian Renaissance as the onset of a heroic modernity: a glorious dawn that ushered in an age of secular individualism, imbued with ruthless vitality and a neo-pagan zest for beauty. The Italian Renaissance in the German Historical Imagination is the first comprehensive account of the debates that shaped the German idea of the Renaissance in the seven decades following Jacob Burckhardt's seminal study of Based on a wealth of archival material and enhanced by more than a hundred illustrations, it provides a new perspective on the historical thought of Imperial and Weimar Germany and the formation of a concept that is still with us today.

Yet, where is the historical locus of contemporary literature? Unlike attempts to situate contemporary literature in terms of historical events, the present study attempts to develop a structural history based on Pierre Bourdieu's concept of the "literary field", thereby shedding light on the long road to the genesis of contemporary literature since the s.

In The Making of a Terrorist, Jeffrey Champlin examines key figures from three canonical texts from the German-language literature of the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries: Goethe's Gotz von Berlichingen, Schiller's Die Rauber, and Kleist's Michael Kohlhaas.
Champlin situates these readings within a larger theoretical and historical context, exploring the mechanics, aesthetics, and poetics of terror while explicating the emergence of the terrorist personality in modernity. In engaging and accessible prose, Champlin explores the ethical dimensions of violence and interrogates an ethics of textual violence. C47 Unknown. Meine deutsche Literatur seit .

Description Book — pages : illustrations ; 24 cm. Summary Part I. Studies of literary responses to National Socialism between and have largely focused on exiled writers; opposition within Germany and Austria is less well understood.
Yet in both countries there were writers who continued to publish imaginative literature that did not conform to Nazi precepts: the authors of the so-called Inner Emigration. They withdrew from the regime and sought to express their nonconformity through camouflaged texts designed to offer sensitized readers encouragement, reassurance, and consolation. This book provides a critical, historically informed reassessment of these writers.

It is innovative in scope, in its use of little-known sources, in placing authors and texts in a detailed social and political context, and in analyzing seminal topoi and tropes of oppositional discourse. One of the most extensive studies of the topic in German or English, it provides a state-of-the-art text for literary historians, scholars, and students of German literature, but also, thanks to its accessibility and translation of all material, serves as an introduction for English-speaking readers to this poorly understood group of writers.
