Geschichte der Abderiten by Christoph Martin Wieland( Book )

198 editions published between 1781 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 804 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Satire first published in part in the periodical Der teutsche Merkur in 1774, and complete in book form in 1780. The book is a satire on German provinciality. Its setting and disguise is the ancient Greek town of Abdera in Thrace, the inhabitants of which (with the exception of Democritus) were noted for their narrow-mindedness

History of the Abderites by Christoph Martin Wieland( )

3 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 617 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The novel opens with the return of Democritus after many years from an extended tour abroad. He is the main character in the first part of the book, and combines the traits of his historical counterpart with those of an eighteenth-century empirical scientist, along with the moral attributes of the ideal gentleman. The Abderites think Democritus a very odd sort of fellow and cannot at all comprehend what they consider his outlandish notions about a great variety of subjects. Soon it is quite clear that Democritus is everything that they are not. Moreover, his having come home with a black mistress seems to support their conviction that there is something wrong in his head, for they fail entirely to understand how anyone who is not white could be considered beautiful. In the Fourth Book, the most renowned and hilarious part of the novel, acute civil strife over a trial concerning the shadow of an ass threatens the very existence of the little republic

Wielands Werke : historisch-kritische Ausgabe by Christoph Martin Wieland( )

7 editions published in 2009 in German and held by 515 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The volume combines two of Wieland's major works from 1764/1765. Der Sieg der Natur über die Schwärmerey, oder die Abentheuer des Don Sylvio von Rosalva (The Victory of Nature over Madness, or The Adventures of Don Sylvio de Rosalva) is his first prose novel, written in the tradition of the Cervantic picaresque novel. His expertly crafted Comische Erzählungen (Comic Tales) in verse - the scandal of 1765 - brought Wieland a reputation as a frivolous rococo poet and the charge of indulging in "Epicurean swinishness". It was not until twenty years later that the author admitted his authorship of these risquè erotic tales, which are rightly seen as one of the major achievements of German rococo poetry

Main description: Dieser Band zeigt das große Pensum, das Wieland bei seiner Arbeit als Herausgeber des 'Teutschen Merkur' zu bewältigen hatte. Neben kleineren Aufsätze und Miszellen verfasst er programmatische Abhandlungen, wie die philosophische Reflexion 'Was ist Wahrheit' (1776), die ästhetische Grundlagenschrift 'Gedanken über die Ideale der Alten' (1777) oder den Aufsatz 'Über das göttliche Recht der Obrigkeit' (1777). Aber auch das dichterische Schaffen kommt nicht zum Erliegen, so enthält der Band das Libretto 'Rosemunde' (1777) und das Kleinepos 'Liebe um Liebe' (1776)
