Parzival by Wolfram( Book )

12 editions published between 1961 and 1990 in 3 languages and held by 631 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A new translation of Parzival, together with the fragments of Titurel, an elegiac offshoot of Parzival, and the nine love-songs attributed to Wolfram. Vast in its scope, incomparably dense in its imagery, Wolfram von Eschenback's Parzival ranks alongside Dante's Divine Comedy as one of the foremost narrative works to emerge from medieval Europe." "Parzival is the greatest of the medieval Grail romances. In its depth and complexity of characterisation this work of the early thirteenth century anticipates the modern novel. It encompasses deed of chivalry, tournaments and sieges, courtly love, and other erotic undertakings, but also sin and penance, and a deeply moving study in depression. Centre stage are the Grail Castle and Arthur's Round Table, but the pagan world of the Orient is also reflected." "Parzival has inspired and influenced works as diverse as Wagner's Parsifal and Lohengrin, Franz Kafka's The Castle, Terry Jones's film The Fisher King, and Umberto Eco's Baudolino. Cyril Edwards's thoughtful translation vividly conveys the power of this complex, wide-ranging medieval masterpiece."--BOOK JACKET

Iphigenia in Tauris, a play in five acts by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe( Book )

8 editions published between 1963 and 1991 in English and German and held by 529 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This drama in blank verse, the first important work of Goethe's Classical period, stands the Iphigenia-Orestes story as treated by Aeschylus, Euripides, and Racine on its head. In Goethe's drama Iphigenia, daughter of Agamemnon, leader of the Greek forces in the Trojan War, in exile as a priestess in the barbaric land of the Tauri (Crimea), breaks the Tantalid family curse. She saves the life of her brother Orestes who has murdered his mother because she murdered his father. The female identity of the central character is all-important. It is uniquely her voice that brings resolution - not by preaching values but by the visceral force of belief in the rightness of the language of the heart. Translated from the German by Roy Pascal

Götz von Berlichingen; a play by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe( Book )

7 editions published between 1965 and 1991 in English and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die mittelalterliche Ritterfreiheit fährt mit dem alten Haudegen dahin: Götz von Berlichingen von Jagsthausen hat Probleme mit Bischof von Bamberg, der die freien Ritter des Mittelalters strengeren Gesetzen unterwerfen will. Ein solcher ist Götz, und er wehrt sich entschieden gegen die Gefangennahme seines Reiterknechtes und für die Freiheit. Trotz seiner unbedingten Loyalität zum Kaiser, trotz seiner Rechtschaffenheit und auch trotz seiner geradezu überirdischen Kräfte geht Götz von Berlichingen den Finten und Intrigen seiner Feinde auf den Leim und so mit seiner Freiheitsliebe zugrunde. Die ganzseitigen Bilder sind ästhetisch gut gestaltet, nicht ohne Komik bisweilen, und geben einen Eindruck vom Scheppern mittelalterlicher Rüstungen, vom Liebreiz mittelalterlicher Damen und von der Enge mittelalterlicher Städte. Ab 12 Jahren, ausgezeichnet, Ruedi W. Schweizer
