Mimesis : the representation of reality in Western literature by Erich Auerbach( Book )

102 editions published between 1953 and 2013 in English and German and held by 3,376 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Back Cover: One of the most significant works of literary criticism of this century, Erich Auerbach's MIMESIS undertakes a new and profound approach to major moments in Western literature. More than a work of literary criticism, this study is filled with insights into the Western imagination and Western culture itself, in its repeated attempts to master and control reality and experience. Auerbach's studies range from the beginnings of Western literary consciousness to the present. The significant moments of art and awareness he studies are in themselves keys to the meaning of Homer, Petronius, Gregory of Tours, The song of Roland, Chretien de Troyes, Dante, Boccaccio, Rabelais, Montaigne, Shakespeare, Cevantes, Moliere, Racine, the Abbe Prevost, Schiller, Stendhal, Edmond and Jules de Goncourt, Zola, Virginia Woolf, and others. Comprehensive as his survey is in scope, the studies themselves are closely focused, penetrating, and minute, and serve to show how the strategies of language and rhetoric are the ultimate ways in which the various images are distinguishable from each other in their grasp and representation of reality. The major revolutios in the sense and portrayal of reality are seen to reverberate deeply with significances relevant to transformations in our culture
Dante, poet of the secular world by Erich Auerbach( Book )

64 editions published between 1929 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 1,769 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A precursor and companion to Erich Auerbach's majestic Mimesis, Dante: Poet of the Secular World is both a comprehensive introduction to the work of one of the greatest poets and a brilliantly provocative and stimulating essay in the history of ideas. Here Auerbach, acclaimed by writers and scholars as various as Terry Eagleton, Guy Davenport, and Alfred Kazin as one of the greatest critics of the twentieth century, argues paradoxically but powerfully that it is to Dante, supreme among Christian poets, that we owe the concept of the secular world. Dante's poetry, Auerbach shows, offers an extraordinary synthesis of the sensuous and the conceptual, and individual and the universal, that redefined notions of human character and fate and opened the way into modernity
Literary language & its public in late Latin antiquity and in the Middle Ages by Erich Auerbach( Book )

114 editions published between 1957 and 2018 in 5 languages and held by 1,671 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Quest'opera fu portata a termine poco prima della scomparsa dell'autore. Suoi temi principali sono: il sermo humilis, come forma cristiana dello stile sublime antico, nei primi autori cristiani e nella prosa latina del primo medioevo; la rinascita dello stile elevato nelle nuove condizioni di vita del tardo medioevo; la storia dei secoli in cui non esistevano un pubblico letterario e una lingua letteraria generalmente intesa, dal tempo di Tacito e Plinio fino ai primi documenti delle letterature in lingua popolare e a Dante. Questi saggi colmano il vuoto lasciato nell'altra sua grande opera, Mimesis, per il periodo 600-1100, il meno studiato della letteratura europea. Ma non si tratta di un'integrazione dovuta a puro desiderio di completezza. Da un lato, qui sono collocati in primo piano i problemi centrali dell'interesse auerbachiano: le basi e gli elementi di unità della civiltà europea, visti nella genesi storica del nesso eredità classica-società moderna; la formazione di quello stile letterario che costituisce tuttora il sostrato delle letterature europee, in rapporto ai tipi determinati di pubblico nazionale sorti nel tardo medioevo. Dall'altro, in questi saggi concentrati su un "campionario" stilistico omogeneo, Auerbach è ricondotto a un impiego più esatto e penetrante del suo metodo, che consiste nel risalire dall'analisi stilistica monografica alla costruzione sintetica e al quadro storico-sociologico d'assieme

Studi su Dante by Erich Auerbach( Book )

96 editions published between 1963 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 394 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La raccolta degli "Studi su Dante" contiene i saggi che Erich Auerbach ha scritto dal 1929 fino alla vigilia della morte. In questi scritti definisce l'importanza del concetto di "figura" nella cultura tardo-antica e ricostruisce il complesso rapporto tra struttura e poesia nella "Divina Commedia". L'autore giunge al risultato allargando l'indagine a tutta la civiltà cristiana e mostra come l'intelligenza di Paolo, Tertulliano, Agostino o Bernardo di Chiaravalle sia propedeutica e necessaria per una lettura "globale" del capolavoro dantesco
Time, history, and literature : selected essays of Erich Auerbach by Erich Auerbach( Book )

11 editions published between 2013 and 2016 in English and held by 363 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Erich Auerbach (1892-1957), best known for his classic literary study Mimesis, is celebrated today as a founder of comparative literature, a forerunner of secular criticism, and a prophet of global literary studies. This book presents a selection of Auerbach's essays, many of which are little known outside the German-speaking world
Die neue Wissenschaft über die gemeinschaftliche Natur der Völker by Giambattista Vico( Book )

36 editions published between 1924 and 2010 in German and held by 290 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Main description: Giambattista Vico (1668-1744) was one of the most original and idiosyncratic philosophers before Kant and Hegel. Although Giorgio Vasari had already diagnosed a cycle of rise, blossoming and decline in the history of art, Vico was the first to base this on a philosophical system. Isolated in Naples from direct contact with the philosophical life of his times, he worked at his grand design of the cycles of rise, blossoming, decline and eternal return which he saw in all areas of culture. His points of reference were ancient mythology and Greek and Roman history. To that extent, he is regarded today as the founder of the philosophy of history and the precursor of a tradition which extends to Hegel and Oswald Spengler's "Decline of the West."

Gesammelte Aufsätze zur romanischen Philologie by Erich Auerbach( Book )

20 editions published between 1967 and 2018 in German and Multiple languages and held by 273 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Seit dem Erscheinen von "Mimesis. Dargestellte Wirklichkeit in der abendländischen Literatur" im Jahr 1946 ist Erich Auerbach (18921957) als Klassiker der Geisteswissenschaften bekannt. Die Entstehung des Buches im Istanbuler Exil ohne westliche Bibliotheken ist legendär. Weniger bekannt sind seine luziden Essays und detailreichen Studien zur romanischen Philologie, die Gustav Konrad und Fritz Schalk posthum ergänzt um wichtige Rezensionen herausbrachten. Methodisch stand der deutsch-jüdische Gelehrte sowohl der Frankfurter Literatursoziologie seines Freundes Walter Benjamin nahe als auch der hermeneutischen Tradition an der Universität Marburg; zudem gibt es Nähen zur Ikonographie der Warburg Schule. Das Nachwort gibt im wissenschaftshistorischen Rahmen eine Skizze von Erich Auerbach als Kulturphilosophen im Exil, der eine vieldeutige wie außergewöhnliche Position zwischen jüdischen, christlichen und säkularen Traditionen des Denkens einnimmt. Die Neuausgabe der "Gesammelten Aufsätze" wurde um vier Arbeiten werkgeschichtlich ergänzt. Eine von ihnen, "Vicos Auseinandersetzung mit Descartes", galt bislang als verschollen und wurde erst kürzlich gefunden. Eine ausführliche Bibliographie schließt Lücken der Primärliteratur

Über die Exiljahre in der Türkei, in denen der deutsch-jüdische Literaturwissenschaftler Erich Auerbach sein Hauptwerk Mimesis verfasste, ist bis heute nur wenig bekannt. Eine große Überraschung war daher die Entdeckung der Vorträge, Aufsätze und kürzeren Beiträge, die Auerbach nach der Vertreibung aus Deutschland (1935) während des Exils in Istanbul geschrieben hat. Sie wurden zuerst in türkischer Sprache veröffentlicht und erscheinen nun in diesem Band zum ersten Mal in deutscher Übersetzung. Erich Auerbach hatte aufgrund der räumlichen und kulturellen Distanz seines Exils das immer schneller ins Verderben stürzende Europa von außen zu betrachten. Diese besondere Situation prägte seinen Blick. Istanbul bedeutete für ihn aber nicht nur eine sichere Entfernung zu den schrecklichen Ereignissen in Deutschland, sondern ermöglichte zugleich eine produktive, wenn auch schwierige Auseinandersetzung mit den offenen Problemen eines Landes, das sich in einer heiklen politischen Übergangsphase befand. Deutlicher als in allen anderen seiner Schriften übernimmt Auerbach hier die Rolle des Kulturhistorikers und engagierten Intellektuellen: Er untersucht Phänomene und Protagonisten der europäischen Geschichte unter dem Gesichtspunkt der gegenwärtigen sozialen und politischen Lage. Der Krieg, die Entstehung der Nationalsprachen, die Beziehung zwischen historischem Absolutismus und moderner Demokratie bilden zusammen mit der Schilderung von großen Figuren wie etwa Dante, Machiavelli oder Montesquieu den Ausgangspunkt für eine kulturgeschichtliche Deutung, in der die zeitgenössische Krisensituation im Lichte der Lösungsversuche der Vergangenheit betrachtet wird
