Women against Napoleon : historical and fictional responses to his rise and legacy ( Book )
5 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 162 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Although Prussia's beloved Queen Luise and the Swiss-born aristocrat and writer Germaine de Stael were Napoleon Bonaparte's best-known female opponents, women's discontent with Napoleon and the Napoleonic wars was more widespread - and vocal - than once assumed. Women Against Napoleon expands our awareness of the range of women's responses to the despot by presenting an international spectrum of female opposition, including contemporary letters, diaries, and published writings, as well as historical fiction of the twentieth century. By juxtaposing analyses of these materials, this volume forges new links between literary, historical, and gender scholarship

Circe : Oper mit der Musik von Pasquale Anfossi ; Übersetzung und Bearbeitung des italienischen Librettos für das Weimarer Theater by Pasquale Anfossi ( Book )
4 editions published in 2007 in German and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Die Opern des Pasquale Anfossi waren im 18. Jahrhundert sehr beliebt. Wenig bekannt ist, dass Goethe als Weimarer Theaterdirektor Anfossis>La Maga Circe<(Die Zauberin Circe) inszenierte und sogar eine erweiterte Fassung der Farce plante. Goethe übersetzte die Gesänge. Die zwei Fassungen der Rezitative, die hier erstmals aus den Handschriften gedruckt werden, erlauben einen neuen Blick auf Goethes Theaterarbeit und Zusammenarbeit mit seinem Schwager Vulpius

Thinking outside of the cardboard box : the conditions, meanings and myths of "Obdachlosigkeit"in German fiction and film by Kirsten Elisabeth Kumpf Baele ( )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
This dissertation identifies a small range of German literary and filmic works beginning in 1898 and ending in 2009 in which the embodiment of homelessness demonstrates a reassertion of space. Despite the recent attention paid to space and the sense of permeability and movement that they can suggest in narratives, literary experts have published little on what surely must be one of the most politically and socially-charged of all spaces--uncanny spaces that include individuals so common to us and yet also so varyingly different--that is, homeless spaces. This liminal zone frequently opens up the potential for inner transformation and unforeseen possibility for not only the homeless character but quite possibly for other marginalized groups as well. The work done here looks for homeless instances in modern German artistic expression that suggest productivity, possibility, change and even power in the transient literary and filmic character and how such manifestations relate to Germany's larger social, historical and political contexts. I juxtapose my textual findings on German homelessness with relevant theories like liminality, geocriticism and ecofeminism in order to illustrate how the transgression of boundaries can tell us much about the deconstruction of binaries such as domestic/public, male/female, young/old and the transfer of power; and to demonstrate that a German homeless condition is constructed differently through discrete social and cultural networks and through alternative spaces. I am particularly interested in the lack of analyses concerning homeless women and children and what this suggests about broader trends in gender and age formation with regard to a person's home or lack thereof. My attention to the textual aesthetics and narratological devices that underline homelessness offer additional insight into its poetics and literary significance

Positioning Gina Kaus a transnational career from Vienna novelist and playwright to Hollywood scriptwriter by Regina Christiane Range ( )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
My particular focus on the representation of femininity and female agency sheds light on how the émigrée Kaus, who had been known as an ardent feminist in Europe, successfully managed to subvert ideas of heteronormative gender and power discourses even within the restrictive limits of the Hollywood apparatus. The dissertation further investigates the understudied text form screenplay and the practice of screenwriting. It examines for the first time various unpublished film script versions of the The Wife Takes a Flyer and Three Secrets and thus promotes the film script as a textual form worthy of investigation and integration in both literary and film studies. The script analysis pays attention to the collaborative nature, considers the various versions and revisions the script underwent, offers a comparison to the movies and evaluates the script in its multi-functionality, style, and aesthetics. The scripts also give insight into the ways in which Kaus's exilic consciousness permeates her scriptwriting. My close analysis of Kaus's autobiography, which was published in 1979 and targeted at a German-speaking readership, uncovers the ways in which exile is reflected in the practice of autobiographical writing. The dissertation focuses foremost on the narrative strategies as well as omissions in Kaus's attempt to re-inscribe herself into the literary and artistic scene of Vienna and Berlin; and her effort to position herself among the prominent and predominantly male German-Jewish diaspora in Hollywood. I also shed light on her ability to adapt to the United States and her decision to remain and become a citizen. Her perception of exile as an opportunity, rather than as a limitation is an important new aspect in the existing exile research. Among the Jewish-German exile community in Hollywood, Gina Kaus had a truly transnational career and deserves more credit for her filmic works

Breaking down generational barriers Gottfried Keller's novella 'Das fähnlein der sieben Aufrechten' and its contemporary reception by Amber Rose Wozniak ( )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Literary works contribute to the traditions of culture and unity. Gottfried Keller uses this notion to portray a realistic image of his society in which there is a need for social and political change and progression. Keller's novella Das Fähnlein der Sieben Aufrechten explores the discontinuity between generations in nineteenth-century Switzerland. This investigation explores Keller's presentation of his critique through the portrayal of the existing barriers between generations. It examines how Keller's novella depicts to overcome generational differences through the breaking down of these barriers. In addition, it discusses how a contemporary portrayal adapts and interprets Keller's novella
