In praise of athletic beauty by Hans Ulrich Gumbrecht( Book )
8 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 634 libraries worldwide
"By the hundreds of millions we show up, stand in line, turn on, and tune in to watch, mesmerized, as athletes perform. And yet this experience, so widely craved and intensely felt, we commonly dismiss as "only a game." The vicarious thrill, anxiety release, competitive spirit: in place of these traditional answers to the mystery of sports' allure, Gumbrecht proposes a more powerful and provocative alternative. The fascination with watching sports, he argues, is probably the most popular and potent contemporary form of aesthetic experience. In exploring this idea, Gumbrecht develops a reflection on the pleasures of sports spectatorship and the nature of athletic beauty."--BOOK JACKET

Atmosphere, mood, Stimmung : on a hidden potential of literature by Hans Ulrich Gumbrecht( Book )
8 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 345 libraries worldwide
"What are the various atmospheres or moods that the reading of literary works can trigger? Hans Ulrich Gumbrecht has long argued that the function of literature is not so much to describe, or to re-present, as to make present. Here, he goes one step further, exploring the substance and reality of language as a material component of the world--impalpable hints, tones, and airs that, as much as they may be elusive, are no less matters of actual fact... Conveying personal encounters with poetry, song, painting, and the novel, this book thus gestures toward the intangible and in the process, constitutes a bold defense of the subjective experience of the arts."--page [4] of cover

"Philology - the discovery, editing, and presentation of historical texts - was once a firmly established discipline that formed the core study for students across a wide range of linguistic and literary fields. Although philology departments are steadily disappearing from contemporary educational establishments, in this book Hans Ulrich Gumbrecht demonstrates that the problems, standards, and methods of philology remain as vital as ever."--BOOK JACKET
