Germany in the eighteenth century : the social background of the literary revival by Walter Horace Bruford( Book )

77 editions published between 1934 and 1978 in English and German and held by 1,446 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the balls and masquerades of the court to the half-naked children of the peasants; from hunting and winter sports to details of authorship and publishing; from law to sanitation, this 1935 book plunges the reader into life in Germany two hundred years ago. The author links everyday life and current traditions with some of the outstanding features in the literature and thought of the age, thus providing a full picture of the political, economic and social background to the intellectual and artistic achievements of the period. In the process he has brought out some of the enduring processes of German life

The German tradition of self-cultivation : bildung from Humboldt to Thomas Mann by Walter Horace Bruford( Book )

19 editions published between 1975 and 2010 in English and German and held by 874 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a lecture in 1923, Thomas Mann said that the ordinary middle-class German had never considered culture to include an interest in politics, and still not do so. 'To ask him to transfer his allegations from inwardness to the objective, to politics, to what the peoples of Europe call freedom, would seem to him to amount to a demand that he should do violence to his own nature and abandon his sense of national identity.' The idea of the true freedom which comes to the man who lives as much as possible in the invisible world of culture and accepts as a kind of fate his social, political and material circumstances, was indeed at the heart of the German idealism of Goethe's day, and unworldliness went along with very great achievements in literature, scholarship and philosophy. Bildung, self-cultivation, came to be as natural a requirement of educated middle-class life as sport was in England. Hence the cliché in 1914 of the 'good' Germany, so unaccountably displaced, as it seemed, by a country bent, like its neighbours, on national power and material progress. In this book, originally published in 1975, Professor Bruford provides a sequel to Culture and Society in Classical Weimar 1775-1806, and shows how the ideal of self-cultivation has entered into the thought of a number of highly individual German philosophers, theologians, poets and novelists, each in his own corner of the rapidly changing world of the nineteenth century. -- from back cover
