Most widely held works by Dieter Borchmeyer
Drama and the world of Richard Wagner by Dieter Borchmeyer( Book )

17 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in German and English and held by 666 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Richard Wagner continues to be the most controversial artist in history, a perpetually troubling figure in our cultural consciousness. The unceasing debate over his works and their impact - for and against - is one reason why there has been no genuinely comprehensive modern account of his musical dramas until now. Dieter Borchmeyer's book is the first to present an overall picture of these musical dramas from the standpoint of literary and theatrical history. It extends from the composer's early works - still largely ignored - to the Ring Cycle and Parsifal, and includes Wagner's unfinished works and operas he never set to music. Through lively prose, we come to see Wagner as a librettist - and as a man of letters - rather than primarily as a musical composer."--Jacket

Richard Wagner : theory and theatre by Dieter Borchmeyer( Book )

7 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 438 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Richard Wagner has come to be seen as the quintessential artist of the nineteenth century. Borchmeyer here provides the first systematic and comprehensive account of Wagner's aesthetic theory, examining his hitherto neglected prose writings and his ideas on music drama from the various standpoints of literature, the linking of ideas, and the sociology of art. The preeminent importance for Wagner of classical Greek art and mythology emerges with particular clarity, while his links with the great figures and forms of world theatre-- Shakespeare, the commedia dell'arte, the popular theatre, and the puppet theatre--are traced in detail. The influence on Wagner of the historical and social novel is also discussed. The author provides the first comprehensive analysis of Cosima Wagner's Diaries, and throws unexpected sidelights on Wagner's relationship with Nietzsche, in particular his important contribution to Nietzsche's The Birth of Tragedy

Was ist deutsch? Die Suche einer Nation nach sich selbst by Dieter Borchmeyer( Book )

10 editions published in 2017 in German and held by 257 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dieter Borchmeyers große Erzählung von uns Deutschen: Spiegelbild und Wegweiser zugleich Die Frage "Was ist deutsch?" ist ihrerseits typisch deutsch - keine andere Nation hat so sehr um die eigene Identität gerungen und tut es bis heute. Wie vielfältig und faszinierend die Antworten auf diese Frage im Lauf der Jahrhunderte ausfielen, das zeigt Dieter Borchmeyer: Von Goethe über Wagner bis zu Thomas Mann schildert er, wie der Begriff des Deutschen sich wandelte und immer wieder neue Identitäten hervorbrachte. Er erzählt von einem Land zwischen Weltbürgertum und nationaler Überheblichkeit, vom deutschen Judentum, das unsere Auffassung des Deutschen wesentlich mitgeprägt hat, von der Karriere der Nationalhymne und der deutschesten aller Sehnsüchte: der nach dem Süden. Borchmeyer erklärt, wie gerade die deutsche Provinz - etwa Weimar und Bayreuth - Weltkultur schaffen konnte und was es für Deutschland bedeutet, sich entweder als Staats- oder als Kulturnation zu verstehen. Dieter Borchmeyer zeichnet ein facettenreiches und eindrückliches Bild des deutschen Nationalcharakters. In einer Zeit der Umbrüche, in der Deutschland wieder einmal seine Rolle sucht, ist diese große Geschichte der deutschen Selbstsuche Spiegelbild und Wegweiser zugleich

Zu Richard Wagners 200. Geburtstag hat der große Wagner-Experte Dieter Borchmeyer eine Biographie geschrieben, die die Summe seiner jahrzehntelangen Wagner-Forschungen darstellt. Wagners Leben mit all seinen künstlerischen und politischen Implikationen bettet Borchmeyer ein in eine ungemein aufschluss- und kenntnisreiche Beleuchtung des Werks, und zwar nicht nur des musikalisch-dramatischen, sondern auch des literarischen und theoretischen, im Spannungsfeld von Wagners Leben, seiner persönlichen Beziehungen und seiner Zeit. Interpretatorische Kurzschlüsse zwischen Leben und Werk, die gerade die Wagner-Literatur bis in die jüngste Zeit hinein vorgenommen hat, werden dabei ausdrücklich vermieden
