  • Avant-Garde Revisited: Else Lasker-Schüler A Brief Introduction
    • Abstract: There is a remarkable autobiographical scene in Else Lasker-Schüler's 1911–12 series of texts "Briefe nach Norwegen":Lebe das Leben ja tableaumäßig, ich bin immer im Bilde. Manchmal werde ich unvorteilhaft hingehängt, oder es verschiebt sich etwas in meinem Milieu, auch bin ich nicht mit der Einrahmung zufrieden. Einrahmungen sind Einengungen, Unkunst, Grenzen, die sich kein Gott, aber ein Gottdilletant zieht. Die runden Rahmen haben noch etwas Kreisendes, aber die viereckigen, neumodischen, sind so ganz menschlich aus dem Kosmos getreten. Ich sehe also aus dem Bilde das Leben an; was nehm ich ernster von beiden' Beides. Ich sterbe am Leben und atme im Bilde wieder auf. Hurrah!(3.1: 232)The ostentatiously ... Read More

  • The Birth of the Poetess from the Spirit of the Avant-Garde: Else
           Lasker-Schüler's Die Nächte Tino von Bagdads
    • Abstract: Else Lasker-Schüler's Die Nächte Tino von Bagdads (The nights of Tino from Baghdad) is an iridescent work, combining prose and poetry, the sublime and the grotesque, and the autobiographical and the fantastic. Critics have often regarded it as an immature early work. One of the first doctoral theses on the poetess remarked that one could indeed "write a commentary on the Nächte as on Faust," but that "such a commentary would be unnecessary for literary studies" (Goldstein 12).1 What is considered "necessary" changes with the times, however, and already implies an interpretation: whereas the postwar period "needed" the restorative eternalizing of the poetess as a conciliatory figure of redemption, the seventies ...

  • Postcards from the Avant-Garde
    • Abstract: In 1916, the cultural historian and book collector Aby Warburg inherited a small sum of money. The legacy came with strings attached. Warburg had already spent much of his own share of the Warburg family fortune on his library project, but the inheritance was to be spent for his personal enjoyment only. Instead of purchasing printed matter, library supplies, or travel tickets, Warburg invested the money in art. His scholarly research had largely focused on Renaissance art and the afterlife of ancient Greece. Now, however, Warburg bought a painting by Franz Marc, a young Bavarian artist who, together with Wassily Kandinsky, had founded an art movement just a few years earlier, Der Blaue Reiter (The Blue Rider). ...

  • Writing of Attractions: Else Lasker-Schüler's Avant-Garde Techniques
    • Abstract: The international avant-garde makes its entry into German-language discourse in March 1912. Two successive issues of Herwarth Walden's art journal Der Sturm (vol. 3, nos. 103–4) contain the first translations of two important programmatic statements of Italian futurism. These translations of the 1910 "Manifesto of the Futurist Painters" (published under the title "Manifest der Futuristen") and the 1909 "Foundation and Manifesto of Futurism" by Filippo Tommaso Marinetti (printed as "Manifest des Futurismus") not only make the futurists' central goals accessible to a German-speaking audience. They also prepare the way for the first exhibition of futurist painting in Germany, which Walden organizes in April and May ... Read More

  • Reading the Visible: Else Lasker-Schüler's Early Prose Texts and the
           Small Form
    • Abstract: When Kurt Hiller said of Else Lasker-Schüler that her work lacked "das Mentale," that is, a level of reflexivity that exceeds merely sensual and sentimental expression, he was trying to set the record straight after a disastrous encounter with Wieland Herzfelde, who had slapped him in the face at the Café des Westens in 1915 for making disparaging remarks about his revered poet-friend.1 Hiller's sour comment about Lasker-Schüler's lack of reflexivity struck at an aspect of her public persona that invited both praise and controversy from contemporaries, who marveled at her fearless self-presentation as a radical performance artist whose biographical self was all but indistinguishable from the characters she ...

  • Varieté, Telefon, Kino: Die Entstehung des Prinzen von Theben
    • Abstract: "In der Nacht meiner tiefsten Not erhob ich mich zum Prinzen vom Theben." So beschreibt Else Lasker-Schüler in ihrem Essay "Ich räume auf!" (1925) den Beginn ihrer berühmten Selbststilisierung. Und fügt die Frage hinzu: "Welchen Ahnen nachfolgte ich' Welche Mumie salbte meine entschlossene Tat'" (Werke und Briefe 4.1: 69). Der arabische Prinz Jussuf aus der Totenstadt Theben, zu dem sie sich in dieser Nacht ernennt, hat die Josefsgeschichte aus der hebräischen Bibel zur Vorlage, die auch im Koran eine wichtige Rolle spielt: Er ist eine Exilfigur, ein Überlebender, ein Ausgesetzter. In Briefen, Zeichnungen und illustrierten Büchern wird der Prinz von Theben zwischen 1911 und 1923 immer wieder neu beschworen. Der Tod ... Read More

  • Undoing—Creation—Anew: On Else Lasker-Schüler's Der Siebente Tag and
           the Neue Gemeinschaft
    • Abstract: Before the avant-garde movements with which Else Lasker-Schüler would be associated during and after her collaboration with Herwarth Walden on Der Sturm, she participated in the Neue Gemeinschaft, a collective that should have been, as its members repeatedly proclaimed, at the vanguard of a new life, and at a nigh-immeasurable distance from the political and physical spaces of contemporary Wilhelmine Germany.1 Gustav Landauer begins his speech "Durch Absonderung zur Gemeinschaft": "Ungeheuerlich und fast unaussprechbar groß ist der Abstand geworden, der uns, die wir uns selbst als die Vorhut fühlen, von der übrigen Menschheit trennt" (8). Martin Buber seconds this sentiment before the group approximately one year ... Read More

  • The Fringe of Beings: The Poetic Thought of Else Lasker-Schüler
    • Abstract: Those who follow attentively the movements of Else Lasker-Schüler's creative work will invariably be drawn to borders, fringes, and seams as points of attraction.1 As one might expect, the border, the fringe, or the seam—each endowed with its specific set of associations and resonances—cannot account for the totality of her writing. An edge can never represent the whole text or the text as a whole. These poetic elements nevertheless belong to a set of strategic markers indicating a zone of poetic intensity toward which her language gravitates. This poetic zone has, as we shall see, its own spatiality and temporality, its own order and disorder of beings, and one can understand why Lasker-Schüler sought to linger ... Read More

  • Lasker-Schüler's Languages: Hebrew and Hieroglyphics
    • Abstract: I will begin with a quotation from Else Lasker-Schüler in its original language:Ani ben-hamelech mi-Teben sholeach lecha ethamichtav hazeh asher nifkad me-itivenichtav bichtav hakinorim hana'ale sheliri ha-ivrit Ir-Zahav:vehineni meshiv lecha et etzem hagulgoletasher beyamim avaru kavashta lema'anibamilchama:adom yifga becha hachesed ka'asher natanli linshom od:yavo-na dami alecha:(Der Malik 87)These words are Hebrew. But Lasker-Schüler did not know Hebrew. Although she famously maintained that her works were composed in Hebrew, she did not, however, claim that she knew Hebrew (Shedletzky 171). And her contention is correct: at least in the single example cited here, she did in fact write in ... Read More

  • The Politics of Dedication: Else Lasker-Schüler's Poems
    • Abstract: Sometimes new ideas are not ushered into the world with drums and trumpets; they approach us on doves' feet. Else Lasker-Schüler's book Die gesammelten Gedichte entered the public sphere with a title that doesn't draw particular attention to itself. It sounds rather like the title of a posthumous publication, assembled without too much editorial effort, structured chronologically. Nothing would leave a more distorted impression of the actual contents than this title. Else Lasker-Schüler, a master of creating beautiful and absolutely unusual titles for her books—Styx, Die Nächte Tino von Bagdads, Meine Wunder, Hebräische Balladen—managed to publish this volume as if undercover. Die gesammelten Gedichte—a ... Read More

  • Der Bilderrahmen des Realismus
    • Abstract: Die Programmatik des 'poetischen Realismus' in Deutschland und Texte Fontanes, Kellers, C. F. Meyers, Raabes, Stifters und Storms sind zwar nicht ohne Kontiguität; eine Eins-zu-Eins-Bezugnahme im Sinne von Programm und literarischer Applikation will jedoch nicht so leicht gelingen. Nun ist ja die poetische Programmreflexion oft sehr viel schlichter als die literarische Praxis selbst, und man verpasst in der Regel das Meiste, wenn man hier einsinnige Übertragungen vornimmt. Einzellektüren, die der Komplexität der Texte gerecht zu werden versuchen, konterkarieren daher auch sehr schnell alle Konstruktionen, die sich bemühen, eine Regel-Anwendungsbeziehung nachzuweisen.Dennoch beginnen die nachfolgenden Ausführungen ...

  • Reizende Aussichten: Aesthetic and Scientific Observation in Albrecht von
           Haller's Die Alpen
    • Abstract: Albrecht von Haller (1708–77) defined the field of modern physiology, made significant contributions to botany as well as to the experimental scientific method more generally, and was also widely known in his time as a man of letters for his 1729/32 poem Die Alpen. The 49 stanzas of alexandrine verse were translated into several European languages and broadly captured the popular imagination of the time.1 Also likely because of its ubiquitous readership, the poem became immortalized already during Haller's life as Gotthold Ephraim Lessing's negative example of the splintering, stultifying effects of the over-abundance of description in his 1766 Laokoon: oder über die Grenzen der Malerei und Poesie. Haller himself ... Read More

  • The Chatter of the Visible: Montage and Narrative in Weimar Germany by
           Patrizia C. McBride (review)
    • Abstract: In her interesting and insightful book, The Chatter of the Visible, the Germanist and Musil scholar Patrizia C. McBride articulates a novel framework for approaching one of the foundational aesthetic practices of the twentieth century—montage. Rather than focus on one specific aspect of montage, McBride turns her attention to the material, cultural, and signifying practices surrounding its use in aesthetic movements ranging from Dadaism to New Objectivity. This allows her to craft a unique investigation across a range of artists and theorists, including Hannah Höch, Lazlo Moholy-Nagy, Walter Benjamin, Albert Renger-Patzsch, and Kurt Schwitters. Together these figures generate a constellation for original ... Read More

  • Sebald's Vision by Carol Jacobs (review)
    • Abstract: Der Titel von Carol Jacobs' Buch zu W. G. Sebald begegnet uns mit einer suggestiven Dichte wie die Titel jenes Autors selbst: Sebald's Vision verweist auf ein Zusammenspiel von Sehsinn, Vorstellung und Traumbild, konkreter Ansicht und weiterreichender Vision. Das Augenmerk dabei auf vielfältige Tropen des Sehens zu legen oder selbst eine Konzentration auf jene unstillbar verstörende Kraft der Photographien und Abbildungen in Schwindel. Gefühle, Die Ausgewanderten oder Die Ringe des Saturn wäre allerdings zu eng und zu konventionell für die Autorin von Skirting the Ethical (2008). Jacobs widmet sich den Vorstellungswelten und Sichtweisen Sebalds auf grundsätzliche Art—"So what is it that Sebald is after'" (25). ... Read More

  • Inheriting Walter Benjamin by Gerhard Richter (review)
    • Abstract: For Gerhard Richter, posing the question of what it means to inherit Walter Benjamin first requires an interrogation of what it means to inherit. Alluding to Jacques Derrida's understanding of inheritance, Richter stresses the importance of the undecidable—or "unprogrammable"—nature of inherited knowledge or transmitted legacies (6). Walter Benjamin cannot be inherited without coming to terms with the radical openness of his legacy—an openness that is the very condition of inheritance. For Richter, Benjamin's legacy is not a self-identical one consisting of readily transmissible concepts or a stable philosophical system. Rather, Benjamin's legacy is composed of a rigorous engagement with language that resists ... Read More

  • Walter Benjamin: Politisches Denken ed. by Christine Blättler and
           Christian Voller (review)
    • Abstract: In Zeiten deutlicher Verschiebungen im öffentlich-politischen Diskurs verbindet sich die Hinwendung auf Denker, deren politische Überlegungen die institutionalisierten Debatten kaum je mitbestimmt haben, mit einem gewissen Versprechen. Trotz seiner intensiven und weiter anhaltenden Rezeption seit der deutschen 68er-Bewegung ist Walter Benjamin ein solcher Denker geblieben. Die wenigen und manchmal knappen Äußerungen zum Staat, zur Politik und zum Politischen liegen zerstreut in seinen Schriften, und sie entfalten ihre Bedeutung erst im Rahmen der theologischen, geschichtsphilosophischen sowie der kunst- und kulturkritischen Auseinandersetzungen, in denen sie auftauchen. Diese eigentümlichen Verflechtungen raten ... Read More

  • Transplanting the Metaphysical Organ: German Romanticism between Leibniz
           and Marx by Leif Weatherby (review)
    • Abstract: Transplanting the Metaphysical Organ is a truly impressive work of historical scholarship. Leif Weatherby demonstrates that he has a solid grasp of the German philosophical tradition, including both major figures (Kant, Fichte, Hegel, and Schelling) and those who are less well-known outside the field of German studies. As the title suggests, he takes the familiar concept of the organ and reveals it to be at the crux of a rapidly changing philosophical landscape, whose terrain encompasses metaphysics, the philosophy of the subject, the history of science, literature, and aesthetics. One of the strengths of this project is the careful balance it maintains between unity and complexity. At the same time, Transplanting ... Read More
