  • What Goethe Heard: Special Section on Hearing and Listening in the Long
           Eighteenth Century
    • Abstract: The three essays in this special section ask a deceptively simple and seldom addressed question: What did Goethe (and his contemporaries) hear' While there are numerous monographs and essays on Goethe and visuality, sound and the acoustic dimension have not been explored in the same focused, sustained way in Goethe studies. Indeed, the acoustic dimension has often been marginalized in Goethe scholarship and in eighteenth-century studies more generally, in which the Enlightenment "hegemony of the visual" tends to reproduce itself.1 Both in the cultural production of the "long eighteenth century" and in latter-day scholarship, the acoustic appears as the marginalized other of both textuality and visuality. In ... Read More

  • Behind Herder's Tympanum: Sound and Physiological Aesthetics 1800/1900
    • Abstract: In early 1769, at the age of twenty-five, Johann Gottfried Herder composed the last of his so-called 'kritische Wälder' (critical forests), a series of essays responding to the aesthetic theories of contemporaries such as Christian Adolf Klotz, Friedrich Just Riedel and Gotthold Ephraim Lessing. Drawing most extensively on Lessing's foundational media-theoretical work, Laokoon oder über die Grenzen der Mahlerey und Poesie (Laokoon, or the Limits of Painting and Poetry, 1766), the series examined the coevolution of the human sensorium and the historical differentiation of the arts. In contrast to his contemporaries, Herder ascribed particular importance to the sense of hearing and dedicated large sections of his ... Read More

  • Becoming the Listener: Goethe's "Der Fischer"
    • Abstract: Der Fischer" ("The Fisherman," 1779), a ballad about a fisherman's encounter with a mermaid written early in Goethe's poetic production, features prominently in the German Lied tradition.2 The poem was hailed by Herder as exactly the kind of text that German poets needed to be writing in order to usher in a golden age of literary achievement, and had its place as the first example of folk poetry characterized by Herder as German in his Volkslieder, among other texts within his larger project that aimed to unite the German states through a shared cultural, linguistic, and mythopoetic background.3 As befits the significance of sound in the Lied genre for Goethe, Herder, and their contemporaries,4 listening crowns the ...

  • Of Barks and Bird Song: Listening in on the Forgotten in Ludwig Tieck's
           Der blonde Eckbert
    • Abstract: In Grammophon. Film. Typewriter (1986), Friedrich Kittler cites in its entirety a fantastical tale by Maurice Renard, originally entitled "La mort et le coquillage" (Death and the Shell, 1907),1 in which an accomplished composer, Nerval, attempts one night to transcribe the sounds he hears from a seashell. Despite being "among the most famous" of composers, Nerval is unable to transcribe the mysterious sounds "dictated" to him, and later that night—perhaps after recognizing the impossibility of his task—he dies. The entire story of Nerval's death is narrated by one of his friends, left unnamed, who throughout the short story describes the night's events to Nerval's doctor. The friend wants to convince the doctor ... Read More

  • Garden Empire or the Sublime Politics of the Chinese-Gothic Style
    • Abstract: Soon after the Storming of the Bastille in Paris shocked all of Europe on July 14, 1789, the Bavarian prince-elector Karl Theodor expedited the project of an English Garden and hastily opened this people's park (Volkspark) with a prominent Chinese tower (chinesischer Turm). The tower in Munich resembles the one in the royal gardens at Kew near London, which was designed and built by the royal architect to George III, Sir William Chambers, in 1762 (fig. 1). A prominent landmark in the metropolitan area of Munich, the English Garden, like Kew Gardens, is one of the earliest public parks in Europe and is meant to express Karl Theodor's gesture of generously sharing his property and governance with his people. Indeed ... Read More

  • Die Austreibung des Populären: Schillers Bürger-Kritik
    • Abstract: In seiner literaturgeschichte des Liebesverrats kommt Peter von Matt auch auf Gottlieb August Bürgers Ballade von Des Pfarrers Tochter von Taubenheim zu sprechen, die 1782 im Göttinger Musenalmanach erschienen ist. Die 38-strophige Ballade behandelt das Schicksal einer Kindsmörderin, die doch selbst ein Opfer ist—ein zweifaches Opfer gar: Einmal eines galanten Verführers, der ihr das Blaue vom Himmel versprach, und dann eines sittenstrengen Vaters, der seiner Tochter eine Moral einzubleuen suchte, die Tugend mit Unschuld verwechselte. Das war der Stoff, aus dem heute noch soap operas oder Schlager fabriziert werden. Wenn diese Schlager dann im Radio oder bei MTV gespielt werden, heißen sie tatsächlich wieder ... Read More

  • Goethe and the Uncontrollable Business of Appropriative Stage Sequels
    • Abstract: In the final decades Of the eighteenth century, writers regularly borrowed fictional characters invented by other authors for use in their own texts. Most commonly, these works took the form of sequels—what German contemporaries dubbed "Fortsetzungen einer fremden Hand" (continuations by another hand),1 and what this article names "appropriative sequels."2 In the absence of formal legal regulation, many authors felt free to write such texts, including Goethe. But little work has been done to understand this surprisingly widespread writing practice, particularly in light of the commercial realities of the German theater.3 As William Hinrichs recently put it: "We do not know what to call these sequels; we do not know ...

  • Repetition and Textual Transmission: The Gothic Motif in Goethe's Faust
           and "Von deutscher Baukunst"
    • Abstract: Act 2 of faust ii opens in the same setting in which the reader first encounters the title figure in part one of the drama. As the title of the first scene in act 2 announces: "HOCHGEWÖLBTES / ENGES, GOTISCHES ZIMMER / ehemals Faustens, unverändert" ("A HIGH-VAULTED, NARROW GOTHIC ROOM / Faust's former study is unchanged").1 While repetitions or "wiederholte Spiegelungen" ("repeated mirror reflections"2) abound in Faust, this particular instance of repetition is noteworthy for the manner in which it initiates a lengthy series of references to the Scholar's Tragedy of part one. Not only is a previous setting recreated, but long-forgotten characters suddenly return, and Mephistopheles and the pupil from ... Read More

    • Abstract: All masculine power is a power to produce. All that is produced, be it the production of woman as female, falls within the register of masculine power. The only, and irresistible, power of femininity is the inverse power of seduction.Ahagiographic painting suggests an emphatic connection between the visual cultures of virgin martyrdom and the figure of Goethe's classical heroine, Iphigenie. On 19 October 1786, Goethe writes:Im Palast Ranuzzi habe ich eine St. Agatha von Raffael gefunden, die wenngleich nicht ganz wohl erhalten ein kostbares Bild ist. Er hat ihr eine gesunde, sichre Jungfräulichkeit gegeben ohne Reitz, doch ohne Kälte und Roheit. Ich habe mir sie wohl gemerkt und werde diesem Ideal meine Iphigenie ... Read More

  • Literary Form and International World Order in Goethe: From Iphigenie to
           Pandora
    • Abstract: The age of Goethe was an age of tumult in the international world. Armed conflicts were frequent and increased in scope and intensity: Seven Years' War (1756–63), American Revolutionary Wars (1775–83), French Revolutionary Wars (1792–1802), Napoleonic Wars (1803–15), the Greek War of Independence (1821–32), to name just a few examples. A key instrument for regulating and ordering the tumultuous international world was international law. The scion of a distinguished lawyer family, Goethe studied, among other things, international law in his academic legal training, following in the footsteps of his maternal forefather Johann Wolfgang Textor who authored Synopsis Juris Gentium (1680), a significant work in the ...

  • Two Gifts from Goethe: Charlotte von Stein's and Charlotte Schiller's
           Writing-Tables
    • Abstract: It is well known that before and after his transformative journey to Italy (1786–88), Goethe enjoyed two intense, decade-long friendships: with Charlotte von Stein in the decade before Italy, and with Charlotte Schiller from 1794 until the latter's death in 1805. What is less known, even now, is that both Charlotte von Stein and Charlotte Schiller were writers in their own right. In 1779 and 1794, Goethe gave the gift of a desk or "writing-table" (Schreibtisch) to Charlotte von Stein and Charlotte Schiller, respectively. In what follows, I explore the histories of these two gifts and the associated acts of gift-giving as staged by Goethe in these two phases of his life. As pieces of furniture used for the purpose ...

  • Goethe's Wilhelm Meister and the Refusal to Grow Up: The Dialectics of
           Bildung
    • Abstract: Johann Wolfgang von Goethe's formative influence on the Bildungsroman is well known. There is a broad critical consensus that Wilhelm Meisters Lehrjahre (1796) is not only the first, but the paradigmatic example of the genre. Yet in this essay I propose a closer look at the literary paradigm itself, which yields a different evaluation of the commitment of Goethe's novel to the idea of Bildung. Seemingly endorsing a rigid teleology—the successful maturation, self-fulfillment, acculturation, and socialization of the protagonist—the Bildungsroman is an intrinsically dialectical literary form. While manifesting a deep interest in childhood, the prerequisite of any formation narrative is a depiction of childhood as a ... Read More

  • "So steh' ich denn hier wehrlos gegen dich'": —Figures of Armament
           and Disarmament in German Drama before and after the French Revolution
    • Abstract: Within the history of European philosophy and literature, the discourse of the human has been closely tied to discourses on forms of governance. The constitution of the city, the republic, the nation, the military apparatus has been linked to that of the human by means of analogies that greatly impact how both the political and the individual are thought of. In Plato's Republic, for example, a group of discussants agrees that the soul is a tripartite entity composed of an appetitive, a spirited, and a rational part. The same structure, Socrates adds, comprises the city.1 In Book Four, the constituents of the city and the human soul are set side by side in pairs: the city's craftsmen and the appetites; the guardians ...

  • Goethe, Maimon, and Spinoza's Third Kind of Cognition
    • Abstract: The relationship between Goethe and Salomon Maimon has only been touched on once in the literature,1 and further clarification of the link between them remains a desideratum. Below I propose that the way to grasp their seeing eye to eye is through Spinoza, and specifically Spinoza's notion of scientia intuitiva. Initially I provide some context in order to illustrate what makes Maimon's role here rather unique. Then I sketch the relationship Maimon and Goethe had both to Spinoza and each other while emphasizing what is at stake. I conclude with various new findings.It is widely known that Goethe was dissatisfied with the reception of his Versuch die Metamorphose der Pflanzen zu erklären (Attempt to Clarify the ... Read More

  • Die Neuvermessung von Lyrik und Prosa in Goethes Novelle
    • Abstract: In seinem Gespräch mit Johann Peter Eckermann vom 18. Januar 1827 erklärte Goethe im Hinblick auf die Novelle, dass er "mit der Prosa jetzt am besten gefahren" sei.1 Aus der Vorgeschichte der Novelle ist bekannt, dass er 1797 im Anschluss an Hermann und Dorothea ein episches Gedicht in Hexametern unter dem Titel "Die Jagd" geplant hatte. Doch Schiller war gegen die Behandlung des Themas in Hexametern und riet zu achtzeiligen Stanzen. Dreißig Jahre später nahm Goethe das Thema der "Wunderbaren Jagd" wieder auf, wie er in seinem Tagebuch vom 4. Oktober 1826 notierte. Wilhelm von Humboldt teilte er wenige Wochen später mit, dass er den damals aufgegebenen Plan "prosaisch auszuführen" gedenke, "da es denn für eine ... Read More

    • Abstract: As Franz-Josef Deiters's title signals, his book offers a sophisticated reading of theater carefully located between theater history, media theory, Michel Foucault's "classical episteme," and Walter Benjamin's "Entweltlichung." Not clear from the title, but equally important, are its exceptionally thoughtful readings of five representative dramatic texts of the first half of the Goethezeit. Both the theory and the readings are presented with a clarity and concreteness that belie the abstraction of the title, yet also precisely illuminate the insights to be gained from the major epistemological shifts delineated by media theory and intellectual history of the last several decades. This structure already emerges in ... Read More

Expanding recent scholarship on gender and sexuality in Goethe's literary corpus, Gustafson foregrounds the varied iterations and diverse constellations of the family manifested in works spanning from 1776 to 1829. The aim of Gustafson's project is to illuminate how "Goethe's literary texts provide a counter discourse to the predominant aristocratic and emerging civil constructions of 'ideal families'" (2) ...

  • Armed Ambiguity: Women Warriors in German Literature and Culture in the
           Age of Goethe by Julie Koser (review)
    • Abstract: In this elegantly written and well-researched book, Julie Koser explores the representation of the woman warrior in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth century. Engaging critical theory from Roland Barthes to Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak, Koser discusses the popular fascination with the armed woman both in historical documents (such as newspapers and travel reports) and in literature in the wake of the French Revolution. By contextualizing these texts with essentialist gender theories of the time as represented by Pierre Roussel and Johann Gottlieb Fichte, Koser explores the "strategic appropriation of gender myths as a form of contestation" (11). In particular she outlines the difference made in these writings ... Read More

  • The Making of a Terrorist: On Classic German Rogues by Jeffrey Champlin

    • Abstract: Jeffrey Champlin's intriguing new book, The Making of a Terrorist: On German Classic Rogues, represents a novel close reading of canonical works from late eighteenth- and early nineteenth-century German literature with the aim of explicating the appearance of excessive violence and its rhetorical and representational implications. Champlin identifies Goethe's Götz von Berlichingen, Schiller's Die Räuber, and Kleist's Michael Kohlhaas as texts that push understandings of terrorism and the political use of force to the limit by including passages that make the audience want to turn away. By dwelling on such acts and their ramifications, Champlin argues, these literary works confront their readers with the exercise of ... Read More

Their work is presented in this volume, under the editorship of Christine Lehleiter, who has produced a cohesive, unified, and timely collection of diverse essays.

His approach begins with grammatical-rhetorical aspects of the text, then examines its historical-lexigraphical underpinnings before tracing the text's development in the context of Goethe's works and finally considers ...

  • Recoding World Literature: Libraries, Print Culture, and Germany's Pact
           with Books by B. Venkat Mani (review)
    • Abstract: "World literature"—a concept once reviled because of its canonical implications—has made an unexpected comeback, in part because of an (equally unpredictable) alliance with postcolonial theory. Venkat Mani's latest book is one of a series of attempts to explore the usefulness of the concept in a postcolonial context. Within this debate Venkat Mani positions himself by arguing for a material history of "world literature," less however by tracing the (material) distribution of individual texts—although there are a few examples of that as well—, but rather by focusing on the institutions and technologies available to distribute books (or their contents) to readers. The study covers topics as diverse as libraries' ... Read More

  • Myth and the Human Sciences: Hans Blumenberg's Theory of Myth by Angus
           Nicholls (review)
    • Abstract: This book provides a deeply researched introduction to Hans Blumenberg's theory of myth, largely by highlighting the influence of well-known and forgotten thinkers on Blumenberg's thought. In its historiographical detail, it reads almost like a work of Blumenberg's own hand—a self-reflexivity the author acknowledges in the prologue's title, "A Story about the Telling of Stories" (1). Chapters 1–4 are the most historical-documentary. They are a wonderful resource for readers unfamiliar with Blumenberg since much of this material summarizes current Blumenberg scholarship. Experienced Blumenberg readers will also find new insights from these chapters. Chapter 4, for instance, discusses Blumenberg's admiration for ... Read More

B. auf den Gemälden alter Meister plötzlich voller Begeisterung zeitgenössische "Hipster" entdeckt oder in klassischen Portraits die Vorwegnahme von "Selfies" sieht, also Begrifflichkeiten und Gegenstände unfriedlich über ganze Zeitalter hinweg zu vereinen sucht.

  • Schopenhauer und Goethe: Biographische und philosophische Perspektiven
           eds. by Daniel Schubbe und Søren R. Fauth (review)
    • Abstract: Als ein "Gegengewicht im Zeitgeist" bezeichnete der junge Arthur Schopenhauer Goethes Rolle in einem Zeitalter, das auf der anderen Seite maßgeblich durch die Philosophie Immanuel Kants geprägt war. Goethe gehörte auch zu den wenigen Gesprächspartnern Schopenhauers, der sich lebenslang "schrecklich einsam gefühlt" habe. Zwischen November 1813 und Mai 1814 kam es zu persönlichen Begegnungen, wohl auch gemeinsamen Farbexperimenten, zwischen dem um 39 Jahre älteren Goethe und dem 25-jährigen Philosophen, der kurz zuvor in Jena mit einer Arbeit Ueber die vierfache Wurzel des Satzes vom zureichenden Grunde (1813) zum Doktor der Philosophie avanciert war.Goethe erhoffte sich, seinen Gesprächspartner für seine Theorie der ...

In her introduction and "Epilogue," Eldridge extends these explanations to the poetry of Paul Celan to demonstrate the continuation of Hölderlin's and Rilke's poetic ambitions after the Second World War.While unifying the senses and intellect and coping with death are important themes in Eldridge's exploration of the three poets, she does not examine the specific ...

Their primary concern is to deploy the concepts "archive" and "archiving" as interpretive tools for texts produced in the context of the nineteenth-century media revolution as well as its concomitant expansion of information and knowledge networks. Drawing on classical works theorizing the archive (Michel Foucault and Jacques Derrida), as well as established and emerging scholarship in media theory and history, the volume frames texts as depositories of information, on the one hand. On the other, the volume seeks to outline how texts themselves perform archiving of information ... Read More

    • Abstract: Among the many contributions of Immanuel Kant's Critique of Judgment (1790) was to question the dogmatic belief in providence: Kant argued that the human mind represents both organic nature and human history as if (als ob) both were teleological, although we can never verify this claim. Despite the fact that Kant limited teleology to regulative use, Karl Löwith claimed in his influential study Meaning in History (1949) that the nineteenth-century philosophy of history is nothing but secularized eschatology. Although Löwith's argument is a simplification, his criticism of master narratives had enormous influence on the development of postmodernism. Since Hayden White's Metahistory (1973), historians have debated to ... Read More

    • Abstract: In this ambitious new monograph, Dorothea von Mücke argues that Enlightenment ideas about authorship and the public sphere were profoundly shaped by both religious thought and the natural sciences. Her volume thus seeks to trace their evolution within a broader network of intellectual and cultural influences. "The discourse of philosophy alone," she argues, "does not suffice to understand the trajectory of these concepts." Von Mücke is interested in describing the kind of "cultural work" through which an autonomous domain of aesthetic perception and creativity was developed and populated by its own newly stylized audiences, critics, and practitioners (123–24)—a domain that, in turn, shaped the Enlightenment more ...

  • Transculturality and German Discourse in the Age of European Colonialism

    • Abstract: Zhang's monograph innovatively engages a topic that has long been subject of scholarly debate. Intervening in a line of scholarship that stretches from the work of Edward Said and Mary Louise Pratt to Susanne Zantop, Russell Berman, and Sankar Muthu, among many others, Zhang sensitively rereads seminal texts, asserting that non-European societies play a vital, constitutive role in German culture around 1800. She thereby seeks to move beyond the impasse of binary constructions common in this scholarship such as Enlightenment and empire or self and other, instead attending to non-European agency and "reading from the other side, from outside Europe." In the book's lucid introduction, Zhang brings our attention to ... Read More
