  • Hypochondria, Sentimental Friendship, and Same-Sex Desire in Anton Reiser

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Karl Philipp Moritz's (1756–93) novel Anton Reiser (1785–90) innovatively connects eighteenth-century conceptions of the disease hypochondria with sentimental male friendship grounded in homoeroticism. Hypochondria was a diagnosis that loomed large in the cultural imagination of the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, playing a significant role in the literary and medical writings of this period. Hypochondria was understood as a physical ailment with mental and emotional components, and it was used by medical writers as a means of promoting healthy behaviors and disparaging behaviors believed to be unhealthy. Additionally, hypochondria fulfilled a metaphorical function, as it allowed not only medical writers ... Read More

  • The Witch in His Head: Rupturing the Patriarchal Discourse in
           Eichendorff's Ballad "Waldgespräch"

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Joseph von Eichendorff's first novel Ahnung und Gegenwart ("Premonition and Present Times," 1815) has been read as the depiction of its two protagonists' sometimes conjoined, sometimes separate journeys to "genuine" Romanticism, with Leontin embracing natural poetry and Friedrich eventually entering a Catholic monastery.1 On the way, Leontin finds salvation in Julie, his selfless muse from the countryside, while Friedrich encounters many obstacles, most notably women by whom he is briefly fascinated, such as the seductive Romana or shallow Rosa, before he accepts religion as his redemption. Along with the other women portrayed in the novel, such as the sickly girl-in-disguise Erwine or the sensual Marie, the female ... Read More

           Urteilskraft to Algorithmic Pattern Recognition, Generation, and
           Exploration

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Though there have been numerous studies on Goethean morphology, most employ a history of philosophy approach rather than address the topic at the conceptual level—and thus tend to overlook the remarkable contemporaneity of the methodological innovations advanced in the corpus of Goethe's scientific writings.1 Indeed, the manner in which Goethe formulates the main problem faced by naturalists—how best to uncover the invisible laws driving the morphogenesis of natural products—is strikingly close to how contemporary computational crafters and artists explore the virtual potentialities of the materials with which they work. In his "Vorarbeiten zu einer Physiologie der Pflanzen" ("Excerpt from Studies for a Physiology ... Read More

  • The Worldliness of Weltliteratur: Goethe's "Handelsverkehr" between China
           and Weimar

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: This essay investigates the material conditions of Goethe's reception of Chinese literature in the 1820s in order to discuss a potential European bias within Goethe's thoughts on Weltliteratur (world literature). This question has been central to debates on world literature since its emergence as a fully fledged critical discourse in the 1940s. Erich Auerbach criticized Goethe's "altbürgerlich-ständisch" (solid bourgeois) prejudices in Mimesis as having held back a democratization of culture in the 1830s,1 something that he later saw as prefiguring a turn toward the type of nationalism that drove Auerbach himself into exile in Istanbul.2 Edward Said, on the other hand, defended Goethe on the grounds that his vision ...

  • Fleeting Hope in Foreboding Times: The 1932 Goethe Year in Argentina

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: This article on the 1932 Goethe Year in Argentina is a prequel to my essay on the nation's commemorations of the 1949 Goethe Year, which appeared in the 2021 Goethe Yearbook.1 The two pieces share a locale and have many common protagonists, thus, although the focus here is on the centenary of Goethe's death, I will occasionally refer to the events in 1949 to plot the trajectory of several fundamental themes across the intervening seventeen tumultuous years. The 1932 Goethe Year portrays how Argentines and German immigrants perceived and celebrated Goethe locally, offering contrasting perspectives from host and immigrant populations, who themselves were not monolithic entities. The tributes to Goethe inform an ... Read More

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Hölderlin 2020 inadvertently became Hölderlin 2021. In the wake of COVID-19, an entire year of exhibits, readings, concerts, lectures, and even a musical had to be postponed or moved to other, often virtual venues for the ambitious program, planned to celebrate the 250th birthday of the great German poet Friedrich Hölderlin. Some events were deferred to 2021.1 Celebrations began in Lauffen am Neckar with the opening of the "Hölderlin House" at Nordheimerstr. 5, which, since the 1970s, has been thought to be the residence of the family into which Hölderlin was born on March 20, 1770. There were also celebrations in Nürtingen, where Hölderlin moved with his mother after the death of his father, and where the poet ... Read More

      Abstract: Mit dem Format "Literaturausstellung" scheint eine Feststellung unausweichlich verknüpft: Literatur könne man nicht ausstellen. Denn literarische Texte, so die Begründung, seien nicht für das Zeigen gemacht—anders etwa als Werke der bildenden Kunst. Sie entzögen sich dem Ausstellen durch ihren Umfang, ihre Gebundenheit an das Medium Buch und ihre sprachliche Disposition, die der Erfindung und Imagination zum Beispiel einer Geschichte diene. Ihr Ziel sei eine bestimmte literarische Erfahrung: das identifikatorische, immersive Lesen von der ersten bis zur letzten Seite, der flow, das deep reading. Diese Begründung geht vom Roman als literarische Leitgattung aus, ignoriert aber viele andere Erscheinungsformen von ... Read More

  • "Die Saitenspiele ergossen sich über mein Innres": Hölderlin's
           Auditory Atmospheres

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In Friedrich Hölderlin's writings,1 music—exemplified by terms like "Saitenspiel," "Gesang," harmony, dissonance, etc.—plays a major role.2 Especially the "Saitenspiel," as Dieter Burdorf has argued, stands metonymically for the very medium and material of poetry itself, while the "Gesang" represents the idea that the poet creates his works with the entirety of his bodily self.3 Many of Hölderlin's hymns, odes, and especially his novel Hyperion—in Walter Silz's words, "a unique creation that stands in the broad border zone between poetry and music"4—evoke a special kind of auditory atmosphere, a term that I adapt in part from Gernot Böhme's concept of "acoustic atmosphere." In opposition to the post-Hegelian ... Read More

      Abstract: Man kann auch in die Höhe fallen, so wie in die Tiefe. (One can also fall to the heights, just as into the depths.)The experience of reading Hölderlin is baffling and breathtaking, an encounter with an edge of language that seems to exceed the human without collapsing into the divine. Hölderlin's text challenges the act of reading in a way quite different from the difficulties that other writers present their readers. Particularly in what are known as his late writings, meaning the hymns in free rhythm, translations, and poetological speculations that precede his ultimate schizophrenic collapse in 1806, the challenge is not simply the obscurity of Hölderlin's diction and thought, a difficulty that might be common ...

  • Hölderlin's Hyperion as Eros: Between Symposiast and Hermit

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Although the philosophical and political underpinnings of Hölderlin's novel, Hyperion, have been a focus of much scholarly investigation, the novel's exploration of friendship and erotic attachments has received relatively less attention. Its reception as a Bildungsroman has led critics to focus more closely on the protagonist's development as an individual than on his relationships with others.1 Some critics, like Sylvain Guarda, have noted Hyperion's attraction to both men and women and discussed the broader implications of this dual attraction for the novel's exploration of political and developmental issues.2 Others, such as Pascal Firges and Mark Roche, draw attention to the echoes of Plato in Hyperion while ...

      Abstract: German literary culture has at least two not unappealing idiosyncrasies. First, few cultures, if any, are as energetic as Germany's in publishing critical editions. In American bookstores, one doesn't see anything like the range of collected works one finds in Germany. There is even a joke related to the phenomenon: "Ein Geschäftsmann geht in die Buchhandlung," and says, "Drei Meter Goethe, bitte."—to which the bookseller replies: "Hmmm, was für eine Ausgabe'!" (A German businessman walks into a bookstore and says, "Three meters of Goethe, please" to which the bookseller replies: "Hmmm, which edition'!")1To invest in critical editions is not to be free of controversy, as the critical editions of Hölderlin make ...

  • Introduction to Special Section "Movement": Movement and the Modern

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The essays in this section explore the dialectic of movement and stasis that plays out in the literature and thought of the Goethezeit. These contributions stem from a series of panels on the topic organized by the MLA Forum on Late 18th- and Early 19th-Century German Literature for the 2021 MLA convention. They open up a dialogue about how movement functions to reflect and shape emerging social, aesthetic, affective, temporal, and political concepts in the period.Movement and stillness stand at the center of Lessing's argument about the superior flexibility of poetry over the plastic arts in his Laocoon (1766); his interpretation of the Laocoon statue rests upon the "pregnant moment" in which movement is frozen.1 ...

      Abstract: Hatte Johann Heinrich Zedlers Universal-Lexicon zu Beginn der 1740er Jahre die Vokabel "rühren" noch ausschließlich im Sinne einer äußerlich-physischen Bewegung gekannt,1 so steigt Rührung, verstanden als innere Gemütsbewegung, im Zuge einer umfassenden Entrhetorisierungsbewegung2 in der zweiten Epochenhälfte bald zu einer ästhetischen und auch moralischen Zentralkategorie auf, die zum Angelpunkt einer neuen, in paradoxer Weise antirhetorischen Rhetorik avanciert. Als solche ist Rührung gerade keine bloße Verdeutschung des lateinisch-rhetorischen movere bzw. commovere, sondern ganz im Gegenteil gilt die "Rührungsfähigkeit"3 als Ausweis unverstellt-aufrichtiger, tugendhafter, in der Sprache der Zeit: ...

  • Discipline and Theatricality: Tableaux Vivants and the Vicissitudes of
           Movement in Goethe's Die Wahlverwandtschaften

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In Goethe's Die Wahlverwandtschaften (Elective Affinities), unforeseen and unpropitious movements have the tendency to occasion disorientation, wonder, or even tragedy. Charlotte's attempts to reposition the gravestones in the churchyard are met with opposition by the family members of the deceased, who assert that they would lose the ties to their ancestors if the burial plots were not marked properly. Movement can appear miraculous, as when Ottilie's mere presence sets suspended metals into motion as if acted upon by some arcane force. A single, unexpected movement can also result in near disaster, as seen in the collapse of the bridge at Ottilie's birthday party that causes a young boy to almost drown.The threat ... Read More

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Throughout Goethe's Wilhelm Meisters Lehrjahre (Wilhelm Meister's Apprenticeship) and Wilhelm Meisters Wanderjahre (Wilhelm Meister's Journeyman Years) characters are moving toward one another, dancing, and performing on stage. These movements are essential because they draw people together and facilitate their discovery of new people, their own inner values, and their connections to one another. Wilhelm's travels and his stage performances move him toward others, which ultimately leads to the discovery of his own feelings and desires as well as their feelings. Movement in all forms is essential to Wilhelm's understanding of himself. In addition, his movement from place to place and toward others highlights how he ... Read More

           West-östlicher Divan

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The title of Goethe's cycle, West-östlicher Divan (West-Eastern Divan), suggests movement, implying that the collection initiates an exchange of ideas and literary practices between geographically and linguistically distant cultures. As the stated author of the cycle, Goethe occupies an ambiguous position between East and West, Persian and German identities, permitting a novel concept of authorship to emerge, one formulated not as a single fixed, unified and static source but rather as multivocal dialogue encompassing more than one linguistic and cultural perspective. This concept of mobile authorship promotes an ideal; it envisions a poetic exchange among equals. However, introducing movement into the concept of ... Read More

      Abstract: When one discovers a new translation of Goethe's Faust, especially when researching the large number of Faust texts available for course adoption, one may indeed need to assess many points of comparison with the other available translations. While I was still teaching, I did this on several occasions, especially for general education classes for undergraduates (in which the students seem to desire a "good read," which I have usually taken to mean "an understandable text"), as well as for a liberal studies course in which graduate students, eager to engage with this profound work, desire a certain thematic depth that the translation does not hamper. Eugene Stelzig's new translation of Faust I can be recommended on ... Read More

      Abstract: Howard Gaskill's translation of Hölderlin's epistolary novel Hyperion (1797/99) represents the culmination of years of extensive scholarship on the author, this work, and issues surrounding its translation. While there are other recent translations for the interested reader to choose from, this edition has the distinct advantage of being available online and free of charge through the publisher's website. Of further benefit for the student and scholar is the extensive apparatus accompanying the translation. A map of Greece visualizes the myriad place names in the text (though the protagonist's journey between these is not marked); a comprehensive index of proper names provides necessary background information on ...

  • Selected Works by J. M. R. Lenz: Plays, Stories, Essays, and Poems by J.
           M. R. Lenz (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In Dichtung und Wahrheit (Poetry and Truth), Goethe famously describes the dramatist, essayist, and poet Jakob Michael Reinhold Lenz as a "passing meteor" that briefly traversed across the horizon of German literature before disappearing altogether. Fortunately, Goethe's dismissive statement did not prove accurate; today, Lenz's literary and theoretical works are recognized as some of the most challenging, socially critical, and aesthetically radical texts of the Sturm und Drang era. However, in the English-speaking world, Lenz has had a good deal less exposure than Goethe, Schiller, or Kleist. In fact, one might speculate that many North American university students are less likely to have read Lenz's own works ... Read More

      Abstract: The Journal von Tiefurt was very much a courtly production, the work of Anna Amalia and her lady-in-waiting Louise von Göchhausen, along with the two nobles Friedrich Hildebrand von Einsiedel and Karl Siegmund von Seckendorff. The ambitious initial advertisement for the journal concerned the contributors and their aims: "Es ist eine Gesellschaft von Gelehrten, Künstlern, Poeten und Staatsleuten, beyderley Geschlechtes, zusammengetreten, und hat sich vorgenommen alles was Politick, Witz, Talente und Verstand, in unsern dermalen so merkwürdigen Zeiten, hervorbringen, in einer periodischen Schrift den Augen eines sich selbst gewählten Publikums vorzulegen."

      Abstract: It is an honor and a pleasure to have been asked to review this book for the Goethe Yearbook. Hellmut Ammerlahn and I have been colleagues at the University of Washington since 1988, but of course I knew his work long before that. Despite apparently quite different starting points, our mutual respect and admiration have only increased during that period. This volume contains selected essays written since the early 1990s; since the last one was written for a volume dedicated to me, I will not comment on it here.Hellmut Ammerlahn's reputation as a major Goethe scholar on two continents was established by his first two published essays, now classics, on Wilhelm Meisters Lehrjahre in Deutsche Vierteljahresschrift in ...

      Abstract: Frederick Amrine's insightful study takes as its point of departure two interpretive questions that have been central to the reception of Wilhelm Meisters Lehrjahre and Wilhelm Meisters Wanderjahre since their first publication. With respect to the Lehrjahre, how do the farcical intrigues and theatrical musings of a wandering troupe of actors form a single narrative with the mystical diary of an unknown female narrator and a philosophically minded secret society with an eye to the good of bourgeois marriage' And how do any of these elements relate to the novel's ostensible sequel, with its wandering renunciants, fragmentary structure, and apparently unrelated novellas' Building on a conceptual framework developed ...

      Abstract: The Perennial Alternative is the companion to Frederick Amrine's two-volume Goethe in the History of Science (Peter Lang, 1996) which catalogs the scientific work of Goethe and those he influenced up to 1990. While the latter is an extensive, well-organized bibliography with multiple indices based on author, research subject, and other helpful markers; the current volume contains previously published and original essays that make up what the author calls an "unsystematic history" of Goethe and the reception of his work. Although its unsystematic nature hinders the reader from understanding the larger development and trajectory of Goethe's influence, textual unity comes with Amrine's weaving of philosophical points ...

      Abstract: This comprehensive compilation of research on Bettina von Arnim is an essential acquisition for every university library and required reading for every scholar of Bettina von Arnim. Comprising 740 pages, this is by far the longest single volume of research on the influential German Romantic writer, most well-known for her epistolary work Goethe's Briefwechsel mit einem Kinde (Goethe's Correspondence with a Child). This compendium considers not only von Arnim's literary work and its reception, but also her life in its cultural and political context, her network of relationships with contemporary intellectuals and artists, her political activism and writings, as well as her contributions as an artist and musician. ...

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Market Strategies is part of a slew of recent publications that consider literary texts as nodal points in an intricate system of authors, publishers, translators, printers, and reviewers. These books (Deiulio/Lyon 2019, Krimmer/Nosset 2020, and others) argue that scholars benefit from focusing on collaboration to understand the literary output in the long nineteenth century. This book, too, argues that "production, promotion, and reception of texts was a collaborative enterprise driven by the strategic interests of a diverse set of actors and institutions." The volume, based on a series of panels at the 2016 German Studies Association, takes its theoretical direction from Robert Darnton's and Pierre Bourdieu's ... Read More

           (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Many readers may be familiar with the German author, music critic, composer, jurist, and painter E. T. A. Hoffmann, his two novels, or some of his four dozen short stories, in which the supernatural and the dark side of human existence loom just below the surface. Well-known is Hoffmann's eccentric alter ego Johannes Kreisler, as is his works' inspiration for later authors and composers. A wide range of approaches have been employed over the years to explicate Hoffmann's writings, from Freud's notion of the "uncanny" to interpretations of Hoffmann as a postmodernist avant la lettre. Yet avenues to further elucidate Hoffmann's enigmatic and multifaceted works are by no means exhausted, as this essay collection ... Read More

      Abstract: A critical study of this kind—reading modern German philosophy and literary masterpieces in the context of twentieth-century biopolitics and other scientific-reductive definitions of "life"—has been long overdue in German studies, yet Gailus's marvelous book was worth the wait! In lucid prose and pointed arguments, Gailus introduces his readers to the philosophical history of vital materialism (chapters on Kant, Nietzsche, Wittgenstein), he provides superb readings of canonical literary texts (chapters on Kleist, Goethe, Benn, Musil) that demonstrate the continued relevance of the German tradition in scientific debates, and he makes the case for literature and aesthetics as necessary antidotes to the increasingly ...

      Abstract: Jason Groves's new monograph is inspired by a sense common among climatologists and climate activists that the earth has become unstable. The environmentalist Bill McKibben has gone so far, Groves notes, as to advocate that we rename the planet. Calling it "Eaarth," McKibben suggests, altering it phonetically and lengthening the "a" into a cry, might be necessary to capture the full extent of its transformation.To understand what new ways of living and new forms of writing this global instability might inspire, Groves turns to the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries to explore an earlier era, during one of the great revolutions in understandings of geology, when the public first became aware of just how unstable ...

Allerdings richtet er seinen Blick nicht auf die Romantik und ihre Ästhetik des Anorganischen, sondern auf "Diskurse, Protagonisten und epistemische Gegenstände" bevor sich der Gegensatz zwischen organischen und anorganischen Formen fest etablierte. Damit beleuchtet er einen Zeitrahmen, der bisher wenig Aufmerksamkeit fand und doch im Laufe des neunzehnten Jahrhunderts folgenreiche Differenzen und Marginalisierungen nach sich zog. Denn mit der terminologischen Bestimmung und Abgrenzung des Organischen und des Anorganischen ... Read More

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Writing the Self, Creating Community, a collection of eleven essays, is an innovative exploration of the discourse of female authorship in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. In this era, women lacked formal educational opportunities and were frequently discouraged from viewing themselves as professional authors, often publishing anonymously or under a pseudonym. Despite these obstacles, however, we know from scholars such as Helen Fronius that changes in the book market allowed a sizable group of women to participate successfully in the literary marketplace around 1800. In their anthology, Elisabeth Krimmer and Lauren Nossett present a good deal of evidence to demonstrate that many women of the period did ... Read More

He spent many years in exile, fighting for the unification of Italy against Austrian imperialism, petty princes, and the Catholic church, which were keeping Italy fragmented. At the same time, Mazzini was fully committed to the idea of common European values and interests, and he interpreted the three authors in the ... Read More

  • Middling Romanticism: Reading in the Gaps, from Kant to Ashbery by Zachary

      Abstract: Since Zachary Sng's monograph takes the "middle" as its subject and the literature and thought of a German "golden age"—Romanticism—as its main case in point, it is tempting to judge the work according to the Horatian maxim of aurea mediocritas. And there is much for the likes of Horace or indeed Goldilocks to enjoy here: the spirit of deconstruction runs through the book, but is held in check and is admirably accessible; there are classical allusions, etymologies, and word plays, though these are always put to critical use. Sng himself begins with Aristotle, who extols the virtues of moderation—and yet repeatedly questions the manifold ways of expressing it. Thus for Sng, to adopt a middling position becomes first ...

  • Resounding the Sublime: Music in English and German Literature and
           Aesthetic Theory, 1670–1850 by Miranda Eva Stanyon (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The glorification of music as sublimely ineffable has often been viewed as a nineteenth-century phenomenon, linked to the rise of instrumental music as an autonomous art form (e.g., Chua, Absolute Music and the Construction of Meaning [1999] and Bonds, Absolute Music: The History of an Idea [2014]). Miranda Eva Stanyon's monograph Resounding the Sublime rethinks this narrative. Advancing her argument through close readings of British and German texts from 1670–1850, Stanyon persuasively demonstrates that the musical sublime has a much longer and broader reach than has generally been acknowledged. Music thus emerges as a shaping force that "helps establish and unsettle relationships between central components in ... Read More

      Abstract: Gabriela Stoicea's ambitious study of physicality and facial expression bridges the historical and formal gaps between Sophie von La Roche's relatively well-studied Geschichte des Fräuleins von Sternheim and Alfred Döblin's canonical Berlin Alexanderplatz, on the one hand, and, on the other, the now largely forgotten but once hugely popular Friedrich Spielhagen and his 1897 novel Zum Zeitvertreib. The book is divided into three major sections, one for each author, plus a brief introduction and a very brief conclusion. Stoicea's argument is that, starting in the eighteenth century, there is a move away from the visibility of bodies and faces and toward other forms of reading character, whether through abstract ...

  • Pretexts for Writing: German Romantic Prefaces, Literature, and Philosophy
           by Seán M. Williams (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Taking as its point of departure the striking formal innovation and self-reflexivity of German prefatory writing at the cusp of the nineteenth century, Williams's study makes a compelling case for both the distinctiveness of the preface in the Age of Romanticism and the continued influence of the rhetorical tradition in the era of its alleged end. To preface during this period, Williams shows, meant more than simply to justify a work's existence, to summarize its contents, or to flatter the sensibility of its readers, although it still may have continued to obey these conventions. Rather, as part of the emergent cultural ideal of textual autonomy around 1800, the preface becomes an end in itself: a site of complex ... Read More
