Metaphysician as Dramatist

W. B. Yeats spent a great deal of his life immersing himself in magical, mystical, and philosophic studies in order, as he claimed, to devise a personal system of thought “that would leave [his] ... imagination free to create as it chose and yet make all that it created, or could create, part of the one history, and that the soul's.” He succeeded in developing a cohesive metaphysics, and one which is surprisingly original. While he set it down in a series of philosophical treatises culminating in A Vision, it is most clearly elaborated in his plays, which breathe life and meaning into the rather obscure statements of the treatises. In this book, the author traces “the history of the soul” as it is developed in Yeats's plays. She elucidates the underlying system of thought in the drama and establishes its importance to the aim and execution of the plays by drawing attention to a few of the central themes, metaphors, and symbols through which it is developed. The manuscript and the earliest published versions of the plays are indispensable to this study as they retain much of the abstract thought which Yeats eliminated from the later versions. Martin traces the development of the metaphors and images which gradually replaced Yeats's abstractions. In the process, she is able to uncover new meaning in the plays, as many subtle and obscure passages become clearly understandable.

Stefan George: Werk und Wirkung seit dem >Siebenten Ring

The significance of Stefan George (1868-1933) in the history of modern German poetry is not in doubt. So far, however, research on his work has concentrated on the earlier half of his production, up to and including »Der Siebente Ring«, to the relative neglect of the poetry that makes up the later stages of his oeuvre. This later work is notable for the challenging way it addresses topics such as sexuality, religion, poetology, and politics. This volume assembles the papers delivered at the Stefan George colloquium in Bingen am Rhein in December 1998.

Dieses eBook: "Gesammelte Gedichte: 137 Titel in einem Band (Vollständige deutsche Ausgabe)" ist mit einem detaillierten und dynamischen Inhaltsverzeichnis versehen und wurde sorgfältig korrekturgelesen. Victor Hugo (1802-1885) war ein französischer Schriftsteller. Er verfasste Gedichte sowie Romane und Dramen und betätigte sich als literarischer, aber auch politischer Publizist. Mehrfach war er, als Angehöriger der Pairskammer, Abgeordneter oder Senator, auch direkt politisch aktiv. Während er im deutschen Sprachraum weniger bekannt ist als etwa Molière, Voltaire oder Balzac, gilt er vielen Franzosen als ihr größter Autor überhaupt. Sein Schaffen kann teils der Romantik, teils dem Realismus zugeordnet werden. Das literarische Werk Victor Hugos umfasst neben zahlreichen Gedichten acht Romane, neun Dramen und unzählige kleinere Schriften. Inhalt: An ein Weib Die Vendée Die Jungfrauen von Verdun Quiberon Ludwig der Siebenzehnte Die Wiederaufrichtung der Bildsäule Heinrichs IV. Der Tod des Herzogs von Berry Die Geburt des Herzogs von Bordeaux Die Taufe des Herzogs von Bordeaux An die Muse Ein Gesicht Buonaparte An meine Oden Balladen Eine Fee Die Sylphe Die Großmutter An Crilby, den Kobold von Argyle Der Riese Die Schlacht An Louis Boulanger Die Orientalen Feuer vom Himmel Kanaris Die Köpfe des Serail Begeisterung Navarin Kriegsruf des Mufti Des Pascha’s Schmerz Piratenlied Die Gefangne Mondschein Der Schleier Die Favoritsultane Der Derwisch Das feste Schloß Türkischer Marsch Die verlorne Schlacht Die Schlucht Das Kind Sarah, die Badende Erwartung Lazzara Wunsch Die eroberte Stadt Lebewohl der arabischen Wirthin Fluch Die zerhackte Schlange Nurmahal, die Rothe Die Djinn’s Sultan Achmet Maurische Romanze Granada Die Kornblumen Phantome An Louis Bonlanger Mazeppa Der zürnende Danubius Traum Ekstase Der Dichter an den Kalifen Bunaberdi Gebet Er November....
