German song in the nineteenth century offers some of the greatest pleasures available to the singer, pianist, and listener. The great German poets - Goethe, Schiller, Ruckert, Eichendorff, Heine, Morike, Hesse, and many lesser figures - inspired such perennial masterpieces as Schubert's songcycles Die Schone Mullerin and Winterreise, Schumann's Dichterliebe, and Mahler's Die Kindertotenlieder. This book provides the German texts of the most frequently studied and performed songs, and gives literal, word-for-word translations under each line, plus clear English prose versions of eachpoem. Neither is a singing version, but each contributes to the understanding and appreciation of the song. The composers represented are Beethoven, Schubert, Schumann, Wagner, Brahms, Wolf, Mahler, and Richard Strauss. This new edition includes numerous corrections and improvemenbts to thetranslations.

Friedrich Maximilian Klinger's AGeschichte eines Teutschen der neusten ZeitA (The Tale of a German Contemporary) appeared in 1789 as the sixth volume of a planned cycle of 10 philosophical novels. It is an important testimony of the author's engagement with, and understanding of, the works of Jean-Jacques Rousseau and indicates his stance vis-A -vis the French Revolution. This reprint of the text is based on the first edition and is preceded by a detailed introduction discussing the genesis of the novel. A variant apparatus informs the reader of all changes to be found in later versions of the text authorised by Klinger.
