Cambridge History of German Literature by Helen Watanabe-O'Kelly

Book Description

This book describes German literary history up to the unification of Germany in 1990. Contributors, all leading scholars in their field, take a fresh look at the main authors and movements, and also ask what Germans in a given period were actually reading and writing, what they would have seen at the local theatre or found in the local lending library; it includes, for example, discussions of literature in Latin as well as in German, eighteenth-century letters and popular novels, Nazi literature and radio plays, and modern Swiss and Austrian literature. A prominence is given to writing by women. The book is designed for general readers as well as students and scholars: titles and quotations are translated, and there is an extensive bibliography.

Beauty or Beast? by Helen Watanabe-O'Kelly Beauty or Beast?, Hardback (June 2010)

A regiment of women warriors strides across the battlefield of German culture - on the stage, in the opera house, on the page, in paintings and prints. This book examines representations of the transgressive figure of the woman warrior from Cranach's painting of Judith, to Schiller's Joan of Arc, Wagner's Brunnhilde, and Fritz Lang's Brunhild.

This work is a cultural history of Baroque Dresden, the capital of Saxony and the most important Protestant territory in the Empire from the mid-16th to the early 18th century.
