Gender and Politics in Austrian Fiction by Ritchie Robertson

Book Description

This work draws attention to a small group of Austrian prose writers, sometimes neglected in the past because they do not fit the familiar Protestant canon of German literature. It offers insights into the work of two Austrian writers exiled in the US: "Charles Sealsfield" and Ferdinand Kurnberger. A reading of Kafka's fiction in the light of homosexual revelations from his diaries, and a re-interpretation of Joseph Roth's "Radetzkymarsch" suggest an understanding of masculinity, while a look at Ingeborg's Bachmann's novel "Malina" examines gender relations in this period.

Isaiah Berlin and the Enlightenment by Ritchie Robertson Isaiah Berlin and the Enlightenment, Hardback (October 2016)

Isaiah Berlin and the Enlightenment explores the development of Berlin's conception of the Enlightenment, noting its indebtedness to a specific German intellectual tradition. The book examines his comments on individual writers, arguing that some assigned to the Counter-Enlightenment have closer affinities to the Enlightenment than he recognized

Goethe: A Very Short Introduction by Ritchie Robertson Goethe: A Very Short Introduction, Paperback (January 2016)

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe lived to the age of 82 and wrote prodigiously in every genre: drama, poetry, fiction, autobiography, travel narrative, translation from French and Italian, and critical essays on art and literature, besides copious letters and diaries. Ritchie Robertson draws out key themes of his work and explains its lasting importance.

Mock-epic Poetry from Pope to Heine by Ritchie Robertson Mock-epic Poetry from Pope to Heine, Hardback (November 2009)

A study of eighteenth- and early nineteeenth-century poetry in English, French and German, focusing on the mock epic (from Pope's Dunciad to Byron's Don Juan) as a critique of serious epic poetry and also as a literary means of exploring a wide range of sexual and religious issues in a humorous style.

Castle by Ritchie Robertson Castle, Paperback (July 2009)

Kafka's story about a man seeking acceptance and access to the mysterious castle is among the central works of modern literature. This translation follows the German critical text and includes a detailed introduction and notes to this famously enigmatic novel.
