Erzählte Bewegung

Narrationsstrategien und Funktionsweisen lateinischer Pilgertexte (4.-15. Jahrhundert)

Serie:

Susanna Fischer

In Erzählte Bewegung. Narrationsstrategien und Funktionsweisen lateinischer Pilgertexte (4.-15. Jahrhundert), Susanna Fischer analyzes the function and structure of the genre of pilgrimage narratives from a literary point of view.
The first part of the book is devoted to theoretical reflections and a systematic analysis of characteristic elements of pilgrimage narratives. Interpreting the texts from a narrative perspective, she focuses not only on formal characteristics but also on narrative structures and thus takes a closer look at the poetics of pilgrimage narratives. Through the detailed analysis of fourteen Latin texts about pilgrimage to the Holy Land from the 4th to the 15th century, she illustrates the development of a literary tradition with specific structural, stylistic and narrative characteristics.

Meike Rühl

Die Monographie Ciceros Korrespondenz als Medium literarischen und gesellschaftlichen Handelns von Meike Rühl analysiert erstmals an den Briefen Ciceros die kommunikativen Praktiken und Besonderheiten einer Konversation, die nicht nur schriftlich erfolgt, sondern auch räumliche und soziale Distanz zwischen den Gesprächspartnern kompensiert. Besondere Aufmerksamkeit gilt in diesem Zusammenhang der vielfältigen Semantisierung von Raum in den Briefen, durch die sich sowohl der Absender wie auch die Adressaten innerhalb der zentralen politischen und literarischen Diskurse der späten Republik verorten lassen.

In Ciceros Korrespondenz als Medium literarischen und gesellschaftlichen Handelns Meike Rühl sheds new light on the ‘epistolarity’ of Cicero’s letters. Her main focus is on the specificities of a written conversation between two spatially separated individuals. Rühl analyses the communicative strategies adopted by Cicero to compensate the multifaceted (spatial and social) distance between the author and the addressee. In a further step, the study takes a closer look at the space created within the letters and examines the political and literary standpoints of the correspondents in the cultural context of the late Roman republic.

Gewalt und Unmaking in Lucans Bellum Civile

Textanalysen aus narratologischer, wirkungsästhetischer und gewaltsoziologischer Perspektive

Serie:

Hans-Peter Nill

In Gewalt und Unmaking in Lucans Bellum Civile entwickelt Hans-Peter Nill einen theoretischen Zugang zu zentralen Gewaltdarstellungen in Lucans Bürgerkriegsepos. Hierfür verknüpft er narratologische, wirkungsästhetische und soziologische Theorien und Methoden. Im Zentrum der Analysen stehen die Formen und Modalitäten der narrativ repräsentierten Gewalt. Ziel ist, ‚Lucanische Gewalt‘ als vielschichtiges, offenes Gebilde herauszustellen und sich von einer Reduzierung auf vermeintlich ‚typische‘ Partien zu distanzieren. Die Studie unternimmt den Versuch aufzuzeigen, dass über den Hebel der Gewalt erzählte Welt ( fabula) und narrative Repräsentation ( story) in eine dynamische Wechselwirkung treten, und so illusionsdurchbrechende Wirkung erzeugt wird. Insgesamt wird Unmaking an Aspekten wie Ästhetik und Zerstückelung, Verdichtung, Tension, Suspense und Exzess exemplarisch aufgezeigt.

In Gewalt und Unmaking in Lucans Bellum Civile Hans-Peter Nill offers a theoretical approach to essential narrative representations of violence in Lucan’s civil war epic, combining theories and methods of narratology, reception aesthetics, and sociology. The focus of the analyses lies on the configurations and modes of violence as represented in the text. The objective is to present ‘Lucanesque violence’ as a multifaceted, open structure, instead of reducing it to allegedly ‘typical’ scenes. The study aims to demonstrate that the narrated world ( fabula) and its narrative representation ( story) become dynamically intertwined by means of violence, which has a disturbing effect on narrative immersion. Altogether, Unmaking is exemplified by aspects such as aesthetics and mutilation, densification, tension, suspense,and excess.

Platonici minores

1. Jh.v.Chr. – 2. Jh.n.Chr. Prosopographie. Fragmente und Testimonien mit deutscher Übersetzung

Serie:

Marie-Luise Lakmann

In Platonici minores Marie-Luise Lakmann offers a collection of all philosophers considered to be “Middle Platonists” (1st century BC to AD 2nd century). The collection includes 85 “minor” Platonists, arranged in alphabetical order, little known figures seldom discussed in modern research. For each philosopher all known facts about life and teaching are presented with a bibliography. This is followed by a collection of fragments and testimonia relating to the Platonist. Each original text is accompanied by a German translation. An appendix includes a brief presentation of all “major” Platonists of this period.

The volume provides a complete conspectus of an important period in the history of philosophy, bringing together many scattered materials and throwing new light on what is already known of the Middle Platonism.

Thomas Haye

In his monograph Verlorenes Mittelalter, Thomas Haye discusses the question of why the greater part of the Latin texts which were produced over the course of the Middle Ages has not been preserved. Contemporary sources attest to the existence of thousands of texts which have not come down to the modern era. As Haye demonstrates, these losses are not primarily due to random happenstance, but are often rather the results of certain aspects of contemporary mentality, sociohistorical circumstances, preferences regarding literary genres and other specific cultural factors.
Modern literary histories largely disregard the lost texts. The present book argues for the development of a new narrative which duly takes into account the lost texts as well as those that still exist.

Die Stiftung von Autorschaft in der neulateinischen Literatur (ca. 1350-ca. 1650)

Zur autorisierenden und wissensvermittelnden Funktion von Widmungen, Vorworttexten, Autorporträts und Dedikationsbildern

Serie:

Karl A. E. Enenkel

This book throws new light on the question of authorship in the Latin literature of the later medieval and in the early modern periods. It shows that authorship was not something to be automatically assumed in an empathic sense, but was chiefly to be found in the paratextual features of works and was imparted by them. This study examines the strategies and tools used by authors ca. 1350-1650, to assert their authorial aspirations. Enenkel demonstrates how they incorporated themselves into secular, ecclesiastical, spiritual and intellectual power structures. He shows that in doing so rituals linked to the ceremonial of ruling, played a fundamental role, for example, the ritual presentation of a book or the crowning of a poet. Furthermore Enenkel establishes a series of qualifications for entry to the Respublica litteraria, with which the authors of books announced their claims to authorship.

Pindars sechste olympische Siegesode

Text, Einleitung und Kommentar

Serie:

Zsolt Adorjani

Pindar’s Sixth Olympian Ode is considered one of the poet’s most brilliant victory odes. This is the first full-scale commentary on it. Adorjáni presents Greek text with critical apparatus, translation and metrical analysis. Three introductory chapters treat matters of history (background, date, performance) and literary criticism. Then follows a verse-by-verse commentary rooted in the tradition of philological exegesis, concentrating on grammatical, stylistic and interpretive features. Until now the Sixth Olympian has been praised chiefly for its magnificent and lucid presentation of the myth of Iamos, a seer of Arcadian origin and ancestor of the prophetic clan of the Iamidae. This commentary illuminates both the overwhelming depth of thought and the cunningly wrought structure of this masterpiece, contributing to a better understanding of Pindar’s verbal artistry.

Pindars sechste olympische Ode ist einer der glänzendsten Siegesgesänge des Dichters. Hier wird der erste umfassende philologische Kommentar zum Gedicht vorgelegt. Adorjáni bietet einen griechischen Text mit kritischem Apparat, Übersetzung, metrischer Analyse und drei Einleitungskapiteln, die in die Probleme der Geschichtlichkeit (Hintergrund, Entstehungszeit, Aufführung) und der literarischen Interpretation hineinführen. Auf diesen Teil folgt ein von Vers zu Vers fortschreitender Kommentar, der gemäß den alten Traditionen der Texterklärung auf grammatische, stilistische und interpretatorische Fragen eingeht. Bisher wurde Olympie 6 zumeist als großartige und suggestive Erzählung des Mythos des Sehers Iamos, des Vorfahren der olympischen Iamiden, gewürdigt. Diesem Kommentar ist daran gelegen, die intrikate Gedankentiefe und vollkommenste Formkunst dieses Meisterwerks vor Augen zu führen.

Andreas Heil

In four separate studies, Andreas Heil shows that Seneca, in his tragedies Thyestes, Hercules furens, Troas ( Troades) and Medea, handles dramatic time less experimentally than has been assumed before. In all of these plays, taking into consideration the accompanying action on the stage and the characters' respective points of view, a gradually developing plot can be reconstructed. Thus, the survey considerably deepens our understanding of Seneca's dramatic technique.

In vier Einzelstudien zeigt Andreas Heil, daß Seneca mit der dramatischen Zeit in seinen Tragödien Thyestes, Hercules furens, Troas ( Troades) und Medea weniger experimentell verfährt, als bislang angenommen wurde. In allen untersuchten Stücken läßt sich – berücksichtigt man die begleitende Bühnenhandlung und die jeweilige Figurenperspektive – eine sukzessive sich entwickelnde Handlung rekonstruieren. Die Untersuchung leistet somit einen wichtigen Beitrag zum besseren Verständnis der dramatischen Technik Senecas.

Lateinische Dialoge 1200-1400

Literaturhistorische Studie und Repertorium

Serie:

Carmen Cardelle de Hartmann

The Middle Ages produced a very considerable corpus of latin dialogues but until now a study of this group of texts was missing. In this monograph, the complete dialogue production of the years 1200-1400 (119 works, many of them still unedited) is explored and presented in a detailed repertory which gives title(s), incipit and explicit as well as information on author, date, textual transmission, editions and a summary of the contents. Building on this material, the author can categorize the texts and describe four genres of dialogue (didactic, polemical, introspective and philosophical dialogues) as well as locate them in the literary traditions of Antiquity and the Middle Ages.

Lucans Poetische Technik

Studien zum historischen Epos

Serie:

Jan Radicke

The present volume on Lucan’s poetical technique focusses on the main artistic principles of the Pharsalia, studying both the underlying history of the Civil War and its poetical reworking by the author. A chapter on Lucan's historical source (Livy) is followed by a chapter on Lucan's poetical technique and the general outline of his work. The material basis for these chapters is provided by a detailed analysis of every single book of the Pharsalia, which takes the form of a "historical-poetical" commentary. The study closes with a chapter on the narrator and the author.
