Dante ist von unvergleichlicher Strahlkraft in der romanischen Welt. Die Darstellung beginnt mit einführenden Überlegungen zu „Dante architetto dell’eterno“ (Ossola) und „Dante mitologo del moderno“ (Cometa). Es folgen Beiträge zu neoplatonischen Aktualisierungen (Ott) und zu Ariost (Rivoletti). Mit Foscolos (Cristaldi), Mme de Staëls (Klinkert) und Béquers (Jacobi) produktiver Rezeption öffnet sich die Perspektive auf Dantes Präsenz im 19. Jahrhundert in Italien, Frankreich und Spanien. Ein Schwerpunkt der Untersuchung gilt modernen Antworten auf die „Commedia“. Dazu gehören in Italien Pirandello (Caputo), Montale (Güntert) und Del Giudice (Klettke). Avantgardistische Positionen finden sich bei Sanguineti (Hufnagel) und insbesondere im Umkreis der französischen Zeitschrift Tel Quel (Oster-Stierle). Nicht zuletzt erscheint Beatrice in neuem Licht (Kuon). Mit den Beiträgen über Füsslis Dante-Bilder (Riccardi) und Liszts Dante-Sonate (Berger) schließt der Band ab.

This volume explores concepts of fiction in late antique hagiographical narrative in different cultural and literary traditions. It includes Greek, Latin, Syriac, Armenian, Persian and Arabic material. Whereas scholarship in these texts has traditionally focussed on historical questions, this book approaches imaginative narrative as an inherent element of the genre of hagiography that deserves to be studied in its own right. The chapters explore narrative complexities related to fiction, such as invention, authentication, intertextuality, imagination and fictionality. Together, they represent an innovative exploration of how these concepts relate to hagiographical discourses of truth and the religious notion of belief, while paying due attention to the various factors and contexts that impact readers’ responses.
Literary, Cultural and Political Essays, 2009–2021
Crisis and Criticism is a series of interventions from 2009 to 2021 engaging with the literary, cultural and political responses to the capitalist crisis of 2007–8. Challenging the tendency to treat crisis as natural and beyond human control, this book interrogates our cultural understanding of crisis and suggests the necessity of ruthless criticism of the existing world. While responses to crisis have retreated from the critical, choosing to inhabit apocalyptic fantasies instead, only a critical understanding of the causes of crisis within capitalism itself can promise their eventual overcoming.
Dreamwork for Dramatic Writing: Dreamwrighting for Stage and Screen teaches you how to use your dreams, content, form, and structure, to write surprisingly unique new drama for film and stage. It is an exciting departure from traditional linear, dramatic technique, and addresses both playwriting and screenwriting, as the profession is increasingly populated by writers who work in both stage and screen. Developed through 25 years of teaching award-winning playwrights in the University of Missouri’s Writing for Performance Program, and based upon the phenomenological research of renowned performance theorist Bert O. States, this book offers a foundational, step-by-step organic guide to non-traditional, non-linear technique that will help writers beat clichéd, tired dramatic writing and provides stimulating new exercises to transform their work.
The Latin Poems of Manilius Cabacius Rallus of Sparta presents the poetic oeuvre of a forgotten poet of Renaissance Rome. A Greek by birth, Manilius Cabacius Rallus (c. 1447 – c. 1523) spent most of his life far from his motherland, unable to return. Through his poems, composed in a range of metres and genres, Rallus engaged with some major events and personalities of his time, including Angelo Poliziano, Ianus Lascaris, and Pope Leo X. His poems also reflect on timeless human experiences such as helplessness in the face of fortune and nostalgia for what is lost. Han Lamers edited the Latin text of Rallus’ poems (most of them printed for the last time in 1520) and added annotations and an English prose translation.
