The Impossible Impossible: Kafka's "Beschreibung Eines Kampfes", Darin Trent Graber 2010 University of Colorado at Boulder

The Impossible Impossible: Kafka's "Beschreibung Eines Kampfes", Darin Trent Graber

Comparative Literature Graduate Theses & Dissertations

Franz Kafka’s “Beschreibung eines Kampfes” employs a uniquely troubling narrative structure in which the story’s narrator begins to relate the story of his run-in with an “acquaintance” but fails to maintain a stable, subjective standpoint from which he can narrate sensibly. Despite his attempt to utilize a secondary narrative that makes him both a narrator and a narrated character, this first-person narrator’s failed subject perspective gives way to a myriad of other characters’ and their own attempts to solidify their individual existence via secondary narratives. Put in context of other similar, yet distinct, narrative structures employed by ...


Poem (Film Review), Kathrin M. Bower 2010 University of Richmond

Poem (Film Review), Kathrin M. Bower

Languages, Literatures, and Cultures Faculty Publications

POEM is the feature-length debut for Ralf Schmerberg, a self-taught photographer and filmmaker known for his music videos of German bands Die Toten Hosen and Die Fantastischen Vier and his imaginative television commercials. Schmerberg and his collaborator, the writer Antonia Keinz, spent two years reading poetry to determine the final selection of 19 poems for the film project. The concept of creating a film devoted to visual interpretations of poetry was intriguing enough to attract big name actors, including Klaus Maria Brandauer, Meret Becker, Hannelore Elsner, Jürgen Vogel, and Hermann van Veen, as well as camera men who previously had ...


Review Of Goethe's Modernisms, William H. Carter 2010 Iowa State University

Review Of Goethe's Modernisms, William H. Carter

World Languages and Cultures Publications

Imagine for a moment that you are not a Goethe scholar, and consider these questions: Why read Goethe, or his contemporaries, for that matter? Is it worth the time and effort required? Are there not more relevant issues deserving of our attention? It is the year 2011 after all. What might we learn from this fellow Goethe that we don’t already know? With the ever-increasing pressure on educators in the liberal arts, in general, and Germanists, more specifically, to make a case for their continued existence, these are deadly serious questions. They require answers that are accessible to an ...

Foreign Languages And Sustainability: Addressing The Connections, Communities And Comparisons Standards In Higher Education, Eleanor Horst, Joshua Pearce 2009 Clarion University of Pennsylvania

Foreign Languages And Sustainability: Addressing The Connections, Communities And Comparisons Standards In Higher Education, Eleanor Horst, Joshua Pearce

Joshua M. Pearce

This article describes an interdisciplinary collaboration that combined the study of German language with instruction in environmental issues (sustainable development). The project, involving both an independent study and a classroom unit, allowed students to make connections between disciplines, establish contact with German-speaking communities outside the university, and make cultural and linguistic comparisons. By expanding the German-language content on the Web site Appropedia.org, which is devoted to global sustainable development, students took an active role in learning by creating content that can be read and used by the global community of German speakers. This project provided a model for successful ...

The Pride And Prejudice Of The Western World: The Iconicity Of The Great Books, Solibakke Ivan Karl 2009 Syracuse University

The Pride And Prejudice Of The Western World: The Iconicity Of The Great Books, Solibakke Ivan Karl

Karl Ivan Solibakke

This article examines controversies arising from the perception of the instruments of cultural memory and the logic of their transmissibility. On the one hand, we have a carefully selected, temporally and geographically orchestrated body of texts, the Great Books, which are an enduring testament to the authority of Western intellectual artifacts. On the other hand, Jacques Derrida’s Archive Fever locates a furtive transformation of collective memory in the informal practices exemplified by oral narrative and public discourse. Not only do both models rely on archives as a functional instrument of collective identity, but they also value them as institutions ...
