Strange Bedfellows And Their Grandchildren: German Literature As Evidence And Confession Of Reunification, Cory H. Rosenberg 2011 Gettysburg College

Strange Bedfellows And Their Grandchildren: German Literature As Evidence And Confession Of Reunification, Cory H. Rosenberg

Student Publications

From Hegel to Merkel, from Bismarck to BMW, German culture has defined and re-defined itself through a cycle of reaction; thesis, antithesis, synthesis. Modern Germany has certainly not escaped this pattern, existing in a very deep and surprisingly present way in reaction to the collapse of the East German state and the formation of a unified Germany. This paper examines the ways in which contemporary German authors evidence this reaction in their work. As a nation at the heart of the East/West divide throughout the Cold War, Germany provides an ideal lens through which to view the shifting cultural ...


Konflikt Und Überzeugung, Menschlichkeit Und Tod: Die Charakterisierung Von Friedrich Schiller, David T. Ey 2011 Gettysburg College

Konflikt Und Überzeugung, Menschlichkeit Und Tod: Die Charakterisierung Von Friedrich Schiller, David T. Ey

Ӓҫcéñt

Friedrich Schillers Charaktere sind dynamisch und statisch. Ihre Ziele ändern sich nicht durch das Schauspiel, aber die Ziele verursachen innere Konflikte, die mit einem äußeren Konflikt beschäftigten. Die Charaktere lösen die Konflikte durch den Verzicht eines Ziels auf. Schillers historische Tragödien handeln von absoluter Auswahl. Sie sind am Anfang fehler- und lückenhaft, aber sie ändern sich durch das Stück und werden absolut. Dann werden sie bestimmt, ein Ziel zu erreichen, aber sie verlieren ihre Menschlichkeit. Der innere Konflikt wird aufgelöst, und bald ist der äußere Konflikt aufgelöst. Am Ende sind die Charaktere und die Konflikte komplett und eindimensional. [excerpt]


Writings Of Esther Discherheit „Das Leben In Zwischen“, Jan Cerny 2011 Gettysburg College

Writings Of Esther Discherheit „Das Leben In Zwischen“, Jan Cerny

Ӓҫcéñt

Juden behaupten, dass sie nicht jüdisch genug ist. Deutsche sagen, dass sie nicht deutsch genug ist. Gesteckt zwischen zwei Welten und zwei Kulturen, ist Esther Discherheit eine von der wichtigsten Schriftstellerinnen im heutigen Deutschland. Als die weltbekannte Stimme einer gegenwärtigen jüdisch-deutscher Generation, kämpft sie stark gegen Kategorisierung, Stereotypen und Heuchelei. In ihren Werken finden wir alle Probleme vom heutigen Deutschland und jungen deutschen Juden. In dieser Arbeit versuche ich die Texte von Esther Discherheit zu analysieren und die „inneren“ und „äußerlichen“ Schwierigkeiten von ihrer Mix-Identität zu untersuchen. Ich werde mich hauptsächlich auf zwei von ihren Werken konzentrieren – den Essay Keine ...

"Heimatlos In Dieser Welt": The Isolated Modern Woman In Edith Södergran’S Vaxdukshäft Poetry, Kajsa M. Spjut 2010 Brigham Young University - Provo

"Heimatlos In Dieser Welt": The Isolated Modern Woman In Edith Södergran’S Vaxdukshäft Poetry, Kajsa M. Spjut

Theses and Dissertations

In this thesis, I explore how, although Edith Södergran’s Vaxdukshäf poems seem to support new female roles in early 20th century European society, they also reflect on the danger in changing from traditional to modern roles. As the poems illustrate, this change can create an isolated woman, who becomes trapped in her new independence and is unable to alter herself to connect with others. In order to understand what is meant by traditional and modern female roles, I present a historical background that contrasts the woman of pre-20th-Century Europe with the new woman that emerged around the Turn of ...
