She has written many articles on German literature and court culture of the early modern period, on nineteenth-century fiction and on literary translation and is the co-editor, with Pierre Behar, of Spectaculum Europaeum.
She is currently working on a study of court culture in Dresden in the early modern period. What, for instance, does literature mean? Does it mean writing which claims to be high art or, at the other end of the spectrum, any connected text, whether written down or not?
The authors of this history have defined the term as they saw fit in different periods. Charms and spells are discussed in chapter i, for instance, polemical pamphlets in chapter 3, letters in chapter 4, sermons in chapter 5 and radio plays in chapter 9 - alongside what have been traditionally conceived of as literary forms, of course.
The adjective German when applied to literature is just as difficult to define. Does it mean literature in the German language?
In certain periods, therefore, we must discuss what Germans wrote rather than merely what they wrote in German. But how do we define the Germans? One cannot simply say that they are those people living within the boundaries of the German-speaking world, for the latter has always contained French, Italian, Danish, Dutch, Hungarian, Serb, Croat, Polish, Czech and Yiddish speakers living side by side with German speakers.
In earlier periods one has to operate with that political entity called the Holy Roman Empire while the late-twentieth-century specialist has to deal with the existence of two Germanies and ask herself whether Austrians and Swiss count as Germans for literary purposes and, if they do not, why not.
But these difficulties are as nothing beside those inherent in the term history. Some of my colleagues have already told me that it is impossible nowadays to write a history at all.
There are those who would go further and say that the writing of history is immoral, in that it entails the construction of an official narrative designed to bolster the standing of those in power and to silence, indeed to write out of existence, those of the wrong social class, religious and political beliefs or gender.
If, according to this view, any history is doomed before it even starts, how much more futile it is to name a book the history of German literature - with the little word o f implying a completeness which is certainly unachievable. In spite of all this, it seems to me that each generation has a duty to write and rewrite history, for only by doing so can it confront the present and hope to avoid the mistakes of the past.
In the case of Germany, the duty becomes inescapable. Its very complexity clearly makes the task more difficult but also more exciting. Writing a literary history also means confronting the vexed question of the canon.Otto did not become emperor until , however, and the two Henrys passage is a problem, so that the poem may be about Henry s son, the equally rebellious Henry the Quarrelsome, who was reconciled with the child emperor Otto III in (and a child could have been told to receive the Duke as in the poem).
But if it was, the Romantics unwittingly revolu Romanticism in Literature and Politics - The Second Generation In Britain And Germany Romanticism in Britain and Germany diverged in the second generation as a result of very different political experiences during and after the Napoleonic wars.
