This book offers the first complete English translation of the poems by the late-medieval German (Tyrolean) Oswald von Wolkenstein (1376/1377-1445). Oswald von Wolkenstein was one of the leading poets of his time and created some of the most exciting, experimental, and also deeply religious-conservative poetry of the entire Middle Ages and far beyond. German scholarship and musicologists have long recognized the extraordinary strength and power of Oswald s Middle High German songs, both in terms of his poetic imagery and his musical performance. This book proves Oswald's uvre to be one of the most idiosyncratic and individualistic in the entire late Middle Ages. Classen reveals how Oswald continued the medieval tradition, yet was a true innovator, exploring new attitudes toward love, sexuality, travel, war, politics, language, music, and, above all, his own individuality.

One notable feature of the epoch of Middle High German is that, in the research and teaching in this field, the transmission history, textual philology, historical linguistics and literary history are intrinsically linked. In over 30 essays dedicated to Kurt Gartner on his 75th birthday, older and younger colleagues in the field as a whole examine his many years of work in this area. The spectrum of themes of the contributions reflects the jubiliarian s diversity of interests and also provides a comprehensive insight into current research activities."

The German and Spanish-speaking worlds have, over the centuries, developed an intrinsic relationship, one which predates the Habsburg dynasty and the Renaissance and baroque periods. The cross-fertilization and challenges have been both fruitful and complex with novel inventions surfacing in one culture often achieving their greatest prosperity in the other: Martin Luther's Protestant Reformation stimulated a response in Spain that was to define the European Counter Reformation; Spanish Baroque writers were seminal in the development of German Romanticism; Carl Christian Friedrich Krause and other nineteenth-century liberals provided the foundation for Spanish reformist efforts on the one hand, while German conservatives like Novalis and Adam Müller inspired conservatvies on the other; the music of Richard Wagner transformed Spanish music and the Spanish stage at the turn of the twentieth century; Pablo Picasso and other artists of the Spanish avant-garde sparkled the enthusiasm of the Germans before the Nazi era. Today, German and Spanish intellectuals and writers share a similar commitment to the creation of a European culture in the face of resistance from other members of the European Union. Viewed from a variety of disciplines this volume explores the relentlessly consistent, albeit often forgotten connections between the two linguistic and cultural groups revealing the myriad of ways in which they have shared and transformed literature, art, culture, politics, and history.

Vom Sangspruch zum Meisterlied

The study focuses on the transition from medieval Sangspruch poetry to the urban Meistergesang of the 16th century, a transition traced with reference to the emergence of the multi-stanza meisterlied from the earlier single-stanza variety as reflected in one single manuscript. The process is identified (a) as a function of the development from oral performance to the scriptural nature of the manuscripts, and (b) as a differentiating factor in the history of the genre. In the further course of the book, new thought is given to medial parameters in the transfer of literary knowledge into the early modern age.
