Book description

'Goethe Yearbook' 16 presents innovative interpretations by young scholars of Goethe's most prominent works. A special section on 20th-century theory, co-edited by Angus Nicholls, demonstrates the poet's importance within areas of contemporary debate such as postcolonial criticism and Heideggerian phenomenology. The volume includes Judith Ryan's 2007 Presidential Address to the Goethe Society on the aphorisms in 'Die Wahlverwandtschaften' and the 'Wanderjahre,' as well as essays on aspects of 'Hermann und Dorothea', 'Iphigenie', 'Wilhelm Meisters Lehrjahre', and 'Prometheus.' Readers will also find a surprising interpretation of Schiller on subjectivity and military strategy, and a feminist archival history of the Hamburg actress Charlotte Ackermann. Contributors: Volker C. Dörr, Mary Helen Dupree, Ellis Dye, Bernd Hamacher, Katrin Kohl, Michael Mandelartz, Jan Mieszkowski, Angus Nicholls, Charlton Payne, Mattias Pirholt, Myriam Richter, Judith Ryan, and Christian Weber. Daniel Purdy is associate professor of German at Pennsylvania State University. Book review editor Catriona MacLeod is associate professor of German at the University of Pennsylvania.
