âMarvelous. . . . Wonderfully imaginative. . . . Sparkling.ââWall Street Journal   âStunning. . . . Read this book: in equal measure it will give you hope and trouble your dreams.ââLaura Dassow Walls, author of Henry David Thoreau: A Life and Passage to Cosmos: Alexander von Humboldtâs Shaping of America Georg Forster (1754â94) was in many ways self-taught and rarely had two cents to rub together, but he became one of the most dynamic figures of the Enlightenment: a brilliant writer, naturalist, explorer, illustrator, translatorâand a revolutionary. Granted the extraordinary opportunity to sail around the world as part of Captain James Cookâs fabled crew, Forster touched icebergs, walked the beaches of Tahiti, visited far-flung foreign nations, lived with purported cannibals, and crossed oceans and the equator. Forster recounted the journey in his 1777 book A Voyage Round the World, a work of travel and science that not only established Forster as one of the most accomplished stylists of the timeâand led some to credit him as the inventor of the literary travel narrativeâbut also influenced other German trailblazers of scientific and literary writing, most notably Alexander von Humboldt. A superb essayist, Forster made lasting contributions to our scientificâand especially botanical and ornithologicalâknowledge of the South Seas. Having witnessed more egalitarian societies in the southern hemisphere, Forster returned after more than three years at sea to a monarchist Europe entering the era of revolution. When, following the French Revolution of 1789, French forces occupied the German city of Mainz, Forster became a leading political actor in the founding of the Republic of Mainzâthe first democratic state on German soil. In an age of Kantian reason, Forster privileged experience. He claimed a deep connection between nature and reason, nature and politics, nature and revolution. His politics was radical in its understanding of revolution as a natural phenomenon, and in this often overlooked way his many facetsâas voyager, naturalist, and revolutionaryâwere intertwined. Yet, in the constellation of the Enlightenmentâs trailblazing naturalists, scientists, political thinkers, and writers, Forsterâs star remains relatively dim today: the Republic of Mainz was crushed, and Forster died in exile in Paris. This book is the source of illumination that Forsterâs journey so greatly deserves. Tracing the arc of this unheralded polymathâs short life, Georg Forster explores both his contributions to literature and science and the enduring relationship between nature and politics that threaded through his extraordinary four decades.

Georg Trakl's Poetry

https://www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=96482025&fc=GB&cjsku=96482025...
The chaotic mixture of elements in Trakl's poems is more apparent than real, this book argues, thus challenging the "Orphic" view of Walther Killy and his followers. A dream of unityâone of the most ancient dreams in human historyâis in fact reflected in all of Trakl's work. The recurring themes in Trakl's poetry are brought into focus through Dr. Detsch's literary, psychological, and philosophical analysis: the union of male and female in incest from the Jungian standpoint, the union of life and death from the Heideggerian standpoint and that of German Romanticism as represented by Novalis, the union of good and evil from the Dostoyevskian or Nietzschean standpoint, the mixture of images from the Goethean definition of symbolism. Trakl (1887â1914) is presented as a poet whose lyric voice sounded a cry of hope in its deepest despair. As Dr. Detsch's generous quotations from the poet's work (in the original German) make clear, Georg Trakl sought poetic expression for a union of opposites.

Georg Büchner's Woyzeck

https://www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=209594265&fc=GB&cjsku=209594265...
'Everyone's an abyss. You get dizzy if you look down.' -- Woyzeck Georg Büchnerâs Woyzeck was left unfinished at the time of its authorâs death in 1837, but the play is now widely recognised as the first âmodernâ drama in the history of European theatre. Its fragmentary form and critical socio-political content have had a lasting influence on artists, readers and audiences to this day. The abuse, exploitation, and disenfranchisement that Woyzeckâs titular protagonist endures find their mirror in his own murderous outburst. But beyond that, they also echo in the flux and confusion of the various drafts and versions in which the play has been presented since its emergence. In this fresh engagement with a modern classic, Gritzner examines the revolutionary dimensions of Büchnerâs political and creative practice, as well as modern approaches to the play in performance.

Georg Simmel’s Concluding Thoughts

https://www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=209640341&fc=US&cjsku=209640341...
This book draws upon the work of Georg Simmel to explore the limits, tensions and dynamism of social life through a close analysis of the works produced in the final years of his life and reveals what they might still offer some 100 years later. Focusing on the relationships between worlds, lives and fragments in these works, David Beer opens up a conceptual toolkit for understanding life as both an individual experience and as a deeply social phenomenon. Taking the reader through artistic and musical forms of inspiration, to the problems of culture and on to the conceptual understanding of lived experience, the book illuminates the richness of Simmel’s ideas and thinking. This sophisticated dialogue with Simmel’s lesser known later works will provide fresh insights for students and scholars of cultural and social theory and pave the way for a reinvigorated engagement with his ideas.
