Navid Kermani
edited by Helga Druxes, Karolin Machtans, and Alexandar Mihailovic
Bern, Switzerland : Peter Lang AG, [2016]
Navid Kermani: biographical chronology -- Preface -- Navid Kermani was zählt, ist das gesprochene Wort/What matters is the spoken word / Helga Druxes and Karolin Machtans -- "Ich weiss nicht, ob ich deutscher bin, aber ein deutscher Schriftsteller bin ich halt"/ "I don't know whether I am a German, but I am a German writer": Interview with Navid Kermani -- Part I: Literary antecedents. Johannes Kleine: Navid Kermani as an innovative poet -- Esther Schiesser: Navid Kermani and Jean Paul -- Part II: God and the nature of (divine) love. Klaus von Stosch: Fascinosum et tremendum: Navid Kermani's engagement with God's beauty and terror -- Karolin Machtans: The beauty and terror of love: grosse Liebe and Du sollst -- Part III: Mystical experience/ecstasy. Torsten Hoffmann: Losing to find: aesthetic experience in Navid Kermani's Das Buch der von Neil Young getöteten -- Jens Hobus: "Down by the river": interrelations between Islamic mysticism, music and love in Navid Kermani's work -- Part IV: Current debates: multiculture, patriotism, Muslim integration, neoliberalism. David Coury: Navid Kermani: patriotism, culture and postnational identity -- Helga Druxes: The crisis of (re)productivity in Dein Name -- Elke Segelcke: Navid Kermani's Ausnahmezustand: Reisen in eine beunruhigte Welt: travelogues as ethnography and beyond.

"Navid Kermani - author, journalist and academic - is one of the most prominent public intellectuals in Germany today. Kermani has been at the forefront of recent debates about Islam and its role in Germany's political, social and cultural life. Instead of emphasizing the differences between ethnic affiliations and religious beliefs, Kermani questions the Western notion of a clear dividing line between Islam, Christianity and Judaism, highlighting instead their affinities. In addition to his political essays, Kermani's travel journalism introduces western audiences to diverse Muslim societies in the world and his fiction provides accessible meditations on first love, contemporary music, death and friendship. This is the first volume of criticism in English dedicated to Kermani's varied work. The book features an extensive interview with the author, a reproduction in German and English of Kermani's famous 2014 Bundestag speech and a collection of critical essays on Kermani's writing. The essays, by major scholars in the field, cover issues such as gender, religion, cosmopolitanism, mystical experiences, and the power of the liberal arts in a time of neoliberal distraction."--

Figures of natality : reading the political in the age of Goethe
O'Neil, Joseph D., author
London ; Bloomsbury Academic, an imprint of Bloomsbury Publishing Plc, 2017
Lyric Births : Poetic Revolution and Maieutic Technique -- Genre, Generation, and the Retreat of the Political -- Ghostly Births : The Specter of Romanticism and the Maieutics of the Medium -- "Not as in a mirror" : Wilhelm Meister and the Haunting of Sovereignty -- Kleist's Machiavellian Mothers : Institution, Relation, Distribution -- Conclusion : Split Summits and Bifurcated Maieutics : The Political Difference and the Future of Democracy.

"Figures of Natality reads metaphors and narratives of birth in the age of Goethe (1770-1832) as indicators of the new, the unexpected, and the revolutionary. Using Hannah Arendt's concept of natality, Joseph O'Neil argues that Goethe, Schiller, and Kleist see birth as challenging paradigms of Romanticism as well as of Enlightenment, resisting the assimilation of the political to economics, science, or morality. They choose instead to preserve the conflicts and tensions at the heart of social, political, and poetic revolutions. In a historical reading, these tensions evolve from the idea of revolution as Arendt reads it in British North America to the social and economic questions that shape the French Revolution and from there to the question of the German nation. Alongside this geopolitical evolution, the ways of representing the political change, too, moving from the new as revolutionary eruption to economic metaphors of birth. More pressing still is the question of revolutionary subjectivity and political agency, and Goethe, Kleist, and Schiller have an answer that is remarkably close to that of Walter Benjamin, as that "secret index" through which each past age is "pointed toward redemption." Figures of Natality uncovers this index at the heart of scenes and products of birth in the age of Goethe."--

Stefan Zweig : Jüdische Relationen : Studien zu Werk und Biographie
herausgegeben von Mark H. Gelber, Elisabeth Erdem, Klemens Renoldner
Würzburg : Königshausen & Neumann, [2017]
The discussion of Zweig's Jewish themes and issues reveals varying degrees of intensity and leaves many traces behind. His biography and his literary work are not only connected in a variety of ways with the Jewish milieus of Vienna: Zweig also tries to find it's aesthetic position in dialogue with other Jewish artists and intellectuals in other European cities. In Zweig's literary work we recognize a commute between proximity and distance from Judaism. Jewish figures, themes and motifs play an important role here. In Germanic research, however, the distance branch to Judaism has been emphasized. This volume Stefan Zweig - Jüdische Relationen, which has emerged from an international Stefan Zweig Conference organized in Salzburg in November 2015, brings together a selection of studies on Zweig's confrontation with Judaism. At the center of the systematic and critical discussion of this subject are biographical investigations, such as the illumination of the Jewish aspect in Zweig's friendships to different personalities, and also work studies, such as Jeremiah, Schachnovelle or Die Welt von Gestern, as well as the history of his studies with Yiddish literature. --back cover

Altes Zollhaus, Staatsgrenze West : Roman
Schimmang, Jochen, 1948- author
Hamburg : Edition Nautilus, 2017
Der geschasste Bonner Politikberater Gregor Korff hat sich abgefunden mit den Umwälzungen in seinem Leben, und er profitiert sogar davon: Eine Episode aus seiner Vergangenheit hat ihm in Form eines Bestsellerromans ein recht beachtliches Vermögen eingebracht, und so ist er heute, in den 2010er Jahren, Besitzer eines ehemaligen Zollhauses an der niederländischen Grenze, wo er zurückgezogen lebt. Lange Zeit ist ein pensionierter Zöllner sein einziger Kontakt, dann aber kommt frischer Wind in sein Leben: Er lernt einen enttarnten 'Landesverräter' kennen; zwei serbische Kinder besuchen ihn auf der Durchreise; übers Kino tritt er in Kontakt mit zwei jungen Leuten aus der nahen niederrheinischen Kleinstadt, und ein Freund aus Gregors aktiven Tagen stattet ihm einen Besuch ab. Der "alte Spinner vom Zollhaus" wird nach und nach wieder vergesellschaftet. Gregor Korff ist definitiv nicht auf der Höhe der Zeit, und eben dieser Abstand schärft seinen Blick. "Mit seinem neuen Roman "Altes Zollhaus, Staatsgrenze West" schreibt Jochen Schimmang weiter an seiner Chronologie der Bundesrepublik. Mit ihm lernt man, das Kleine, Unbedeutende, Mode-Abgewandte zu lieben - und darin das Leben. Keine Seite ist langweilig!" (deutschlandradiokultur.de).

My grandmother asked me to tell you she's sorry : a novel
Backman, Fredrik, 1981- author
New York, NY : Washington Square Press, [2016]
Elsa is seven years old and different. Her grandmother is seventy-seven years old and crazy--as in standing-on-the-balcony-firing-paintball-guns-at-strangers crazy. She is also Elsa's best, and only, friend. At night Elsa takes refuge in her grandmother's stories, in the Land-of-Almost-Awake and the Kingdom of Miamas, where everybody is different and nobody needs to be normal. When Elsa's grandmother dies and leaves behind a series of letters apologizing to people she has wronged, Elsa's greatest adventure begins. Her grandmother's instructions lead her to an apartment building full of drunks, monsters, attack dogs, and old crones but also to the truth about fairy tales and kingdoms and a grandmother like no other. My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She's Sorry is told with the same comic accuracy and beating heart as Fredrik Backman's bestselling debut novel, A Man Called Ove. It is a story about life and death and one of the most important human rights: the right to be different. -- Provided by publisher.

Goethe's Faust I : the making and impact of a contemporary performance
edited by Heinz-Uwe Haus and David W. Lovell
Newcastle upon Tyne : Cambridge Scholars Publishing, 2016
In March 2014, the University of Delaware's Resident Ensemble Players staged the first Part of Goethe's Faust, adapted and directed by Heinz-Uwe Haus, which forms the centrepiece and raison d'etre of this book. This book tracks the creative process of Haus's adaptation of the play and his attempts to elicit responses from his international networks to his question: how is Goethe's Faust relevant today? It brings together comments from stage and costume designers as they brought their own creativity and understanding of the audience to bear on the play, and presents a brief record of the production itself, through stage directions and the photography of Bill Browning. The book then explores the reactions the production has elicited amongst some of its audience.
