The Social And Political Philosophy Of Bertolt Brecht,
Western Michigan University
The Social And Political Philosophy Of Bertolt Brecht, Anthony Squiers
Bertolt Brecht is widely considered to be one of the most important figures in Twentieth Century literature. An acclaimed poet, he is best known as a playwright and director. His 'epic theatre' revolutionized the theatre by creating radical breaks from traditional literary and theatrical form. These radical breaks were done in an effort to facilitate radical social change. Specifically, Brecht designed his epic theatre as a revolutionary aesthetic which would help bring about the advent of a Marxist revolution. There is a broad corpus of academic work which analyzes the formalistic elements of his work. However, this body of work ...

No Nazis In Valhalla: Understanding The Use (And Misuse) Of Nordic Cultural Markers In Third Reich Era Germany, Lena Nighswander
International ResearchScape Journal
While medieval concepts are frequently used as a means for the general public to understand emerging global political institutions around the world, they also have immense capability to be purposely misused by political groups due to the generally vague and misguided understanding of these concepts by the masses. At one core of these movements is the legacy of Vikings and the misrepresentation of their history by far-right political groups, especially in mid-20th century Europe, in order to push a fictitious agenda of a prosperous, all-white race of seafaring warriors. Through the appropriation of medieval Old Norse imagery and mythology ...

Der Faust’Sche Paradox Und Wer An Kindsmord Schuld Ist,
Der Faust’Sche Paradox Und Wer An Kindsmord Schuld Ist, Nele Löcher
Undergraduate German Research Conference
Die größte Gefahr für Frauen im 18. Jahrhundert war die patriarchale Machtstruktur, die ihre Leben bestimmte. Dies beschäftigte nicht nur die Frauen, die unter ihr litten, sondern auch die Autoren des Sturm und Drang. Diese Männer der Aufklärung waren vor allem von der Tragödie des Kindsmords inspiriert. Bespielhaft hierfür sind die berühmten Werke Faust (Johann Wolfgang von Goethe schrieb mehrere Fassungen und zwei Teile, ich werde mich nur mit Faust I beschäftigen). Faust, der zwar als hervorragender, aber auch als typischer Mann beschrieben wird folgt einem Schema der Zeit. Er ist angezogen von der Unschuld und Tugend von Gretchen, doch ...
A Comparative Analysis Of Character Depiction In The Grimms’ Kinder-Und Hausmärchen And Modern Fairytale Adaptations,

A Comparative Analysis Of Character Depiction In The Grimms’ Kinder-Und Hausmärchen And Modern Fairytale Adaptations, Meghan Hill
This thesis examines the depiction of archetypal characters such as the step-mother, the old crone/witch, the trickster, the hero, and the heroine within Kinder-und Hausmärchen, first published in 1812 by Jakob and Wilhelm Grimm, and the influence that German culture had on this portrayal. This analysis of the tales will then be contrasted with an examination of the ways that modern authors and directors have adapted the presentation of these characters to better appeal to today’s audience in recent (1980-2014) adaptations of the stories. Our cultural values and ideals determine how characters within the tales are depicted and ...

The Genesis Of The Sonderweg, Annie Everett
International Social Science Review
The precarious legacy of National Socialism has informed much, if not all, of German historiography in the decades since Fritz Fischer first published German War Aims in the First World War in 1961. Sonderweg historiography (scholarship that explores the notion that Germany has followed a separate path to modernity) attempts to anchor the field with two historical assumptions: that an understanding of the greater German past necessitates an inherently negative diagnosis of German ills, and that this diagnosis is a product of and hinges on the emergence of National Socialism in Germany. But what if we excluded National Socialism from ...
Robert Schumann's Piano Sonata No. 1 In F-Sharp Minor, Op. 11–Style And Structure,
James Madison University
Robert Schumann's Piano Sonata No. 1 In F-Sharp Minor, Op. 11–Style And Structure, Stephanie Abigail Emberley
Robert Schumann's music reflects the complexity of his life and psyche. Even Schumann himself acknowledged the challenges this presented to anyone attempting to understand his music, and the Piano Sonata no. 1 in F-sharp minor, op. 11 is an example of the complex inter-relationship between Schumann's music and life. This document will have a three-fold approach to discussing Schumann's Sonata. I will outline the literary characteristics of German Romantic authors, discuss how Schumann musically interprets these characteristics while reflecting other composers, and show how these techniques help add extra-musical significance to op. 11, particularly in connection with ...

The Disintegration Of Modern Culture. Nietzsche And The Information Age, Edgar Landgraf
German Faculty Publications
The article revisits Nietzsche’s provocative claim that the Enlightenment’s emphasis on education and open exchange of information promotes rather than prevents the “loss of meaning” from a media studies and systems theoretical perspective. Nietzsche in fact ties what he understands as modern culture’s disintegration to information-processing modes of modern society, that is, as effects of the modern educational system and the mass media (at his time, the printing press). The article argues that while Nietzsche is an astute observer of modernity, his call for a return to a more authentic culture (with its daunting political implications) is ...
