by Helmut Grugger, Der Generationenroman Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Der Generationenroman book, Der anhaltende internationale Trend zu Generationenromanen, eine klare Herausforderung für die Literaturwissenschaften, zeichnet sich in der Vergabe renommierter Buchpreise ebenso ab wie in immer neuen Experimenten mit der Form. Das Handbuch vereinigt und diskutiert zahlreiche bedeutende Beispiele der Gattung in einer durchdachten Struktur, wobei die drei Themenblöcke Familiensysteme, Historisches (Repräsentation) und Erinnerung den gemeinsamen Ausgangspunkt bilden. Basis der Analysen ist ein aktueller Begriff der interdisziplinären Generationenforschung. Durch eine die einzelnen Philologien übergreifende Herangehensweise kann ein solider Überblick zur aktuellen Vielfalt des Genres gewonnen werden, ohne die Chronologie zu vernachlässigen. Die Gegenüberstellung mit der Generationenthematik in der literarischen Moderne dient der Einordnung der gegenwärtigen Entwicklung, während exemplarische Analysen der Literatur des Zwischenraums von 1945 bis 1995 die zeitliche Lücke schließen und zugleich die kontinuierliche Veränderung des Genres erhellen. So, wie dieser Band eine reiche Fundgrube für alle literarisch Interessierten darstellt, bietet er den thematisch Forschenden eine unentbehrliche Grundlage.

by Rares G. Piloiu, The Quest For Redemption Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Quest For Redemption book, The Quest for Redemption: Central European Jewish Thought in Joseph Roth's Works by Rares Piloiu fills an important gap in Roth scholarship, placing Roth's major works of fiction for the first time in the context of a generational interest in religious redemption among the Jewish intellectuals of Central Europe. In it, Piloiu argues that Roth's challenging, often contradictory and ambivalent literary output is the result of an attempt to recast moral, political, and historical realities of an empirically observable world in a new, religiously transfigured reality through the medium of literature. This diegetic recasting of phenomenological encounters with the real is an expression of Roth's belief that, since the self and the world are in a continuing state of crisis, issuing from their separation in modernity, a restoration of their unity is necessary to redeem the historical existence of individuals and communities alike. Piloiu notes, however, that Roth's enterprise in this is not unique to his work, but rather is shared by an entire generation of Central European Jewish intellectuals. This generation, disillusioned by modernity's excessive secularism, rationalism, and nationalism, sought a radical solution in the revival of mystical religious traditions-above all, in the Judaic idea of messianic redemption. Their use of the Chasidic notion of redemption was highly original in that it stripped the notion of its original theological meaning and applied it to the secular experience of reality. As a result, Roth's quest for redemption is a quest for a salvation of the individual not outside, but within, history.
by Marja Vuorinen, Regime Changes In 20th Century Europe Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Regime Changes In 20th Century Europe book, In retrospect, historical change often appears to be both logical and inevitable. Yet, as a process, as a series of moments, it is by nature open-ended. The protagonists are unaware of the potential consequences of their choices, as well as the meaning of their actions in the greater scheme of things. An individual, in real time and in the middle of events, has little scope for understanding the whole. The dynamic of a regime change involves a journey away from a particular past towards a chosen future, while the practices of the old regime are called into question. The competing visions for a better future often include a reactionary option, looking back towards an older period, perceived as a golden age waiting to be restored. In the aftermath of a regime change the new cadres, seeking to consolidate their power, form the new conservative bloc of the society. When revolutionary forces again begin to gather, the regime disintegrates, and the cycle begins again. So far, regime changes have been analysed as unique, one-off events. This book traces what such processes, regardless of their ideological colour, have in common. How does political power change hands? What are the mental and material tools of change? From the last stages of World War I to the present Crimean crisis, the case studies in this book offer timeless insights for understanding ideological and military conflicts, including the undercurrents of the present Russo-Western relations.
