Das Märchen vom Märchen

Theresia Dingelmaier beleuchtet das Phänomen des jüdischen Märchens in deutscher Sprache aus literaturwissenschaftlicher, gattungstheoretischer und kulturgeschichtlicher Sicht und legt dessen transkulturelles und identitätsstiftendes narratives Potential offen. In einer aufwendigen Zusammenstellung der Textbestände aus dem 19. und 20. Jahrhundert gelingt ihr darin eine umfassende Rekonstruktion des Textkorpus. Viele der Autorinnen und Autoren, darunter Ilse Herlinger, Ludwig Strauß und Irma Singer, sind heute fast vergessen. Dieser Band stellt nicht nur die einzelnen deutsch- bzw. österreichisch-jüdischen Volks- und Kindermärchen vor, sondern auch deren Quellen und Traditionen, Implikationen und Hoffnungen, ihre Adaptionen und Wechselwirkungen und eröffnet darin gänzlich neue Erkenntnisse über die Gattung Märchen. Theresia Dingelmaier aims to shed light on the phenomenon of Jewish fairy tales in the German language from a literary, genre-theoretical and cultural-historical perspective and to reveal its transcultural and identity-creating narrative potential. In an elaborate compilation of the text holdings from the 19th and 20th centuries, she succeeds in a comprehensive reconstruction of the text corpus. Many of the authors, including Ilse Herlinger, Ludwig Strauß and Irma Singer, are today almost forgotten; their fairy tales can only be found in a few archives and libraries. This book presents not only the individual german- or austrian-jewish folk tales and children´s tales, but also their sources and traditions, implications and hopes, their adaptations and interactions, and opens up completely new insights into the genre of fairy tales.

Myths from Mesopotamia
11,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The ancient civilization of Mesopotamia thrived between the rivers Tigris and Euphrates over 4,000 years ago. The myths collected here, originally written in cuneiform on clay tablets, include parallels with the biblical stories of the Creation and the Flood, and the famous Epic of Gilgamesh, the tale of a man of great strength, whose heroic quest for immortality is dashed through one moment of weakness. Recent developments in Akkadian grammar and lexicography mean that this new translation, complete with notes, a glossary of deities, place-names, and key terms, and illustrations of the mythical monsters featured in the text, will replace all other versions.
