Scholars from Britain and elsewhere in Europe explore German and Swiss literature from the perspectives of literary connections and exchanges, mapping cities and oceans, crossing borders, translation, and linguistic creativity. Among their topics are German Romantic poet Joseph von Eichendorff (1788-1857) and the House of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, Alice Rivaz's urban landscapes, the 19th-century Swiss experience of the Americas in two novels by Eveline Hasler, whether Ingo Schulze's Simple Storys is an American German novel, Hansjorg Schneider's adaptation of Friedrich Schiller's Wilhelm Tell, and Zsuzsanna Gahse's Swiss-European volume Instabile Texte. There is no index. Price is converted from euros and subject to fluctuation.
