Encuadernación: Hardcover

Condición del libro: Brand new

Descripción:

Islam has been a rich topic in German-language literature since the middle ages, and the writings about it not only reveal much about Islamic culture but also about the European "home" culture. Many of the early essays in this chr onologically arranged volume uncover fresh evidence of how German writers used images of Islam-as-other to define their individual subject positions as well as to define the German nation and the Christian religion. The perspectiv es of many contemporary writers are, however, far removed from such a polar opposition of cultures. Their experience of the German-Islamic encounter is complicated by a crucial factor: many of them emerge from Muslim migrant commu nities such as the German-Turkish community. The culturally hybrid origins of these writers and their expression of experiences and ideologies that cross boundaries of East and West, Christendom and Islam, strongly affect the find ings of the essays as the volume moves toward the present. The texts discussed include travelogues and other firsthand encounters with Islam; reports for colonial authorities; aesthetic treatises on Islamic art; literary, essayist ic, and theological writing on Islamic religious practice; the incorporation of characters, situations, and settings from the Islamic world into fiction or drama; and fictional and autobiographical writing by Muslims in German. Contributors: Cyril Edwards, Silke Falkner, James Hodkinson, Timothy R. Jackson, Margaret Littler, Rachel MagShamráin, Frauke Matthes, Yomb May, Jeffrey Morrison, Kate Roy, Monika Shafi, Edwin Wieringa, W. Daniel Wilson, Karin E. Yesilada. James Hodkinson is Assistant Professor of German at Warwick University; Jeffrey Morrison is Senior Lecturer at the National University of Ireland, Maynooth. N° de ref. de la librería 9393

Sinopsis: Islam has been a rich topic in German-language literature since the middle ages, and the writings about it not only reveal much about Islamic culture but also about the European "home" culture. Many of the early essays in this chronologically arranged volume uncover fresh evidence of how German writers used images of Islam-as-other to define their individual subject positions as well as to define the German nation and the Christian religion. The perspectives of many contemporary writers are, however, far removed from such a polar opposition of cultures. Their experience of the German-Islamic encounter is complicated by a crucial factor: many of them emerge from Muslim migrant communities such as the German-Turkish community. The culturally hybrid origins of these writers and their expression of experiences and ideologies that cross boundaries of East and West, Christendom and Islam, strongly affect the findings of the essays as the volume moves toward the present. The texts discussed include travelogues and other firsthand encounters with Islam; reports for colonial authorities; aesthetic treatises on Islamic art; literary, essayistic, and theological writing on Islamic religious practice; the incorporation of characters, situations, and settings from the Islamic world into fiction or drama; and fictional and autobiographical writing by Muslims in German.

Críticas: This important essay collection will be an essential reference-point for all those examining the increasing presence of Islam in German culture. MODERN LANGUAGE REVIEW Leads to the fundamental and still unresolved question whether there can be cultural understanding beyond religious boundary lines. . . . The editors and many of the contributors fix their scholarly gazes on the Orient and Islam and the different ways they have been portrayed in literature in such a way that the reader understands that only a conception of Orient and Islam in terms of multiple images merits scholarly study. GERMAN QUARTERLY (E)xcellent. . . . This important essay collection will be an essential reference-point for all those examining the increasing presence of Islam in German culture. MODERN LANGUAGE REVIEW (Ritchie Robertson) This welcome volume opens up ground that has seldom been explored in this depth before. JOURNAL OF EUROPEAN STUDIES (A) useful addition to German Studies. MONATSHEFTE (T)his volume explores a wide range of Germanophone encounters with Islam across a variety of genres, and is without a doubt an important contribution to scholarship on modes of engagement with Islam and the Muslim worlds in German literature and culture.
