Pietism in Petticoats and Other Comedies999Specialorder (osäker tillgång). Skickas inom 11-20 vardagar.
Gratis frakt inom Sverige över 159 kr för privatpersoner.Luise Adelgunde Gottsched (1713-1762), poet, essayist, translator, and playwright, was regarded during her lifetime as intellectually the most formidable woman in Germany. Together with her better-known husband, Johann C. Gottsched, she crusaded to reform the language and literary taste of the Germans. Frau Gottsched's most important contribution to German literature came in the form of her translations and original comedies in the French classical style. The present volume offers for the first time in English translation Luise Gottsched's five original comedies, including Pietism in Petticoats (1736). The targets of her biting wit are hypocritical religious fundamentalists, the gentry, middle-class social climbers, German francophiles, and pseudo-intellectuals. These witty satires make it obvious why Luise has come to be viewed as the mother of the modern German comedy.

"By making four of Gottsched's five comedies available in English for the first time, the translators have facilitated the long-overdue scholarly re-assessment of Gottsched's writing, and, most importantly, regained her what every author needs most: a readership." LESSING YEARBOOK XXVI
