Kohl's revised doctoral thesis (U. of London, 1988) analyzes Klopstock's poems and shows their rhetorical structure and the biblical foundations of language, imagery and free-verse form. Includes appendices containing the text of poems in free verse (in German), biblical material in five early hymns, and a collation of selected editions of Klopstock's works. Annotation c.
