Overview

From a literary point of view, modernism is primarily a linguistic project. And lyric poetry is seen as the paradigm of modernism. Poetic texts unleash the bonds of tradition. Friedrich Nietzsche proclaims "Language as art", and modernist poets around 1900 such as Arno Holz, George, Rilke, Morgenstern follow this summons, each in their own way. The present study demonstrates this process, by comparative studies of the poets' concepts of language and by literary and linguistic interpretations, principally of poems reflecting on language. Thus both the individual and collective pathways to modernism are revealed.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Wie bereits erwähnt beeindruckt bei Henne die zum Teil minutiöse Aufarbeitung des individuellen Entwicklungsweges gerade des lyrischen Frühwerkes seiner “Musterautoren” hin zu einer je anders akzentuierten modernetypischen ästheti(zisti)schen Sprachpostion. Der philologisch sicheren Gedichtkorpora-Erschließung korrespondiert dabei eine [...] überzeugende literaturwissenschaftliche Einzelinterpretation, die programmatisch um linguistische Basiskategorien etwa der synataktischen oder semantischen Analyse angereichert wird."Stefan Elit in: Monatshefte University of Wisconsin 4/2011
