'Titurel', a later offshoot of Wolfram von Eschenbach's 'Parzival', can be seen as one of the most enigmatic works in the history of German literature. With its highly complex form, the darkness of its language and imagery, and its fragmentary character, it is one of the most fascinating linguistic creations of the Middle Ages. This new edition, with its wealth of ancillary material, now makes the work accessible to a wider readership for the first time.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Sich den Geheimnissen von Wolframs Titurel zu nähern, einige dieser vielleicht sogar zu lösen, dafür haben nun Helmut Brackert und Stephan Fuchs-Jolie mit der hier anzuzeigenden, vorbildlichen Edition die besten Voraussetzungen geschaffen. [...] Die vorliegende Ausgabe des Titurel ist ein Meisterstück philologischer Bemühung, durch die für diesen schwierigen und bedeutsamen Text mit Sicherheit neue Leser wie neue Erkenntnisse gewonnen werden."Martin Baisch in:IASL online 2004 "Helmut Brackert und Stephan Fuchs-Jolie haben eine vorzügliche und maßgebende Titurel-Ausgabe vorgelegt, auf die in Forschung und Lehre mit großem Nutzen aufgebaut werden wird."Sebastian Baierin: Zeitschrift für Germanistik 1/2004 "Mit ihrer editorischen Großleistung, die wohl erst mit einer anderen Technologie als der Buchform eines Tages obsolet gemacht werden könnte, und mit dem Reichtum, der Ausführlichkeit und Subtilität ihres Kommentars haben Helmut Brackert und Stephan Fuchs-Jolie die Wolfram- und >Titurel<-Forschung weit vorangebracht. Die Lachmann-Zählung gehört liebevoll verabschiedet, die BFJ-Zählung sei gegrüßt."Alexander Sager in: Beiträge zur Geschichte der deutschen Sprache und Literatur 2/2004 "Nun endlich verfügt die Literaturwissenschaft über eine Textausgabe, die in jeder Hinsicht als vorbildhaft zu gelten hat. Weit entfernt von Moden [...] ist hier wohl der Idelfall einer wissenschaftlichen Textedition zu bewundern."Micheal Dallapiazza in: Mediaevistik 17/2004
