Overview

Bavarica Anglica: A Cross-Cultural Miscellany. Presented to Tom Fletscher by Otto Hietsch

This volume presented to a deserving English scholar is a valuable contribution to the treatment of «cultural comparisons and cultural relationships» in an intriguing field, Bavaria and England. Written in a sprightly and conversational tone, this book offers enjoyment as well as practical knowledge. To mention just a few of the many and varied topics: parallels in proverbs, bridges from dialect to dialect, English versions of folksongs from Southern Germany. Historical personalities like the saintly Oswald and the unsaintly Sir George Etherege make their entrance on the stage; modern writers such as Jerome K. Jerome and Graham Greene are highlighted against the German backdrop.
