The nine studies contained in this volume are devoted to German and comparative literature and to cultural history and the history of ideas. They are centered, on the one hand, upon the oeuvre and influence of Friedrich Nietzsche and, on the other, upon the work of Bertolt Brecht. Each author is discussed in the context of world literature, with special emphasis on his relationship to England and the United States. Additional aspects include problems of translation and reception as well as theory and "Imagologie, " plus philosophical and theological questions.
