about

This 1981 text is a study of the narrative techniques in two important thirteenth-century German romances: one by Wolfram von Eschenbach, considered by many as the greatest poet of medieval Germany; the other by a lesser-known but highly skilled follower of Wolfram. This analysis of narrative technique contributes to the trend towards a broader perspective in medieval literary studies, in which critical modes developed in the study of modern works are applied helpfully to older literature. The conclusions reached should prove important for the understanding of modern conceptions of narrative as well.
