about

Little attention has been focused the representation of Muslims in medieval Germany. Proceeding from a grounded use of contemporary cultural theory and close textual analysis, this study focuses Muslims in several core texts representing drama, epic, and lyric written by the most important writers of medieval Germany. Far from simply adding medieval Germany to the growing scholarly list of the 'pre-post-colonializing' European cultures, the study provides important new perspectives.
JEROLD C. FRAKES Professor of English at SUNY Buffalo, USA. He is the author, editor, or translator of over ten books, includingThe Cultural Study of Yiddish in Early Modern Europe.

Editorial Reviews

"Outstanding, fresh, and eye-opening historical contextualization. This is the work of a great contrarian thinker, a book that makes us re-evaluate our own reaction to some of the key texts of the German Middle Ages and our impetus for judging them in the way we are used to." - Seminar: A Journal of Germanic Studies
