Germany Literature from 1750 to the Present Day Part 10

But precisely for this reason, when 1948 also failed in Germany and the interpreters of the revolution sought safety outside their homeland, in England, in Switzerland, in France, and the reaction regained power, the new state of mind that followed at the new generations was of concentration, and for a few years literature again began to lose interest in public life, to close itself in the search for pure poetry, to withdraw into the world of individual sentiment. By aiming…

Germany Literature from 1750 to the Present Day Part 9

When in 1834 Ludolf Wienbarg (1802-1872) dedicated his programmatic Ästhetische Feldzüge to the “Junges Deutschland”, with their hymn to freedom, to reality, with their gospel of the “emancipation of the flesh”, the time was therefore ripe to welcome the new word. To the protest against political oppression, which intensified more and more after the Restoration, was added the protest against all that had been the immediate past: against the serene “Olympics” of the classics, against idealistic philosophy, against romanticism. From Federico Schlegel…

According to LOCALBUSINESSEXPLORER, it is a poem that arises out of every possible grouping of schools and trends: a poem of men who bring into their work at most the small world to which they belong and above all bring themselves, their own subjective experience into it. Not otherwise, after the passionate romantic poems of the Peregrina cycle, E. Mörike (1804-1874), who became parish priest of Cleversulzbuch in 1834, quietly waited, for himself, to grasp the imperceptible voices of life, to translate…

While the early romanticism had revealed a new poetic world by creating a new interiority, the new romanticism thus offered with a treasure of previously unknown national poetry a new source of inspiration. And largely to Germanic history and legend F. de la Motte Fouqué (1777-1843) resorted to for his narrative and dramatic compositions; Brentano and Arnim were inspired in various ways by Germanic history and legend; the ballad found an almost inexhaustible source of poetic motifs, from Brentano down…

Germany Literature from 1750 to the Present Day Part 6

Few works of complete poetry were born: the Hymns to the night (1800), the Henry of Ofterdingen, the songs of Novalis; some chapters by Wackenroder; some lyrics and some prose by L. Tieck; some moments of Schleiermacher’s high religious prose, etc.; the rest remained in the state of fragment, of aphorism, of intuition immediately formulated: as if the internal fullness of ever new experiences left no time to elaborate and develop ideas flashing in a continuous intoxication. But what influence these discoveries immediately…

According to GETZIPCODES, Schiller died in 1805; Little by little Humboldt was taken more and more by political activity; Goethe alone was able to continue his indefatigable work as a creator in spiritual calm, and gave the first psychological novel of the modern age in the Wahlverwandschaften (1809); and with Westöstlicher Diwan (1814) he introduced the contemplative mystical inspiration of the East in poetry; and integrated the Meister with the Wanderjahre (1829) and completed the Faust before dying(1831), reflecting in poetry the new life of the new times as the…

According to DISEASESLEARNING, the poetry of purity of heart, in which a few years later (1787) Goethe renewed the myth of Iphigenia in a modern sense – Das Leben ist der Güter höchstes nicht, der Übel grösstes aber ist die Schuld – shows the intimate connection of this attitude with what will become the characteristic of his personality: his classicism. While in the vicinity of Madame di Stein the tumultuous waves of instinct gradually subsided and in the exercise of a practical activity…

Herder’s pupil in Strasbourg, but a poet “by the grace of God”, and, unlike the Stürmer und Dränger Goethe (v.) was the real creator of this new poem, also bearing in poetry, by internal necessity of his own nature, that “divine harmonious order” that Herder recognized as the “presence of God in the universe”. That sense of the “becoming” of life, for which the new times had come more and more clearly opposing the static rationalistic conception, that new sense of the…

The poet thus ceases to be the professor who has studied the rules on poetry of the past or the gentleman who “anoints the rim of the vase with sweet licor” to pour out his precepts. Now delicate like Hölty, now rough and impulsive like Voss, now turbid and restless like Bürger, now soft at the bottom and incapable of inner balance like Stolberg under the mystical influence of Gallitzin, poets are emotional natures, dominated by their own emotions. The…

Germany diminished interest in deductive reasoning, and instinctive turning of reflection to the immediacy of life; direct observation of reality; development of the critical spirit in contact with experience, independently of any ideology, were the first elements of this deepening for which the Aufklärung, ceasing to be an epilogue of the past, generated new orientations, beyond what had initially been the its limit. While Popularphilosophie (M. Mendelssohn, 1729-1786; F. Nicolai, 1733-1811; etc.) continued to support the now tranquil rationalistic current, limiting itself to…

Australia Financial Policy in the 1990’s

The recovery was also supported by the strategy adopted by the central bank, the Reserve Bank of Australia, which piloted a gradual decrease in the official interest rate. This, maintained at high values ​​until 1991, was retouched downwards eight times in 1992, reaching in 1993 the lowest level of the last twenty-five years. The central bank was able to implement an easing of monetary policy without fearing the growth of consumer prices, above all because the cooling of domestic demand,…

Australia Flora – Origin and Affinity

Australia Flora – Origin and Affinity

According to Bentham the predominant part of the Australian vegetation appears as strictly indigenous and the endemic species and genera must have originated or differentiated in Australia without ever leaving it. There are few exceptions, such as certain species of Eucalyptus, Epacridaceae and Phillodinus Acacias found in Malaysia and few annuals or herbaceous plants that have been found in southern China. “The most singular phenomenon, represented by this wonderful Australian endemic flora, says Andrews (I, p. 231), is the affluence, segregation…

Argentina Rivers and Lakes

Argentina Rivers and Lakes

Depending on the morphology described now, from the hydrographic point of view, Argentina has only two sides: the main Atlantic, and a much smaller, peaceful one, largely created by catches in a fairly recent time. However, due to the great irregularity in the superficial distribution of the rains, more than for strictly morphological reasons, not all the waters that collect on the Atlantic side reach the sea, indeed most of the side consists of basins without outflow, in which the…

Musical art manifested itself in Sweden much later and less vigorously than in other European countries; at first it was rather a phenomenon of reflection of foreign art, especially of Italian and German art, than a spontaneous and original product of national artistic sensibility, although this already had considerable traditions in the field of popular art. It is at the beginning of the century. XVII, in fact, that for the first time a Swedish musician of some importance is met:…
