Editorial Reviews

Review

“Hartmann von Aue is a writer who belongs in the company of Chrétien de Troyes, Wolfram von Eschenbach, and Gottfried von Strassburg. At last we have a volume that brings together all of Hartmann’s works in translations that are authoritative and readable.”

—Edward R. Haymes, Cleveland State University



“An excellent example of good translation skills, and it also has the advantage over the other versions of containing all the works of Hartmann of Aue.”

—A. R. Wedel, CHOICE



“Attempting to deal with the complete works of any prolific writer in any genre is a daunting challenge, but Frank Tobin, Kim Vivian, and Richard Lawson have done Hartmann and the literature that he represents a great service.

"As a complete anthology of Hartmann’s works intending to bring a larger audience among English-language readers to this important writer, its goal is admirably attained.”

—George E. Harding, South Atlantic Review



“The translations are remarkably consistent, both in tone and style, and the notes have been seamlessly referenced from one text to the next. . . . This volume will give a broad audience long-awaited access to one of medieval Germany’s most significant poets as an excellent addition to introductory courses in medieval studies, as a fine acquisition for general library collections, and as essential (and enjoyable) reading for all medievalists who are not yet familiar with the work of Hartmann von Aue.”

—Alexandra Sterling-Hellenbrand, Speculum: A Journal of Medieval Studies



“In conclusion, this volume will give a broad audience long-awaited access to one of medieval Germany's most significant poets as an excellent addition to introductory courses in medieval studies, as a fine acquisition for general library collections, and as essential (and enjoyable) reading for all medievalists who are not yet familiar with the work of Hartmann von Aue.”

—Alexandra Sterling-Hellenbrand, Review

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Brilliant and anomalous, Hartmann was one of a kind. Material that in the hands of Chretien is airy fluff, for example, becomes a quest to reconcile the apparently conflicting directives of life, the universe, and everything in a world in which the rules have suddenly changed completely. While reading him in the original is all very well for those who can do it, it is a huge boon that his work is now accessible in this clear, conversational, scholarly translation.
