Book Description

March 30 2013 1907975314 978-1907975318
One of many writers inspired by Laurence Sterne’s Tristram Shandy, the German novelist Jean Paul Richter coined the term ‘Shandean humour’ in his work of aesthetic theory. The essays in this volume investigate how Sterne’s humour functions, the reasons for its enduring appeal, and what role it played in identity-construction and in the representation of melancholy. In tracing its hitherto under-recognised impact both on literary writers, such as Jean Paul and Herman Melville, and on philosophers, including Hegel and Marx, the collection reveals that Shandean humour is a Grenzganger - a point of commerce not only between Anglophone and German discourses, but also between literature and philosophy. Klaus Vieweg is Professor of Philosophy at the Friedrich Schiller University of Jena; James Vigus is postdoctoral research fellow at the Department of English and American Studies, Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich; Kathleen M. Wheeler is Reader in English Literature at the University of Cambridge.
