Summary
In perhaps 25 years of creative productivity (ca. 1180-ca. 1205), Hartmann von Aue authored a dispute about love between the body and the heart, <I>Die Klage,</I> numerous songs of courtly love, crusading songs, and most likely took part in a Crusade himself. He composed the first German Arthurian romance, <I>Erec,</I> based on Chrétien's like-named work, and he -- apparently -- ended his literarycareer with a second, <I>Iwein</I>. Further, he is the creator of two provocative rel-igious-didactic works, <I>Gregorius,</I> a tale of double incest, repentance, and redemption, and <I>Der arme Heinrich,</I> the account of a seemingly perfect nobleman who is stricken with leprosy and then ultimately cured by a process set into motion by a very young peasant girl, whom he ultimately marries. Noother medieval German poet treats such an extraordinary breadth of themes at such a high level of artistic expression. The essays in this volume, written by scholars from North America and Europe, offer insight into many aspects of Hartmann's <I>oeuvre,</I> including the medieval and modern visual and literary reception of his works. The volume also offers considerations of Hartmann and Chrétien;Hartmann's putative theological background and the influence of the Bible on his tales; the reflection of his medical knowledge in <I>Der arme Heinrich</I> and <I>Iwein</I>; and a complete survey of his lyric production. Newer avenues of research are also presented, with essays on issues of gender and on the role of pain as a constitutive part of the courtly experience. It is hoped that this volume will prove to be a stimulating companion not only for those familiar with Hartmann but also for those who are just making the acquaintance of one of the greatest of medieval German poets.<BR><BR>Francis G. Gentry is Professor Emeritus of German at the Pennsylvania State University and the University of Wisconsin-Madison
