Niederländische Literatur bis 1550
[Bibliography of Dutch Literature in German Translation. Vol.1: Dutch Literature up to 1550]
Aims and Scope
Secular and sacred Dutch medieval literature was particularly rich and influential. It was not only supported and promoted by many important authors (incl. Hadewijch and Heinrich von Veldeke) but also often provided the bridge for Middle High German literature to Old French literature (epics around Charlemagne). This bibliography is the first to provide a comprehensive documentation of the reception of Middle Dutch works in German literature up to the present day. As a chapter in the history of European cultural relations, it affords a completely new view of the dynamics of the transfer of early Dutch literature into the German language area.
