In the Embrace of the Swan

Anglo-German Mythologies in Literature, the Visual Arts and Cultural Theory

Edited by: Rüdiger Görner and Angus Nicholls
Myths determine the way cultures understand themselves. The papers in this volume examine culturally specific myths in Britain and the German-speaking world, and compare approaches to the theory of myth, together with the ways in which mythological formations operate in literature, aesthetics and politics‑ with a focus on the period around 1800. They enquire into the consequences of myth-oriented discourses for the way in which these two cultures understand each other, and in this way make a significant contribution to a more profound approach to intercultural research.
