Nils C. Ritter,
Volume 2 in this series
This volume examines the history of short literary forms between Baroque and modernist literature. The essays look at how the license of short literary forms was negotiated within and beyond the codified poetics of the Baroque period. Against the backdrop of historical upheaval, they identify the potential and the attractiveness of these works for literary modernism, which takes the Baroque era as its defining object of reflection.
