Wolframs ›Titurel‹ und der Mythos der Minne

Stefan Seeber
Published Online: 2010-08-24 | DOI: https://doi.org/10.1515/bgsl.2010.005

The article is concerned with the presentation of Minne in Wolfram von Eschenbach's ›Titurel‹. Based on Kiening's and Köbele's considerations on the metaphorical quality of the speaking of courtly love in the fragments, it argues that Wolfram's text is structured by a mythic concept of Minne. This concept transcends the standards of discourse established around 1200 by using elements of mythic narration like homology, polarization and the repetition of basic patterns. Wolfram's ›Titurel‹ thus presents its reader with a deification of Minne which resists (modern) logic approach. The concept functions as »mythic analogon« and allows Wolfram to design his poem on the myth of love as a mythic narrative.
