Aims and Scope
The Asiatische Banise (“The Asian Banise”) (1689), written by Heinrich Anshelm von Zigler und Kliphausen (1663-1697), was the most successful German baroque novel before Goethe’s Werther. Its popularity throughout Europe is further evidenced by the publication of a sequel novel; several operatic versions, stage plays, and poems; as well as translations into Swedish, Russian, Dutch, and French. This interdisciplinary collection documents and analyzes for the first time the singular history of the reception of the Asiatische Banise.
