Jean Paul


Historisch-kritische Ausgabe

[Works. Historical-critical Edition]

Ed. by Pfotenhauer, Helmut / Hunfeld, Barbara


    Aims and Scope

    Jean Paul is one of the great classics of German literature. This new historical-critical edition of part of his works presents the core area of Jean Paul’s output for the first time from a consideration of the process of composition; it not only presents the texts in what the author regarded as their final form, but also allows the reader access to versions of the works never previously edited and to preliminary handwritten studies on a large scale. The commentary sets out the rich variety of Jean Paul’s metaphors using previously inaccessible posthumous collections and presents a new view of an author long regarded as difficult to understand.
