Questioning culturally predetermined consolidations of childhood experience, this study focuses on memory and affect on the verge of linguistic formulation. Fairy tale plots frequently function as cover-ups of a deeply rooted violence that expresses itself through sensibilities of the skin and in presymbolically charged cataclysms. In a narrative border zone, early linguistic and psychic events reemerge with primordial force. Split into seemingly irreconcilable opposites, good and evil engage in warfare with each other; cannibalism and infanticide take hold of family life. Four tales are presented here as related in 1857 by the Brothers Grimm, along with new translations. Through in-depth readings of these intricately interpersonal texts, this inquiry explores a frightful silence.

Although dozens of disabled characters appear in the Grimms’ Children’s and Household Tales, the issue of disability in their collection has remained largely unexplored by scholars. In Disability, Deformity, and Disease in the Grimms’ Fairy Tales, author Ann Schmiesing analyzes various representations of disability in the tales and also shows how the Grimms’ editing (or “prostheticizing”) of their tales over seven editions significantly influenced portrayals of disability and related manifestations of physical difference, both in many individual tales and in the collection overall. Schmiesing begins by exploring instabilities in the Grimms’ conception of the fairy tale as a healthy and robust genre that has nevertheless been damaged and needs to be restored to its organic state. In chapter 2, she extends this argument by examining tales such as “The Three Army Surgeons” and “Brother Lustig” that problematize, against the backdrop of war, characters’ efforts to restore wholeness to the impaired or diseased body. She goes on in chapter 3 to study the gendering of disability in the Grimms’ tales with particular emphasis on the Grimms’ editing of “The Maiden Without Hands” and “The Frog King or Iron Henry.” In chapter 4, Schmiesing considers contradictions in portrayals of characters such as Hans My Hedgehog and the Donkey as both cripple and “supercripple”—a figure who miraculously “overcomes” his disability and triumphs despite social stigma. Schmiesing examines in chapter 5 tales in which no magical erasure of disability occurs, but in which protagonists are depicted figuratively “overcoming” disability by means of other personal abilities or traits. The Grimms described the fairy tale using metaphors of able-bodiedness and wholeness and espoused a Romantic view of their editorial process as organic restoration. Disability, Deformity, and Disease in the Grimms’ Fairy Tales shows, however, the extent to which the Grimms’ personal experience of disability and illness impacted the tales and reveals the many disability-related amendments that exist within them. Readers interested in fairy-tales studies and disability studies will appreciate this careful reading of the Grimms’ tales.

Die Einsicht in die Polyvalenz poetischer Texte zahmt die noch jeder Form diskursiver Analyse von Kunstwerken eigene Tendenz, Sinn und Bedeutung festzuschreiben. Im Spannungsfeld zwischen der anarchischen "Lust am Text" (Roland Barthes) und der "Wut des Verstehens" (Jochen Horisch) behaupten sich die 'Lekturen', die als Verstehensangebote der Vieldeutigkeit literarischer Werke durch Analysen von Form und Inhalt zur Sichtbarkeit verhelfen wollen, ohne ihnen den Atem abzuschnuren. Ihr Ziel ist es nicht, das "Ratsel" (Adorno) literarischer Kunstwerke zu losen, sondern es als "Ratsel" in seinen vielfaltigen Bedeutungsdimensionen erfahrbar zu machen, "Sinn' mithin als Ergebnis eines kommunikativen Prozesses prinzipiell offen zu halten. Ausgehend von diesen Uberlegungen versammelt der Band "Neulekturen - New Readings" Neulekturen bzw. neue Lekturen von Texten, Autoren und Motiven von der Antike bis zur unmittelbaren Gegenwart - als Angebot zum Gesprach und Herausforderung, Texte als Mittel intensiver Blickoffnungen zu begreifen, was nichts anderes heisst als: immer wieder aufs Neue zu lesen. Der Band enthalt Studien zu Medea-Bildern (Anna Chiarloni), Marie von Ebner-Eschenbachs Das Schadliche (Erika Tunner), der Figur des Juden in romantischen Marchen (Martha B. Helfer), der Reitergeschichte Hugo von Hofmannsthals (Heinz-Peter Preusser), der fruhen Romantikerinnenrezeption (Anke Gilleir), Franz Kafkas Das Urteil (Gerhard P. Knapp), Robert Walsers Tobold II (Jaak DeVos), Lion Feuchtwangers Moskau 1937 (Anne Hartmann), der Exilerfahrung im Werk Franz Werfels (Hans Wagener), Erich Frieds Nachdichtung von Dylan Thomas' Under Milk Wood (Jorg Thunecke), der Raumkonzeption in Erzahltexten Volker Brauns (Hans-Christian Stillmark), Eli Amirs Roman Nuri (Heidy Margrit Muller), Bild und Text in Christa Wolfs Sommerstuck (Roswitha Skare), Urs Widmers Der blaue Siphon (Henk Harbers), Christoph Marthalers Stunde Null (Christopher B. Balme), der Lyrik Heinz Czechowskis (Anthonya Visser), Erzahltexten von Judith Hermann und Susanne Fischer (Monika Shafi), Werner Fritschs Grabungen (Norbert Otto Eke) und zum Problem des Wissens um den Autor bei Neulekturen von Texten (Elrud Ibsch).
