'Poetry on poetry' in Minnesang and Sangspruchdichtung
(Text in German)
The central concern of this study of 'poetry on poetry' in Minnesang and Sangspruchdichtung is to elucidate the way in which different genres condition different responses to the problem of thematizing the subject of the poet's art in medieval German literature.
To this end, relevant works by authors ranging from der Kürenberger to Heinrich von Mügeln are subjected to detailed interpretation and a systematic comparison is drawn between the subjects adressed in Minnesang and Sangspruch poetry of this kind, the ways in which they are handled, the functions performed by such poems and the vocabulary and metaphors employed in them.
