Layman Poupard hits a milestone this week, delivering its 100th volume of Nineteenth-Century Literature Criticism since taking over production of the series in 2010 with Nineteenth-Century Literature Criticism: Volume 243.
Nineteenth-Century Literature Criticism: Volume 342, published by Gale Cengage, features entries on Danish fairy-tale author Hans Christian Andersen and Michael Kohlhaas, a novella by German Heinrich von Kleist. Each entry in the Literature Criticism Series contains reprinted critical essays detailing the literary scholarship of the subjects. In the Andersen NCLC entry, you will find essays such as Rupin W. Desai’s detailing Andersen’s literary influence on William Butler Yeats, and Kirsten Malmkjaer’s analysis of punctuation in Andersen’s stories and their translations.
The entry on Michael Kohlhaas details the novel’s plot, major themes, and critical reception. Featured essays include Rolf King’s examination of religious leader Martin Luther’s portrayal in the novella, and Clayton Koelb’s discussion of textual authority as a theme.
Nineteenth-Century Literature Criticism: Volume 342 is scheduled for publication in Autumn 2017.
