Dedicated revolutionary? Closet Christian? Extreme nihilist? Georg Buchner has always been prone to wildly differing interpretations, such is the multiplicity of his voice. Although he died when only twenty-three - an age at which Goethe had not yet even written Werther - Buchner's small handful of works count amongst the greatest achievements of modern German writing, and seem to speak to us with ever greater power and immediacy. This is the first major study of Buchner in English for nearly twenty years, and it includes radically new readings of Dantons Tod, Leonce und Lena, and Woyzeck. Showing these works in a fresh perspective, John Reddick provocatively argues that Buchner was aesthetically so far ahead of his time mainly because he was seriously behind the times in his essentially idealist premisses and aspirations. Beyond any particular interpretation, however, Reddick seeks above all to make the reader more fully alive to the sheer vitality and richness of Buchner's extraordinary oeuvre.

Metaphor and Materiality explores the relationship between literature and science from the end of the eighteenth century to the Cold War period. This wide-ranging study reveals how major works of German and Austrian literature interrogate contemporary scientific paradigms and metaphors. An introductory chapter discusses current approaches to the study of science, drawing on the work of Rorty, Kuhn and Toulmin amongst others. Subsequent chapters analyse in detail key literary works, setting them in a scientific and philosophical context: Goethe's Die Wahlverwandtschaften (1809), Buchner's Dantons Tod and Woyzeck (1835-7), Stifter's Kalkstein and Bergkristall (1853), Musil's Die Verwirrungen des Zoglings Torless (1906), and Brecht's Leben des Galilei (1955). The extensive bibliography will prove invaluable to researchers in the field of literature and science.
