'Einfache Nachahmung der Natur, Manier und Stil' - Grundbegriffe der Poetik und Ästhetik LITERARY CRITICISM / European / German (LIT).
Table of contents



Quite understandably, readers and scholars are drawn to the illusion that a popular idea had a moment of creation and a worthy creator. Despite the differences in their intel- lectual accomplishment, both men figure prominently in the nineteenth-century culture of celebrity. Yet both dandyism and WL come into existence not only because of their famous creators, but because they were quickly recorded in print and then circulated repeatedly and broadly. Both are highly self-conscious in the moment of articulation.

Brummel both counts on and ignores that everyone is watching, as does Goethe in speaking with his secretary.

Is this a private conversation, or are we addressing eternity? One key difference between the two scenes is that the concept of WL explains the conditions for its own existence, whereas dandyism veils the class structure by seeming to defy it. Weltbildung, Weltkommunikation, Weltumlauf, Weltverkehr Schrimpf The combination of on the one hand advocating for WL, while at the same time announcing its arrival as a given fact operates on both the sociological and the personal level.

Kant, on the other hand, maintained that one could speak of enlightened individuals but that one had to be much more cautious in declaring a society or era to be enlightened. Goethe took a similarly cautious long-term approach when asked to extend the notion of Bildung to all Germans. Wir Deutschen sind von gestern. Hans Reiss, trans H. We have been cultivating ourselves thoroughly and energetically for the last hundred years; nevertheless it could take a few more centuries before so much spirit and high culture seeps into our people and becomes universal… so that one could say of us that it has been a long time since they were barbarians.

World literature and the circulation of commodities To have a complete picture of how WL came into existence as a social phenomenon, we have to consider, first, the translation, performance and distribution of popular as well as sophisticated literature across the borders of Europe and then, second, the acquisition, translation, and dispersal of non-European writing along similar global networks. Crucial to this entire process is an analysis of how non-European texts were evaluated: We need to ask what norms would lead a Jesuit missionary to acquire Mandarin courtly romances, and then why would a French philologist chose one such romance a century later for translation and publication.

Then, finally, we have to consider the close proximity between commercial trade and art. Goethe himself especially liked to rely on such metaphors, borrowed from the world of trade and commerce, to elucidate his idea. First, intellectual discovery by any one reader is not governed by an academic institution, but by the exigencies of personal curiosity and what is available on the market. A world literary encounter could therefore move backwards or askew in comparison to the chronology of actual events.

During the last decades of the eighteenth century, Herder and Goethe, for example, held Chinese culture in disdain because they associated Chinese art with the chinoiserie of the aristocratic court. Only later, after their skepticism of Jesuit reports wore away and they had found their own critical interest in Chinese literature, did either of them find a means to identify with the figures in Chinese poetry and novels.

Secondly, the circulation model of WL reverses the hierarchy of authoritative texts. The reception of a foreign culture is often determined by second- or third-hand representations, ill-informed popular compilations, and sensationalized narratives. These temporal reversals are heightened by the increased importance that spatial relations have in determining the movement of WL. Spatial relations between cultures often determine any knowledge of local or regional history. The European intellectual reception of Asian literature is very much determined by the exigencies of channels of exchange established by missionary groups, merchants, and colonial administrators.

Chinese philosophical texts appeared in Europe only after they had been selected and translated by Jesuit missionaries. Sanskrit writing was first translated into European languages only after Britain had established its colonial administration on the subcontinent. Matteo Ricci —, Oxford: In other words, European interest in China and Confucianism preceded the Romantic enthusiasm for Sanskrit, Buddhism, and India simply because the Jesuit missionary links between Beijing and Rome were older and much stronger than any colonial relationship between Britain and India.

The fact that Europeans developed an affinity for Confucianism in the seventeenth century well before they learned about Buddhism in the nineteenth century had everything to do with the strength and commitments of the Jesuit mission in China.

In his comments to Eckermann, Goethe recognizes from the start how geopolitics determines world literary relations. He discusses WL within two contexts: The first level reflects the long-standing European interest in global cultural relations that goes back to the sixteenth century, and the second determining factor for Goethe is the contem- porary cessation of European-wide military conflict. Even if German intellectual interest in the Orient diverged from British and French colonial interests, Goethe well understood that the project of translating Chinese, Persian, and Indian texts was directly connected to these enterprises.

WL is a mode of translation as much as it is type of writing.

The key question for many scholars has been: When did Goethe begin to under- stand and to take Chinese culture seriously? The earliest references in the vast archive that Goethe has become are passing dismissals of chinoiserie fashion, yet already in 19 Erich Trunz provides a concise overview in HA 1: Peter Lang, , 15— This concentration of literary history on Classical texts that are understood in terms of an architectural model that organizes cultural history begins with the Jesuit translation and commentary on Confucian thought.

From the very start, missionaries sought the Classical texts of China in order to establish a parallel with Europe. Real penetration into China, Biedermann writes, starts, for Goethe, a few years later. The note is printed as ephemera in the Weimarer Ausgabe, vol. Sinensis Imperii Libri Classici Sex. Chinese Traditions and Universal Civilization Durham: Duke University Press, Wie sich in der politischen Welt irgend ein ungeheures Bedrohliches hervorthat, so warf ich mich eigensinnig auf das Entfernteste. Just as a monstrous threat was emerging in the world of politics, I threw myself into the most distant subject, which is why, having returned from Karlsbad, that I started to study the Chinese Empire seriously.

Thus, his initial comments are always framed within a well-established European tradition of China enthusiasm. Verlag Brigitte Guderjann, , — The coupling of literary and commodity circulation that the late Goethe sees as the basis for WL is precisely what the young poet rejected: The young, Sturm- und-Drang Goethe scorned the fashionable overlap of foreign goods and literature. The difference is not just a forgetful self-contradiction or the wisdom of a late style; rather, Goethe also finds an avenue into Asian literature through his philological study of Persian and Chinese texts, as well as his own efforts at writing and translating their scripts.

English Subjectivity and the Prehistory of Orientalism Oxford: Oxford University Press, The question always remains how far further beyond the conventional his interpreta- tions proceed. Andrea Polaschegg, Der andere Orientalismus: Walter de Gruyter, , Even before the publication of Die Leiden des jungen Werthers, Goethe reacts against sentimental appropriations of temporally or spatially distant styles, such as medieval Minnelieder or chinoiserie. China appears as sublime and distant, as opposed to familiar and decorative, both as geographical space and as a written language.

His travels fall into the second half of the thirteenth century.
