...writer of novels and stories, he owed something to C. F. Gellert , whom he knew personally in his youth, and also to Sterne and Fielding; he became well known to the public, but also to the censors. He then fell into virtual obscurity until his rediscovery (attributed to Arno Schmidt ). His criticism is directed against petty social and political hypocrisy as well as excessive surrender to either reason (Vernunft) or sentiment ( Empfindsamkeit ). The following titles deserve mention: Lebensgeschichte Tobias Knauts des Weisen, sonst der Stammler genannt ...

His deep sounding in DE 38/39 established the presence of a thick Jemdet Nasr stratum followed by a “Flood stratum” and then more than 6 m of ED I–II deposits.

She herself singles out the period between 1966 and 1971 as her ‘experimental years’ during which she concentrated mainly on the manipulation of language ( see Konkrete Poesie and Dadaismus , though in Fantom Fan she was also influenced by Arno Schmidt ).

Consequently the steady-state theory proved attractive to a number of cosmologists and crucial evidence only emerged against it in the 1960s.

In 1968 news of a new type of star, a pulsar, was published by Jocelyn Bell and Antony Hewish . The...

...Johann Karl ( 1747–1819 ) Johann Karl Wezel , one of Arno Schmidt's ‘Schreckensmänner’ (‘horrors’) of the Enlightenment, was more than a prolific novelist. His critical writings and reviews, especially his contribution to late-eighteenth-century anthropology, also established him as a philosopher. Wezel was born on 31 October 1747 in the small town of Sondershausen, the residential seat of the principality of Schwarzburg-Sondershausen in Thuringia. His father worked as a royal cook to the prince as well as acting as his confidant. In May 1765 , after...

...His work represents alternative yet marginalized voices of the dominant discourses surrounding Goethe, Hegel , Weimar classicism and mainstream romanticism. Jean Paul admired Rousseau, Sterne and Cervantes and was subsequently celebrated by Carlyle, Walter Benjamin and Arno Schmidt .

He challenged the notion of metaphor as secondary language structure or as ‘shortened simile’ (Quintilian) and instead argued with Vico and Herder that the language of images...
