Minnesang diesseits des Frauendienstes und der Kanzonenstrophe


Benz, Maximilian (2014). Minnesang diesseits des Frauendienstes und der Kanzonenstrophe. Beitraege zur Geschichte der Deutschen Sprache und Literatur, 136(4):569-600.

Abstract

In this paper, the author contests Helmut de Boor’s widespread labelling of the early Minnesang verses as the ›Danubian tradition‹ by revealing his unfortunate blending of topographical, textual, formal and genre-related aspects. The argument is based on a selection of early stanzas that have not absorbed Franco-Provençal influences such as the strophic form of the canzone or the idea of love service. In the manuscript tradition, some of these in the first place anonymous verses have been attributed to Der von Kürenberg, the Burggraf von Regensburg, Leutholt von Seven, Waltram von Gresten and Niune. At this point they are newly conceptualized as witnesses of a collective art form. Therefore, these early verses constitute an own sub-genre and can be distinguished from the later corpora rightly attributed to the Burggraf von Rietenburg, Meinloh von Sevelingen and Dietmar von Aist.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
