Rbach was forced out of his professorship at the University of Marburg in 1935 He left for Turkey where he taught at the state niversity in Istanbul There he wrote Mimesis publishing it in German after the end of the war Displaced as he was Auerbach produced a work of great erudition that contains no footnotes basing his arguments instead on searching illuminating readings of key passages from his primary texts His aim was to show how from antiuity to the twentieth century literature progressed toward ever naturalistic and de. I will not to attempt to review a book of this scope I will briefly say that Auerbach s intention was to show how literature through the ages interpret reality He starts with Ancient Greek saga and compares it with Bible epics and shows the different intentions in eachHe moves on to the lore of the middle ages and the impact Christianity had on that literature He also analyzes the enlightenment and gives one of the most piercing and scathing observations about Voltaire s work I must say I enjoyed Auerbach reinforcing what I had always thought about Voltaire namely that the author creates fantasy worlds to prove his enlightenment points Voltaire loved stretching reality out of proportion and depicting pe This book is encompassing and MIND BENDING IN THAT SPECIFICALLY UNIUE bending in that specifically Alma Mater uniue that will make some people revere it like a religious text and will drive other people absolutely nuts As you can see from all the stars I threw at it in my rating I lean towards the former camp I can very muchnderstand whyhow someone would wind p disagreeing with Auerbach s thesis and even so with his methodology in getting there but at the same time this book has such an open ambitious and kind of lovely approach to literature that I couldn t help but falling in love with it a little And I honestly do believe that reading it will make you a better reader and a better writerAuerbach s main theme is the issue of how reality is represented in literature particularly how a relatively strict separation of styles and classes gave way in slips and bursts towards a modern sense of realism in which everyday accidentals could be imbued with tragic weight He traces the main impetus behind this trend to Christianity particularly the manner in which the story of Christ broke down traditional literary barriers by allotting tragic weight and grand importance to people who were freuently from the lowest classes of society This however did not immediately lead to a modern sense of realistic representation predominantly because Christianity also brought with it the concept of figuralism the idea that every little detail to be represented stands not only for itself but something in the future and the past all the better to tie together niversal history in a Christian framework Dante s Comedy is particularly key for Auerbach in this argument Modern realism takes longer to get going needing to proceed through a labyrinth of expressions from Shakespeare s limited mixing of styles to neo classicism in the 18th century and leading to the birth of modern realism in the Romantic movement That s a summary that really doesn t do justice to the work which is just bursting at the seams with ideas and observations Auerbach clearly knows loads of stuff about loads of things and he brings all of it to work for him here the work covers a solid 3000 years of literary history but never feels too diffuse I think a lot of that is because Auerbach grounds all of his chapters in specific concrete texts That opens him No Gentleman for Georgina (The Notorious Flynns, up to accusations that he simply cherry pickednrepresentative examples to suit his case and that s a fair point and one that Auerbach is explicitly acknowledges But I think on the whole he makes a compelling case and this work deserves 5 stars if only for its sheer breadth of ambition and imaginationPS It s an ndeniably dense book but one that can be nderstood even if you re not familiar with literary theory I that can be nderstood even if you re not familiar with literary theory I definitely not and even if you haven t read all the works he spotlights I d love to hear how a modern literary scholar would view this work MimesisBy Erich Auerbach 1892 1957Auerbach was a German philologue literature critic and author of the German Romantic tradition Mimesis or by the subtitle Imitation of Reality in Western Literature is a work of Philological analysis of selected chapters of outstanding works of literature since the beginning of recordsInstead of providing a definition to explain his aim the author takes the reader to comparisons of historical and linguistic aspects By Homer in the Odyssey the return of Ulysses to Penelope The Old Testament by early Hebraic authors God s test of Abraham s faith Petronius s Satyricon Ammianus Marcellinus report of the arrestation of Petrus Volvomeres Gr goire de Tours Histoire des Francs Rolands Song how he was appointed to lead the rearguard of the French army Chretien de Troyes Yvain the story of one of King Arthurs knights Adam a mystery Christma. A half century after its translation into English Erich Auerbach's Mimesis still stands as a monumental achievement in literary criticism A brilliant display of erudition wit and wisdom his exploration of how great European writers from Homer to Virginia Woolf depicted reality has taught generations how to read Western literature This new expanded edition includes a substantial essay in introduction by Edward Said as well as an essay never before translated into English in which Auerbach responds to his criticsA German Jew Aue.

Mocratic forms of representation This essentially optimistic view of European history now appears as a defensive and impassioned response to the inhumanity he saw in the Third Reich Ranging over works in Greek Latin Spanish French Italian German and English Auerbach sed his remarkable skills in philology and comparative literature to refute any narrow form of nationalism or chauvinism in his own day and ours For many readers both inside and outside the academy Mimesis is among the finest works of literary criticism ever writt.
