Main Description
Die Studie widmet sich der ersten deutschen Ubersetzung von Apuleius Metamorphosen durch Johann Sieder von 1500. Anhand dreier Uberlieferungszeugen werden neben ubersetzerischen und buchgeschichtlichen Entwicklungen drei grundlegende Interpretationen des Goldenen Esels dargestellt und in die antiken und mittelalterlichen Traditionen der Metamorphosen-Rezeption eingeordnet. Die Verfasserin verfolgt die deutsche Rezeption des Goldenen Esels weiter bis zu Grimmelshausen, dessen Interpretation der Metamorphosen wichtige Schlusse auf die Genese des modernen Romans zulasst
Main Description
The study is devoted to the first German translation (1500) of Apuleius' »Metamorphoses« by Johann Sieder. On the basis of three transmission sources, it examines developments in translation and the history of book printing, and discusses three central interpretations of the »Golden Ass«, pinpointing their relations to ancient and medieval traditions in the reception of the »Metamorphoses«. The author traces the German reception of the »Golden Ass« as far as Grimmelshausen, whose interpretation of the »Metamorphoses« casts significant light on the genesis of the modern novel.
