Originally published in 1990, this massive work of scholarship provides an invaluable reference tool for efficient textual investigation to a medieval masterpiece and one of the most significant Middle High German poems. Function words and selected high frequency words with related forms, omitted from many concordances, are given in single verse context in the Verse Concordance. The shorter format offers enough information for most research needs, and certainly enough to indicate where recourse to the text itself is required. While the Key Word in Context (KWIC) concordance is in traditional text-order, headwords in the verse concordance are sorted on neighbouring words to the right to reveal patterns which would otherwise remain undisclosed because of sheer numbers.

Originally published between 1938 and 1996, the volumes in this set provide a survey of German poetry, prose and fiction from the Middle Ages to the late 20th Century. In many cases no prior knowledge of German is necessary, as translations into English are provided. Many of the books focus particularly on German writers and literature from an international perspective.
