Translation Lebensbeschreibung of Gutz Von Berlichingen Memoirs Self Defense

To prepare a translation, with introduction and commentary, of the Memoirs of Gotz von Berlichingen, a 16th century "robber baron." Known chiefly through Goethe's dramatic romanticization of him, the Baron's eighty years of acutely self-conscious recollections (1481-1561) span the transitional period from late medieval to early modern times and contain many detailed accounts of legal, political and military maneuvers. The translation will form part of the material for an interdisciplinary seminar in the spring of 1980.
