Owê, nu ist ez tac!

A scenario describing the pain experienced by lovers who must part at daybreak seems to have been the subject of lyrical reflection almost the world over and since well before the time of Christ. In the European Middle Ages, the dawn song (Tagelied) enjoyed particular popularity in the German tradition. The fundamental narrative constellation concerns a sequence of events consisting of awakening, lamentation and farewell, depicted as narrative action with dialogue. Between the 12th and 15th centuries, this pattern is repeated, redrawn and almost endlessly varied; the subject of the dawn song is recreated, inverted, parodied and removed to a spiritual level. The primary texts will be read in their original language; in addition to the discussion of the place of the dawn song in medieval German literature, therefore, this course seeks to offer participants the opportunity to develop and enhance reading skills in Middle High German.
